MELVILLE, NY-Nikon Instruments, manufacturer of microscopes, precision measuring equipment, digital imaging products and softwares, is giving a sneak peak of the 2009 Small World finalist images with the inclusion of its “Identify the Image” game. The game, which offers the opportunity to interact with microscopic images of items that can not be seen with the naked eye, gives players a series of five images and asks them to correctly identify each photomicrograph. The series of images will be updated with a new set of five images daily. The game is available on the Nikon Small World Web site at

"This game offers people a fun way to interact with these beautiful photographs," says Eric Flem, communications manager, Nikon Instruments. "In updating the game for this year, we hope to encourage an increased interest in science and a better understanding of the broad scope of microscopy."

Now in its 35th year, Nikon Small World competition celebrates the world's best photomicrographers who create beautiful imagery while showcasing a wide variety of advanced scientific disciplines. Nikon Small World recognizes photomicrographers for their achievements in capturing dynamic images at the intersection of science and art.
