Brunel TV Zoomview

The Zoomview is a handheld microscope that can magnify up to x200 and display an image on any television through the AV port. Simply tune the television to the correct AV channel and the image appears automatically. The Zoomview is cordless and will work up to 30 feet away from its docking centre allowing the unit to obtain images from all sorts of difficult to reach places. The docking station simply attaches to the television via its AV lead and the Zoomview communicates with the docking station by wireless. The built in LED lights have a brightness control and produce really clear coloured images.  As well as being a handheld microscope, the Zoomview will also focus into the distance like a normal CC TV camera. In the box is the Handheld Zoomview Microscope, the docking station, transformer plug with recharging lead and the leads to connect the docking station to the television. For TV and projectors, but would need a TV video encoder to work with a computer. Used only by ourselves for customer demonstrations.

This is a very good example of probably one of the last UK manufactured polarising microscopes. This model is noted for its build quality and therefore robustness. Coxial coarse and fine focus controls. Large rotating circular stage with chapter ring and stage clips. Substage condenser with iris diaphragm. Objectives x5, x10, x20 and x40 with x10 wide field eyepieces. Rotating polarising filter with a in/our analyser.

SOLD

Vickers Patholette Trinocular

There can be no doubt that Vickers made microscopes that were both robust and distinctive in style and the Patholette was certainly one of those. This is good example and only features on our ‘bargains' tab because the turret ‘catches’ a little as it rotates. This does not in anyway interfere with its function or optical performance but does deserve a price advantage. It is all original which also makes it somewhat of a collectors item. Objectives x4, x10, x40 and x100 (oil immersion) with x10 compensating eyepieces together with a x6 photoeyepiece in the trinocular eyetube. Mechanical stage with drop down coaxial controls positioned in the front of the stage. Coaxial coarse and fine focus controls situated in the centre of the circular base. Focusing condenser with iris and filter carrier. Tungsten illumination.

Brunel Fibre Optic Light Source

This has to be one of the best value for money stand alone cold light sources available. LED lighting has revolutionised cold light source units and this particular product is without doubt the market leader when it comes to cooling fan noise. It is quiet, so quiet that on occasion it is difficult to know when the unit is running.

The on/off switch and rheostat control are situated on the front panel and the unit has a fold flat carrying handle on the roof of the power pack. Because the unit is LED light based the traditional method of comparing units by wattage output no longer applies. However the output of this unit in our opinion surpasses that of a traditional 150 watt unit. As with all LED units the heat gain is minimal and therefore ideal for heat sensitive specimens such as insects. This unit is available at an exceptional saving because the double arms ‘rock’ slightly  - otherwise perfect.
