We have a small quantity of these extremely well built Vickers microscopes. All original and therefore also collectors pieces. Large stable illumination base with 6v 15watt lighting. Stage with slide clips and usual substage condenser with iris. Coaxial coarse and fine focus controls. Objectives x5, x10 and x40 with x10 eyepiece. Very good value for a vintage British made microscope.

Brunel SP30 Monocular
There is a reason why this microscope has been probably our best seller during the last 15 years or so. It marries together optical performance with mechanical durability. Easy for us to say -
WSM08 Monocular Microscope
This is a new monocular microscope ideal for the student or as a quality instrument for beginners and is one of the best value microscopes in this web site. This microscope looks as microscopes should and is an ideal starter instrument for microscopists of all ages. Objectives x4, x10 and x40 giving a magnification range of x40 to x400 with the x10 wide field eyepiece included. Slide clips with aperture disc lighting control. Mirror illumination and separate coarse and fine focus controls

Brunel SP22 Monocular
Originally sold by ourselves this is a very good value monocular microscope. Achromatic x4, x10, x40 and x100 (oil immersion) objectives with x10 wide field eyepieces giving a magnification range of x40 to x1000. Mechanical stage with drop down coaxial controls and double vernier scale. Substage condenser with iris diaphragm. Coaxial coarse and fine focus controls. LED light source with brightness control. Condition excellent.
An ex demonstration microscope used only by ourselves for a few months. Objectives (standard RMS) x4, x10 and x40 giving an overall magnification of x40 to x400 with the x10 wide field eyepiece. Coaxial coarse and fine focus controls. This microscope has two light sources, both brightness controlled. The transmitted light is used for examining standard microscope slides and the top light enables solid objects such as insects, leaves etc to be examined at x40 and x100 (the x40 objectives gets too close to the specimen to let the top light in). An ideal starter microscope for the young scientist.
Euromex Monocular Microscope
Aimed at the educational and schools market this is a very robustly built microscope from Holland. There are several minor chips to the body paint work which in no way detracts from its performance. An ideal starter budget instrument -

Brunel SP60 Mk1 Trinocular
Used only by ourselves for customer demonstrations . This is the SP60 Mk1 model which has now gone through some style changes to the current model. Trinocular head with x10 wide field eyepieces. Achromatic objectives x4, x10, x40 and x100 (oil immersion). Mechanical stage with double vernier scales and drop-
One of the classic student microscopes from a Japanese manufacturer. The Swift model is the M3200 Ultralite which has achromatic objectives x4, x10, x40 and x100 (oil immersion) which with the x10 eyepieces gives a magnification range of x40 to x1000 making it an ideal introduction to microscopy for the young scientist. Separate coarse and fine focus controls. The stage has slide clips and a fixed condenser lens with an aperture ring diaphragm mechanism. 240 volts 20 watt illumination system. Good value

Binocular Brunel Dual Microscope
There are not many occasions that excite microscopists, but the introduction of this dual function microscope is one of those rare events. It has always been a truth that because of the laws of light physics you need two microscopes for both slide examination and low power whole object study. This microscope manages to bridge both functions in a very clever way. Its key components are a removable circular slide stage with an integral Abbe condenser. This can be removed easily and replaced with either a black/white dissection plate or a petri dish and the whole assembly can be moved up and down the rack and pinion dovetail to massively increases the working distance. This is to facilitate the working distance of the x2 objective which is approximately 100mm. The other objectives are x4, x10, x40 and x100 (oil immersion) that have normal short high power microscope working distances. In net effect with the standard circular stage in place this is a high power microscope with a magnification range of x40 to x1000 and suitable for slide examination. Alternatively with the circular stage removed, replaced with the petri dish and lowered, the x2 objective gives a x20 low power view suitable for whole objects that are illuminated by the flexible LED light from above. Both this light and the transmitted light have brightness control. Whilst this microscope almost ‘squares the circle’ in microscopy terms, and the x2 objective gives an image very similar to standard stereomicroscopes it is still inverted like all compound microscopes. It is therefore ideal for low power examination of whole objects but not dissection because of the inverted image.
The Brunel SP28 is an innovation. This microscope design is exclusive to Brunel Microscopes and is manufactured for us to our own design. The SP28 bridges a gap. In microscopy there is always a choice to be made between high power microscopes to look at transparent specimens on microscope slides and low power stereomicroscopes to look at whole objects that are not transparent. The flexible light arm means that top light can be applied with the low power objectives -
