Watson Microsystem 70
A fine example of this classic Watson monocular microscope. This is an all original microscope making it a collectors piece as well as a good optical instrument. Objectives x4. X10 and x40 with x10 eyepiece. Rheostat controlled halogen illumination. Focusing condenser with iris. Stage clips
Price £137.50 + vat
Brunel DM1 Low Power Microscope
This is a new monocular low power microscope ideal for the student or as a quality instrument for beginners. The microscope gives a x20 overall magnification which is ideal for most natural history applications -
Price £54.17 + vat
Vickers Long Arm Stereomicroscope
One of the classic Vickers microscopes. This is a long arm stereo with an overall magnification of x10. The long arm can be positioned on the base pole to suit the size of the specimen and the rack and pinion attached to the binocular head allows the fine focus. Behind the stereo head there is an incident light source that can be adjusted to illuminate the area that the stereo head can see. Condition good for its age.
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
Price £50.00 + vat
A monocular entry level polarising microscope used only by ourselves for assessment purposes. Objectives x4, x10 and x40, rotating graduated circular stage. Rotating polarising filter with graduations. Fixed analyser filter. Coaxial coarse and fine focus controls. 6v 20 watt quartz halogen illumination with brightness control.
SP160 Binocular Microscope
Quadruple objective turret with x4, x10 and x40 x100 oil infinity plan objectives giving the magnification options of x40, x100 and x400 x1000 with the x10 wide filed eyepiece. Slide holder, drop down coaxial controls. 6 volt 20 watt variable light with an abbe condenser.. Easy to change light box. Separate coarse and fine focus controls. Ideal workhorse for a busy veterinary or water treatment laboratory. Excellent value.
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 -

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 incresae 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.
Price £354.17 + vat
This is a new microscope used only by ourselves for assessment purposes. Ideal for the beginner and student. A good strong stable stand with separate coarse and fine focus controls and mirror illumination. There is a full mechanical stage with drop down controls and a focusing substage condenser with iris diaphragm. RMS screw thread achromatic objectives x4, x10, x40 and x100 which with the x10 wide field eyepieces gives a magnification range of x40 to x1000.
Price £116.67 + vat
