Brunel SX10D Digital Stereomicroscope

This is a brand new SX10 with an inbuilt 3M digital camera that works perfectly. However there are two small faint marks seen in the image when there is no specimen present - on a ‘busy’ specimen they can hardly be seen. We have been unable to find and remove these blemishes and would not advise the purchaser to attempt to dismantle the unit - it is complicated in there. However the software and USB cables are provided along with IT support if needed all for no charge with the microscope being sold at slightly less than the price of our non digital SX10. Incident and transmitted LED illumination with button brightness control. Magnification options x10, x20 and x40.


Brunel IMXZ Mk1

This microscope has been used by ourselves for various projects over the last few years. It is in perfect working order and cosmetically excellent. The Mk 1IMXZ had fixed illumination systems which have now been replaced with brightness controlled lighting in all other respects the current model is the same as this. Trinocular head with x10 wide field eyepieces and camera lever. Zoom magnification x10 to x40. Pole stand coarse focus and rack and pinion fine focus. Top and transmitted halogen illumination Full guarantee


Brunel SX10 Stereomicroscope

This is a new microscope used only by ourselves for customer demonstrations. One of our most popular entry level stereomicroscopes having three magnifications built in. Magnifications x10, x20 and x40 are achieved simply by rotating the turret which clicks into place for each magnification change. The SX10 has pole stand coarse focus with a rack and pinion fine focus. Brightness controlled LED top and transmitted illumination. Fully guaranteed.
