Brunel Desk Top 1.3M Microscope

The ideal hand held microscope for the office, workshop or home use. The Desk Top Microscope is a digital system  that provides an image directly to a laptop or PC for viewing. This microscope has a magnification range of x10 to x200 and has in built LED illumination with brightness control. The corded 1.3M unit connects by a USB lead to a USB2 on the laptop or PC and has a polarising filter built in that reduces the ‘glare’ from reflective surfaces. The unit takes still images and video clips with the ability to make measurements on the captured images. Used only by ourselves for customer demonstrations.

Price £50 + vat

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. Stand not included

Lawrence and Mayo Binocular

Lawrence and Mayo are an Indian microscope supplier. This unit is in very good condition and offers many of the elements found in microscopes at a much higher price. The unit does have a trinocular port but we have no adapter that will allow a camera to be attached so we have described as binocular. It also has Kohler illumination but the adjusters on this are not brilliant. Having started with the down elements for the price it is an absolute bargain. Objectives x4, x10, x40 and x100 oil immersion giving a magnification range of x40 to x1000. Full mechanical stage with drop down controls and a focusing substage condenser. 6v 30watt halogen lighting with full brightness control. Low position coarse and fine coaxial focus controls. A bargain at this price.

Brunel SP10A Monocular

Young potential scientists need encouraging, and the best way to do this is by giving them equipment that actually works and is not a toy replica that looks nice with all sorts of accessories. All to often after the initial enthusiasm the results that were hoped for are not there and as a result the potential turns into disappointment and then the enthusiasm for science is lost for ever. This microscope is a full size instrument made from metal not plastic. It has a separate coarse and fine focus control, and the stage as slide clips to hold the image still. Mirror illumination with a series of aperture discs to control the illumination effect. The objectives are x4, x10 and x40 with x10 wide field eyepieces that give a magnification range of x40 to x400. Condition as new and fully guaranteed. A bargain indeed



Lensman Handheld Microscope

Asa microscope the Lensman was an optical revolution which should have continued production to this day. Sadly this did not happen and it cannot be anything to do with the performance of this beautifully engineered hand held microscope. We can only assume that the problems must have been with the cost of its production or the business model applied. However this is an excellent example of this unique microscope. The Lensman offers two magnifications for slide study of x80 and x200. The slides are held in place by a circular magnet and this particular example has the original NBS example slides and micrographs. Complete with its original packaging. This is now almost a collectors item.

BMS Trinocular Microscope

BMS is a respected German brand name, and this is one of their high power compound microscopes in good condition. It has a good solid base with coaxial coarse and fine focus controls with a brightness control towards the front of the base. The objectives are Achromatic and DIN standard with magnifications x4, x10, x40 and x100 oil immersion which with the x10 wide field eyepieces gives a magnification range of x40 to x1000. The illumination system is based on a 12 volt 20 watt lamp which is ideal for all slide specimens. The trinocular head has a slider which allows the image to go either to the binocular eyetubes or to the trinocular tube and therefore any camera which is attached. A bargain by any measure.
