Reichert Zetopan Trinocular

This is one of the great classic microscopes of our time. Built in a modular way these microscopes can be adapted for all applications. This is one of the later models with the 12 volt 100 watt illumination system and has the original Reichert transformer box which is unusual these days. Mechanically this microscope is in excellent condition. The only negative is that there are some marks on the paint of the base. Apart from the microscope is in very good condition. Objectives x20 (n.a. 0.65), x40 (n.a. 0.65), x63 (oil immersion)(n.a. 1.00) and x100 (oil immersion)(n.a.1.25). With x8 plan eyepieces. Kohler illumination and an epi illumination system that only needs the incident light unit. A nice microscope.

Brunel SP95i Inverted Microscope

This is an ex demonstration unit used only by ourselves and is fully guaranteed. This is an inverted biological microscope ideal for cell culture and microbiology examinations of all types. It has a binocular viewing head and a camera port.  The binocular head has extra widefield x10 eyepieces with full interocular and dioptric adjustment. High performance, long working distance planachromatic objectives x10, x10 phase contrast, x25 and x40. The specimen stage measures 200 x 155mm and is fitted with a circular and rectangular removable plate, to give inspection ports to suit petri dishes and cell culture equipment. Drop down coaxial movement controls with a traversing distance of 75mm (X axis) and 50mm (Y axis).  The illumination system is 6 volt 20 watt rheostat controlled quartz halogen with full lamp centring and focus controls. The unit is fitted with a field iris diaphragm which enables Kohler illumination. Condition as new


Brunel SP300P Polarising Microscope

Used only by ourselves for customer demonstrations and fully guaranteed. Trinocular head with full interocular and dioptric adjustment, supplied complete with x10 widefield and crosshair eyepieces. Slider analyser filter with a remote rotating circular scale that is very easy and convenient to use. This graduated control rotates the internal analyser. Slide in Bertrand lens with lateral position adjusters to ensure centralising in the optical path for conoscopic examination. The polarising head unit houses a filter slot to accommodate the quartz wedge, wavelength and quarter wavelength retardation plates. Quadruple objective turret with x4, x10, x40 and x60 planachromatic long working distance, strain free polarising objectives. Three of the settings have lateral adjustment to allow the objectives to be centred in the optical path. The fourth objective (x10 recommended) is centred using the lateral adjusters of the specimen stage.The SP300P has low position coaxial coarse and fine focus controls with tension adjustment and variable focus stop. The microscope has a full Kohler illumination system with a field lens and iris diaphragm.  Rheostat controlled 6 volt 20 watt illumination system.

Brunel SP110MBD

This unit has been used by ourselves for customer demonstrations. The SP110M Series are extremely versatile metallurgical microscopes. The pole stand and base arrangement allows large surface areas as well as very thick materials to be examined. These are an ideal instruments for the inspection of surfaces of all types and electronic circuit boards for example. It is also extremely effective for specimen measurement. The SP110BD can toggle between bright and dark field observation simply, by a push/pull lever. Similarly polarisation filters can be introduced to the optical path, and the polarising filter can be rotated through 360° via a thumb wheel arrangement. Objectives x5, x10, x20 and x50, with x10 wide field eyepieces. A massive saving

Meiji ML80000 Series Universal Microscope

This is a Meiji ML series with both transmitted and incident light sources making it suitable for both biological slides and also the study of opaque surfaces such as metals etc. It has the light sources controlled independently. The transmitted system is integral to the base and is 6v 20 watt with a full Kohler light path with filed and substage iris diaphragms. The incident lighting is from a separate 6v 20 watt transformer box  There are semi plan Meiji objectives x4, x10, x40 and x100 (oil immersion) and a new x20 plan objective that is parfocal with the other objectives. x10 extra wide field Meiji eyepieces. Unusually the microscope has both binocular and trinocular heads that are easily interchangeable. Its general condition is very good with the only negative being that the trinocular head has a few small paint chips and was obviously added at some stage from the used market. Polarising filters are present for both light paths. Great value for a quality microscope.

Dino-Lite AD-7013MTL

This is a new professional grade long working distance unit. It has a 5M pixel camera with 8 white LED illumination. Its magnification range is x20 to x90 and the working distance ranges from 5cm at x90 up to 15cm at x20. This is the highest resolution Dino-Lite to date and is complete with  software DinoCapture for Windows and DinoXcope for MacOS  which allows still image and video capture together with measurement. The current list price is £761.96 + vat. This is therefore an exceptional bargain simply because we no longer have the Dino-Lite packaging
