Clinical microscopes

Friday, 05 October, 2007


VanGuard Microscopes has released a series of clinical compound microscopes.

The 1300 series microscopes have focusing controls that are low on the base to alleviate wrist strain.

To increase the comfort of the models they have high eyepoint, wide eyepieces and soft eyecups. The eyepieces save users who wear glasses from having to remove them when viewing a specimen. Those with perfect vision and those who wear glasses can expect a clear image.

The new microscopes support Koehler illumination, a process that promotes uniform brightness and eliminates glare.

Users can centre the field diaphragm to optimise the passage of light through the specimen and out the eyepieces.

The device also has an infinity optical system, a feature traditionally limited to high-end research microscopes.

There are nine different models in the series suitable for various applications. Brightfield models use the most common illumination technique while phase contrast models use special lighting configurations to induce contrast without staining, especially useful in wine making, biological applications and asbestos testing.
