SOME THOUGHTS FOR THE MICROSCOPIST SHOPPING FOR A NEW INSTRUMENT OR ACCESSORIES FOR THEIR EXISTING "WORKHORSE".....
These days we have all experienced the inconvenience of restricted travel and having to communicate with associates, students and commercial vendors via the internet. Zoom was launched at a good time that is for sure!
Thanks to websites such as YouTube and Vimeo we can all find useful information for due diligence pertaining to new products and methods. This is all very important to anyone using an optical microscope and digital imaging tools.
Unfortunately there are many providers of information on the internet that do not know what they are talking about. It is up to those who wish to be "educated consumers" to study any information found on-line carefully....very carefully. Our goal at Bunton is to sort out the B.S. and inaccuracies in the world of microscopy and point the microscopist in the right direction for their due diligence and quest for correct use of their microscopy and imaging tools in the lab. Our extensive roster of YouTube presentations was a start. More is coming from Bunton and our associates ....stay tuned to our website and YouTube channel.
TIP-OF-THE-DAY: The useful magnification of an objective lens is based on the numerical aperture engraved on that objective. A typical 10x achromat will have a n.a. = 0.25. This objective used with a 10x ocular will result in a visual mag of 100x. The rule is to never exceed 1000 times the n.a.. In this case 250x. Any mag beyond 250x is called "empty magnification". No improvement in resolution beyond 250x.....the image is actually degraded.
Confused by the many on-line microscope seller's websites? Most of these products come from China. Very few are familiar with the needs of beginning hobby and citizen microscopists seeking "reasonably priced" microscopes with "high quality optics", contrasting methods (darkfield, phase contrast, polarized light, oblique illumination)....and the ability to add a camera of some sort. Even students will benefit from simple and inexpensive devices to enhance a basic brightfield microscope. Very few even know the benefits of using an inverted microscope for many applications and areas of interest. Prospective microscope buyers must invest their time and due diligence to learn the basics of light microscopy and write down their desired requirements and budget limits for their purchase decision-making.
Consider fine old microscopes such as those from the NOZL firms (Nikon, Olympus, Zeiss and Leitz).....look at the prices on Ebay. A Leitz Ortholux basic stand can be had for less than the price of a Chinese-made teaching microscope. Most used microscopes found on Ebay will need service and/or repairs. They usually are in need of basic items like light sources, objectives to meet your requirements and accessories for contrasting methods. We can help you if you want to make this a DIY project....free advice. The other option is to let us do the work for you and you end up with a complete functional microscope that is bespoke for the beginning microscopist or advanced hobbyist looking for the next step up in their home-lab. We stand ready to be of service! We specialize in the Leitz microscopes from about 1965 to 1990. Visit our microscope offering pages for the lineup.
