URGENT! Suggestion for microscope

Post by Dr.Stein » Mon Feb 26, 2007 1:53 am

Would you please give me some suggestions on microscope, please? I need to purchase some microscopes for students, which we will use it for haematology and histology observation. Links and/or pics will be okay if it would be classified as ads, which does not allowed in this forum. Or, you can PM me for specs. Thank you very much.

I tried to reply to this yesterday, but the site was too wonky (it still is, to some extent).

I would just warn you that, if possible (and I'm not sure it is), stay away from microscopes manufactured in China. We've gotten a couple of different types in the last years, and they were both defective upon delivery and very prone to problems soon after.

What about US product? I read the specification and it is quite similar to Japan product, but this US thing price is just a half of Japan thing. I also read comments from customers who purchased it. It is Omano.

I wasn't aware that there was an American (as in produced in the U.S.) product. There are a lot of American vendors...

I've been looking at internet sites, and most of them don't mention where the products are made - it's probably something you'd have to ask.

Omano E-ZVU digital LCD microscopes as well as a full range of monocular, binocular and trinocular microscopes for research, biological, student and other professional applications are good enough with a limited life time warrenty.

Omano 10x-30x Stereo Trinocular Microscope also avialable.

Hmmmm. I missed them. Never heard of the company, but that's not necessarily a bad thing - guess I'm just not paying attention.

Thank you. I already visited the page, that's why I got the clue to try Omano microscope. It seems great but still affordable :)
