This OMAX binocular biological compound microscope offers six magnifications between 40X and 2500X. The lab microscope comes with a 45 inclined 360 swiveling binocular sliding viewing head, two pairs of widefield eyepieces with an adjustable diopter on oculars, four achromatic objectives, stain-resistant double layer mechanical stage with scales, coarse and fine focusing on both sides, NA 1.25 Abbe condenser with iris diaphragm and variable intensity LED transmitted illumination system. This type of microscope is perfect for home school, teaching, demonstration, clinical examination, laboratories, and advanced applications. It is easy to mount an electronic eyepiece (digital microscope camera) for capturing images and live video on a computer. It can also be added a darkfield condenser to switch a brightfield microscope to a darkfield microscope.
I am a programmer with over 12 years' experience gained in a range of industries, the last 16 with IBM.
The first program I sold controlled stock movement in a warehouse, and ran on a CP/M computer - both the program and operating system lived in the 64 kb (yes, kilobytes) that was all CP/M systems had in those days.
I have gained experience in a wide range of industries including Utilities, Retail, Insurance and the Motor Manufacturing industry. My clients and employers have included Northumbrian Water, Arcadia, Royal Sun Alliance, Nissan and Jaguar Landrover. I also worked for Sunderland University for 3 years preparing and delivering training courses in computing.
Times have changed, the challenges are very different to what they were, but programming remains fun!
When not at my computer, I am often riding my motorbike through the wonderful countryside of the UK and Europe.
