Education is one of the most critical drivers in any nation since it can have a strong influence on social and economic development as well as transforming standards of living for its citizens. The education sector can be separated into a various segments like hospitals, universities, scientific labs, diagnostic labs, research centres, colleges, clinics and more.

The main challenge of these educational sectors is normally they are looking for a good quality microscope at an affordable price. They need a microscope that allows a sharper view into the specimens with good illumination. Other requirements for microscopes in these sectors usually include compact footprint, robustness, stages that can accept of a wide range of containers and a comfortable viewing position.

Vision Engineering’s upright and inverted microscopes (DX21/DX41/DX61) are typical of the quality equipment chosen by professional scientists and researchers. They provide clear and high contrast images, as well as reducing fatigue and eyestrain. They are solid, easy to use and most importantly, reliable.

Academic teaching

For educational and teaching purposes it is important for teacher and student to be able to see the subject simultaneously.

This can be either achieved by adding multi-viewing attachments, or by adding a camera to the microscope to digitally capture the image.

These recorded images can then be shared and analysed at a later date. The DX41 routine microscope has both these options and makes it ideal for teaching and academic use.

Human lives have been prolonged due to advanced scientific research and new medicines resulting from medical research. There are numerous examples; vaccines for measles and polio, insulin treatment for diabetes, medication for high blood pressure and antibiotics for tuberculosis and malaria treatment and many more.

Cell and tissue analysis

The use of inverted routine laboratory microscopes are particularly suited to tissue culture applications. The DX61 compound microscope is especially advantageous, with its infinity corrected optics and the option of a wide range of accessories.

Cell and tissue analysis

Its observation modes include brightfield illumination, fluorescence and phase contrast, with a pre-centred phase contrast slider making operation straightforward.

Using a Vision Engineering biological microscope is not only ergonomic, but also comes with the options of ISIS, a wide angle patented “Expanded Pupil eyepiece” which optimises operator eye relief and head movement and well as improving efficiency.
