Carnation, Washington (PressExposure) August 15, 2009 -- (PRWEB) -- National Microscope Exchange has offered the VanGuard line of VanGuard 1400 Series microscopes for many years. Recently the manufacture upgraded the series to include several major improvements including infinity-corrected optics, high-eyepoint eyepieces and darkfield illumination on all phase contrast microscopes.
What does this mean to the end user? Infinity-Corrected Optics eliminate the fatigue and strain associated with working long hours over a microscope. High-eyepoint widefield eyepieces save users who wear eyeglasses from having to remove them when viewing a specimen. Those with perfect vision and those who wear glasses can expect a clear image. Integrated Koehler Illumination promotes uniform brightness and eliminates glare. Users can center the field diaphragm to optimize the passage of light through the specimen and out the eyepieces, part of achieving Koehler illumination. Brightfield, Darkfield, & Phase Contrast induce contrast without staining, enabling colorless components of living cells and bacteria to be viewed.
VanGuard has continually offered an affordable, high-quality line of microscopes and stereoscopes. The wide range of products allows you to purchase the perfect microscope for any application, whether it is for use in a clinical environment, veterinary office, research facility or home-schooling.
âVanGuard microscopes are as easy to buy as they are to use,â stated National Microscope Exchange President Rowland Brasch, adding, âThe VanGuards are designed as complete microscope systems so users donât have to fuss around with an endless list of parts essential to using the microscopes.â On the other hand, additional extended options are available, such as digital camera packages, plan fluorite objectives, and eyepiece reticles, also called eyepiece micrometers.
As the exclusive authorized U.S. Service Depot for VanGuard products such as compound microscopes and stereo microscopes, and ATAGO brix refractometers and polarimeters, National Microscope Exchange is also able to offer products in both lines. National Microscope Exchangeâs website site provides instructions on how to ship your microscopes and refractometers in for warranty repairs, service, annual maintenance and traceable calibrations. The site also includes packing instructions for shipment, and an informational page of Frequently Asked Questions for both microscopes and refractometers.
