The Brunel Westbury microscopes are ideal for those who need a microscope for fish disease identification that is also suitable for wider applications. The Westbury microscopes will not diagnose diseases that the much cheaper SP20 will fail to see, however it is more sophisticated in the way it works and it has the potential for other uses such as for example dark ground microscopy (with accessories) that are not essential for fish disease identification but useful should you wish to extend your knowledge and application of microscopy.

The SP30 is monocular and the SP40 binocular, but in all other respects the microscope stand is the same. The SP40 is more expensive due to the complex prisms needed for a binocular head.

Technical Specification:

The SP30 has a fully rotating monocular head with x10 widefield eyepiece and the SP40 a pair of eyepieces with full independent eyetube focus and distance adjustment.

The Westbury microscopes are of a modern design with a backwards facing four position turret with DIN standard achromatic objectives giving a magnification range of x40 to x1000. The x40 and x100 objectives have retracting spring loaded front lens elements to protect the slide, for additional slide safety the coarse focus control has a variable focus stop that can restrict the upwards movement of the stage. The x100 objective is an oil immersion lens.

The Westbury series microscopes have a wide range of accessories that includes digital photography adapters, teaching head (for the SP30) and a range of CCTV cameras that allow both TV and computer screen viewing.

Both microscopes can be supplied with our disease identification kit that contains everything needed to prepare skin scrapes and gill swabs, together with a detailed booklet showing examples of what to look for.
