For a long time using cheaper digital cameras with a microscope and a computer has not been quite as straightforward as some suppliers have claimed. Mainly because of differences between computers that has produced difficulties with the drivers needed to get these cameras to work. No more. The minigrab is completely driverless and now correctly belongs to the 'plug and play' group of products. You simply plug the camera lead into a USB2.0 port on your laptop or PC (sadly not suitable for MAC at the moment) and it will be recognised and installed by your laptop/computer in exactly the same way as a memory stick. You can then display the images from your microscope in any video software you already have on your computer or use the Minisee software supplied with the camera. You can take video clips and still images (as jpegs) and store these on your computer. The Minigrab will fit all of the microscopes in the Apex range. An ingenious accessory at an exceptional price. Microscope in picture is Apex Practitioner, not included with the minigrab
The Apex Researcher is a laboratory microscope for the serious scientist and those that like to use good equipment.
Apex Researcher Case
The ideal accessory for the Apex Researcher microscope. A well made robust aluminium attache case designed to support this scientific instrument during transport and also act as a home storage unit to keep the microscope clean and safe. Re-enforced aluminium edges, double latch and carrying handle.
The New Apex Learner is an upgrade to our original Learner brand. This is an exceptionally versatile microscope that can be used to look at slide preparations up to x800 magnification and also whole objects - illuminated by the incident light unit at magnifications up to x150. This allows the examination of objects without the need to make slides.
A microscope for looking at whole objects in 3D without the need to prepare slides. Look at any object immediately at x20 and x40 magnifications. Take a new look at the world around you. The Apex Discovery produces crisp, sharp, high contrast images that are enhanced by the inbuilt LED lighting system that allows top light and bottom light to be used together or separately to suit the type of specimen. A pair of x10 wide field eyepieces. The raised base has the option of a black/white reversible dissection plate or frosted glass plate when using the bottom lighting. Stage clips, on/off rocker and lighting control switches. Also included two rubber eyecups and a dust cover Can be used with the Apex Minigrab digital camera. No need for the use of prepared slides therefore the Apex slide sets and slide making kits are not suitable for use with this product. An aluminium attache case available as an accessory.
The Apex Snapper allows an SLR camera to be attached to a microscope. 35mm SLR cameras, either digital or film are easy to fit on to a microscope because the lens of the camera can be removed. The camera back can then be attached to one of the microscope eyetubes with an adapter. The Snapper is a clever little tube that has at one end a fitment to attach to your camera back (Nikon, Olympus, Canon etc.), and at the other end it clamps around the eyetube of one of our Apex microscopes. The microscope has then become the lens system of the camera back. It is that straight forward. You then look through the viewfinder, focus the microscope, and take the picture.
