Apex Handheld

Apex Handheld

Price: 98.00 / 112.70 (Including VAT at 20%)


The Apex Zoomview is a handheld microscope that can magnify up to x200 and display an image on any television through the AV port. Simply tune the television to the correct AV channel and the image appears automatically. The Zoomview is cordless and will work up to 30 feet away from its docking centre allowing the unit to obtain images from all sorts of difficult to reach places. The docking station simply attaches to the television via its AV lead and the Zoomview communicates with the docking station by wireless. The built in LED lights have a brightness control and produce really clear coloured images. There is a choice of four communication channels between the Zoomview and the docking station. The unit is powered by internal rechargeable batteries that will last for several hours between each charge. As well as being a handheld microscope, the Zoomview will also focus into the distance like a normal CCTV camera. In the box is the Handheld Zoomview Microscope, the docking station, transformer plug with recharging lead and the leads to connect the docking station to the television. For TV and projectors, but would need a TV video encoder to work with a computer.

Main features:

- A handheld microscope producing magnified images on a TV or projector
- Magnifies between x5 and x200 with built in LED lighting giving bright colour images
- Superb education and teaching tool
- Cordless and will work up to 30 ft away from the docking station/TV
- Stands are available as an accessory

Apex Dino-Lite AM4113T

Apex Dino-Lite AM4113T

Price: 288.00 / 331.20 (Including VAT at 20%)

The AM413T was designed for professional users who demand sharp picture quality as well as access to comprehensive measurement functions There are other 'lookalike' products available at much cheaper prices that are great fun. However the Dino-Lite range stands apart from these with its build quality, performance,software, 2 year warranty and product support. Excellence does not come cheaply. The Dino-Lite is a new concept in magnification bringing together some of the benefits of a microscope with a digital camera that can take video clips and still images. The main advantage of the Dino-Lite is its portability and the fact that it can be used in places and for applications that are outside the reach of conventional microscopes. This is a professional product and the DinoCapture software mesurement features are enabled. Once an image has been captured the user enters the magnification value, as read from the microscope dial, after which measurements such as length, angle and circle circumference can be taken and added to the image as text and graphics. The 'Microtouch' function allows snapshot to be taken by lightly touching the the sensor area. The images are of a fly, rock fossil, a piece of engineered metal and the print of a stamp.

Apex Dino-Lite AM2111

Apex Dino-Lite AM2111

Price: 105.00 / 120.75 (Including VAT at 20%)

The AM2111 is the entry level version from the Dino-Lite range of professional quality handheld USB digital microscopes. There are other 'lookalike' products available at much cheaper prices that are great fun. However the Dino-Lite range stands apart from these with its build quality, performance, software, 2 year warranty and product support. Excellence does not come cheaply. The Dino-Lite is a new concept in magnification bringing together some of the benefits of a microscope with a digital camera that can take video clips and still images. The main advantage of the Dino-Lite is its portability and the fact that it can be used in places and for applications that are outside the reach of conventional microscopes. For those just interested in the world around them they can provide a fascinating insight and are excellent as a family teaching tool that can make science fun. In the commercial world and industry they can be invaluable for presentations and examining items in situations that preclude the use of a standard microscope. Whilst they are designed to be hand held they do benefit from the use of a stand which makes steady focusing easier. Stands are available separately and are listed in our range of products and one is shown here with the microscope in place. We like to describe all our products accurately and whilst the Dino-Lite has many unique applications in truth it cannot replace or replicate all that microscopes are used for, the AM2111 would not really be suitable for insect dissections or looking at microscope slides for example. Nevertheless a valuable addition to the microscopy and inspection world. The images show a house fly, the surface of a rock mineral and the print of a postage stamp at the highest magnification.
