Microscope Question

Postby AKez » Tue Oct 09, 2012 4:06 pm

Quick Question - Looking to purchase microscope for semen analysis, I've read over the board past/present to find out what I need. I still know nothing about microscopes, and I find it all vaguely confusing :D

I've found used versions of the following, for around the same price, if someone can please let me know if either or both of these would work and which would be the best. Someone is looking at one of them, so it might be gone anyhow but for now I'm going with it is still available.

#1 http://www.green-witch.com/acatalog/BM- ... scope.html
(pretty new, only used a few times, in a home setting)

#2 http://www.parklandscientific.com/lab_micro.aspx
(older, more use, but looks to be in good shape and said to be in full working order, lenses possibly need cleaning?)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Either will work, but the second one is a better quality one. Plus from the phone number, it looks as though the "green witch" website is in the UK, so shipping will be a significant additional cost.
We're always happy to try and help, but don't forget to check the articles section
of the website too, which has a search engine to help you look for answers!
