Jos I got Handycope Question

Postby lotsofponies » Sun Mar 24, 2013 11:01 am

I have been using a microscope a friend loaned me and would like to get it back to him. My lab space is limited and was considering a Handycope. I am also finally buying The Quick Check Sperm Counter so do I really need a full size microscope or is the Handycope going to be enough to check progressive motility? If so which "Lense Configurations" would be best suitable • AI1000 Handycope, 200x or • AI4000 Handycope, 400x?

$139 for the 200x
$159 for the 400x

The Handyscope is basic. It is portable which is convenient, but do not expect to do things like looking at sperm morphology on it... For motility only the 200x will be adequate.
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!
