Veterinary LED Laboratory Microscope with Infinity Plan Optical System

The Vetlab Premiere 1600 veterinary microscope available with a Binocular or Trinocular head, has a revolutionary Infinity Plan Optical System and modern ergonomic design has a real ‘feel good factor’ when you use it. Ideal for the busy diagnostic laboratory and for tasks such as performing differential WBC counts on stained blood smears where image detail is of importance.

Of particular note is its modern Siedentopf binocular Infinity adjusted head with a diopter focus ring on each eye tube angled at 30 degrees allows you not only to easily adjust for width of your eyes but also the focus length of each eye, a real bonus if there are different users and helps to give you greater comfortable viewing.

Moving further downwards, there are four Infinity Plan objectives forward facing away from the operator. Not only do these special objectives give superb clearly defined flat images but their forward positioning helps with accurate objective selection and positioning over the slide before focusing as well as easier slide placement and removal.

The Vetlab Premiere 1600 also has a battery compartment and can be used if there is a power cut or in remote locations where no electricity is available. Also, there is an optional upgrade available of a pair of Plan 10X /20mm wide field eyepieces with rubber eye-guards.

The Vetlab Premiere 1600 microscope offers great value for money considering its robust build, modern ergonomic features, high specifications and the 2 Year warranty endorsing our confidence in its reliability.

Introducing Infinity Optics – Powerful LED Illumination – raises microscopy imaging quality to another level

This laboratory microscope represents a major advance in image quality and we are proud to introduce it into our range of Infinity Optical System microscopes. The Premiere 1600 LED veterinary microscope matches Infinity Plan Optics with Infinity Plan Objectives, which raises image quality to another level.

The images are exceptionally sharp and clear and are seen on a flat field of view against a bright, white background. This is due to the quality of the LED light source which is so important when optimising the image. The use of an LED light source also means that there are extremely low levels of heat emission and the light source will last for up to 50,000 hours.

Advanced Ergonomic Design 

With its stylish, cutting-edge design, this professional LED microscope will not fail to impress, with the superb quality of its images, as well as its ease of use. In addition to its powerful LED light source, there are four PLAN INFINITY objectives: 4X, 10X, 40X (S), 100X (S)(O).


Battery compartment for 3 x AA batteries for cordless/field use.
