The Vetlab SP22 LED Microscope

Monocular Microscope with Digital Option

The Vetlab SP22 LED Monocular Microscope is the ideal starter microscope and has many features normally found on more expensive models hence, representing fantastic value for money.

It has four turret-mounted, RMS standard Achromatic objectives, sub-stage condenser with Iris diaphragm and fully mechanical stage with drop down coaxial controls. In addition, coaxial coarse and fine focus controls with focus stop together with built-in LED illumination make it suitable for the hobby user or amateur naturalist.

Worm Egg Counting – Using A McMaster Counting Chamber

The Vetlab SP22 will not accommodate a  McMaster counting chamber. For worm egg counting please see the Wedmore SP14 or our Premiere range of microscopes.

SP22D – With Built-in Digital Camera 

This microscope has the same optical performance and mechanical build as the SP22 but incorporated in the head is a 1.3M pixel (1280 x 1024) CMOS chip digital camera. It shares the image with the eyepiece and is attached to a laptop or PC via a USB lead (included). Above all, when the slide is in focus with the standard eyepiece, it will also be in focus on the computer screen. Finally, the supplied Scopeimage software is suitable for Windows 7, 8 and 10 but not for Apple OS.

The software has a large number of applications: 

  • Video Clips & Still Images
  • Time Lapse Video Clips
  • Full Image Colour & Exposure Control
  • Automatic White Balance
  • Saved Image Orientation
  • Distance, Area & Angle Measurement On Still Images
  • Annotation On Still Images
  • Manual & Auto Exposure Options

In addition, step by step instructions are provided to guide you through the process.
