The Mag-Tek XSB2010 – The Veterinarians’ Best Microscope
For quality and versatility, the Mag-Tek XSB2010 binocular microscope should be the first choice of veterinarians and serious dog breeders. This microscope is perfect for cytological examinations to help time matings or AI, as well as counting spermatozoa and assessing their motility.
Binocular viewing makes analysis of semen or vaginal swabs a comfortable experience. The eyepieces can be adjusted for almost anyone’s face, with a full 20 mm of variation in eye spacing. The scope comes with four lenses offering magnification powers of 4X, 10X, 40X, and 100X. The eyepiece also adds a 10-fold magnification, resulting in a maximum possible amplification of 1000x. Consequently, a very wide range of cell sizes and morphologies can be seen with clarity. Focusing is easy, using both coarse- and fine-tuning knobs. The sample slide is held firmly in place on the stage and is illuminated from below with a powerful 20-watt halogen light source.
Importantly, the Mag-Tek is made in Germany, and comes with a responsive support team and a UK-based warranty that you can count on. This microscope is affordable, yet constructed to last: you will not be frustrated with a cheap product that fails when you need it the most. Many experienced canine breeders and veterinarians have used this scope with a great deal of satisfaction, and that’s why we can recommend it highly to you here.
