December 13 2010 (Monday) - A Letter

I read an interesting article in "Pathology in Practice" today. So interesting in fact that I wrote to the magazine’s editor.


I must admit to a wry smile over the article in "Pathology in Practice" Volume 11 Issue 4 entitled "Microscopes and imaging: a brief independent guide". Specifically the paragraph on page 127: "A good  quality digital micrscope camera with imaging software can be attached to any microscope for as little as £1500".

I have recently obtained a Bresser USB Electronic Microscope Eyepiece from Scopes 'n' Skies for my department:

This gadget has produced excellent quality photographs which students and senior staff alike have used, and far from costing over a thousand pounds, only costs £34.99. It comes with software, but can produce photographs with software as simple as MicroSoft Paint.

Yours faithfully

(I feel I should mention that I have no commercial connection with the companies in question here, I merely wish to share what I consider to be a serious economy that can be made)

I wonder if I will get a response…?
