I'm starting up a lab and want some opinions on:
1)a stereomicroscope w/transmitted light in the BASE (I was thinking
the Nikon SMZ-645 stereo microscope)
2)a fluorescence stereomicroscope (GFP for now, RFP filter perhaps later)
3)a fluorescence upright (hi-magification) microscope (GFP for now,
RFP filter perhaps later)
Price is DEFINITELY a consideration, but I want at least moderately
good optics and something that will last.
I was hoping for under $3K for #1, under $25K for #2 and under 30K,
under $35K for #3.
Thanks in advance,
