The Department of Chemical and Process Engineering at the University of Strathclyde recently purchased a Yenway CX40M reflected light metallurgical microscope fitted with one of the ever popular YenCam 5 USB cameras.
 
Dr Todd Green, group leader, commented:
‘We are very satisfied with the performance of the Yenway CX40M  microscope and camera. The optical and build quality is excellent and comparable to microscopes costing far more. Our main application is  to characterise the finish of electroplated and etched metal surfaces and also inspect components for corrosion damage’.

Scottish Water based at Heriot Watt Research Park in Edinburgh have invested in another Olympus BX53 fluorescence microscope for the the busy Cryptosporidium Laboratory.

The microscope is equipped with a state of the art CoolLED pE-300-WHITE illumination system, DIC and top of the range Spectral Apochromat objectives. The purchase will help ease the work load on the existing four Olympus microscopes.

The Haematology laboratory at St John's Hospital Howden recently took delivery of a YenCam HD II camera and monitor for use in group discussions and training.

The YenCam HD II is particularly well suited for use in group discussion and training sessions because of the extremely easy camera setup. Just focus the image on screen and the camera does the rest automatically. What you see down the microscope is exactly what you see on screen with near perfect colour rendition. The 60 frames per second refresh rate means there is no drag whatsoever when focusing or moving around the slide.

The Pharmacy and Life Science  department at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen recently purchased 12 Yenway EX20 student microscopes. Having had side by side demonstrations next to the Olympus CX22LED and Leica DM1000 equivalents the technical staff preferred both the optical and build quality of the Yenway scopes. Also purchased were two Yenway SZN stereos equipped with YenCam HD II high definition camera systems.

Speaking about the cameras Iain Tough, applications supervisor, commented "I’m very impressed with the versatility of the cameras in that they can be used with or without a PC which is great when you are short of bench space".

The Wolfson Centre for Materials Processing based at Brunel University in London recently purchased a Yenway RX50M microscope equipped with optics for reflected light brightfield / darkfield, polarised light and DIC microscopy. For image capture a YenCam 10 CMOS camera was also part of the system.
Commenting on the system Dr Paul Harris said "We are very pleased with the RX50M, the quality of the optics and general build quality is excellent.  We intend to use it on a wide range of Materials Science projects, particularly in the area of display technologies such as LED, OLED and ACEL displays and phosphor materials".
