My Lomo Microscope

Postby Rocketcaver on Thu Sep 13, 2007 11:58 am

I have been using my Lomo scope for a few years now to study red and white blood cells (stained smears on slides).
I was becoming increasingly concerned about a lack of contrast in the image.
Then one day I noticed that my stain was WAY past the expiration date.
New stain and the images are sharp and clear again.
Amazing what you can overlook sometimes!
Thanks again LOMO for a great microscope and great tech support.
I have started a Yahoo Group at:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LomoMicroscopeUsers/

for Lomo scope users to trade info and tips.
We don't have much going on there yet, but I plan to put up a few links and files in the coming days.
Hope to see y'all there!

I was given a Lomo P-111 last year as a gift. Is the UP-OI32 available as a separate purchase? And do you have any?
