Millennium Health Microscope

A new low cost, compact microscope is being developed, which will revolutionise the diagnosis of infectious diseases, such as Malaria, in developing countries.
The MHM will be rugged enough for field use, so that examination of blood and other samples can be carried out in remote rural areas, eliminating the delay caused by sending samples to a laboratory. It is a high specification instrument, with interchangeable objectives up to 100:1, standard RMS eyepieces, integral lighting and an indexing stage. Despite this, the target price in quantity production is £40.
