Wanted: Olympus BH2-BHS (or similar BH2, etc.)

Have a problem finding shops that sell specific materials? Ask here. Are you looking for microscope parts? Do you have anything to offer for sale? Note: this is not a section for external companies to advertise their products.

Wanted: Olympus BH2-BHS (or similar BH2, etc.)

#1 Post by AALT » Mon Jan 17, 2022 5:01 am

Hello! I'm looking to purchase my first personal microscope for home projects—I work as a research associate in a biomedical research lab, but have interests in microbial ecology, some physical/atmospheric science/geological interests, etc. (and a formal background in the arts); looking to explore some of these interests a bit more via microscopy. I've read a fair bit about Olympus BH2's—their quality, modularity, relative abundance, resources/community available for users, etc., and am reaching out as a feeler to see if anyone was looking to sell a BH2, ideally in the BHS configuration. Interested in the BHS base configuration given its compatibility with extensions, etc., and wanted to reach out to the community to see if anyone was looking to sell a Olympus BH2-BHS and/or any similar configurations (interested in having a 100X objective, and possibly a trinocular config. for photography, etc.). Also interested in any other suggestions people may have, information they would have liked to have prior to purchasing their first microscope, any helpful information re: Olympus BH2's, etc.!

Hi aalt,

I’ve got a nice phase bhs with trinoc setup as well as a bhtu. Haven’t looked at them in a while but was thinking of letting them both go. I’m in Canada so shipping might be an issue. Let me know if you’re interested.

Stew, I am interested to know if you have spare BHS phase components or are willing to sell individual pieces, specifically objectives?

Hello AALT
Where are you located?
I have a BHS with S-plan objectives plus phase kit but I'd prefer not to post.
