Ergonomic designs honoured in Global Health and Pharma Magazine’s Biotechnology Awards
Vision Engineering has been named Best Stereo Microscopes & Measuring Systems Manufacturer 2019 by Global Health and Pharma Magazine (GHP).
The awards are based on nominees’ contributions to their sector and winners are selected by a panel of five judges led by an academic.
Vision Engineering was selected based on its continued commitment to innovation and excellence, in particular for its development of the Mantis ergonomic stereo microscope and the TVM non-contact measurement system. The Mantis stereo microscope maximises the comfort of operators by replacing traditional eyepieces with a patented viewing system which allows users to move their heads freely, maintain a natural posture, wear prescription spectacles, and retain peripheral vision of their working area.
First launched 25 years ago, the Mantis stereo microscope has been continually developed and enhanced by Vision Engineering’s in-house research and development team, following the company’s design philosophy which is to make world-class inspection and measurement systems that are easy and comfortable to use.
The Mantis has continued to evolve in appearance, capability and applicability, maintaining its status as market leader in the medical device manufacture, dental equipment and life sciences markets. The range now includes Mantis Compact, Mantis Elite and Mantis Elite-Cam HD.
The TVM Field of View (FOV) video measurement systems save time and space in the laboratory, and are exceptionally easy to use, to eliminate user errors. TVM’s flat field telecentric lens and collimated sub-stage lighting facilitate instant, non-contact measurement of components of any shape or form, such as injection moulded plastic components, tubes and stents. TVM can be configured to suit specific biotechnological applications and components can be instantly measured within the field of view, without needing to adjust focus or change the position of the subject under inspection.
