'The year is slipping away & so can the cash sometimes. Can’t purchase right now? Think about a repair or a refurb. The nice thing about our industry is that the calendar isn’t over populated with events you must not miss – The EFCLIN Congress however IS an event you must not miss – book now!

Reproducibility issues with your soft lens measurements? It's quite likely to be connected with temperature so you need to take a look at our TC20i Temperature & Filtration Controller. Once you've tried it you'll wonder how you ever did without it.
We don't just repair & service our own instruments...using a Documator? Give us a call. The Eurozone value story really is the best time to buy!

Catch you next time'

Refurb or Repair & Make Your Cash Go Further

With ever increasing pressure on cash within businesses it’s perhaps no surprise that we are seeing a sharp increase in the numbers of customers asking us to repair or refurbish their old instruments. The good news is that because we take the greatest care to use only the finest materials when our instruments are first manufactured, repairs are seldom a problem. Every now and then we come across an instrument that really is “past its sell by date”, so to speak, but that’s pretty rare. If you’d like to know if your old instrument can have new life breathed into it then just e-mail us on or call +(44)(0)1684 892859. It would be helpful if you could give us the instrument serial number (rear panel) and even better if you can send some close up pictures of the wet cell area on the front. We look forward to hearing from you.

In Control – TC20i

You don’t have to work with hydrophilic plastics for long before realising that temperature has a fairly significant effect on the behaviour of the material….any material!
Try to carry out any precise dimensional measurements and you’re into a whole new area of complexity. In short, it’s really tough to control. That’s where the Optimec TC20i Temperature & Filtration Controller comes in – to give you back the control.
A completely re designed, fully digitally controlled instrument the TC20i allows you to maintain the saline in the wet cell of your measuring instrument anywhere between 15 - 40 °C  +/- 0.5 °C.
That means you can choose the temperature at which you measure and also dramatically improve the reproducibility of measurements. Add to that the fact that it will also keep your saline nice and free from dust and fibres and you have quite an instrument. Just e-mail us on or call +(44)(0)1684 892859 to find out more.

“It’s Measurement Jim, But Not As We Know It”

Excuse the little anecdote for all the Star Trek fans but maybe you still have one of the original Zeiss DL2 Documators in you lab? Or perhaps you have one of the slightly younger copies that were made some years ago? If so, and you’re wondering how to get spare parts or repairs then wonder no more! Optimec are imaging instrument specialists and we repair all kinds of instruments. Just let us know what you have and we’ll do our best to help. Just e-mail us on or call +(44)(0)1684 892859 and we’ll see what we can do.

Euros – Still A Bargain…If You’re In The Right Place!

I know I seem pre-occupied with this at the moment but it really is something you ought to take advantage of…if you live & work in the Eurozone that is.

Recent exchange rate movements of the Euro vs. Sterling mean that products manufactured within the UK are significantly cheaper than they have been for a very long time. That good value includes all products from Optimec.

Whatever you’re looking for JCF, JCF/F, Chiltern, JCM, SAGTC20i or Decon4 you really won’t get better value than right now. To find out just how good e-mail us on or call +(44)(0)1684 892859. You’ll be pleased you did.
