Posted on by Michelle R. in All-Spec News, Magnifiers and Microscopes, Product Spotlight Leave a comment

With an extensive selection from Bausch + Lomb Optical, our Coddington and Hastings Triplet magnifiers both deliver the superior quality you’d expect from this industry-leading giant. But what’s the difference between these two handheld magnifier styles, and which is right for your application?

Hastings Triplet Magnifiers incorporate three separate lenses, which are fused together to create a compound lens for sharp, very distinct imaging without distortion. Available in magnifications of 7x-20x, the Hastings Triplet is an essential for precision manufacturing applications.

Coddington Magnifiers are available in 10x-20x and deliver a value option for more casual applications. Available in both standard and illuminated styles, the Coddington offers crisp images through a single thick lens with a central groove diaphragm.
