Leja and its distributors offer a reticule with your first order of Leja slides which will help you set up your microscope to perform a manual count. Your local Leja distributor will supply you with the right size reticule (subject to availability, please contact your Leja distributor prior to planning any experiments or patient reviews). Stage micrometers for calibration can also be supplied by Leja (prices will vary per geographic region).
Always contact your local Leja representative about prices and help about selecting the correct size reticle. We cannot promise the delivery of your reticle of choice. We do have a large number of reticles in inventory, but may not have the correct one for your microscope. You can also always contact your microscope service agent for more details on the fitting of the reticle. The manual supplied will only work for Nikon and Olympus microscopes. Please contact your microscope service agent for help with the correct placement of the reticle when you do not use a Nikon or Olympus microscope.
