This instrument - being the companys Precision Micro Projector - comprises a fixed lamp house fitted with an adjustable lens assembly/focusing unit, a glass chamber (originally liquid-filled and presumably designed to reduce heat transfer and potential damage to the object slide), a slide holder and substage assembly and finally a projection microscope fitted with three lens turret.
