We previously offered a range of microscopes from a German inventor. We are now no longer offering these microscopes as the inventor, who is now 80 years old, has told us he can no longer supply them to us.
He specifically requested us to remove his name and existing products from our website, which we have done to respect his privacy. We wish to thank him for all he has done in the past including his development work on the series of microscopes we have been offering in the past.
Effective August 2014, Grayfield Optical is now working with the inventor’s engineering team, who have been working with the same microscope technology for decades, are considerably younger and fully up-to-date with the latest microscope technologies including the latest digital measurment systems. Our nano-positioning system was developed by this team, for example.
We are now preparing to release an entirely new series of microscopes, under the SeeNano name, which enables us to provide you with microscopes that have all the capabilities of the previous series, while adding fluorescence capabilities and realistic pricing. Development work is progressing well and we have started to get into the costing phase so that we are able to price these new microscopes.

Fischer Technology, a member of the HELMUT FISCHER GROUP, began manufacturing Fischer products in Windsor, CT in 1979 and has a strong commitment to continuously improve the quality of our products and services. Fischer is registered to ISO 9001:2008 and is responsible for sales, production, technical support and service for the United States, Canada and Mexico with multiple service centers around the country. This type of service is unmatched in the industry for coating thickness, material testing, material analysis and micro-hardness measurement applications.
The Fischer product line comprises of a broad spectrum of measuring and analysis instruments for the most diverse applications and industries. The appropriate measurement methods are used for correct results yielding optimum precision. Whether magnetic induction or eddy current, beta-backscatter, coulometric, micro hardness or x-ray fluorescence Fischer has the suitable technology.
Coating Thickness Measurements:
Whether painted or electroplated, applied to magnetic or non-magnetic materials you will find the appropriate instrument for precise coating thickness measurements in our large product portfolio.
Electromagnetic methods: Pocket gauges, Handheld gauges, Benchtop units, Probes
X-ray fluorescence method
X-ray fluorescence instruments for material analysis:
For exact material analysis, the broad assortment of Fischer X-ray fluorescence instruments (XRF) offers the optimal instrument for any application. Trace analysis required by RoHS, testing of jewelry and gold or inline measurements in continuous production FISCHERSCOPE X-RAY instruments fulfil the requirements in the laboratory and in manufacturing.
Microhardness measuring instruments :
Industry demands that surfaces and coatings are engineered to be very hard, extremely thin or visco-elastic thus requiring powerful measurement methods and systems.
Fischer provides quick, precise and effective measurements of mechanical properties (hardness, modulus, creep, etc.) of micro and nano scale coatings, components, cross-sections, treated and modified surfaces.
The measurement technology of Fischer is sought after and proven when the quality of weld seams is measured in steel constructions or the sealing is determined on anodized facades. This is also true when the coatings are tested on tanks or airplane aluminum structures for fatigue.
