Compound microscopes are also known as Biological or High Power microscopes. They are used for viewing transparent specimens that are not typically visible to the naked eye. We carry compound microscopes for most applications although for brevity, we have divided them into three broad sub-categories:
Stereo microscopes are also known as Dissecting or Low Power Microscopes. They are used for viewing 'macro' specimens that are opaque - light is unable to pass through. We offer three types of stereo magnification including:Dual Power (2 fixed objective lenses), Zoom Stereo microscopes with standard magnification of up to 45x and High-Resolution Stereo with common main objectives (CMO), and magnification up to 300x.
For your convenience, we have divided this large selection of microscopes into four broad applications:
