Stereo microscopes provide lower magnification than compound microscopes. Stereo microscope magnification typically ranges from 5x-80x and the images seen are three-dimensional images rather than a flat images. A stereo microscope may also be referred to as a dissecting microscope.
When using stereo microscopes in industrial setting for inspection and quality control, the zoom feature on the stereo microscope is incredibly useful, as it allows quick change in magnification and the ability to zoom in or out to see greater details on the sample.
Microscope World offers a large variety of stereo microscopes from boom stand stereo microscopes to digital stereo microscopes. Articulated arm stereo microscopes are used to inspect larger objects, while stereo microscopes with external lights are used for inspecting small manufactured parts and quality control.
Stereo microscopes can have both reflected and transmitted light, depending on the microscope stand used. Most common stereo microscopes
are used to look at opaque objects that do not typically allow light to
pass through them. Stereoscopes are used in industry, research,
laboratories and universities. Since different applications require
different stereo microscope setups, the stereo microscope can be
formatted into a number of different customizable configurations.
Interchanging eyepieces and objective lenses can alter magnification and
