Dissecting Microscopes

The dissecting microscopes below can all be used for science dissection projects, viewing printed circuit boards, or quality inspection tasks. Each dissection microscope (not including the handheld microscope) has both a top light and a bottom light, each of which can be used independently of the other. Most often, the top light is used while dissecting. The digital dissection microscope allows you to view a live image on your computer screen or on the included tablet while dissecting your specimen. This is quite helpful in the classroom setting, where more than one student can gather around the computer monitor or the tablet LCD microscope. Additionally, in a quality control setting a digital tablet microscope can reduce a lot of time spent looking through the eyepieces that sometimes results in eye strain.
