Dissecting Microscopes

The dissecting microscopes below can all be used for science dissection projects. Each dissection microscope (except for model 185) 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 while dissecting your specimen. This is quite helpful in the classroom setting, where more than one student can gather around the computer monitor.
