Stereo Microscopes for Sale

Stereo Microscope, stereo microscopesStereo 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.

What is a Stereo Microscope?

A stereo microscope, also known as a dissecting microscope, is a type of optical microscope that is designed for use in observing objects at low magnifications. Unlike a compound microscope, which uses a single objective lens to magnify the specimen, a stereo microscope has two separate optical paths, one for each eye, that provide a three-dimensional image of the specimen.

The stereo microscope is widely used in a variety of fields, including biology, geology, electronics, and manufacturing. It is particularly useful in applications that require the examination of larger specimens or the manipulation of small objects, as its low magnification allows for a wider field of view and greater depth of field.

Stereo microscopes come in a range of sizes and magnification levels, from small, portable models that can be used in the field, to larger, more powerful models that are used in laboratories and research facilities. They typically feature a pair of eyepieces that are angled at 45 degrees, which allows the user to view the specimen without having to look straight down, and a zoom lens that provides variable magnification.

In addition to its use in scientific research, the stereo microscope is also commonly used in education, as it provides students with a hands-on way to learn about the structure and function of biological specimens. It is also used in a variety of industrial applications, such as inspection and quality control, where it can be used to examine the surfaces of objects and detect defects and imperfections.

Overall, the stereo microscope is a versatile and essential tool for anyone involved in scientific research or industrial applications that require the observation and manipulation of small objects. Its ability to provide a three-dimensional view of specimens makes it a valuable tool for a wide range of applications, and its ease of use and portability make it an ideal choice for both professionals and students alike.
