Which Microscope Are You Looking For?

Tuesday, 6 May 2014  |  Amy

There are different ways of categorising microscopes. They can be categorised by their purpose, by their construction, and by how one observes the specimens. Different viewing options offer different uses, a microscope can be Monocular (1 eyepiece), Binocular (2 eyepieces), or Trinocular (3 eyepieces).

While a monocular microscope is made for one eye, binocular and stereo microscopes are made for both eyes. Trinocular microscopes are Binocular or Stereo Microscopes with a third eyepiece, which may either be for a second person to share the view or in order to affix a digital camera or video camera to the third eyepiece in order to create a lasting record of what was seen.

Here are examples of the 3 different types of microscopes:

Monocular Microscopes

A monocular microscope can have single or compound lenses. Simple microscopes, those with a single lens are only available as monocular microscopes.

Binocular Microscopes
