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:
The Basic Student Microscope is equipped with three achromatic objectives as used in common practice and have a simple object stage with two clips for holding slides. The Basic Student Microscope is equipped with rechargeable batteries and can be used without a mains connection. Features of The Basic Student Microscope include:
A Binocular microscope is simply a microscope that uses two eyepieces instead of the traditional one used in many other types of microscopes. This binocular view offers a number of advantages and the costs are comparable to a single eyepiece instrument. The popularity of the binocular microscope has grown over the years and currently represents that vast majority of units sold.
The Microscope, Binocular Biological has optics of the finest quality and has precision engineered mechanisms for lifelong service. The Microscope, Binocular Biological has a full maintenance and repair service available. Features of The Microscope, Binocular Biological include:
A Trinocular microscope may have one of several purposes. One purpose is to allow a second viewer access to a specimen at the same time as the person who is mainly using the microscope. Another purpose of a trinocular microscope is to allow the use of technology to either preserve the images seen through the microscope by recording them or projecting them.
The Microscope, Trinocular has optics of the finest quality and has precision engineered mechanisms for lifelong service. The Microscope, Trinocular has robust frames made to the highest quality. Features of The Microscope, Trinocular include:
