1.Q: Is this the only microscope you carry?
A. No. We carry a wide range of microscopes offering various specifications and for a wide range of applications including Vet Microscopes, Education Microscopes, Forensic Microscopes, Compound Microscopes and much more. Contact us at +44 (0) 161 871 7450 if you need assistance.
2.Q: Do supply Universities and offer a University discount?
A: We've worked with many Universities and are happy to discuss discounts for larger sized orders.
3. Q: What is the difference between a compond microscope and a stereo zoom microscope?
A:xA compound microscope provides a single optical path divided at the observation tube to give the same image to both the left and right eye. A compound microscope is used to look at specimens under very high magnification (40x – 1000x or greater). Typical specimens would be bacteria, animal or plant cells, blood counts and chromosomes.
A stereo microscope, which is also referred to as a zoom stereo or dissecting microscope, has two different optical paths or axes, which are offset from one another. The two independent optical systems allows for the depth perception and three-dimensional view that is created by a stereo microscope. Stereo microscopes are offered at fixed magnifications (i.e. 1x and 3x or 2x and 4x) or they can be in a continuous zoom (zoom stereo) and offer a range of magnifications (0.7x thru 4.5x). Stereo microscopes are often used to inspect electronic components, minerals, jewelry, coins, textiles, insects and animal dissections.
