Compound Microscopes An Essential and Affordable Apparatus
Compound Microscope An Essential and Affordable Apparatus Compoundmicroscopes arealso known asBiological orHigh Powermicroscopes.They are usedfor viewingtransparentspecimens thatare not typicallyvisible to thenaked eye.
Types Of Compound Microscope Standard Compound Light Microscope Inverted Compound Microscope Stereo Microscope Monocular Microscope Digital Microscope UV Compound Microscope The Fluorescence Microscope
Standard Compound Light MicroscopeAn image of thespecimen is enlargedby usually 10X witheyepiece lens andthen it is furtherenlarged withobjective lens fittedto revolving nosepiece by 4X, 10X,40X or 100X.
Inverted Compound Microscope Prevents the specimen frombeing touched by high-poweredlenses and enables the examinationof thicker andlarger specimens
Stereo MicroscopeEnlarge theimage of thespecimen to about270X and creates3-Dimensionalimage of thespecimen unlikethe standardcompound microscope which produces2-Dimensionalimage with thesingle lens.
Monocular Microscope In order to get aclear image of thespecimen on thestage, a personneeds to closeone eye whichcan be a bituncomfortable.
Digital MicroscopeLight source isabove thespecimen on thestage and imageobtained is 3-Dimensional.Image is digitizedand can be seenon a monitor orscreen.
