The stereo microscope is an optical microscope variant designed for low magnification observation of a sample, typically using light reflected from the surface of an object rather than transmitted through it. The instrument uses two separate optical paths with two objectives and eyepieces to provide slightly different viewing angles to the left and right eyes.
This arrangement produces a three-dimensional visualization of the sample being examined. Stereomicroscopy overlaps macrophotography for recording and examining solid samples with complex surface topography, where a three-dimensional view is needed for analyzing the detail.
Because it gives the three-dimensional view it is also called as the dissecting microscope
stereo microscope applications
include dissection, forensic observation, characterization of material surfaces, and more.
stereo zoom microscope Features
1. The left and right beams in the binocular tube are not parallel,the imaging has a three-dimensional stereoscopic impression;
2. The image is upright, easy to operate and dissect, because the prism under the eyepiece turns the image upside down;
3. its working distance can changed by barlow len of stereo micrsoscope;
