Considerations when renting a microscope
When you are renting a microscope, or several, for your lab, you have to think about the common usage needs and choose the items that fit those needs the best. You might actually find that you need to have several different types of microscopes. Consider renting all of them at the same time so your lab has everything it needs. What type of microscopes will be essential for your work? Do you need some portable microscopes? What resolution and magnification do you need? Also, you should think about accessories you might want to have with the microscope. These could include things such as cameras and analysis software. If you have questions about specific microscope manufacturers, a KWIPPED supplier will happily assist you.

Features of microscopes

Optical microscopes make use of light for illumination and lenses for magnification. Many of the newer models utilize digital cameras as a means to magnify the images, and they are still capable of creating high quality images. Some of the other types of microscopes include compound, confocal, and fluorescence microscopes. An electron microscope uses a beam of electrons to light up samples. Microscopes all have controls that can help to get images into focus and that can change the magnification higher or lower.

How microscopes work

microscope rentalEssentially, all microscopes will work the same way. You will place a sample or a slide beneath the lenses and then examine that slide. The lenses offer magnification so you can get a close look at the samples. However, you will quickly discover that there are many different types of microscopes on the market, and they have different purposes even though the methodology is very similar. Naturally, this means that different types of microscopes have different features.
