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.
