Microscope Systems are essential to many Advanced Diagnostic systems and applications. Each application may require a different type of microscope – most common include Stereo and Inverted Microscopes. Stereo Microscopes are optical microscopes that use incident light illumination for inspection. Stereo Microscopes offer a broad range of magnification options, along with features such as zoom capability or interchangeable objectives in higher-end models. Inverted Microscopes simply flip the objective and sensor position below the sample, and are important for cellular analysis, well plate inspection, or petri dish inspection where critical features and cells reside on the bottom of a well. Inverted Microscopes are beneficial for specimens that are best imaged from underneath in order to reduce the amount of spherical and chromatic aberrations typically induced by immersion medium. Microscope Systems are ideal for analysis of small features and defects that cannot be resolved simply or easily by the human eye.
Edmund Optics offers Stereo Microscopes and Inverted Microscopes by industry leading manufacturers, including Mitutoyo and Olympus. The Mitutoyo FS70 Inspection Microscope is compatible with the Mitutoyo Infinity Corrected Objectives. The Olympus Stereo Microscopes offer various mounting configurations for a variety of application and system spaces. Edmund Optics also offers a variety of Stereo Microscope accessories, including cameras or vibration isolation tables which minimize vibrations from interfering with image quality.
