No biology classroom is complete without biological microscopes. These microscopes are used by general biology students as well as university and college studies, but they’re also used by doctors, pathologists, veterinarians, professional laboratory technicians, and hobbyists.

A subcategory of compound microscopes, biological microscopes are commonly used to view samples of blood, plant cells, human/animal cells/tissue, and even mushroom spores. These microscopes, also known as brightfield upright compound microscopes, employ a single eyepiece and multiple objectives on a rotating ring, allowing easy switching from one objective to another to increase magnification power.

Our biological microscopes come with a variety of options for viewing heads, objectives types, and illuminations. Viewing heads available include monocular, binocular, ergonomic binocular, trinocular, and ergonomic trinocular. Some of the types of objectives we have available include plan, infinity plan, semi-plan, achromat, and more. For illumination, you can choose between LED and halogen bulbs.

The biological microscopes we have from brands like ACCU-SCOPE, LABOMED, Meiji Techno, and OPTIKA include features like:

  • Crisp, high-quality images with outstanding resolution, precision design, and enhanced LED illumination.
  • Improved optics, ergonomic designs, and competitive pricing.
  • High-performance features and stable rectangular bases for security.
  • Slim and easy to carry, yet sturdy and resistant.
  • Long-lasting LED illumination to provide over 20 years of use.
