As a high school teacher or college professor, are you tired of having your students take turns looking through the same microscope for a few minutes just so that they can see the same image? This process can be a distracting endeavor that feels like it’s taking up valuable time that could be put towards the students’ learning.

Fear not: we have teaching and multi-head microscopes that allow for up to 10 persons to observe the same image at the same time. Now you and your students can look at the specimens and discuss them in detail without worrying about running out of time. These microscopes are built for classroom discussions, making them ideal for teaching and training students, though they can also be used in medical conference settings.

For applications in Pathology, Cytology, Microbiology, Hematology, etc., digital cameras can be connected to the microscopes to capture photos and videos of your specimens or samples. Configurations available for teaching microscopes include dual head, two-head, three-head, five-head, nine-head, face-to-face, and side-by-side. Choose the appropriate number of heads for your teaching microscopes depending on how many students you need to account for and your preferred classroom setting. Multi-head microscopes can be used to teach large groups of students at a time, but they can also be used for one-on-one instruction.
