A compound microscope uses more than one lens.

Characteristics of a Compound Microscope

  • Typical magnification range between 40x and 1000x.

  • Available in monocular, binocular and trinocular head configurations.

  • Light source as halogen bulb & LED types

Types of Compound Microscopes and their usage :-

Brightfield Microscope - The compound microscope is also known as the bright-field microscope when the light passes directly from the light source to the eye through the objective lenses. This mechanism makes the field of vision brightly illuminated. Magnus manufactures wide range of bright field microscopes, click the link for more detail

Fluorescence microscope - A fluorescence microscope is a conventional compound microscope equipped with a high-intensity light source that emits light in a controlled spectrum. Most utilize incident illumination to illuminate the sample - in this way the objective lens is used as both the illumination condenser and the fluorescent light collector. The arrangement of optical components that permits illumination from above the specimen is termed epi-fluorescence illumination.

Phase-Contrast Microscope - A phase-contrast microscope uses a special lens, called a "phase contrast objective lens," together with a phase slider (or phase condenser). This combination intensifies the contrast of the object being observed, without the need of staining it with dye. The phase contrast microscopes are often used in medical research to observe living specimens. Magnus manufactures a wide range of fluorescence microscopes, click the link for more detail
