Understanding the Research Microscope

Once you talk about microscopes, you imagine a piece of metal with a viewing port, some mechanisms for lighting, several lenses and a specimen.

Well, while this perception may affect all kinds of microscopes, this is pretty generic and a specialist in microscopy would say that you've probably never grown out of those student's microscopes.

Today, however, you will find so many types of microscopes in the market. If you think that cell phones have been growing like wildfire in the last decade, wait till you see how a microscope has evolved – at the very least for the past 50 years or so.

Today, you can already encounter terms including the digital microscope, the fluorescent microscope, and the atomic force microscope. Sounds fascinating?

If you're not just a man of science – and I mean a true-blue man of science – it could be particularly hard for you really to differentiate one from another. For you, whatever you need to know is that the microscope can help you see things that aren't visible to the unaided eye – that's it.

But it doesn't hurt to update your "scientific knowledge," right? Thus, this information will try to explain – using simple words – one of many terms in microscopy (the field of microscopes and of viewing small objects): the investigation microscope. You can get more information about microscopes at

What's a research microscope then? To begin with, the definition of is primarily associated with size. Size could be classified according to routine or research (for inverted microscopes) or student, bench-top, and research (for upright microscopes).
