Microscope Buyer's Checklist


Use this checklist as a reference guide when researching the purchase of a compound upright laboratory microscope. Laboratory level microscopes can be custom configured to your needs. The following tool can be used to make sure to make sure you consider all your major component options for your new microscope.


You should always choose 10x eyepieces unless your specific end use/analysis requires otherwise. 10x is the industry standard. As the magnifaction of the eyepiece goes up, the field of view (amount you see through the eyepiece) goes down.
