Configuration
   Application:       
   Your choices are...         
   Biological / Life Science       Microscopes used for biological or life sciences inspections.  These types of microscopes might include those that transmit light or environmental scanning electron microscopes (SEM). 
   Gemological       Microscope used for gemological inspection.  These microscopes often use polarized light with lower magnifying powers to allow for brighter, sharper images combined with a wide field of view. 
   Measuring / Toolmaker       Microscopes used by toolmakers for measuring properties of tools.  These microscopes are often used for dimensional measurement with lower magnifying powers to allow for brighter, sharper images combined with a wide field of view. 
   Medical / Forensic       Microscopes used for medical or forensic inspection purposes.  These microscopes are often hands-free, binocular microscopes with lower magnifying powers to allow for brighter, sharper images combined with a wide field of view. 
   Metallurgical       Microscope used for metallurgical inspection.  Often metallurgical microscopes are inverted for viewing the bottom of a sample with lower magnifying powers to allow for brighter, sharper images combined with a wide field of view. 
   Semiconductor Inspection       Microscopes used to study the layers in a semiconductor wafer or fabricated IC component.  This inspection calls for greater precision and throughput. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary application. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Grade:       
   Your choices are...         
   Student       Student microscopes are the smallest and least expensive type of microscope. They are capable of advanced techniques and documentation even though they are for student use. They are designed for bright field, dark field, and phase contrast. 
   Benchtop       Benchtop microscopes are used in various industries such as textiles and animal husbandry.  Benchtop microscopes can perform many techniques, but can only perform a few techniques at one time. 
   Research       Research microscopes are large, weighing in the range of 30Kg to 50 Kg. This mass is composed of complex optical, mechanical, and electronic systems. They may use multiple cameras, large specimens, and the widest range of simultaneous techniques. Many will have built-in computers to control the cameras and other functions including focus or image processing. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary microscope grade. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Microscope Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Acoustic / Ultrasonic       Acoustic and ultrasonic microscopes use sound waves to create images of the sample.  These types of microscopes can be used to examine delimitations, cracks and other anomalies nondestructively. 
   Interferometric       Interferometric microscopes use the interference patterns of light waves for precise determinations of distance, thickness, surface or step heights, wavelength, roughness, and non-contact 3D surface profiles. As in conventional interferometers, measurements are made by analyzing the phase shift or interference between the two beams of white light. One beam is reflected off a reference surface and the other beam is reflected off the sample or part.  Interferometric microscopy provides higher vertical or height resolution compared to conventional optical imaging methods.  Interferometric microscopes are useful in wafer or semiconductor manufacturing, MEMs production, optical component fabrication, precision machined surfaces (ground, lapped, honed and super finished parts), plating and thin film coatings and layers, wear surfaces, surface research, biomaterials and implants, and high performance mechanical components such as bearings, cams and fuel injectors. 
   Microwave       Microwave microscopes use electromagnetic radiation, which has a long wavelength (between 1 mm and 30 cm), to study specimens. 
   Portable Field       A portable field microscope is designed for use outside of a laboratory setting.  It may have a portable energy source, such as a battery, or it may use natural light for illumination.  These microscopes are generally lightweight and handheld. 
   Laser / Confocal       A confocal microscope or laser microscope uses a laser to light image one plane of a specimen at a time. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary microscope type.

Performance Specifications
   Total Magnification:       A ratio of the size of an image to its corresponding object. This is usually determined by linear measurement.  This specification is meant to represent the entire magnification range of a microscope including both the eyepiece magnification and the objective magnification. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Resolution:       An optical device reveals the fineness of detail in an object. Objectively, resolution is specified as the minimum distance between two lines or points in the object that are perceived as separate by the human eye. Subjectively, the images of the two resolved points must fall on two receptors (rods or cones), which are separated by at least one other receptor on the retina of the eye. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.

Features and Options
   Digital Display?       A microscope that uses digital technology to display the magnified image. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Mechanical Stage?       Stages are often equipped with a mechanical device that holds the specimen slide in place and can smoothly translate the slide back and forth as well as from side to side. Other stages are designed to allow rotation of the specimen through 360 degrees or to provide anchors for auxiliary light sources, specimen manipulation tools, and other accessories. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Fine Focus?       The fine focus is used to make adjustments to the body tube, bringing the specimen into more fine focus. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Computer Interface?       The microscope can be controlled or monitored remotely with a computer via interface. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Image Analysis Processing Software?       The microscope has application software included for control or for analyzing images. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
