A microscope is an instrument capable of producing a magnified image of a small object.
Biological Microscopes (151 suppliers)
Digital and Video Microscopes (237 suppliers)
Digital and video microscopes are instruments that use digital technology to magnify images of objects. They include built-in cameras and a series of high-powered lenses that provide superior image quality and resolution.

Electron Microscopes (60 suppliers)
Electron microscopes use a focused beam of electrons instead of light to "image" the specimen and gain information as to its structure and composition.

Ion Milling Systems (20 suppliers)
Ion milling systems use an ion beam to thin samples for transmission electron microscopy. Focused ion beam (FIB) systems use a narrow high current beam to mill specific regions or a low current beams to image samples (FIM).

Measuring Microscopes (110 suppliers)
Measuring microscopes are used by toolmakers for measuring the 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.

Microscope Stages (77 suppliers)
Microscope stages are platforms where specimens are placed for observation with a microscope. They are often equipped with a mechanical device which holds the specimen slide in place, but allows the back-and-forth and side-to-side movement of the slide.

Mounting Compounds (34 suppliers)
Mounting compounds are used to encapsulate specimens of a metal, ceramic, minerals, biomaterials or other material to allow grinding, polishing and other sample preparation for analysis using microscopes, hardness testers or spectrometers. Mounting compounds are in the form of compression mounting resins (powders, pellets or preforms) or liquid resins.

Mounting Presses and Equipment (32 suppliers)
Mounting presses and equipment are used to encapsulate specimens of a metal, ceramic or other material with a mounting compound to allow grinding, polishing and other sample preparation for analysis using microscopes, hardness testers or spectrometers. Mounting pressing, vacuum impregnation and cold casting are techniques used in mounting metallographic or material samples.
