My first scientific love: microscopes

Exploring a world of specimens and microorganisms

My friends, students and teachers, have invested a lot of time and money in developing a close relation with microscopy. There are new scientific instruments that tried along the years to compete with microscopes but none of them managed to come close to them. Why do I love microscopes? Well, I will answer with another question: what’s not to love? Microscopes offer an unprecedented insight into the world of microscopy, a place where microorganisms thrive and discover their life patterns. Such life forms can’t be seen with naked eyes. In any home laboratory you will most likely find a professional study tool like a microscope. This is a must „tool” which renders a meaningful insight into microscopic world.

How to study specimens without looking back?

Scientists, teachers and students are interested in developing a productive research environment. Setting the right parameters for scientific work starts with a simple decision: investing in a professional microscope. With a good instrument, projects become easier to complete, without the presence of restrictions. Compound and light microscopes represent the primary tools to have during simple or more complex research studies. Fortunately the market is now set to offer everyone a professional tool. How to distinguish which product offers a lively and accurate study process? This question is fairly hard to approach given the wide range of models out for sale.

I always thought that microscopes represent the vital core of science these days. As a result, I look with attention at the tool’s capacity to render quality images on various specimens. There are various scientific fields which require the use of specific microscopes, some digital, stereo or compound. For more more complex studies microscopes come equipped with advanced lighting, desinged to bring to the surface the particularities of specimens. I use a simple compound microscopes, which cost around $300 bucks from Amazon. I got it on sale and it brought me hours and hours of joy. Today, my AmScope microscope works without any problems whatsover. It has two years of almost daily use now!
