Versatile microscopes with upper and lower illumination in Levenhuk online store


As you probably know, you need a microscope with a lower illumination to observe transparent specimens, and a microscope with a top light to observe opaque objects. As interesting things to observe include both transparent and non-transparent objects, in order to study all of them you need a microscope with lower light source and a microscope with top light. But it doesn’t seem to be very convenient and is certainly not very economical to have two different microscopes for both types of samples. That’s why a special type of microscopes is available – a microscope with combined illumination. Since they have illumination sources above and below the stage, these microscopes allow you to easily observe transparent and non-transparent samples.

All microscopes for observing both transparent and opaque objects presented in this category of the Levenhuk catalog feature built-in lower illumination of halogen or LED type. Please note that you won’t find microscopes equipped with incandescent lamps (tungsten light) in the Levenhuk online store as this type of illumination source is infamous for producing yellow light (which can affect the sample coloring) and a lot of heat (which can dry the sample out).

As for the upper illumination source, it may be a built-in as well as removable illuminator. All Levenhuk microscopes’ top lights are also LED or halogen. Both upper and lower illumination systems for the majority of Levenhuk microscopes in this category feature brightness adjustment for additional comfort of use.

So if you don’t want to limit your observations to transparent or opaque objects only, browse through this section of our catalog to find the perfect microscope model with both upper and lower illumination systems. Study everything you wish with Levenhuk!
