Buy microscopes with top light in Levenhuk online store


Beginning microscope users often ask how they can observe opaque objects with their microscopes. Usually it appears that their microscopes have only lower illumination, which unfortunately makes observing non-transparent objects impossible. That’s why if you want to buy a microscope and intend on observing opaque samples, look for microscopes with upper illumination.

As opaque objects don’t transmit light, they can only be observed in reflected light, meaning that the illumination source of the observing system should be located above the observed sample. Microscopes with an illumination source placed above the stage (and hence above the observed objects) are known as microscopes with upper illumination. The upper light can be built-in or designed as a removable source of light.

Microscopes with upper illumination are especially useful for collectors (for example, you can easily observe coins, stamps or any other object of your passion for collecting), engineers, jewelers, watch-makers, etc. Even if you didn’t recognize yourself from the previous sentence, observing non-transparent samples will still be quite interesting for you. For example, observing things such as paper, sand, cloth, wood and many others is surprisingly entertaining and can lead to useful discoveries.

All microscopes collected in this category come with built-in or removable upper illumination. For more information on the type of supplied upper light source, please refer to the specific product description. Among these models you can also find digital microscopes (with built-in digital camera or camera included in the kit), which allows you to not only study opaque objects of interest, but also take pictures and record videos of your observations.
