Stereo Inspection Microscope FAQs

What is a stereo microscope?

A stereo microscope is a type of microscope used to provide a 3D (three-dimensional) view of a specimen or sample. Also known as a stereo zoom microscope, a stereo microscope includes separate objective lenses and two separate eyepieces, providing a different optical path for each eye. As each eye sees a slightly different angle, the end result is a three-dimensional visual.

What are the uses of a stereo microscope?

A stereo microscope is used to enable enhanced 3D viewing of specimens that are visible to the naked eye. Stereo microscopes can be used in microbiology, for example, to view plant life or insects; in mineralogy, for example, to analyze rocks or crystals; or for technical applications such as viewing circuit boards for quality control.
