Home > Microscopes > Clinical Microscope

A Clinical Microscope is used to examine biological material to make proper diagnoses and identification of pathogens. This is generally used by a lab technician or physician in a clinical setting. The technique applied in such microscopy requires glass slides on which the specimens are placed. This specimen is viewed using transmitted illumination from below the slide. The clinical microscope is classified as a high power biological compound light microscope. It contains similar part as that of a compound microscope with variations in specifications. The versions of such microscope may be either binocular or trinocular, with the trinocular clinical microscope having a camera port for capturing still or video images of the biological medical specimens.
