Dissecting Microscope Recommendations

Mar 8, 2021

With so many options on the market, how do you find the right dissecting microscope? Nuhsbaum carries the top brand of microscopes, so read about our stereo microscope recommendations for animal surgery, dissection and necropsy.

Dissecting microscope features to look for

There are a few features of dissecting microscopes that will make your job easier and your work higher quality. These are some of the basic features to look for:

  • FusionOptics: Keep you hands on your tools and see more of your specimen in focus without having to constantly adjust focus. Allows for precision animal surgery or necropsy by combining high resolution with excellent depth of field.
  • LED Illumination: LEDs are becoming the new standard for microscope illumination. While they can be a bit more expensive up front, they are long lasting, maintenance free, and provide true-color illumination.
  • Built-in Ergonomics: A much-appreciated quality-of-life improvement the can reduce fatigue and body strain caused by poor posture. It can make a significant difference if microscope use is core to your job functions.
  • Flexibility: A swing arm or flex arm stand can also help with the ergonomics of your model. Especially if you will be working with a variety of specimens, the flexibility of your workspace can add a lot of comfort to your workflow.
