Microscopes

Buying a microscope is always a fun activity. Microscopes make the smallest world big. Things that we cannot perceive with our naked eye and that normally remain hidden from us, we can suddenly see very clearly. Whether it concerns the minute scratches in a gold ring, the veins of a leaf, the skin of an insect or, even smaller, the shapes and colors of cells and bacteria – thanks to the microscope we have gained insight into all this matter. The microscope unlocks a reality that is normally too small to see. For example, optical instruments have drastically changed our perspective on the world in several ways.

Buy a new or used microscope

At Ganymedes you can buy two different types of new and second-hand microscopes: stereo microscopes and biological microscopes. The last category can be subdivided into the monocular and the binocular. Stereo microscopes are especially suitable for examining jewelry, rocks, mosses and insects, for example. The magnification is lower than with the biological microscopes. The range is between 10x and 60x. This is enough to be able to examine the above subjects carefully. By the way, you look through this microscope with two eyes.

Are you going for a monocular or binocular microscope?

A monocular biological microscope is suitable for short examination, the binocular for longer and more extensive examination. Furthermore, the difference is that you look through the monocular with one eye and through the binocular with two eyes. The magnification has a range of 20x to no less than 1000x. This makes these microscopes extremely suitable for examining even the smallest preparations.
