Microscopes and other optical instruments

Microscopes are optical instruments used to magnify small objects that are too small to view with the human eye or that you want to see in greater detail. With a microscope or other optical instrument, the original size of a particular object can be increased hundreds or thousands of times. This allows the object or material to be viewed and / or examined in detail.

Microscopes for different purposes

Medicine, healthcare and other biology-based sectors and studies such as biomedical sciences, biophysics, forensic sciences and microbiology are perhaps the most anticipated studies and areas to use microscopes. In this sector, microscopes are mainly used to study objects and samples, such as cell properties, fibers and other cell materials.

Although microscopes and other optical instruments were initially used for chemical and medical applications in science, today they are used in many more industries and areas. For example, they are used in geological science, pharmaceuticals, quality assurance, but also in education in fields such as biology, chemistry and physics.
