If you're looking for research binocular microscopes, it will help if you can narrow your search down a little by knowing what other features are necessary for the tasks you want to perform. There is simply a vast selection of research binocular microscopes out there, and they can range from very simple ones to incredibly sophisticated ones, each different model having a different role to play. Let's take a look at some of the options.

For example, research binocular microscopes can have a varying number of objectives. The most common type of objective is an achromatic, which gives a flat field in approximately 60 percent of the image, but a semi-plan objective will give you around 80 percent flat field, and a plan objective up to 90 percent flat field. Semi plan, although more expensive than an achromatic objective, is still more affordable that a plan objective and will allow a much greater field of accurate vision.

Research Binocular Microscopes and Magnification

To decide what kind of research binocular microscopes you need, you also need to decide how much magnification is required, (how many objectives you'll require). You can get from two to four. For research binocular microscopes, you'll need dual left and right controls for complete control over focus.

If you are buying research binocular microscopes that will be used by many different people, easy adjustment of the interpupillary distance and other adjustable features will also be important. If you will be looking at large and greatly varied specimens, then you might think of looking at a boom microscope for more adjustability. As always, before you buy any kind of microscope it is worth giving careful consideration to what you'll be using it for so that you can get the best model for the job!
