There are many types of microscopes available and they are all different depending on the need of the user.
Here is a short list of the different types of microscopes available to choose from:
As you can see from the short list above there are many microscopes to choose from, so do be sure to stipulate the use for the microscope before purchasing. They can vary greatly in price depending on the quality and the usage. If you are looking for a microscope for the first time and have never purchased from a favoured company then maybe your friends or family can recommend a reputable retailer of microscopes to suit your needs.
If not and you are looking for a local retailer so that you can go into a shop and look at the microscopes before purchase, then a great place to start is in the local newspaper or local trade directory. Both of these publications will usually have advertisements where local companies can advertise their services and products. Contact a few of them and compare the quality and prices of microscopes that are suitable for your needs.
Many of the retailers of microscopes now have a website where you can browse through all the different microscopes and look at all the descriptions and images at your own leisure in your home or office. It is easy to find the retailers of microscopes that have a website. All that you need to do is go to an online search engine and type in the word ‘microscopes’ and it will return a list of relevant websites. If you are specifically looking for a local company to visit all you need to do is put you locality at the end of your search and it will return retailers in your area that have websites.
There are also multi-viewing microscopes available to purchase specially for consulting work or teaching and education where more than one person can view the contents under the microscope to give their differing opinions.
