How to Buy the Right MicroscopeHow to buy the Right Microscope

A free, illustrated guide to the Microscope.

Fundamentally, using a microscope involves light.  From the time it exits the glass bulb, until it enters the observer's eye, the light has passed through any number of lenses, filters, coatings, and prisms, finally making the miracle possible - the invisible is made visible.

With so much to know about such an instrument, and so little explanation out there, how can you get what is best for you and your budget?

Reading this guide will help you decide what to buy and why.

Hello, I'm John Lind, founder and President of GreatScopes Microscopes.

I know it can be overwhelming wading through mounds of information when selecting a microscope.  Soon your brain is throbbing with options, features, and new terms.

Some dealers even throw out meaningless terms like "research quality" and "clinical grade" only to confuse you more.

We've prepared this e-Book as a course for folks who want to learn more about microscopes.

It has been commended and recommended by doctors and nurses, biologists & lab techs, moms & dads all over the world.  Even one Medical School sends incoming freshmen here for the bottom line on microscopes!

This course has been imitated by too many websites to number, but no one has come close to duplicating what you are about to read.

You'll learn what makes a good microscope – from construction – to optics – to lighting systems – then on to focus mechanisms – and finally on to lesser known microscope components that you'll need to know more about.
