The stereo or stereoscopic or dissecting microscope is an optical microscope variant designed for low magnification observation of a sample, typically using light reflected from the surface of an object rather than transmitted through it. The instrument uses two separate optical paths with two objectives and eyepieces to provide slightly different viewing angles to the left and right eyes. This arrangement produces a three-dimensional visualization of the sample being examined. Stereomicroscopy overlaps macrophotography for recording and examining solid samples with complex surface topography, where a three-dimensional view is needed for analysing the detail.


  • Stereomicroscope delivers crisp, sharp, distortion-free 3D images from overview to small details.
  • Click stop or continuous range feature, sets at any suitable magnification.
  • Zoom systems can achieve total magnification by a set factor.
  • Long working distance allows to observe bigger samples.
  • Flexible, dual fiber optic light provides best illumination for the sample
  • Using the Axiocam digital camera, images can be captured.
  • Captured images can be processed with the computer and Axiovision software.
