Biological / Compound Microscopes

Biological / Compound Microscopes
Compound microscopes sometimes known as biological microscopes refers to the optical system that produces the high magnifications typically in the range of 40X to 400X although they can go much higher than this. The light travels in a single path from the light source to the eyepiece—even if a binocular head is being used—causing images to appear two-dimensional. 

Because it contains its own light source in its base, a compound light microscope is also considered a bright field microscope.

Bright field microscopy simply means that the specimen is lit from below and viewed from above.

With bright field illumination, the sample’s contrast comes from its absorption of the light, as opposed to dark field illumination where the contrast comes from the sample scattering the light.

Biological microscopes are most popular as one can see the truly "invisible" things like blood cells, amoebas and bacteria
