The Best Stereo and Zoom Microscopes Available Today

Vision Engineering Microscopes

Stereo microscopes, also known as stereoscopic microscopes, are amazing tools for viewing extremely small objects that are perceptible (but just barely) by the unaided human eye.

Many of these “low power” microscopes have the able to zoom to adjustable magnification levels. Stereo zoom microscopes can magnify circuits, computer motherboards, insects, organic specimens (plants, fruits, flowers, etc.), plus many other tiny objects that operators need to examine in greater detail.

By exploiting our stereoscopic vision, and utilizing distinct optical paths for each sperate eye-piece, stereo microscopes give operators a more natural (for Homo sapiens, at least) 3D viewing experience.
The zooming capabilities of a stereo zoom microscope provide people working in variety of professions more freedom to view specimens (from ants to computer chips) from different angles, and in a range of adjustable magnification levels.

The Best Stereo Zoom Microscopes Available Today

Some of the best stereo and zoom microscopes on the market today is the Lynx EVO, made by the British firm Vision Engineering Inc.

Award-winning optical inspection microscopes, like the Lynx EVO offer operators outstanding ergonomic technology and simple-to-use optics, along with a 10:1 zoom ratio that delivers an impressive 6x to 60x magnification range.

Vision Engineering built its expanded-pupil technology into the Lynx EVO. This tech was designed to “address the issue of operator efficiency.” In essence, expanded-pupil technology makes microscopes easier humans to use, ultimately allowing them to be more productive with their time.

Expanded-pupil technology lets users sit farther away from their eyepieces, maintain more comfortable neck and body posture, and spend less time worrying about losing an image due to constant physical adjustments caused by strain or awkward head and body placement.

At Q Source Inc., we take pride in offering our clients the best value and better service. We carry the Vision Engineering line and offer reduced pricing on most models.
If you work with stereo magnification, why not work with the best magnification technology available on the market today?

Patented Mantis Systems

Patented Mantis Systems, built by Vision Engineering, are a respected line of quality ergonomic 3D stereo microscopes. These microscopes were created to free up the hands of operators and minimize eye fatigue and muscle cramping that comes from sitting in uncomfortable positions.

Ergonomic in design, Mantis Systems are known for their “enhanced depth perception” and increased "access to peripheral vision" — all of which translate to ease of use.

Mantis System offers a fixed magnification Stereo Microscopes are renowned for their versatile applications and how simple they are to adjust.

This line of stereo microscopes offers incredible 3D imaging, letting operators move their heads about freely while working with magnified objects and other technical equipment nearby. The Mantis Elite-Cam HD, for capturing and saving images, along with different software packages, are other useful tools integrated into the Mantis designs.

If  stereoscopic magnification is what you’re after, you simply can’t go wrong with a Mantis System stereo microscope.
