With optics placed beneath the samples, these are the microscopes that perform best in the fields of life-science research. Gravity makes samples sink to the bottom of a holder with an aqueous solution, making it challenging to see crucial details from above.

Not only are inverted microscopes a perfect choice for life-science research, but industrial applications as well. As optics are below the state, samples are placed above objectives, meaning as a user, you will have a greater working distance and can work with larger, heavier samples that can weigh up to 30 kg in some instances. Our curated selection of inverted microscopes can also enable you to look at more samples in a shorter time, increasing productivity and efficiency, as there are fewer steps to follow when placing and magnifying slides.

We provide many inverted microscopes from the most innovative, industry-leading brands found on the market today worldwide with a vast array of features and choices to cover our customers' needs.

With our inverted microscopes, gone are the days of crashing your objective into your sample. The design of these magnificent microscopes helps reduce the risk of crashing the objective significantly. These high-quality instruments often come with an upper focus stop functionality that provides additional security by defining the upper limit of the nosepiece. With this feature in place you can protect your investment, focus on your task at hand and spend far less time worrying about the possible damage to your tool and sample.

Inverted microscopes are available with either brightfield transmitted/incident (bottom) illumination, phase contracts, or epi-fluorescence. Epi-fluorescence is incredibly fantastic for viewing specimens on slides and metallurgical applications.
