Stereo Optics
A hallmark of more expensive microscopes, patented stereo optics deliver true 3D, stereo images, without the need for eyepieces that are difficult to use. Operators can easily switch between true magnifications of 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x, and 10x.

Better lighting, both reflected and transmitted, is adjustable for pin-sharp images.  Depth perception and color rendition is truer, making inspection of complex surfaces more accurate.

The latest in ergonomic design provides a wide viewing area to allow operators to wear eyeglasses while working. It also reduces eye strain, which is a source of muscle fatigue. The Mantis design allows an operator to comforably view the projected image, offering longer working distance and greater freedom of head and body movement.
