There is an extensive range of microscopes, the simple microscopes, the more sophisticated ones and the complex microscopes like the ones with the many lens systems. The difference in the microscopes in one the basis of their resolution, enlargement, type of illumination method used, type of lens used etc.
Microscopes UK are types of microscopes that are manufactured solely in the United Kingdom and are much more affordable than those which are made outside. Depending on the type of radiation source, they can be generally categorized as light, electron and fluorescence microscopes. They basically perform the same function except that there sources are different. The microscopes that use light as the source of radiation are known as light microscopes. Electron microscopes are one of the complex ones and these use a torrent of electrons as the source of radiation instead of using light. These can guarantee much higher intensities of amplification and are used successfully in the arenas of studies such as geology, drugs and archaeology.
The newest types of microscopes to hit immense popularity with the scientist all around the world are the fluorescence microscope. Their prevalence is due to the fact that they lend a more realistic view to the microorganisms with the help of a complex mechanism. This microscope uses light to excite the samples to emit light which is of a much longer wavelength. Fluorescence is basically an inherent feature of many materials where it becomes luminous when excited by a light. In this technology digitally rich colored pictures of tiny organisms can be seen. This makes the viewing a very pleasant and enriching experience for both scientists and doctors alike.
