There is an extensive range of microscopes and they are the simple microscopes found in the school labs, the sophisticated ones and also the complex microscopes like the ones with the many lens systems. Microscopes UK differ on the basis of their resolve, enlargement, type of illumination method used, type of lens used etc.
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.
The fluorescent microscope is a very complex but effective equipment for learning about the cells and many of the invisible-to-the-eye or very tiny microorganisms. This is a many times used as the typical microscope for research in sciences like biology, geology and other different types of sciences or industries which require a thorough study of samples that cannot be inspected and examined by the naked human eye. For correctness and accuracy of scrutiny, the sample has a coating of green fluorescent protein which is commonly called the fluorophore. When light hits the sample, a light of a totally new wavelength is emitted from the sample which makes it a beautiful sight to behold.
