Inverted Microscopes

Discover our wide range of inverted CETI Microscopes.

The inverted microscope is a fundamentally a microscope with a light source and condenser on the top, above the stage pointing down. Also the objectives and turret are below the stage pointing up. The stage of an inverted microscope is usually fixed, and focus is adjusted by moving the objective lens along a vertical axis towards and away from the specimen.

Inverted microscopes are useful for observing living cells or organisms at the bottom of a large container (e.g., a tissue culture flask) under more natural conditions than on a glass slide, as is the case with a conventional microscope. This design of product is often used in micromanipulation applications where space above the specimen is required for manipulator mechanisms and the microtools they hold, and in metallurgical applications where polished samples can be placed on top of the stage and viewed from underneath using reflecting objectives.
