You're requesting a teaching microscope. Teaching microscopes come with two heads and a pointer unit. They are expensive. Nikon makes the best face to face and side by side teaching microscopes. These are typically used for Medical Resident teaching and college level.

I suspect you mean you need a microscope for a teacher.

One of the most popular microscopes for colleges is the Leica C ME. When bought in bulk, they can be less than $800.00, and even less if you don't require an oil objective.

If budget is your concern, I would recomend the Labomed CXL or the Accuscope 3002.

I hope this information is helpful to you in your quest for a microscope to fit your needs.

There are 4 major brands (Zeiss, Nikon, Leica, and Olympus) that sell to universities etc but these are more expensive than some other manufacturers that are less well known but with high quality standards (Motic, Meiji). A well designed site with pricing information is The owners are knowledgeable and helpful. Always look at the scope with your samples or request an evaluation period on the PO.

What is the other types of microscope ? how do they differ from a compound microscope ?

Compound Microscope
  • Compound microscopes can be found in most biology and science classrooms. They are electrically operated and use light to enhance the image of a cell. They will have multiple lenses for viewing.
Dissecting Microscope
  • Dissecting microscopes are also known as stereo microscopes. They have low magnification and are also light powered. These microscopes can view objects larger than what a compound microscope is able to handle, in three dimensions.
  • A Scanning Electron Microscope uses electrons instead of light to create an image. These microscopes produce three-dimensional images with high resolution and magnification. They also have a larger depth of focus.
  • Transmission Electron Microscopes use electrons instead of light to create an image. The material prepared must be very thin. The beams of electrons that pass through it give the viewer high magnification and resolution. These give two-dimensional images.

The white list black list gives me the impression that this is something on your network that is not allowing it to work. My school has a white list black list system for websites. Have you tried installing the qx5 on an freestanding computer to see if that works ok?
