Preparing your samples
Stereoscopes are a subset of macroscopes (ie scopes for looking at quite big things). Perhaps we shouldn't have one in the microscopy facility then? The "stereo" bit refers to the fact that your left and right eyes get a slightly different view and things look 3D. Our stereoscope has two cameras and imaging modes:
The stereoscope can produce total magnification of between 12x and 150x (so the maximum magnification is equivalent to a 15x objective on a fluorescence scope).
