Inverted microscopes are invaluable in the laboratory for cell analysis. Choosing an inverted microscope requires taking into account the magnification by the objective lenses. A typical inverted microscope comes with three to six objective lenses, which range from 4x to 40x. One may also want to consider accessory equipment, such as a camera, confocal adaptors, and fluorescence tools. The size of an inverted microscope depends on the number of objectives and attachments, so compact and larger options are available.
