Industrial Microscopes

Euromex D-Series Microscopes
Euromex industrial microscopes are used in a wide range of industrial applications as they provide high precision & accurate results.

Metascientific.com, as the leading UK distributor for Euromex microscopes, can supply a wide range of microscopes for inspection of printed circuit boards (PCB) and quality control purposes as well as for clinical use at Veterinary clinics, surgeons and referral centres.

Stereo Zoom Microscopes (6x-45x Magnification)

Euromex EZ-Series Microscopes
The stereo zoom microscope is often used to study the surfaces of solid specimens or to carry out close work such as dissection, microsurgery, watch-making, circuit board manufacture or inspection, and fracture surfaces as in fractography and forensic engineering.

Due to its high contrast and wide field of view, stereo microscopes are perfectly suitable for this type of use. The E- and Z-series microscopes from Euromex are used for research and quality control due to their brilliant optical performance.

See our
Products  pages for a complete list of microscopes and Accessories

Binocular Microscopes (40x-1000x Magnification)

Euromex FG-Series Microscopes
Unlike the stereo microscope, the compound, or binocular, microscope has two systems of lenses for greater magnification, the ocular, or eyepiece lens that one looks into and the objective lens, or the lens closest to the object.

These microscopes are ideal for applications needing true depth perception such as the inspection of metallic finishes, Binocular microscopes such as the Euromex F & G Series bright field biological microscopes are routine and research microscopes for use in science and biological, medical and industrial laboratories.
