Stereo Microscope Stands
Illumination and Stable Support for Stereos

These stereo microscope stands provide an ergonomic and stable stereo microscope platform, with or without illumination. They are compatible with most microscope models including those no longer in production.

All transmitted light bases and support stands include a sturdy 13" x 11" base plate with built-in wrist rests, black and white contrast plate, and stage clips to keep slides in place. The light bases include an external 150 watt cool fiber optic illuminator or a built-in 20 watt halogen illuminator. The light bases include heat filters to provide cool illumination, and their adjustable mirrors enable both brightfield and darkfield function.

These support stands have faithfully served our customers for decades, providing stable, reliable support.
