A microscope is a device used to view a magnified image of an object not visible to the naked eye. Various types of microscopes such as electron microscope, optical microscope and binocular microscope are available in the market. A binocular microscope is a microscope with two eyepieces and a single objective, through which you can see the object. It permits both eyes to watch at a time through a single objective. A binocular microscope has two eyepiece lens, a tube, an arm, a base and an illuminator. The eyepiece lens comes with an adjustable magnification power.
Microscopes play a vital part in observing and studying microorganisms and thus, in the diagnosis of various microbial infections. Various new and unrecognized microorganisms are adversely affecting the human body and projecting a major threat to human life. To develop treatment options for such microbial infections, the biology of the microorganism needs to be studied first where a microscope plays an important role. The magnified image of a microorganism helps scientists, students and research and development professionals understand the structure of the microorganism so treatment options can be developed accordingly. Binocular microscopes are designed on the principle of geometric beam splitting where the resolution of the rear exit pupil is split.
The incidences of new infections are on the rise and each time, the structure of the microorganism is different. Thus, there is a need to study the cell structure of the microorganism, which is driving the binocular microscope market. Binocular microscopes offer a comfort during use as they are equipped with two eyepieces. In industrial research and diagnostic labs where microscopes are used around the clock, microscopes with single eyepieces can put additional strain on the eye and hamper observational and analytical capability. Hence, binocular microscopes are preferred among these institutes, which is driving the growth of the market. Features such as easy handling and adjusting for desired magnification, adjustable inclination and 360 degree rotation make binocular microscope the preferred choice in the market. The cost-efficient nature of binocular microscopes as compared to other microscopes makes them the go-to product for students and other research personnel.
On the other hand, the adoption of advanced microscopes such as electron microscopes and optical microscopes hampers the growth of the binocular microscope market.
