Microscope World has several microscopes set up specifically for wastewater treatment facilities. The most important microorganism that wastewater treatment facilities are looking for is bacteria. In order to view the bacteria, phase contrast is utilized.

Protozoa are single-celled animals that are the most abundant animals in the world. Wastewater treatment facilities are looking for these creatures. Different forms of protozoa the wastewater treatment plant may be searching for include: amoebas, flagellates, free-swimming ciliates, and carnivore ciliates.
The ability to capture and record images while scanning specimens in wastewater treatment is helpful. The two digital microscopes most commonly used for wastewater treatment are the DC5-163PH and the DMBA310 with phase.
