|Compound Microscope High Power Objective Lenses|
Students typically use either a compound microscope in biology class, or a stereo dissecting microscope. A stereo dissecting microscope provides lower magnification (typically 10x - 40x) and is used to view anything you might hold in the palm of your hand such as coins, flowers, insects, or a frog. A compound microscope requires the use of slides and cover slips for viewing samples the naked eye can not see such as bacteria or cells.
