Semen Microscope

A semen microscope or sperm microscope is used to identify and count sperm. These microscopes are used when breeding animals or for examining human fertility. You can view sperm at 400x magnification. You do NOT want a microscope that advertises anything above 1000x, it is just empty magnification and is unnecessary.

In order to examine semen with the microscope you will need depression slides, cover slips, and a biological microscope. Below are a few recommend semen microscopes. If you have any questions regarding examining sperm under the microscope feel free to contact Microscope World. Below are a few recommended semen microscopes.
