I am a Engineering University student, in my last year of completion of my degree. I had interests in biochemistry and biology since I was a kid, and been learning about that side by side in my spare time.
I want to get into biomedical research and buy a suitable microscope for that purpose.
After following various guides and info I could find, I have decided to go for a well manufactured compound microscope of high quality. But these fishy companies majorly Chinese are troubling me, with top companies like Leica, Nikon, Zeiss etc having quite same reviews.
I haven't yet decided the Manufacturer I want to buy from. I am willing to go for around $1500 for a well reputed manufacturer. There are numerous choices even within the top companies.
What are some best suggestions and recommendations for Compound Microscope according to my needs?
all suggestions are welcomed.
