Forensic Comparison Microscopes

Comparison Microscope Uses

Forensic comparison microscopes are used for viewing bullet fragments, shrapnel, firearms, cartridge cases, opaque specimens, and other samples that need identification, origin, and comparison. These high-quality comparison microscopes are used by police officers, ballistics scientists, forensics scientists, and criminologists to compare evidence and solve crimes. Many departments of law enforcement use a comparison microscope in forensic science.

How Does a Comparison Microscope Work

When using a forensic comparison microscope, samples are placed on two stages and viewed simultaneously with the use of a built-in split screen in the bridge that connects the two viewing heads. This allows law enforcement or forensic scientists to compare samples side by side and accurately determine if they are a match.

For advanced applications or professional environments such as police departments, UNITRON forensic microscopes include all the features you may need. These comparison microscopes include bullet holders, halogen or LED illumination options, polarized filters, ergonomic tables, a six-step magnification changer, and auxiliary lenses to adjust the magnification and working distance.

Besides aiding in solving crimes, forensic comparison microscopes can also be used to confirm signatures by comparing them side by side, and they are also used when pinpointing historical dates. We currently offer a few digital microscopes and stereo microscopes for forensic science.
