The iScope microscope is supplied with specific attachments that turn the iScope into a state-of-the-art material science microscope suitable for various applications.

There are three types of materials science microscopes; Metallurgical and polarization microscopes and microscopes especially for asbestos identification.

Microscopes for materials science applications have specific objectives and other equipment like incident illuminations, polarization, and compensation filters. This allows precise observation of materials like metals, plastics, minerals, asbestos, glass, wood, and chemical materials.

Geneq offers a range of metallurgical microscopes, microscopes with rotatable stages and stain-free objectives for polarized light observation, microscopes for asbestos identification, and inverted materials science microscopes.
