Stereomicroscopes have two oculars, one for each eye to enable stereo viewing. The range of magnification for most microscopes is between 10 x and 40 x. The magnification required for insemination is 10 x to 15 x (i.e. ocular 10 x with an objective 1,5 will enable an enlargement of 15 x). A working space of 90 to 110 mm is preferable.

Be sure the microscope and instrument you choose are compatible and allow adequate working space for the syringe. Not all types of microscopes are suitable to use with the insemination instrument.
