The increasing scope of these instruments, such as in the polymer industry, agriculture, nanotechnology, and atomic studies, would further fuel the demand.

The stereomicroscope's effective use is now in surgery and medicine, where it is mostly used as a research device to analyze, inspect, and perform surgical procedures on the specimen. This is widely used in micro-surgery and sectioning procedures. Stereomicroscopes may help to enhance the routine work of researchers and clinicians doing surgery-related research on small animals and rodents, i.e., mice, rabbits, hamsters, and so on, for developmental biology or medical studies. The purpose of utilizing stereomicroscopes is to benefit the work steps proficient and cost-effective. To maximize the results and lessen the studies' costs, it is essential to remove variability through optimized surgical techniques and apparatus.

Stereomicroscopes can also be used to conduct neurosurgery where live clamping on particular nerves, e.g., on the sciatic nerve on the hind limb, is necessary. Resolution and working distance are key concerns during this operation, and stereomicroscopes on a large swing arm stand have a reasonably workable solution. In addition to increased vision during MCAO, greater performance, and more excellent reproducibility, the stereomicroscopes often have a clean setup to keep working conditions hygienic. Their advanced lighting network allows less cramped workspace in the field with no wires or cold lamps.

Stereomicroscopes can also prove useful in small animal cancer research to understand the process behind the role of hormones and additional signaling proteins in mammary carcinogenesis. They can also perform neurosurgery where live clamping on particular nerves is needed, e.g., on the hind limb's sciatic nerve. The stereomicroscope with fluorescence module can characterize the fluorescence of surgically extracted tissue from small animals, such as mice. The stereo fluorescence microscope has excellent resolution, high numerical aperture, a rapid increase in magnification, and strong fluorescence illumination, which enable the analysis of target anatomical structures in breast cancer science.

Rising Technological Advancements

Stereo- microscopes are available with advanced optics that allow scientists to view a whole species or specimen, understand the structure, and deeply gather the 3D information. Live fruit fly, nematode, or zebrafish are the species that can be examined under such instruments. For example, Leica MZ12, a Leica Microsystem product, provides a good resolution and magnification for a better image of the live sample. Binoculars or a stereoscope gives a suitable image of the target with the correct magnification range. Determining an object's configuration in detail, such as form, material, and stereoscopic microscopes, is useful in various sectors (mainly in life science and industrial inspections), which is beneficial. After binocular, an instrument called a trinocular microscope contains two eyepieces and one camera attached to the instrument that gives the recorded video HD image according to the requirement.

The technologically advanced stereo microscopes are available in the market. For instance, Aven Tools offers DSZ-70PFL, a stereo microscope system with superior optics & reliable mechanical components with a high-power magnification range. Vision Engineering Ltd. provides a wide array of stereo microscopes such as Mantis Compact, Mantis Elite, Mantis Elite-Cam HD, Lynx, Lynx EVO, Lynx VS8, SX25, SX45, SX45-TR, SX80, and SX100.

Technological development in such instruments provides its use in various fields to help the market grow. The zoom microscope produced by Motic, for example, can be used in different application areas, such as biomedical and industrial. Therefore, these increasing areas of application for stereo microscopes are one of the driving factors that help the market grow.

GFP illuminators are the recently developed illuminators used in various applications such as science and electronics manufacturing. The large specimens in the life science sector, such as larvae, zebrafish, nematodes, oocytes, and mature insects, can be easily selected and operated using fluorescence techniques stereomicroscopes. Fluorescent stereo microscopes have a smoother workflow with rapid switching between fluorescence, filters, bright field, and easy zooming in and out as needed.

The lighting with fluorescence provides ergonomic workflow and documentation/imaging. The image analysis includes documenting behavioral changes and capturing mutant phenotypes. Stereo microscopy documentation also involves different digital color camera setups to offer a colorful image. Furthermore, the fluorescence illumination stereomicroscope can develop in the market with proper documentation and a 3D image. For example, GFP illuminators are used in stereomicroscopes to provide in-depth information on any field such as research, manufacturing of electronics, biology, medicine, biomedical engineering, materials science, and mechanical engineering.
