The images above illustrate the typical microscope lamps used by most manufacturers. It is important to use the correct lamp for each microscope model. Too high a wattage or wrong voltage may produce less output and could very possibly damage your microscope power supply. The correct filament type and filament placement are also crucial to proper microscope performance; an incorrect choice can result in poor, uneven image illumination and poor function of options such as darkfield and Nomarski DIC.
