Hii!! Which microscope do u use for this works? I love so much this area, and i want to make one lab in my home..

Hi Caroline! In this particular image I was not using a microscope, but a Canon 5D camera with a good macro lens. These worms are not so tiny ;) For the other images here, I use Zeiss and Olympus stereo and compound microscopes from the laboratories I have worked, but they are a bit large for home use. But there are options for home scopes as well!
