The microscope is a laboratory instrument used to observe elements or structures that cannot be seen with the naked eye, using a series of lenses, viewfinders and rays of light, which zoom in or enlarge the image at convenient scales for examination and subsequent analysis.

Various types of microscopes exist, from single lens magnifying glass to novel electronic microscopes. The microscope was invented in the sixteenth century and has been perfected to this day, giving rise to novel equipment with quite specific applications that allow to observe the smallest objects.
