There are biological theory inverted microscope, metallurgical theory inverted microscope, fluorescence theory inverted microscope.
Biological theory inverted microscope and fluorescence theory inverted microscope are used for observing living cells or organisms at the bottom of a large container (e.g., a tissue culture flask). So these kinds of microscopes can be used for cell culture.
Inverted metallurgical microscopes are used in industrial manufacturing and quality checking. It can be used for large samples which a upright microscope cann‘t deal.
