An electron microscope can magnify millions of times while the best light microscopes can accurately only magnify 1000x. The problem with electron microscopes is that they can only view dead organisms.

What is one advantage of using light microscope rather than a more powerful electron microscope?
when using an electron microscope, the sample must be dead, not living. on light microscopes, the sample can be either dead or living. ...

What is an advantage of using an electronic microscope?
The electron microscope can magnify by a larger factor than an optical microscope can, thereby enabling us to see even smaller objects. ...
Why electron microscope is called as electron microscope?
The resolution of electron microscope is much higher than that of light microscope, allowed detailed ultra-structural examination. That's why electron microscope is called so. ...
