SELECTING A COMPOUND MICROSCOPE is as easy as 1-2-3...

Select the type of microscope you need or your industry

Select by type of microscope - Our Compound Microscope Assortment has been divided into major categories to make your shopping easy.

These categories include:

Brightfield, Darkfield, Phase-Contrast, Inverted and others

Choose a business application or industry to find the right compound microscope. Major industries or applicatins include:

Veterinary, Laboratory Use, Teaching, Metallurgical, Gemology and many others

Select a Magnification

AmScope offers an industry-leading selection of magnifications. All products are in-stock and usually ship the same day ordered

Select a Camera

We offer a wide variety of Cameras for every application - from student to professional use:

Select a type of camera - Eyepiece, USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 - to name the most popular choices

Choose the Megapixels of the camera - the higher the megapixel count on a camera sensor the greater the amount of detail that can be captured in an image

The Higher the Magnification - The More Detail You'll See

Magnification 40x
Magnification 1000x
Magnification 2500x

Magnification is the ability of your microscope to make small objects seem larger. As the magnification increases the area being viewed will be decrease is size but the detail of the area being viewed will improve.

Amscope microscopes come with multiple magnifications to aid you in finding the proper magnification for viewing each specimen.

Camera Connection Types

When comaring 2.0 and 3.0 there are few major differences. First the transfer rates. USB 2.0 offers transfer rates of 480 Mbps and USB 3.0 offers transfer rates of 4.8 Gbps - that's 10 times faster.

Camera Resolution

The most important factor in ensuring successful microscopic imaging is choosing the appropriate optics and camera for your application that gives you more data and higher image quality. When selecting a microscope camera, it is best to base your decision on the most important requirements for your microscopic observation.

Key Features

  • 40X to 1000X magnification range using a reversed quintuple lens turret for five unique settings.
  • A scalable epi-fluorescence microscope for laboratories and universities with wide-spectrum 100W mercury HBO arc-lamp and four turret-mounted filter blocks
  • Includes ultraviolet, violet, blue, and green excitation filter blocks for popular fluorochromes
  • A robust, high-performance microscope with superior optics and mechanical design
  • Super-widefield optics provide a larger field-of-view so you can see more specimen at any magnification
  • The infinity-corrected optical system reduces distortion and improves color accuracy.
  • The Koehler illumination system provides centered, evenly-distributed lighting with a field aperture for maximum contrast and definition.
  • The trinocular head provides a dedicated photo port for mounting a camera.
  • Monitor and capture photos and videos with the included back-illuminated 20MP USB 3.0 camera. Professional microscopy software for Windows, Mac, and Linux provide tools for image processing, measuring, and more.

The FM820T is an upright fluorescence microscope with transmitted and reflected lighting, and a six-filter turret. The microscope is built around an infinity-corrected optical system with a wide magnification range, and Koehler diascopic and episcopic illumination. The powerful 100W, wide-spectrum, mercury-vapor episcopic illuminator uses a rotary filter-selector which can house up to six fluorescence filter-blocks; already included are ultraviolet, violet, blue, and green excitation blocks. The sub-stage illuminator uses a 30W halogen lamp with field-lens and diaphragm for even, high-contrast lighting.

Viewing Head

The microscope's head is designed for precision and comfort. The super-widefield optics provide a larger field-of-view so you can see more specimen at any magnification. Compensation-free Siedentopf interpupillary adjustment allows any user to properly align the oculars without readjusting focus. For users with astigmatism or asymmetrical vision, the left ocular can be adjusted to fine-tune focus. The photo port is equipped with a 23mm tube for attaching cameras with compensating lenses, and is height-adjustable to match focus with the eyepieces. The port is compatible with our YX series C-mount adapters which can attach directly to C-mount cameras without a compensating lens – ideal for 1” format sensors. The head is set to a 30° incline which is ideal for viewing from a standing position, and it can be rotated 360°.

Optics

The infinity-corrected optical system eliminates optical errors when using filters and other in-line components, ensuring highly precise images. The quintuple objective turret provides instant access to 5 magnification levels. This allows you to efficiently move through magnifications from 40X to 1000X. The turret's reversed orientation provides more working room above the stage. These high-quality lenses are achromatically corrected to improve resolution and color accuracy, with planatic flat-field correction to provide edge-to-edge sharpness.



The Stage

The 2-layer mechanical stage provides smooth and precise movement for examination of specimen slides, with a large translation range for viewing larger samples. The stage's low-position controls are conveniently placed near the coaxial focus knobs for a streamlined workflow. Examining specimen slides is intuitive and precise for users at any skill level. Symmetrical focus controls are coaxially mounted for fast, intuitive focusing. A height limit can be set to prevent contact damage, as well as presetting optimal focus distance.

Koehler Transmitted Illumination

Built on Koehler illumination principals, the sub-stage lighting provides evenly-distributed light for optimal contrast. The rear-mounted 30W halogen light-source provides 100 CRI illumination with ample brightness for contrast-enhancement methods like darkfield. The lower color temperature of the halogen light-source causes less eyestrain compared to high-Kelvin LED. The light condenser uses a swing mechanism for optimized lighting at both high and low magnifications, with a NA0.25 setting for full coverage at extremely low magnifications. An iris diaphragm allows you to adjust the aperture to optimize contrast and depth-of-field. The condenser holder uses rack-and-pinion height adjustment for precision control, and is centerable for proper alignment. The condenser is top-mounted for easier replacement when working with additional condensers. The illuminator's field lens provides an iris diaphragm to control light-spread, optimizing contrast and definition in specimen features.

Epi-fluorescence Illumination

The epi-fluorescence illumination system adds incredible versatility to the microscope. The ability to isolate fluorescing compounds allows you to target individual proteins and other nuances. This microscope is equipped with a six-position filter turret for easy transitions. Four filter blocks are already mounted (ultraviolet, violet, blue, and green) for popular labeling agents and natural fluorophores. The illuminator uses a high-power mercury arc-lamp for wide-spectrum excitation.
