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 comparing 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

  • Monocular student microscope with top & bottom LED lights
  • 40X-1000X magnification range
  • Sturdy metal frame with coarse focusing
  • A collection of beautifully-illustrated experiment cards is included, with over a dozen fun activities geared towards STEM education.
  • Includes a 10-piece slide set

The M161-2L is designed to be an entry-level microscope for students, with a rugged build that will last for years. The compact design allows the microscope to be used just about anywhere. A convenient handle is built into the form for carrying around, and its ability to run on AC power or batteries makes it an ideal travel companion.

High-quality glass optics are used to provide clear, sharp images. Three objective lenses (4X, 10X, 40X) can be selected for increasing levels of magnification. Two eyepieces are included (10X, 20X) to increase the total magnification range to 40X-1000X. This will accommodate a wide variety of specimens, including cells, bacteria, and even sand. With two built-in lights, you can switch from the lower light -- which is used for slides -- to the top light for opaque specimens. The head can be rotated 360° to match the user's preference.

Everything needed to start using the microscope is in the box, including a starter set of slides with a mix of already-prepared slides, and some blank ones for preparing your own. To make things even better, we added a collection of 6 cards featuring fun and educational experiments for kids and grown-ups alike. Over a dozen activities will provide a clear and easy lesson-plan, designed to inspire interest in STEM education.
