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

  • Captures 5.0MP (2580X1944) high resolution fluorescence microscopy images
  • Streams live video on PC screens
  • Includes advanced editing, processing measuring software
  • Supports high quality print imaging in BMP, TIFF, JPG and other formats
  • Compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10
  • Compatible with Twain, DirectShow, Amcap, Minisee other third-party software

This is a 5MP color CCD camera for imaging in low-light conditions such as fluorescence-microscopy. To guarantee a high signal-to-noise performance, the camera features a built-in thermal-regulation system capable of decreasing the operating temperature by up to 30 degrees. This reduction in sensor-heat results in less self-noise during the light-capture and conversion processes.

An added benefit of the interline CCD sensor is its global shutter capture, which does not present the distortion seen with rolling shutter sensors. This equates to better consitency and less distortion during image-capture, and smoother movement in video. Because of the camera's accuracy and noise-control, the camera is capable of capturing long-exposures up to one hour.

This camera uses the C-mount standard for lens-attachment or instrument-coupling. With a wide array of lenses and coupling-adapters, the camera can be used with virtually any optical microscope on the market, including AmScope, Nikon, Olympus, Leica, and Zeiss.

The included Windows software offers image-development and measurement tools, as well as advanced compositing features. With the ability to calibrate scales at multiple magnifications, the software can be used for multi-level inspection. Independent preview and capture resolutions allow you to view high-speed video while simultaneously capturing high-definition images.
