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

  • 1.2MP Low-light CMOS camera
  • Up to 120fps at 640x480
  • Higher sensitivity for fluorescence and dark-field
  • Multi-platform software solutions
  • Includes calibration slide for on-screen measurements

The 1.2MP MU123-FL is a highly-sensitive, high-framerate C-mount camera for microscopes, ideal for low-light applications, especially qualitative analysis. The new generation CMOS sensor offers better sensitivity than comparable CCD cameras, and the fast data-transfer of CMOS technology. The C-mount connection provides flexibility in usage, including C-mount interfaces, reduction lenses, and adapters for most microscope brands. Fluorescence, darkfield, phase-contrast, and metallurgical microscopy will all benefit from the extreme low-light sensitivty. And for brightfield applications, the camera can be used at high frame-rates with ample illumination.

With software available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, this camera package is a multi-platform imaging solution. The included Windows software offers image-development and measurement tools, as well as advanced compositing features such as image-stitching and extended-depth-of-focus. A measurement calibration slide is included to properly calibrate the software's scale for use with the array of linear and geometric measurement tools. 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. For Mac and Linux, there is a lite version of the software which can capture video and still images, and includes limited processing features.
