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

  • Highly-sensitive color 1.3MP USB 3.0 camera for microscopy
  • Cutting-edge global-shutter CMOS technology provides better precision in capturing subjects in motion
  • High responsivity improves quality and reduces capture times for fluorescence and darkfield applications
  • Professional software for PC with extensive imaging tools specific to microscopy
  • Includes calibration slide for on-screen measurements

The MU153-GS is a highly-sensitive, high-speed global-shutter camera designed for low-light microscopy applications including fluorescence. The 1.5MP sensor favors speed and sensitivity over resolution. Able to capture faint signals, the sensor can rapidly produce images with a maximum framerate of 164fps at full resolution, and 320fps at lower resolution. Using a global shutter, the camera does not suffer from rolling-shutter distortion. This will be beneficial when imaging moving specimens.

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. 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.
