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

  • 16MP high-speed USB 3.0 digital camera captures still images and streams live videos on your computer
  • 0.55X Reduction Lens for Nikon Microscopes
  • User-friendly software is compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10, Mac OS X, and Linux
  • Sophisticated software for Windows offers editing, processing and advanced features including Stitching, EDF and measurement functions
  • Linux and Mac software records video and still images, with controls for exposure and color

The MU1603 is part of our high-speed camera line. With improved image-processing and USB 3.0 connectivity, this 16MP camera can achieve framerates of up to 26fps. The compact, all-metal design makes this a go-anywhere imaging solution. Drawing power from the USB connection, MU series cameras can be used at home, in a lab, or in the field. The industry-standard C-mount design allows this camera to be connected directly to C-mount photo-ports, and this package comes with a 0.55X reduction lens for Nikon microscopes, including: E100, E200, 50i, 55i, 80i, 90i, Ni series, Ti series, SMZ800, SMZ1000, and SMZ15000.

With software available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, the MU series 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.
