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

  • 5.3MP back-illuminated CMOS camera
  • Higher quantum efficiency
  • Multi-platform software solutions
  • Includes calibration slide for on-screen measurements

The 5.3MP USB2.0 MU530-BI is part of our back-illuminated CMOS camera series. Back-illuminated CMOS sensors provide higher quantum-efficiency by moving the photo-diode layer in front of the electronic components, increasing photon-absorption. This translates to less image-noise and dark-current while maintaining high speeds.

The included software for Windows, Mac, and Linux provides an imaging solution for photography and videography. The Windows (XP/Vista/7/8/10) version provides an extensive toolset for image-processing and measurements. A lite version of the application is provided for Mac and Linux.
