SELECTING A COMPOUND MICROSCOPE is as easy as 1-2-3...

Select the type of microscope you need or your industry

Select by type of microscope - Our Compound Microscope Assortment has been divided into major categories to make your shopping easy.

These categories include:

Brightfield, Darkfield, Phase-Contrast, Inverted and others

Choose a business application or industry to find the right compound microscope. Major industries or applicatins include:

Veterinary, Laboratory Use, Teaching, Metallurgical, Gemology and many others

Select a Magnification

AmScope offers an industry-leading selection of magnifications. All products are in-stock and usually ship the same day ordered

Select a Camera

We offer a wide variety of Cameras for every application - from student to professional use:

Select a type of camera - Eyepiece, USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 - to name the most popular choices

Choose the Megapixels of the camera - the higher the megapixel count on a camera sensor the greater the amount of detail that can be captured in an image

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

  • 2 levels of stereo magnification from 20X to 40X
  • A halogen top-light provides incident illumination for opaque objects.
  • The compact design is perfect for students and hobbyists with limited space.
  • The pillar stand provides more flexibility to position the microscope head, including adjusting the height.
  • The digital eyepiece camera lets you view live images on any PC or Mac, with the ability to record photos and videos.

The SE304-P is an ultra-compact stereo microscope designed primarily for students and hobbyists. The microscope is equipped with two pairs of high-quality objective lenses, and can use various eyepieces for multiple levels of magnification. This simplicity and versatility has made it popular among coin collectors and engravers. Younger users will find the instrument easy to use thanks to the modest magnification range, and the stereo optics which provide three-dimensional viewing and upright images. The rear-oriented head places the observation stage farther away from the user for extra room when using certain tools or props. The microscope uses a pillar for height-adjustment, allowing free vertical and rotational adjustment. A single light-source is mounted above the stage to provide the necessary illumination for observing opaque objects.

Two pairs of objective lenses provide 20X and 40X stereo magnification when used with the included 10X eyepieces. This range is intended for common soldering and mechanical repair, and inspecting larger objects. The objective magnification can be changed by simply rotating the nosecone to switch lenses. The viewing head uses 30.5mm ocular tubes to provide an extra-large field-of-view. One ocular tube has an integrated dioptric adjuster for users with astigmatism, or to fine-tune focus when using a camera in place of the eyepiece. The head can be adjusted for any user using rotating binocular adjustment to guarantee proper alignment with the eyes. Various eyepieces are available to expand the magnification range.

Focus can be adjusted by using symmetrical knobs for fine adjustments, or more coarsely by vertically sliding the head along the pillar. The pillar also allows rotation for lateral adjustment, and can accommodate a slightly larger working distance compared to the track-stand model thanks to this free adjustment. Tension in the focus knobs can be adjusted using an included spanner wrench, ensuring comfortable use.

An incandescent lamp is mounted to the focus block, providing built-in illumination. This reflected lighting can be used for opaque and semi-opaque objects. The warm halogen light is easy on the eyes, and produces a full spectrum for accurate color reproduction.

The microscope’s stage uses a simple design with a reversible plate and two stage-clips. The stage-plate has a white side and a black side for selectable contrast when viewing light or dark objects. The stage-clips can be used to hold smaller objects in place by pinning them to the stage or restricting lateral movement.

Monitor and capture photos and videos with the included 0.3MP digital eyepiece camera. The compact, lightweight camera can be used in place of an eyepiece to watch live images, and to record photos or videos on your computer. This ability to view microscopic images on your computer reduces eye-strain, and allows groups of people to view images at the same time. Our professional software for Windows provides a wide assortment of capture and photo-editing functions including color correction, time-lapse capture, image stitching, and a full complement of measuring tools. A lite version of our software is available for Mac and Linux with essential functionality for capturing photos and videos.
