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

  • Set of four lenses: 0.5X, 1X, 1.5X, and 2X
  • 48mm mounting thread for SM and SW series stereo microscopes

This is a set of 4 common Barlow lenses for our SM and SW series stereo microscope heads. The included magnifications are: 0.5X, 1X, 1.5X, and 2X. The 0.5X lens will reduce the objective magnification by half, increasing the field-of-view and the working distance. The 1X lens is used primarily as protection for your microscope's objective lenses from smoke and abrasive materials while performing tasks such as soldering. The 1.5X and 2X lenses increase the overall magnification by their respective amounts, as well as decrease field-of-view and working distance. They all use a 48mm (1-7/8") mounting thread.
