Key Features:

  • A compact multi-purpose microscope with dual illumination and simple polarization for observation of metals, plastics, and biological samples.
  • A combination of six metallurgical and biological plan-achromatic objective lenses and two sets of eyepieces provide a range of magnifications from 40X to 800X
  • Use a combination of brightfield and simple polarization to bring out complex details such as stress in metal and other materials.
  • Includes a 14MP USB 3.0 camera and specialized microscopy software for PC, Mac, and Linux

This is a feature-packed, economical metallurgical microscope with an upright design, and both transmitted and incident illumination. The episcopic illuminator includes a removable polarizer and analyzer, as well as adjustable field and aperture diaphragms. The plan-achromatic optical system offers sharp, flat-field images with excellent color-correction. With 10X and 16X eyepieces, twelve magnification settings are provided: six metallurgical (50X, 80X, 100X, 160X, 500X & 800X), and six bright-field (40X, 64X, 100X, 160X, 400X & 640X). The Siedentopf head with dual diopters and high-eyepoint eyepieces provides a comfortable and adjustable viewing platform. There is also a dedicated photo port for simultaneous viewing and imaging.

The digital camera captures still images and video, and allows you to view a live stream on your PC. With software available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, it's 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. Independent preview and capture resolutions allow you to view high-speed video while capturing high-definition images. For Mac and Linux, there is a lite version with limited processing features.
