AmScope AmScope SM-2TZ-DK-5M Digital Professional Trinocular Stereo Zoom Microscope, WH10x Eyepieces, 3.5X-90X Magnification, 0.7X-4.5X Zoom Objective, Upper and Lower Halogen Lighting, Pillar Stand, 110V-120V, Includes Darkfield Condenser, 0.5X and 2.0X Barlow Lenses, and 5MP Camera with Reduction Lens and Software

The AmScope SM-2TZ-DK-5M digital professional trinocular stereo zoom microscope has a pair of 10x super-widefield high-eyepoint eyepieces, a 0.7x-4.5x zoom objective, two Barlow lenses, a darkfield condenser, and a pil...lar stand. The microscope has an overall magnification range of 3.5x-90x. The 5MP camera has a CMOS color sensor, a reduction lens, image capture and editing software, and USB 2.0 output to capture or display still or video images on a computer or projector. The trinocular viewing head has an interpupillary range of 55 to 75mm, a 45-degree inclination to reduce eye and neck strain, and 360-degree rotation to enable sharing. The vertical trinocular port can be used as a C-Mount or 23mm photo port. The WH10x20mm super-widefield high-eyepoint eyepieces combine with the 0.7x-4.5x zoom objective to provide continuous zoom magnification and a longer working distance for inspecting large-scale specimens that require handling or repair. The microscope comes with 0.5x and 2.0x Barlow lenses that can be added to the objective to increase the magnification range. A Barlow lens with a magnification of less than 1.0 reduces magnification and increases the working distance, while a Barlow lens with a magnification greater than 1.0 increases the magnification and reduces the working distance. High-eyepoint eyepieces ease viewing for users who wear glasses, and dioptric adjustment accommodates individual eye-strength differences. A digital stereo microscope, sometimes called an inspection or dissection microscope, has low magnification and a long working distance that enables users to manipulate the object being inspected, and is used where image capture, detailed records, or documentation is required.

The 5MP digital camera has a CMOS color sensor for displaying still microscopy images and streaming live videos to a computer or projector. The camera has 40x magnification and a 0.5x reduction lens that ensures that the display has a similar field of view as the microscope eyepiece. The camera can be mounted in a C-Mount or any 23mm eye tube. The camera includes image capture and editing software that provides still image and live video capture and editing capability, including measurement functions. The software supports JPG, TIF, GIF, PSD, WMF, and BMP file formats and is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8; Mac OS X; and Linux. Camera drivers are compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8; Mac OS X; and Linux. The software includes Windows APIs for native C/C++, C#, DirectShow, Twain, and LabVIEW that enable custom application development. The camera has a USB 2.0 data port (cable included).

The microscope has upper (episcopic) illumination that reflects light off the specimen for enhanced visibility of opaque specimens, and lower (diascopic) Brightfield/Darkfield (BF/DF) illumination that transmits light up through the specimen for enhanced visibility of translucent and transparent objects. Brightfield (BF) illumination allows the specimen to absorb light, resulting in a dark image on a light background, and Darkfield (DF) illumination reflects light off the specimen, resulting in a light image on a dark background. A frosted stage plate allows light to pass through from below with transparent specimens, a reversible black and white stage plate provides contrast with light- and dark-colored specimens, and stage clips secure the specimen during viewing. The 15W halogen light source provides bright light in a concentrated path. The pillar-style stand has bilateral coarse focus to ease use for left- and right-handed users. All metal construction is durable and the enamel finish is stain-resistant.

Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. Types include compound, stereo, or digital. Compound microscopes use a compound optical system with an objective lens and an eyepiece. Stereo microscopes show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitor, rather than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces, with varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as resolvant power, refers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focus, or through a range of adjustments. They can also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry, manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.

The VanGuard 1100ZL Series Stereo Zoom Microscopes with either a binocular or trinocular head have a 360-degree rotation capabilit...y and a fixed 45-degree vertical inclination to ease eye strain, -5 to +5 dioptric adjustment capabilities to compensate for the difference in viewing ability between each eye, and 55 to 90mm interpupiliary adjustment for individual eye spacing. The models in this series have 20mm 10x super widefield eyepieces, lens objectives of 0.7x to 4.5x, a zoom ratio of 6.5:1, and a working distance of 93 mm. The stage plate is reversible black and white for viewing light or dark samples, and the microscope has two, locked on, stainless steel, spring-loaded stage clips for durability. The units come with either a pole stand (100 mm vertical travel) or boom stand (300 mm vertical travel x 415 mm horizontal travel). They have dual focus adjustment knobs, for controlled focusing. These microscopes have a rack and pinion assembly, a slip clutch mechanism, and a tension control mechanism to protect the gears. The trinocular head model can be connected to a camera for an alternative viewing option. They are stain-resistant and have a durable cast metal body with an enamel finish, and anti-skid rubber feet. These models come with a spare fuse, two eyecups, a dust cover, and instructions. Additional optional eyepieces, lenses, lighting, and camera packages are sold separately.
