AmScope AmScope ZM-1TZ2-FOR-GT-M Digital Professional Trinocular Stereo Zoom Microscope, EW10x and EW20x Eyepieces, 3.35X-180X Magnification, 0.67X-4.5X Zoom Objective, Fiber-Optic Ring Light, Large Pillar-Style Table Stand with Gliding Table, 110V-120V, Includes 0.5x and 2.0x Barlow Lenses, 1.3MP Camera with Reduction Lens, and Software
The AmScope ZM-1TZ2-FOR-GT-M digital professional trinocular stereo zoom microscope has interchangeable pairs of 10x and 20x extreme-widefield high-eyepoint eyepieces, a 0.67x-4.5x zoom objective, two Barlow lenses, an...d a pillar stand with a gliding table. The 1.3MP 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 microscope has an overall magnification range of 3.35x-180x. 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 EW10x22mm and EW20x12mm extreme-widefield high-eyepoint eyepieces combine with the 0.67x-4.5x zoom objective to provide 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 1.3MP 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 0.37x 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, TIFF, 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 fiber-optic ring light has a 150W/21V cool-light halogen light source for observing temperature-sensitive specimens. The ring light provides shadow-free illumination, and a rheostat controls the amount of light emanating from the lamp. The ring light has a 2-1/8" (56mm) inner diameter, a 3-1/8" (80mm) outer diameter, and a 35" (890mm) metal-sheathed light cable. Power and adjustment controls are located on a control box to speed adjustments. The light source has a forced-air cooling system to prevent overheating, and a built-in filter slot can be used to change the light color (filters sold separately). The top-mounted door eases access to the bulb, and automatically turns off the power supply when opened. The light uses a 110V-120V power supply. The pillar-style stand secures the head for precise focusing. Bilateral coarse focus eases use for left- and right-handed users. The extra-large table stand has a reversible black and white stage plate that provides contrast with light and dark-colored specimens, stage clips to secure the specimen in place, and a gliding table. The gliding table provides precision specimen control on the X- and Y-axes, or in both directions simultaneously. The stage plate has a 3-3/4" diameter (95mm). The steel pillar is 12" (305mm) high and has a 1-1/4" (32mm) diameter. The stage is 3/4 x 10 x 12-1/2 inches/20 x 280 x 320mm (H x W x D, where H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back).

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.
