Binocular Compound Microscope 1000X - 1.3MP Camera

There are different types of microscopes. Most parasites can be detected with an amplification of 40x. Some smaller protozoa such as Costia, are optimally visible with an amplification of 100x. Moving parasites are more easily discernable because they swim independent of the direction of the water. 400-1000x is necessary for Bacteriological identification.



This binocular compound microscope comes with 1.3M (1280x1024) pixel high quality USB2.0 digital camera. The microscope comes with four magnification settings (40X, 100X, 400X & 1000X), coarse & fine focus, and electrical illumination system. With the built-in reduction lens and compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7 and Mac OS X 10.6 & up, the camera captures microscope images and streams real-time live images on your Computer screen. The included user-friendly software allows you to edit and process microscope images in a similar manner to PhotoShop. You can record live videos, make measurements on the images or save the images in BMP, TIFF, JPG, PICT, PTL or other formats. This microscopy system is an ideal instrument for teaching demonstration and biological, bacteriological & pharmaceutical applications. It is made by the same technicians and on the same production line that makes optical instruments for Leica, Zeiss, Nikon and Olympus. It is brand new in factory sealed box. It arrives brand new in a factory sealed box and retails for more than $1,500.
