AmScope M149C-2L-E Digital Compound Monocular Microscope, WF10x and WF25x Eyepieces, 40x-1000x Magnification, Upper and Lower LED Illumination, Brightfield, Single-Lens Condenser, Plain Stage, 110V or Battery-Powered, Heavy-Duty Metal Frame, Includes 0.3MP Camera and Software
Heavy-duty digital compound microscope and a 0.3MP camera with USB 2.0 output for capturing or displaying images on a computer or projector
Monocular viewing head with 10x widefield and 25x widefield eyepieces, fixed 45-degree vertical inclination to reduce eye and neck strain, and 360-degree rotation capability to provide a more comprehensive view and enable sharing
Forward-facing nosepiece with 4x, 10x, and 40x DIN achromatic full-glass objectives that provide high-resolution color-corrected images
Brightfield, upper and lower LED illumination, and 0.65 NA single-lens condenser with disc diaphragm
Plain stage with stage clips to secure slide and a stage stop to prevent damage to slides or objectives
The AmScope M149C-2L-E digital monocular compound microscope has 10x and 25x widefield eyepieces, a forward-facing nosepiece with three DIN achromatic objectives, LED illumination, a 0.65 NA single-lens condenser, a plain stage, and a heavy-duty metal frame. The 0.3MP camera has a CMOS color sensor, image capture and editing software, and USB 2.0 output to capture or display still or video images on a computer or projector. The forward-facing revolving nosepiece has 4x, 10x, and 40x DIN achromatic full-glass objectives that provide high-resolution color-corrected images. The monocular viewing head has one 10x widefield eyepiece on a fixed 45-degree vertical inclination to reduce eye and neck strain and 360-degree rotation capability to provide a more comprehensive view and enable sharing. A digital compound microscope is used for inspection and dissection of specimens when two-dimensional images are desired, and where image capture, detailed records, or documentation is required.
The 0.3MP digital camera has a CMOS color sensor for displaying still microscopy images and streaming live videos to a computer or projector, and 40x magnification. The camera can be mounted in 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) LED illumination that reflects light off the specimen for enhanced visibility of opaque specimens, and lower (diascopic) LED illumination that transmits light up through the specimen for enhanced visibility of translucent and transparent objects. Lower Brightfield (BF) illumination allows the specimen to absorb light, resulting in a dark image on a light background. LED illumination provides bright, cool light for working with temperature-sensitive or live specimens. The 0.65 NA single-lens condenser and disc diaphragm control the amount of light illuminating the specimen. The plain stage is 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches and has an opening for light transmission and stage clips to secure the slide or specimen in place while viewing. A stage stop prevents the stage or specimen from coming into contact with the objectives. Coaxial coarse focus eases use for young viewers. All mechanical components are constructed of metal for precision and durability, and the heavy-duty solid-metal frame has a stain-resistant enamel finish. The microscope is powered by a 110VAC adapter (included) or three AA batteries (sold separately).

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.
United Scope manufactures microscopy equipment and accessories under the brand name AmScope. The company, founded in 1996, is headquartered in Irvine, CA.
