The AmScope SM-1TZ2-PL-9M digital professional trinocular stereo zoom microscope has interchangeable pairs of 10x and 20x super-widefield high-eyepoint eyepieces, a 0.7x-4.5x zoom objective, two Barlow lenses, and a pillar stand. The microscope has an overall magnification range of 3.5x-180x. The 9MP 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 pc or projector. The trinocular viewing head has an interpupillary range of 55 to 75mm, a 45-degree inclination to scale back eye and neck strain, and 360-degree rotation to enable sharing. The vertical trinocular port can be utilized as a C-Mount or 23mm photo port. The WH10x20mm and WH20x10mm super-widefield high-eyepoint eyepieces combine with the 0.7x-4.5x zoom objective to supply 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 may be added to the objective to increase the magnification range. A Barlow lens with a magnification of not up to 1.0 reduces magnification and increases the working distance, even as 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 incorporates individual eye-strength differences. A digital stereo microscope, often referred to as an inspection or dissection microscope, has low magnification and a long working distance that enables users to control the object being inspected, and is used where image capture, detailed records, or documentation is required.
The 9MP digital camera has a CMOS color sensor for displaying still microscopy images and streaming live videos to a pc or projector. The camera has 40x magnification and a 0.5x reduction lens that ensures that the display has a identical field of view as the microscope eyepiece. The camera may also 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) illumination that transmits remove darkness from throughout the specimen for enhanced visibility of translucent and transparent objects. The upper light has a rheostat-controlled 30-bulb LED light to keep watch over light intensity. The lower LED reflecting plate has a 3-3/4″ (95mm) diameter, and a separate rheostat to customize light intensity from both directions concurrently. The microscope has a pillar-style table stand.

Microscopes are instruments used to support 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, slightly than having a look through a lens. Microscopes will have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces, with varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers back to the size of an image. Resolution, sometimes called resolvant power, refers back to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can keep watch over magnification through a fixed center of attention, or through a range of adjustments. They are able to also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to lend a hand keep watch over viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely utilized in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry, manufacturing, and within 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.
