The AmScope SM-8TZ-144S-10M 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, and an articulating-arm clamping boom stand. The microscope has an overall magnification range of 3.5x-90x. The 10MP 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 cut 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 super-widefield high-eyepoint eyepieces combine with the 0.7x-4.5x zoom objective to supply 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 may be added to the objective to extend the magnification range. A Barlow lens with a magnification of not up to 1.0 reduces magnification and increases the working distance, at the same time 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 contains 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 govern the object being inspected, and is used where image capture, detailed records, or documentation is required.
The 10MP 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 can 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 removable 144-bulb LED ring light provides bright, cool light for working with temperature-sensitive or live specimens. The ring light provides shadow-free illumination, and a rheostat controls the amount of light emanating from the lamp. Power and adjustment controls are situated at the light head. The ring has a 2.4″ (61mm) inside diameter and a 4″ (100mm) outdoor diameter. It has a 100,000-hour life span and a 110V-240V variable power supply. The pillar-type articulating-arm base has a 40″ reach for covering a big work space. The pillar is 24″ and the holder ring has a 3″ diameter. The stand can also be secured with the clamp to the edge of a desk or table.

Microscopes are instruments used to improve 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, fairly than taking a look through a lens. Microscopes could 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 focal point, or through a range of adjustments. They may be 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.
