The AmScope ZM-1TW3-FOD-5M digital professional trinocular stereo zoom microscope has interchangeable pairs of 10x and 25x extreme-widefield high-eyepoint eyepieces, a 0.67x-4.5x zoom objective, two Barlow lenses, and a pillar stand. The 5MP 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 microscope has an overall magnification range of 2x-225x. 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 utilized as a C-Mount or 23mm photo port. The EW10x22mm and EW25x9mm extreme-widefield high-eyepoint eyepieces combine with the 0.67x-4.5x zoom objective to offer zoom magnification and a longer working distance for inspecting large-scale specimens that require handling or repair. The microscope comes with 0.3x and 2.0x Barlow lenses that may be added to the objective to increase the magnification range. A Barlow lens with a magnification of lower than 1.0 reduces magnification and increases the working distance, whilst 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 comprises 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 5MP 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 will 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, 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 dual-gooseneck fiber-optic light has two adjustable lights on a 150W/21V cool-light halogen light source for observing temperature-sensitive specimens. Every 22″ light will also be situated independently, and a rheostat controls the amount of light emanating from the lamp. Power and adjustment controls are situated on a keep an eye on box to speed adjustments. The light source has a forced-air cooling system to prevent overheating, and a built-in filter slot can be utilized to change the light color (filters sold one by one). The top-mounted door eases get entry to to the bulb, and robotically 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 center of attention eases use for left- and right-handed users. The additional-large table stand has a reversible black and white stage plate that provides contrast with light and dark-colored specimens, and stage clips to protected the specimen in place. 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 reinforce 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, somewhat than taking a look through a lens. Microscopes may 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 an eye on magnification through a fixed center of attention, or through a range of adjustments. They may be able to also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to lend a hand keep an eye on viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used 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.
