MicroscopeMaster's Thoughts 


As in what seems to be true with all AmScope microscopes, the instructions sent with your purchase are minimal at best.  Although, there are downloadable manuals available directly from the AmScope website. 

Several customers receive their microscope and have difficulty running the software on their Mac as it typically runs on Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 operating systems.  However, a solution is to visit http://www.bodelin.com/proscope/software to solve the issues.  Any problems are easily dealt with. 

The price is perfect even without the digital viewing option so should be seen as an added bonus.  The images are crisp up to 40X but any higher and images lose resolution. 


The Amscope 40X-1000X Cordless Student Compound Microscope is a great buy. 

 
MicroscopeMaster Recommendations


It is necessary to purchase slides, cover glasses or even a prepared microscope slide kit with your AmScope student microscope as these are not included.
