OMAX 40X-2000X Digital Lab LED
Binocular Compound Microscope
** Built-in 1.3MP USB Camera and Double Layer Mechanical Stage **
One of the most impressive features
of this microscope set is the double layer mechanical stage. Unlike a number of
other microscopes that require moving the slide by hand, the Omax digital
microscope has in place a well built, fluid 3D mechanical stage that allows
high precision while moving the slide.
With the smooth and precise knobs to
control the slide position, centering and scanning becomes a breeze.
The Omax digital microscope
also uses LED light, which is extremely bright and clear. As such, it proves
superior to other similar halogen units, which tend to discolor the sample.
This also makes it more ideal for live samples given that the LED light does
not emit as much heat as the average 20w halogen bulb. This advantage also
makes it ideal for:
- Motility checks,
- Smears for parasite check
- Live blood (using brightfield)
The other outstanding
feature of the Omax digital microscope is the camera, which is truly digital.
As such, it has in place a USB port built on to the back of the head of the
microscope, which simply allows the user to plug it in and install the software
on to the computer being used (Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Windows 7).
This makes it
very convenient given that it is easy to set up and use.
With the 1280x1024 pixels
USB digital imaging system, users will be well able to:
- Capture still images
- Live record on computer
- Make measurements
In place is also a stage
upward lock that protects both the objectives and the slides from damage during
use. This will particularly come in handy for younger and new users, who may
not be experienced with focusing. On the other hand, the Omax digital
microscope has a sliding interpupillary distance, which allows for adjustment
to meet individual needs of the user.
Some of the other features
of the microscope include:
- NA1.25 Abbe condenser
- Coaxial course and fine focus knobs
- A revolving quadruple nosepiece
- Rack and pinion adjustment condenser
- High quality professional optical glass elements
The OMAX 40X-2000X Digital Lab LED Microscope is a high quality, user friendly microscope that will meet the needs of both students and professionals. Apart from the fact that it achieves clear images 1000x magnification with the 100x objective, it displays the images being viewed in real time once plugged in to the computer, which is evidence of its high quality.
Although it does not come with a manual, it comes with a disk
that contains the software and drivers, which can be easily installed, making
it convenient for any user. The only problem with the microscope is that
although it also works with the Mac, the quality may not be as good as with
other window computers.
Regardless, it is a high quality microscope
that will meet the needs of all users.
