OMAX 40X-2000X Digital Lab LED Binocular Compound Microscope 

** Built-in 1.3MP USB Camera and Double Layer Mechanical Stage **

The OMAX 40X-2000X Digital Lab LED Microscope with a built-in 1.3 mp digital camera and advanced software. The 40x to 2000x magnification (40X-80X-100X-200X-400X-800X-1000X-2000X), means that the user gets four objectives, which include 4x, 10x, 40x, and 100x oil immersion in addition to two sets of eyepieces (10x , and 20x for additional enlargement of your image). Great for any lab, professional or amateur.

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.
