AmScope 50X-1000X Inverted Metallurgical Microscope + 10MP Camera
Windows & Mac SO X
The Amscope 50X-1000X Inverted Metallurgical
Microscope is trinocular microscope with a camera attachment that allows the
user to view the sample on a monitor. The microscope comes with a large
mechanical stage, four plan achromatic objectives as well as a 10MP digital
camera and has been designed to produce high quality images.
Amscope Metallurgical Features
Some of the most important features of the
Amscope 50x-1000x Inverted Metallurgical Microscope include:
- 5W LED illumination
- Six plan optical
The Amscope Inverted Metallurgical comes with a trinocular siedentopf head inclined at 45 degrees. While the
microscope head is fixed and cannot be rotated, the siedentopf head presents a significant
advantage to the user in that focus does not change even when the users change
the interpupillary distance.
Here, absolute parfocality is retained because the
eyepiece tubes do not change in length when the user adjusts the interpupillary
distance. This becomes particularly important when many students are using the
microscope simply because the teacher/technician can set the
microscope at the ideal focus allowing all students to view the sample clearly
even if they change the interpupillary distance.
The siedentopf head has also
been set at a 45 degree angle, which offers the user comfort when using the
microscope. When seated and viewing the sample, the user does not have to
In addition to the inclined siedentopf
binocular, the microscope also has in place an extra tube for camera
attachment presenting a great advantage for the user given that they do not
have to remove one of the binocular eyepieces to attach the camera. This also
makes it easier for the user to change the camera when they feel the need to.
As an inverted microscope, the Amscope Metallurgical is different from the conventional microscope in that
it appears to be upside down. Here, the objectives and the microscope turret
are positioned below the stage pointing upwards. This is different from the
other conventional microscopes on which the objectives are located above the
stage pointing downwards towards the stage.
Typically, the sample is
illuminated from above which presents a big advantage with regards to working
distance. However, with the AmScope Inverted Metallurgical Microscope, a strong
3w LED illumination which is compatible with a wide band power supply serves as
the light source for the camera.
from the 3W LED source passes through the stage opening to reach the sample.
From here, light is reflected off the sample and back to the objectives before
reaching the eyepiece.
Because the optics are located below the stage,
the image is not illuminated from above as is the case with a number of other
inverted microscopes. With the Amscope Inverted Metallurgical Microscope this
is a great advantage for the users given that it eliminates the limitations of
height and size.
For microscopes where the sample is illuminated from above,
they can only accommodate samples of given sizes and weight. However, with the
Amscope Inverted Metallurgical Microscope, the user is free to place larger and
heavier samples on the stage above the objectives.
offers greater freedom to view larger samples as well as samples that vary in
size and shape. On the other hand, particularly when capturing still images of
the sample, the microscope allows user to capture still images of many samples
within a short period of time. This becomes easier with the Amscope Metallurgical because the user simply places one sample after
another while capturing still images that can then be studied later.
Optics and Illumination
The Amscope 50x-1000x Inverted Metallurgical Microscope
comes with four plan achromatic objectives positioned under the stage as well
as two pairs of plan widefield eyepieces.
The plan achromatic objectives correct
distortions in addition to providing increased field depth and a larger working
distance. As such, they help produce sharp, clear images that make it easier to
study fine details of the sample.
In combination with the widefield eyepieces,
the objectives offer six levels of magnification from 50x to 1000x (50X, 100X, 200X, 4000X, 500X and
1000X) This makes the microscope a versatile tool given that it can be used to
view and study a wide range of objects from metals to silicon.
Depending on the type of sample, the user simply sets the appropriate objective
under the stage with the freedom to adjust the light to clearly view the
A Strong 3W LED is used to illuminate the
sample. LED illumination presents a number of advantages including:
- Clear white light - LED
illumination produces a crisp clear light across the field of view. As such, it
can be used without filters that are often required in microscopy when using a
halogen light source. LED illumination produces very little
heat, which means that it does not affect the object.
- Comfort - Unlike halogen,
LED illumination does not cause strain to the eye, which makes it more comfortable
- Longevity - LED bulbs
consume very little power and last longer.
Some of the other features of the Amscope
Inverted Metallurgical Microscope include:
- A large mechanical stage
- Focusing tension control
- Full optical glass elements
- Dual side focusing controls
The microscope also comes with a 10MP camera that
allow the microscope to capture high quality still images and live videos. It
also comes with a user friendly software that is compatible with Windows
XP/Vista/7/8, Mac OS X and Linux. The software can be easily installed allowing
the user to edit process and measure the sample.
The camera is easily attached
to the microscope through a USB cable. Once connected, the user can easily
capture images and video in addition to a number of other activities from the
PC using the software.
Amscope Inverted Metallurgical Microscope Pros
While it may be challenging for a first time user, the Amscope Inverted Metallurgical Microscope has a number advantages.
- Sharp, clear images
- High quality objectives
that produce quality images
- A high quality camera that
captures high quality still images and videos
The Amscope 50x-1000x Inverted Metallurgical Microscope
comes with a number of important features that make it a versatile tool used in
metallurgical labs and quality control applications. In addition to being
versatile, one of its biggest advantage is that it produces sharp, clear images
that make it possible for users to accurately study fine details of a wide
variety of objects.
