Being a trinocular compound microscope, it comes with an optical system
that allows for simultaneous viewing of the images through the eyepieces
(binocular set) as well as a trinocular port. The microscope also comes with six
levels of magnifications, standard objectives as well as a number of other
important features aimed at ensuring great user experience.
the main features include:
WF10X/18 and WF25X
Achromatic DIN objectives
double layer stage
viewing head of the OMAX 40X-2500X Darkfield-Trinocular-Microscope is inclined
at a 45 degree angle and can be turned 360 degrees. This allows the user to sitt
comfortably and observe the specimen without straining or having to turn the
microscope every now and then so is ergonomical. As such, it helps prevent back problems.
comes with a sliding head, which allows the user to easily adjust the
interpupillary distance (55mm ~ 75mm or 2-3/16inch ~ 2-15/16inch) and thus accommodates
all users. The sliding head is an easy feature to use given that it simply
involves pulling the eyepiece apart or towards each other to the right
distance. For this microscope, both eyepiece tubes also have in place a diopter,
which helps adjust different eye visions and thus for different users. Therefore,
this feature ensures that any user, regardless of their eye sight gets to view
a clear image of the specimen.
widefield eyepieces (WF10X/18 and WF25X) in place present an advantage in that
they make it easier for the user to position his or her eye. With wide field
eyepieces, it also becomes easier for younger kids to look in to the wide field
lens and get to clearly observe what has been brought into focus. With wide
field eyepieces, users also get to view a wider field of view, which means that
one does not necessarily have to keep manipulating/moving the slide.
microscope comes with interchangeable eyepieces - When changing them, it is
important to do so quickly in order to prevent dust accumulation.
important aspect of the viewing head for this microscope is the optical system.
Apart from the binocular eyepiece set, the microscope also comes with an
adjustable trinocular port that accommodates the camera. The camera is not
fixed in place, which means that it can be easily removed and even interchanged
when need be.
microscope comes with a true color 3488x2616 pixels (9M pixels) camera designed
to capture still images as well as stream live videos on the PC. The camera
comes with a 0.5 reduction lens for a larger field of view as well as a user
friendly software that is compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10, Mac OS and
Linux operating system. The sophisticated software allows for such functions as
editing, processing as well as measurement. This makes it easier to share the
microscope in an interactive way while at the same time enhancing
documentation. Some of the other
aspects of the 9.0MP include:
Mm calibration slide:
Frame rate: 1.9fps at
3488x2616, 8fps at 1744x1308, 27fps at 872x654
0.5X reduction lens
Adapters fit 30mm and
30.5mm eyepiece tubes
Aptina 1/2.4inch color CMOS
Dynamic Range 65.2dB
microscope comes with achromatic DIN (4X, 10X, 40X (S), 100X (S, Essential
oil)) objectives. These are standard achromatic objectives where the 40x and
100x are spring loaded for their protection when they come in contact with such
hard surfaces as the glass slide. Together with the eyepieces, these objectives
offer six levels of magnification (40X-100X-250X-400X-1000X-2500X) for viewing
a wide range of specimen.
microscope comes with a mechanical stain-resistant double layer stage (size:
5-1/2" x 5-1/2" (140mm x 140mm), translation range: 3" x 2"
(75mm x 50mm). Apart from the fact that it is stain resistant, the stage
provides a great advantage in that it is easy to maneuver, making it easier to move the specimen without necessarily touching the slide.
40X-2500X Brighter Darkfield LED Trinocular Compound Microscope offers both the
brightfield and darkfield systems. Whereas the brightfield system is the most
conventional technique, darkfield microscopy allows the user to observe the
specimen as a bright object on a dark background.
The microscope comes with all
the necessary accessories to allow users to switch to the technique they intend
to use depending on the specimen. For instance, the device comes with a
condenser with a filter holder that allows the microscope to be easily
converted into a darkfield microscope. Here, a patch stop filter has to be
placed into the filter holder. Because the specimen reflects light from the
microscope in to the objective, the specimen will appear bright.
two systems, this microscope can be used to observe a wide range of specimen
from bacteria to yeast and insects. The darkfield is particularly used for
observing the external details of specimen, which makes it an important device
in both the laboratory and among hobbyists and students.
OMAX 40X-2500X Brighter Darkfield LED Pros and Cons
lenses of this microscope are made of high quality optical glass for clear
image resolution in the field of view is crystal clear and makes it a great
microscope for professionals
both darkfield & brightfield microscope systems, which increases
with a trinocular head for camera attachment which makes it the ideal
microscope for teaching, demonstration, and clinical examination as well as for
friendly software ensures that the user does not face difficulties using the
who may wish to switch to a better camera (e.g. 14MP) it is not possible
to easily upgrade the pre-packaged microscope set
The OMAX 40X-2500X Brighter Darkfield LED Trinocular Compound Microscope is an excellent
device that is not only suitable for professionals, but also for hobbyists and
young students. This is particularly due to the fact that it offers two
microscopy systems (brightfield and darkfield) which means that it can be used
to observe a wide range of specimen.
It comes with excellent features such as the user friendly software, high quality camera as well as excellent lenses for very clear images. This makes it a great tool that will definitely satisfy the needs of many users.
