The microscope has lower (diascopic) Brightfield illumination that transmits light up through the specimen for enhanced visibility of translucent and transparent objects. Brightfield (BF) illumination allows the specimen to absorb lightresulting in a dark image on a light background. Tungsten (incandescent) illumination provides bright lightand a rheostat controls the amount of light emanating from the lamp. The 1.25 NA Abbe condenser can be adjusted to control the distance of the light from the stage and has an iris diaphragm to optimize the amount of light illuminating the specimen. The condenser is controlled using a spiral mechanism. The mechanical stage has 1mm stage divisionslocks the slide into placeand provides precise slide manipulation along the X- and Y-axis to allow coordinates to be recordedenabling the viewer to return to a specific location on the slide. It has a traveling range of 2-3/4 x 3/4 inchesand is 5 x 4-1/2 inches (125 x 115mm) (W x D; where W is widththe horizontal distance from left to right; D is depththe horizontal distance from front to back). Nested coaxial coarse and fine focus eases focusing for left- and right-handed viewersand a rack-and-pinion mechanism provides precise and secure focusing. Focus tension control prevents stage drift. The metal frame has a stain-resistant enamel finish for durability and to ease cleaning.Specifications

Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. Types include compoundstereoor digital. Compound microscopes use a compound optical system with an objective lens and an eyepiece. Stereo microscopes show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitorrather than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one)binocular (two)or trinocular (three) eyepieceswith varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolutionalso known as resolvant powerrefers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV)numerical aperture (NA)and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focusor through a range of adjustments. They can also utilize LEDfluorescentand mirror light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in educationlab researchbiologymetallurgyengineeringchemistrymanufacturingand in the medicalforensic scienceand veterinary industries.
United Scope manufactures microscopy equipment and accessories under the brand name AmScope. The companyfounded in 1996is headquartered in IrvineCA.
