Product Description & Reviews
The National Optical DC-128 Digital Compound Monocular Microscope has a 10x widefield eyepiece with pointer, a forward-facing nosepiece with four DIN achromatic objectives that are parcentered and parfocal, LED illumination, separate coarse and fine focus, 1.25 NA Abbe condenser with iris diaphragm, and a mechanical stage. The 0.4MP camera has a CMOS color sensor, image capture and editing software, and USB 2.0 output to capture or display still or video images on a computer or projector. The monocular viewing head has a fixed inclination to reduce eye and neck strain. An eyepiece pointer is used to identify features for students. A forward-facing nosepiece eases changing objectives. Rotation positions with secure, positive stops ensure accurate positioning and support a range of magnification options. Achromatic objectives provide color correction of magnified images. Parcentered and parfocal objectives ensure that the image stays centered and focused when the magnification is changed. The 40xR and 100xR objectives are retractable and spring loaded to prevent damage to the slide or objective when focusing. The 100xR objective is also an oil objective that provides increased resolution over a standard objective. A digital compound microscope is used for inspection and dissection of specimens when two-dimensional images are desired, and where image capture, detailed records, or documentation is required. The 0.4MP digital camera has a CMOS color sensor for displaying still microscopy images and streaming live videos to a computer or projector. It includes image capture and editing software that provides still image and live video capture and editing capability, including measurement functions. The software supports the Motic SFC file format and is compatible with Windows XP and above, and Mac OS X. The camera has a USB 2.0 data port (cable included). 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 light, resulting in a dark image on a light background. The LED light source provides bright, cool light for working with temperature-sensitive or live specimens, and operates on rechargeable batteries for cordless operation. A rheostat controls the amount of light emanating from the lamp. The 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 locks the slide into place and provides precise slide manipulation along the X- and Y-axis. Separate coarse and fine focus knobs speed focusing. A slip clutch prevents excess pressure from damaging the slides or objectives, a stage stop prevents the stage or specimen from coming into contact with the objectives, and a focus tension control prevents stage drift. The cast metal frame provides durability and has a gray enamel finish.

Types include compound, stereo, or 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 monitor, rather than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces, with varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as resolvant power, refers 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 focus, or through a range of adjustments. They can also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry, manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.National Optical and Scientific Instruments manufactures microscopes and microscope cameras.
