Did you know you can now use our digital microscopes and cameras with LabQuest 2? Our USB Digital Microscope and the Celestron Digital Microscope Imager, a drop-in digital microscope camera, work with computers or Chromebooks. They have been very popular with biology teachers. We know that many schools can’t have a computer at every microscope station, so we have added the ability to capture images from these cameras on LabQuest 2.
Starting with LabQuest App version 2.6, you are able to view and save images from both of these products. Simply connect the camera’s USB cable to LabQuest 2 and launch the Camera App. You can get very clear images that are easy to see and save. With the addition of LabQuest Viewer computer software, you can project the image for the entire class to see or monitor what your students are seeing at each lab station without leaving your desk. LabQuest Viewer for iPad is also available on the App Store.
We know that many biology teachers use images from microscopes and dissecting scopes in their teaching, and we hope this new feature in LabQuest 2 makes it even easier!
