Description

The USB Digital Microscope gives you a live image that is very similar to what you would see with a traditional dissection microscope. This 5 megapixel camera connects to a computer, Chromebook, or LabQuest 2* via USB. It features a 10–150 mm lens with manual focus and an adjustable LED light source. In addition to capturing still images, you can also record short videos and time lapse sequences.

An adjustable stand with manual focus is also included. This allows you to change the plane of view you are looking at on the screen. With a fast response time and high resolution, you can get very clear images that are easy to display, save, and place directly into lab reports. This tool offers a world of possibilities for you and your students to explore.
