Manufacturer Description

The AmScope M60C-ABS-PS100-WM monocular compound microscope has 10x widefield and 20x widefield eyepieces, a forward-facing nosepiece with three DIN achromatic objectives, Brightfield mirror illumination, a 0.65 NA single-lens condenser, and a plain stage. The forward-facing revolving nosepiece has 4x, 10x, and 40x DIN achromatic objectives that provide color correction of magnified images. The monocular viewing head holds the WF10x or WF20x eyepiece on a fixed upright inclination. A compound microscope is used for inspection and dissection of specimens when two-dimensional images are desired.

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. A mirror directs light onto the specimen without the need for power or batteries. The 0.65 NA single-lens condenser and disc diaphragm control the amount of light illuminating the specimen. The plain stage has an opening for light transmission and stage clips to secure the slide or specimen in place while viewing. A stage stop prevents the stage or specimen from coming into contact with the objectives. The solid-metal frame has a stain-resistant enamel finish for durability, and a hard-sided plastic case protects the microscope during storage or transport. The microscope comes with a set of 100 prepared slides of a variety of plants, minerals, and animals; and the World of the Microscope book.

Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. 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.

United Scope manufactures microscopy equipment and accessories under the brand name AmScope. The company, founded in 1996, is headquartered in Irvine, CA.
