Check out a brief comparison of the Discovery microscope series »
The Discovery Atto Polar digital microscope is a biological light microscope with a 5 Mpx digital camera. It can be used to visualize the microbial world as well as save specimen images in picture or video format. The microscope comes with magnification levels of 40x to 1000x enabling detailed study regardless of transparency level, even when conducting experiments with immersion oil. A knowledge book about the microbial world is included in the kit.
Achromatic optics, magnification levels of 40x to 1000x
The monocular head can be rotated 360° on the horizontal plane. The head’s 45° incline ensures comfort even during long observations. The optical system includes a wide-field 10x eyepiece with a center field pointer and four achromatic objectives with magnification settings of 4x, 10x, 40x and 100x. The 40x and 100x objective lenses are spring-loaded for additional protection. The device comes with both coarse and fine focusing.
Dual LED illumination
The microscope stage is complete with a mechanical stage for optimal use of micro preparation techniques. The illumination system consists of two LED illumination and variable intensity. The upper illumination above and lower illumination below. Both illuminations can be battery (not included) or AC powered (AC adapter in kit). The microscope comes with an Abbe condenser with iris diaphragm and a filter holder.
A 5Mpx digital camera for pictures and video recordings
The 5 Mpx camera gives this module an edge over its competitors. The camera can be installed in the ocular tube in place of the eyepiece and connected to a computer via USB cable. Software installation is required using the provided CD. The camera is capable of loading images onto a computer screen in 2592x1944 resolution as well as taking pictures and recording videos. Basic image processing function is available for both pictures and videos.
The book, “The Invisible World”, is included in the kit
The book, “The Invisible World”, enables fast learning of operating microscopes and navigating the diverse microbial world. This knowledge book is written with easy to understand language, vivid illustrations, and tells about theories as well as prepares students to apply knowledge in practice. Simple scientific experiments can be conducted in a home setting with the help of this scholastic.
