SWIFT Optical 40X-1000X Dual Light Glass Lens Metal Frame Student Microscope + USB Camera

Model: SWIFT Optical SW100-EP1  Magnification: 40X-1000X

This is a perfect microscope with a 1280x1024 pixel USB digital camera for students to learn science. There are five magnification settings, 40X, 100X, 250X, 400X and 1000X. It comes with full glass optical elements, metal framework, 30 degree inclined 360 degree rotating monocular head, LED illumination system and a 1280x1024 pixel detachable digital camera. The LED illumination system uses either an outlet (adapter included) or three AA batteries.
The digital camera captures still images and video, and allows you to view a live stream on your PC. The included software for Windows offers image-development and measurement tools, as well as advanced compositing features such as image-stitching and extended-depth-of-focus. Independent preview and capture resolutions allow you to view high-speed video while capturing high-definition images. On Mac computers, the camera can be used as a driverless imaging device, compatible with various applications, such as ProScope and Photo Booth.
It is an ideal microscope for home schooling, for students in elementary to high school, and for hobbyists.
What can you see with it? 
Magnify all kinds of samples with SW100's versatile dual illumination system.
Top inclined illumination:
Solid objective such as insects, onion cross-section, flower petal, human air and more.
Bottom transmitted illumination:
Transparent slide speciments such as animal epidermal cells, paramecia, pumpkin stem and more.

Professional Siedentopf Binocular Head

- Inclined at an ergonomic 30° angle to reduce eye- and neck-strain

- Full 360° rotational capability for shared use and comfortable viewing

- 55-75mm interpupillary distance

- Individually adjustable ocular diopters for precise focusing


DIN Achromatic Objective Lenses


- 4X, 10X, 40X (Spring), and 100X (Spring, Oil) objectives set in a revolving turret

- DIN Achromatic lenses limit color aberration and blurry edges in the field of view

- Spring-loaded to retract in case of contact, protecting the specimen and lens glass


Stage and Condenser


- 125x125mm mechanical stage with 70x30mm X-Y travel range

- Industry-standard NA 1.25 Abbe condenser focuses light on the specimen

- LED bulb provides transmitted illumination, intensity controlled by iris diaphragm


Coaxial Controls


- Fine focusing knob is stacked on top of coarse focusing knob for easy adjustments

- Use the coarse adjustment to bring the specimen into broad focus

- Use the fine adjustment to bring the specimen into sharp focus


Images at different magnifications.For better viewing,you can connect an eyepiece camera(sold separately) to your computer to can capture video and still images


Insect antenna at 100X magnification

At 100x magnification you will be able to see 2mm.


Insect antenna at 400X magnification

At 400x magnification you will be able to see 0.45mm, or 450 microns.


Frog's blood at 400X magnification

Small dark dots in the center of the cells are nuclei.


Frog's blood at 1000X magnification

Nuclei in the center of the cells now clearly visible.

At 1000x magnification you will be able to see 0.180mm, or 180 microns.
