Convenient handheld models are lightweight, compact, and easy to use for many microphotography applications
(Vocus) March 16, 2010 -- Imagine plugging a microscope into the USB port of your PC or laptop and viewing images with 10x to 200x or even 500x magnification. The latest models of handheld microscopes from Cole-Parmer offer just this portability, convenience, and versatility. The most recent model also contains a polarizer for reducing glare on reflective items, such as metal surfaces.
Each of the Digital USB Microscopes produces crisp, sharp images and accurate color reproduction through the use of Active Pixel Technology. A simple press of the shutter trigger quickly captures the high-resolution magnified image. Six built-in lights with adjustable brightness ensure proper illumination. Software for image and video capture, measurement, brightness and contrast controls, digital zoom, and date-and-time record is included (requires Windows® XP, SP2, or Vista).
Customers working in laboratories, research, and quality control cite functionality, easy set-up, and economical price as significant reasons to recommend the devices. Scientists, engineers, forensics specialists, and technicians may also rely on the handheld microscopes to perform detailed repair, assembly, or inspection.
