The T-19542CP Comprehensive 2 Digital Monocular Microscope from Ken-a-Vision is a four-objective monocular microscope designed for middle school and high school students. The integrated digital camera features a 5 megapixel CMOS sensor and is capable of HD video output. The included Applied Vision 4 imaging software is compatible with Mac and Windows operating systems and allows users to capture photos, record videos, and even annotate images using a range of analytical tools.
The Comprehensive 2 digital microscope is designed to deliver plug-and-play performance with most computing platforms as well as interactive white boards. The full potential of this digital microscope is revealed by the Applied Vision 4 software. This software program was designed for educators and researchers, and provides tools for capturing images of the specimen as well as overlaying text, measurements, arrows and other icons. In addition, Applied Vision 4 supports multiple cameras simultaneously, image comparison, digital zoom, and time-lapse specimen recording.
This model of the Comprehensive 2 microscope is configured with a 360° rotating head and PLAN achromat objectives that minimize image distortions and provide enhanced contrast. The included 100xS objective can be oil-immersed for improved light transmission, making this compound microscope easy to use yet feature-rich enough to employ advanced microscopy techniques. A Vernier-scaled mechanical stage uses a substage LED illuminator with rheostat dimmer and an Abbe condenser lens with iris diaphragm to customize the amount of light transmitted to the specimen.
The energy-efficient LED light source operates at a cool temperature and prolongs the life of the Comprehensive 2 digital microscope's built-in rechargeable battery. On a full-charge, this microscope can provide up to 40 hours of continuous operation before needing to be charged. In addition to the low position coaxial focus controls that deliver coarse and fine focus adjustments, the T-19542CP also includes tension adjustment and rack stop that prevent accidental damage to the specimen and objective. The Comprehensive 2 series microscope was built for reliable performance in the lab or classroom, and is backed by the manufacturer's ten-year warranty.
