National Optical & Scientific Instrument's DC5-420TH Stereo Zoom Microscope with Built-In Camera includes a built-in CMOS digital camera. Users can use the Motic Images 2.0ML software for live viewing of specimens, or they can capture, label, manipulate, and measure images.
The DC5-420TH can operate independently of the camera as well. The 1-4x objectives provide continuous zooming 10-40x magnification. The binocular widefield 10x eyepieces display upright, unreversed, three-dimensional images that remain in focus throughout the zoom range.
The system's illumination is halogen, with a top incidental light and a bottom transmitted light. A blue filter is also built-in for transmitted light. A 4-position control lets the user operate the top light only, the bottom only, or both at the same time. It can also be used to turn the lights off.
Featuring a sturdy, all-metal frame, the DC5-420TH can stand up to the daily rigors of the lab. Additionally, a number of safety features help to ensure its longevity. The rack and pinion focusing has a slip clutch and tension adjustment to prevent damage to the system. The microscope's post mount allows for up and down adjustment of the viewing head to accommodate different sized objects.
