The Discovery Nano Polar digital microscope is a monocular biological microscope with a 0.3MP digital camera. It can be used both for classic visual observations and for creating digital research archives. The camera enables you to display the picture on the external screen, take photos, and record videos of research. The kit includes an educational illustrated book about the microbial world.

Achromatic glass optics

The optical system includes a 10-x wide-field eyepiece and three achromatic objectives: 4х, 10х, and 40х. The 40x objective is equipped with the protective spring-loaded frame. The magnification range of microscope is from 40x to 400x. Since the optics are made of glass, the device transmits a high-contrast and clear picture, allowing you to study even the smallest details of the samples.

Dual LED Illumination

The illumination system consists of two LEDs that are placed above and under the stage. The illumination flux from the lower LED can be corrected using the diaphragm disks. The illumination is powered by batteries. The stage features sample holding clips.

0.3MP Digital Camera for Photo and Video Recording

The 0.3MP digital camera can be installed instead of the eyepiece and connected to the computer via a USB cable (included in the kit). It requires software installation to work properly. The software CD is included in the kit. Please check the system requirements listed in the specifications. The camera is powered with the USB cable expanding capabilities of the microscope. The maximum resolution is 640x480 pixels, and video can be recorded at a high frame rate: 30 frames per second. Simple image processing is also available (adjusting brightness, image size, etc.).

“Invisible World” Knowledge Book is included

To make exploration of the microbial world even more interesting, we added the “Invisible World” knowledge book in the kit. It tells all about microscopes, protozoa, microbes, fungi, bacteria, and many other objects and creatures that can be studied with a microscope. The book includes descriptions of fascinating scientific experiments that you can conduct yourself.
