Get Acquainted With Your Digital Microscope
Posted by smartschoolsystems on January 22nd, 2020
A digital microscope is the latest advent in the field of microscopy. This device comes in very handy when the teacher wants to assess the performance of students. Capturing of images has become simple as well as fast, compared to other conventional methods such as practical experiments. Performance standards are generally chalked out in the education system. Sometimes it becomes difficult to justify and carry them out well. The use of a digital microscope helps solidify the existing performance standards of the school. School microscope
This type is different from all other kinds because this takes away the optics for the human eyes. Simply said, a digital microscope does not have an eyepiece or an ocular. It does not have a part where you can see through the specimen being examined. Instead, it utilizes a charge-coupled device (CCD) camera. The optical image is then seen by projecting it to a monitor.
Matters of Magnification
If you can remember your elementary science, you will recall that the compound microscope uses two optical systems: the eyepiece and the lenses. The working together of both systems provides you with a magnification that's comparable to almost nothing. You get high-powered total magnification from the product of the capabilities of both the eyepiece and lens. As such, you can view a specimen in as high a magnification as 2000X! elementary school microscopes
This scenario is not applicable in the digital microscope. Magnification is dependent on the capability of the monitor - meaning, it is dependent on how much larger the specimen can be reproduced on screen. In essence, the size of the monitor dictates the magnification. On the average, this system includes a 15" monitor. Comparing this to magnification of an optical microscope, this will be at most 60% less. This means that the magnification of an optical microscope will always be larger and better than that of a digital microscope.
When talking about the quality of recorded images, on the other hand, the digital microscope is on the lead. Because it has the capability of directly projecting the image on the CCD camera, then it can do away with the compromises and adjustments needed when the camera is attached to an eyepiece. iPad microscope
Many digital microscope systems are capable of creating a 3D image. This is accomplished through image stacking. Images from the lowest to the highest focal plane in the field of view are taken and are then reconstructed to produce a 3D model.
This type of microscope usually comes in USB models. The trouble with this kind of digital microscope is that they are rarely supplied with a stand to hold the camera in place. As such, it could easily be racked up and down, not giving you or any user a stable view of the specimen or object in question.
