50X-1000X Darkfield Polarizing Metallurgical Microscope + 9MP

  • Model: ME520T-9M
  • Manufactured by: AmScope


This is an up-right reflected and transmitted polarizing darkfield metallurgical microscopy system. The microscope comes with a quintuple nosepiece, seven infinitive Plan objectives, a built-in polarizer & analyzer, darkfield-viewing device, and both reflected (EPI) & transmitted illuminations. It offers five metallurgical magnification settings (50X, 100X, 200X, 500X & 1000X) and two more levels of transmitted magnification settings (400X & 1000X). It is a great instrument for both metallurgical (reflected) and biological (transmitted) applications. The digital camera captures still images and video, and allows you to view a live stream on your PC. With software available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, it's a multi-platform imaging solution. The included Windows software offers image-development and measurement tools, as well as advanced compositing features such as image-stitching and extended-depth-of-focus. Independent preview and capture resolutions allow you to view high-speed video while capturing high-definition images. For Mac and Linux, there is a lite version with limited processing features. This microscopy system is perfect for metallurgical labs and foundries for silicon wafer inspection, integrated circuit examination, production quality control, and R&D applications. It is an ideal instrument for metallurgical, mineral and crystal identification. It is also a great microscopy system for transmitted illumination applications including those in biological areas.
