Digital Microscopy in Harsh Conditions

The portability of Dino-Lite microscopes make them very convenient to take into areas where a traditional microscope can’t go. By necessity, some applications might expose the Dino-Lite to dangerous conditions. Dino-Lite microscopes are durable, and can function well under fairly harsh conditions. Even still, it can help to know what can cause problems, and how…

Dino-Lite Enables You to Do More Dino-Lite has been a trusted imaging solution for professional inspection for over a decade by improving and innovating inspection processes for companies and users worldwide. Several institutions have gone beyond Dino-Lite’s official accessories and software and integrated Dino-Lite digital microscopes into their own systems.  Dino-Lite offers a software development…

Examining Blood Cells with Dino-Lite Microscopes

Users with existing traditional microscopes can use DinoEye eyepiece cameras to observe and capture images of what is seen through the eyepiece. Dino-Lite handheld models can also view slides, either through handheld use or with a stand at high magnifications., Oobservation and image capture is easily performed with the included software which allows additional features…

Inspection of Cannabis with Digital Microscopes

Dino-Lite microscopes are used in a variety of cannabis industry applications such as dispensaries, growing, laboratories, and more. Used for displaying product in style, searching for contaminates, spot-checking plants for trichome color, or examining crops up close for any microscopic pests. Dino-Lite microscopes provide solutions whether at a computer or out in the field with…

Digital Microscopy Changes The Diagnostic Game In Developing Nations

The microscope has been one of the most important medical tools since its invention in the 16th century; by allowing scientists to visibly see bacteria and any damage that may have occurred, diagnosing ailments — from infection to disease — was exponentially easier. Since a clear diagnosis is crucial to treatment, and therefore recovery, microscopes…

How Microscope Cameras Can Improve Your PCB Inspection

Since 1590, the microscope has been used to examine items with immense detail at a close range. In today’s world, microscopes have countless applications across a variety of industries. They’re often used in the medical and scientific fields, of course, but they’re even utilized in everything from art identification to technological inspection. In today’s post,…

The Advantages Of Using A Digital Microscope

Microscope technology has rapidly advanced since the Italian scientist Francesco Stelluti made the first recorded microscopic observations of a bee in 1625. While seeing the microscopic details of this bee may have been the big news of 1625, today’s microscopes can magnify much smaller objects. Digital microscopes take the technology even further with microscope cameras…

Techniques for Macro to Micro Digital Photography

Looking at a specimen can sometimes require multiple magnification levels, and sometimes even multiple cameras. Whether you are looking at your sample for inspection, cataloging, or for fun, consider looking at your sample in different ways! Experiment with different angles and lighting. With a digital microscope, you can also experiment with different magnification levels.

About Working Distance

Selecting the right microscope can have a lot to do with how close or far the scope can be from your viewing subject. Working Distance: The linear distance between the end of the microscope nozzle and the subject Microscopes focus at a set corresponding magnification per specific working distance.

Feature Highlight: EDOF

EDOF: Extended Depth Of Field Microscopes and cameras are used for almost any kind of application, and almost every application can encounter depth-of-field issues. Some USB digital Dino-Lite microscope models with Extended Depth of Field – shortened to EDOF – help users look at the “big picture” at higher magnification levels with minimal blurriness.
