Popular: WF4115ZT with RK-06A
Professional: AM73915MZT with RK-10A

For greenhouses, the Wireless WF4115ZT is a popular portable option as it can connect to a phone or tablet wirelessly. Growers use the Dino-Lite to check for pests, look at trichomes to determine when is the best time to harvest, counting trichomes, monitoring plant growth, health, and progress, checking plants for contaminants, inspecting soil samples, seeds, bud, insect growth, and hatching, and detecting and identifying pests to find the correct beneficial insects to deal with them as predator insects are a natural response to pests.

The Dino-Lite is an excellent tool for looking at microbes on plants, checking for mold to help meet regulation standards, saving crops, producing the best product possible, and performing oil extractions, tests, and other studies. High magnification models such as the AM73515MT8A can achieve a magnification range of 700x-900x and also offer coaxial (darkfield/brightfield) lighting.

Dispensaries use Dino-Lite microscope cameras for displaying products to customers on the shop floor and ensuring quality. The AM73915MZT is a great choice for capturing marketing images because it offers higher resolution and EDOF (Enhanced Depth of Field) automatic image focus stacking which is important to accommodate for the varying depth and shape of cannabis flowers. Dispensary display designers use iPads with wireless units such as WF4915ZT or HDMI units such as AM5218MZT with big screen TV monitor displays.
