Understanding The History of the Microscope
Unless you work in a lab, you may not realize that you can download an iPhone microscope app. This app can be used to view extremely small objects in extreme detail on your smartphone. While an iPhone microscope app has a wide variety of applications, microscopes have traveled a long way to go from the science lab to our smartphones.Read more “How Microscopes went from Bulky Instruments to Elegant Apps”
Microscopes have been a valuable tool for a long time — in fact, the first compound microscope was invented in the 1590s by Zacharias and Han Jansen. And today’s digital microscopes have evolved over time and offer several great benefits. But how do you choose the right microscope for your needs? Let’s explore a few important factors to keep in mind when looking for a microscope.Read more “3 Factors to Consider When Buying Digital Microscopes”
Our ability to advance is unbelievable when you consider the scope of the human race. Science, in particular, has progressed at an incredibly fast rate; from the discovery of bacteria in 1683 to the remarkable handheld digital microscope cameras we have today, we seem to have no limits.Read more “Microscopes And Telescopes: What Makes Them Different?”
Invented in the 16th century, the very first microscopes were used to study insects, and they were nicknamed ‘flea glasses’. Microscope cameras have come a long way since they were were invented for studying insects. Referred to then as “flea glasses”, industrial microscopes have pulled off some amazing feats in current days. What started out as simple magnification of commonly seen bugs, has turned into an important aspect of many different scientific fields. The most powerful telescope has the ability to make images to a resolution of half the width of a hydrogen atom. We have come a long way from looking at fleas in a field.Read more “Digital Microscopes and the Benefits they Provide”
The invention of the microscope profoundly altered and advanced our understanding of the universe and our place in it. But its history is a bit murky. We know that the first microscope was invented in 1590, but who invented it is unclear. The first patent on record came from Hans Lippershey, but historians note that other evidence suggests the invention was by Hans and Zacharies Janssen. The father and son team of the Janssens made spectacles and lived close to Lippershey.Read more “Handheld Digital Microscopes: A Closer Look”
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 have played a vital role in saving millions of lives.Read more “Digital Microscopy Changes The Diagnostic Game In Developing Nations”
When microscopes were invented, they changed the way people saw the world both around and within them. In a lot of ways, smartphones have done the same thing. Even before iOS and Android microscope apps were developed, the technology changed the way we live our lives.Read more “A Look at Microscopes and Smartphone Cameras”
Scientists estimate that the human body contains anywhere from 75 to 100 trillion cells. Obviously, these cells aren’t visible to the naked eye, and can only be seen through some of the most innovative and high-tech inspection microscopes.Read more “6 Industries That Utilize USB Inspection Microscopes”
The microscope is one of the most important tools for researchers, scientists, students, and more, but this device didn’t just pop out of nowhere. While the technology has advanced to USB microscope cameras and handheld digital microscopes today, the most basic iteration of the microscope came with the invention of glass. By knowing the origins of the microscope, you can better understand the importance of it today.Read more “Zooming In: A Brief History Of The Microscope”
For elementary school students, any opportunity for hands-on learning is valuable. With digital microscopes, students have an exciting new tool with which to explore science, math, and other interdisciplinary concepts. Allow your students to discover the world around them with these creative lesson plans that incorporate digital microscopes.Read more “How Digital Microscopes Can Be Used In The Classroom (Part One)”
Digital microscopes are important tools that represent just how far scientific advances have come. The very first microscopes were invented in the 16th century and used to study insects, gaining the nickname “flea glasses.” Now, we’re far past flea glasses. Thanks to modern microscopes, we can view insects at the atomic level, while microscope USB technology lets scientists easily document images and videos revealed by the microscope lens. This USB technology also makes it easier than ever for scientists to share results quickly with their colleagues — and the world at large. The versatility of handheld microscope USB technology makes these cameras perfect for several different fields of work.

Forensic scientists are tasked with the job of studying material that is left behind. Within the field of forensic science, this can mean studying the evidence of past massacres, epidemics, and current crime scenes. By studying all possible evidence, forensic scientists hope to determine the perpetrators of crimes or causes of situations. In this important work, handheld digital microscopes help forensic scientists gather detailed evidence from the scene itself.Read more “Why Forensic Scientists Need Handheld Digital Microscopes”
Children are naturally curious. In fact, children are capable of understanding science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) subjects before they’re even a year old. But, like other concepts, STEM skills need to be intentionally developed as a child grows.Read more “How Can I Get My Child Interested In STEM?”
