Biological Microscopes

Biological microscopes are used in schools, hospitals, laboratories, and for hobby. Digital biological microscopes have a camera built in to the microscope. Most digital microscopes connect directly through the USB port to the computer and will allow you to view a live image on the computer screen. You can then capture and save both still images and motion video. These images were captured with the National Optical DC5-163 digital biological microscope.
