Microscope Training Guide

The guide linked above explains general usage info & the many advanced features available on most of our microscopes. New users are encouraged to read this, and also request in-person training by Demis.

Image Analysis Software

Many of our microscopes have cameras and software for image capture. If you know the microscope and objective used for acquiring a photo, you can make calibrated measurements on the photos at your own desktop using the following software:

Nikon

The Nikon scopes have 3rd party cameras that are connected to computers via AM Scope software which allows users to digitally capture images through the microscope and make calibrated measurements.
