  • Software Calibration: If you plan to make measurements using the software you will need to calibrate the microscope. Calibrating your software with the microscope requires use of a stage micrometer. When ordering please select this option if you do not already have a stage micrometer. There are two stage micrometers recommended:
  • Stereo microscope stage micrometer is a dual ruler with 1" equally spaced and numbered 0-10 as well as 25mm equally spaced and numbered 0-25. If NIST certification is selected 10 points on each scale will be certified. Please note that NIST certification takes approximately 2 weeks.
  • Compound microscope stage micrometer is 1mm / 100 divisions. If NIST certification is selected 10 points will be certified. Please note that NIST certification takes approximately 2 weeks.


Computer Requirements

  • Windows 7, 8, 10 (32&64bit), Mac OSX (NOTE: measurement feature will not work on a MAC), Linux (Kernel 2 or above)
  • CPU: Intel Core2, 2.8GHz or Higher
  • USB Port 2.0 or higher
  • RAM: 2 GB or more
