Mr. Foroughi, why is it important not to lose touch with ergonomics in microscopy?
Quite easily: only those who are relaxed make no mistakes. The typical field of application for the DVM6 microscope is usually quality control, for example in the automotive or electronics industry. Sometimes dozens of samples pass over the table for inspection every day. Each must be carefully checked and compared with printed reference images. With a conventional eyepiece microscope, the eye has to refocus again and again: first looking through the eyepiece at the sample, then looking at the printouts next to the microscope. No one can endure this constant change for a long time without losing concentration.
Obviously, the monitor is the best user interface when inspecting large quantities. What else does the DVM6 microscope have to offer in terms of ergonomics?
Quite a lot. For example the one-hand operation. During operation, lenses can be changed with only one hand and the intelligent manual/motorized hybrid drive for sample stage and focus adjustment provides additional comfort for more ease-of-use.
Concerning objectives: during inspection, different magnification factors are usually required, from a general overview to the control of the finest details. Many laboratories use different microscopes for this purpose, can the DVM6 also make a difference here?
The magnification range of the DVM6 microscope is designed so that both macroscopic and microscopic inspection can be performed. The change takes place in a matter of seconds. This range is made possible by the 16:1 zoom factor. In combination with the appropriate objective lens selection, magnification values from 12x up to 2,350x are possible. I shouldn’t forget that the autofocus, with the option of continuous tracking, also eliminates the need for manual focusing.
This microscope obviously saves a lot of time. And because it is a digital system, the question of software connection naturally arises.
