Digital Microscopy

Digital microscopes are microscopes that are designed to be used without eyepieces. As opposed to classic microscopes, the eyepieces are replaced with a camera and a monitor. This approach to microscopy has the advantage that it is inherently ergonomic, because it allows users maximum freedom for positioning the viewing screen and enables them to view samples in an upright, relaxed posture.

Digital microscopes are used in a vast number of applications, ranging from simple inspection or observation of a sample, to documentation, and even high-end applications where 2D and 3D measurements are necessary. They have found a place in nearly every trade ranging from the inspection of printed circuit boards in industrial applications and forensics, to specimens in life science applications.
