The AmScope UBW500X0200M digital 2MP USB microscope provides 5x-500x magnification and 4x 3D digital zoom, has a USB 2.0 and USB 1.0 compatible output for displaying images and video on a computer, and includes editing software. Its built-in light source has eight LEDs to illuminate specimens. The microscope has a CMOS color sensor, and operates on USB power (cable included). The image capture and editing software provides still image and live video capture and editing capability, including measurement functions. The software is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8, allowing exporting of data to MS Word, Excel, and Outlook. It is also compatible with Mac OS for live view and image capture only. The included table stand has a ball joint that allows 360-degree adjustment of the microscope angle and has a rotatable objective plate for positioning specimens. A digital USB microscope is used in educational, medical, and industrial inspection applications where image capture, detailed records, or documentation is required.

Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. Types include compound, stereo, or digital. Compound microscopes use a compound optical system with an objective lens and an eyepiece. Stereo microscopes show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitor, rather than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces, with varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as resolvant power, refers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focus, or through a range of adjustments. They can also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry, manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.
United Scope manufactures microscopy equipment and accessories under the brand name AmScope. The company, founded in 1996, is headquartered in Irvine, CA.
