Levenhuk D50L NG Digital Microscope
Levenhuk D50L NG Digital Microscope allows you to take on high-quality research as well as take photos/videos of your observations. This model can be connected to a PC. Levenhuk D50L NG uses a USB interface, and software that is included in the kit.
This microscope is designed to provide the best possible color rendition when capturing photo and video images and enables viewing images in the true colors.
Levenhuk D50L NG Digital Microscope was developed for use in schools, colleges and universities. This model features glass optics, unlike the less expensive analogs. The main advantage is two sets of illumination (upper and lower) which allow observing both slices and non-transparent objects (from the tiniest solid particles to coins, etc.).
Apart from observing and image capturing on the PC screen, it is also possible to make observations in the visual mode without a camera, since two eyepieces (WF10x and WF16x) are included in the package.
Levenhuk D50L NG Digital Microscope is widely used as the modern equipment of choice in various educational institutions.
The main advantage of the Levenhuk D50L NG is the highest quality of the optical elements and metallic construction. These materials provide high-quality images and make the microscope long lasting (for at least 30 years).
A USB cable is used as the camera power supply and for connection with a PC. Compatible OS: XP/2003/Vista/7/8/10.
Magnification depends on the objectives (located below) and eyepieces (located above) being used.
The set includes two eyepieces and three objectives as well as Barlow lens which allows to smoothly change the magnification ratio.
The minimum magnification is: Eyepiece 10x * Objective 4x = 40x
Maximum magnification is: Eyepiece 16x * Objective 40x = 640x, and with Barlow lens magnification smoothly reaches 640*2.0 = 1280x!
This microscope is designed with important features – lower illumination with adjustable brightness and removable upper illumination. Built-in illumination is LED, which ensures the minimal power consumption yet gives ample light.
Illumination systems are located above and below the stage, and allow observing both transparent and opaque objects: from the tiny solid particles to coins, paper, fabrics, etc. (It would be fascinating to observe a mobile phone screen under the D50L NG – actually, each pixel consists of three segments, red, green and blue.)

Observing non-transparent objects
Levenhuk D50L NG Digital Microscope, unlike other teaching microscopes, is equipped with two illuminations. Illumination systems are located above and below the stage, and allow observing both transparent and opaque objects.
The microscope features an AC adapter, for stationary observations without batteries.
Caution: Please refer to the specifications table for the correct mains voltage and never attempt to plug a 110V device into 220V outlet and vice versa without using a converter. Remember that mains voltage in the U.S. and Canada is 110V and 220–240V in most European countries.

Levenhuk D50L NG Digital Microscope is also compatible with Levenhuk digital cameras (additional cameras are purchased separately). Levenhuk cameras are installed in the eyepiece tube instead of an eyepiece.
