Digital Microscope – Modus M12Z
Fully automated digital microscope
This innovative fully automated digital microscope offers quality and features never seen before at this price level. “3D topography”, “Super depth of field”, “Auto stitching”, Automatic scanning, and much more. Everything is included in an ultra-compact and affordable digital microscope.
Super Depth of Field
Modus 12Z has the ability to produce “Super depth of field”, by capturing images at different focal planes and intelligently extracting a full focus image from the captured images. The number of images needed for each extended focus capture, can be automatically calculated from the depth of focus at that actual magnification.
Stunning High Resolution Optics
The Modus 12Z, is built around a 12 times Zoom system made in Japan. As it is a mono system, the optics can be made much smaller, more economical and more compact, compared to a similar stereo zoom system. The optical quality is comparable or even better than the best stereo microscopes. Modus 12Z has the ability to produce “Super depth of field”, by capturing images at different focal planes and intelligently extracting a full focus image from the captured images. The number of images needed for each extended focus capture, can be automatically calculated from the depth of focus at that actual magnification. To avoid vibrations during image capture, at high magnifications, the mechanical system and the optics are assembled from extremely solid, yet
very compact components.
Extended Field of View / Auto stitching
By including a motorized XY stage with the Modus 12Z microscope, the field of view can be extended significantly. This is done without involving the user in complicated calculations, the user just moves the specimen in real time with the joystick or keyboard to two opposite corners of the area of interest, then the software does the rest by itself. The resulting image combines the overview
enabled by a large field of view with unmatched microscopic details. The automatic stitching can be combined with extended depth of field, extended image dynamics and auto focus.
With the 3D module in InSight, it is possible to display the topography of the specimen under observation. Height measurements and profiles across any section of the material can be displayed and documented. As dark and saturated parts will make the results less reliable, the Modus 12Z uses the innovative dome light and extended dynamics to achieve reliable results, which cannot be achieved in other similar systems.
Modus 12Z includes a motorized zoom monoscope of the highest mechanical and optical quality. With motorized zoom in combination with motorized focus and XYtable, there is no need for manual interaction with the microscope, which enables the possibility of exploring sensitive specimens, even in an isolated chamber. Measurements will always be precise due to the accurate software controlled positioning of mechanical zoom position. Besides smooth zooming in and out, fixed zooming positions can be defined, as if the microscope had separate objectives.
