USB Microscope

What is in the equipment kit, how to borrow, and using the MicroCapture application.

The Kit

Located in the Tech Table, the USB Microscope kit is available for checkout at the Service Center Desk.

The USB Microscope is attached directly to your computer, and can magnify up to x400. Viewable through the computer's camera function or through the MicroCapture Software. While using the MicroCapture Software, you can take photos or videos, measure distance and insert text.

We recommend playing around with the microscope and the MicroCapture software to familiarize yourself. There are unfortunately no user manuals for this microscope model.
