I happen to be watching an episode of the crime drama “Criminal Minds” the other night and noticed their lab tech was using a Celeston Handheld Digital Microscope to examine some blood samples. One of the things I love about my job is noticing all of the different laboratory products that are used on crime and medical shows that we sell, though I think it drives my wife crazy.
The Celestron 44302 is an extremely well priced microscope with great performance. Features include:
- Handheld Digital Microscope Powered by a 2.0 USB Cable
- Digital Camera – built-in 2MP for Snapshot Images and Videos
- Power – 10x to 40x and 150x
- LED Illumination
- CD-ROM – Software for Basic Image Capture and Organization as well as Simple Measurement Function (on Windows based operating systems)
- Computer Requirements – UVC Plug and Play with Windows 7, Vista, and XP and most MAC 10.4.9 and later, CD/DVD Drive and open USB Port
This is a great microscope for teen as well as adults and is excellent for education, work or just fun. It’s great for viewing specimens or objects on a computer screen an allows you to take snapshots or short videos. It comes with a sturdy metal stand with multiple positions for viewing for imaging. It’s ideal for examining objects like coins, stamps, rocks, as well as specimen slides at low or high power.
