With proper auxiliary illumination, the QX3 computer microscope will produce acceptable digital images that will have a wide variety of applications. It is very easy to take snapshots of the image in the main viewing screen, or make movies and take timelapse photomicrographs in intervals of 1 sec to 1 hour. The accompanying software package provides an interface that is very nicely done with excellent graphics and audio clips that are presented through a kid-friendly layout. QX3 Microscope Body The Intel QX3 Computer Microscope body contains the digital imaging electronics, the objectives, an incandescent tungsten reflected light illuminaton source, and provides power to the stand for transmitted light illumination.

The Intel QX3 Computer Microscope contains no eyepieces, and images must be viewed through the accompanying software on the host computer that controls the microscope.

Published in the December edition of Micscape Magazine.


Before the introduction of this remarkable microscope, students were forced to peer into eyepieces with very narrow viewfields to visualize poorly illuminated specimens through optical systems capable of producing only blurred images. Using a solid surface to stabilize the body is necessary for capturing single frame digital images that are not blurred or out of focus due to movement of the body while acquiring the image.
