Motic DS-2


Teacher Designed

This is a true cross-curriculum macroscope and will find frequent use in many classroom situations


When people think about microscopy in schools, they often think about prepared slides, staining and high-powered magnifications. With a normal compound microscope, you can not look at macro objects such as Bugs, Minerals, Cloth, etc. This is where the DS-2 comes in.

The DS-2 is a digital macroscope designed according to a "wish-list" of features drafted by teachers in the US. This microscope can be used in Geography lessons to look at minerals and fossils, in Chemistry lessons to observe and record simple experiments as well as in the more traditional Biology environment. Coupled with a built-in digital camera chip, the DS-2 transmits live streaming images to a computer through a normal USB connection. With the included Motic application software, any image can easily be quantified, measured, edited, recorded and much more.
