Question

What resolution is the uScopeMXII?

Answer

The uScopeMXII is wavelength-limited. Image resolution is governed by the wavelength of visible light and depends on the numerical aperture (NA) of the objective and the camera mode: SD (standard definition–960×540) or HD (high definition–1920×1080).

Notes
  • As a rule of thumb, NA × 1,000 is the total magnification possible with any given objective.
  • The formula to convert MPP to DPI is: DPI = (25.4mm ÷ 1 inch) × (1,000µm/mm ÷ MPP)
