Great for kids, hobbyists, and professionals, the Plugable 250x USB 2.0 Digital Microscope (USB2-MICRO-250X) allows you to work quickly and effectively at the microscopic level. Common uses include classroom exploration, stamp or coin analysis, micro-soldering, garden parasite identification, and much more.
This adaptable tool can be used either with the included stand for lower magnifications, handheld for quick point-and-click inspection, or placed directly on subjects for the highest magnifications. The rugged plastic body makes it ideal for children, classrooms, or industrial applications.
The Microscope includes built-in LEDs that can be dialed through a range of brightness levels to properly illuminate your subject. Unlike many other USB microscopes, these LEDs shine through a diffuser to combat glare.
This is especially useful when viewing reflective objects like coins. Instead of harsh glare, the diffuser gives even light distribution across the object being viewed.
We used a capacitive touch button to initiate image capture rather than a physical push button. When observing small objects at microscopic levels, a small bump can offset an image to an imperceptible state. With a capacitive button, the lightest touch snaps a blur-free image.
Image capture can also be initiated from within the downloadable companion software, along with video or configurable time-lapse capture.
Easily analyze the surface of objects large and small at any angle by positioning the flexible gooseneck precisely where you want it. With a suction cup mount and a graduated observation stage, you can attach the microscope to any smooth surface and use the various graduation marks to measure specimens.
If the stand doesn't quite meet your needs, no problem! All fittings have 1/4"-20 TPI threads, which almost all camera mounts use. Create your own stand for your specific purpose.
USB Video Class (UVC) support is built in to all versions of Windows from XP and above. This includes Windows 10, 8.x, 7, Vista, and XP. Companion software is available on our website that allows finer control of the device, or any other video capture software can be used.
macOS and OS X
Mac computers with OS versions 10.4.2 and above have built-in support for USB Video Class (UVC) devices. Companion software is available on our website that allows finer control of the device, or you can use any video capture software, including Photo Booth (with limitations).
Linux distributions with kernels 2.6.26 and above have built-in support for USB Video Class (UVC) devices. Works on Raspberry Pi with Raspbian Jessie. We recommend using Cheese or GTK+ UVC Viewer.
Chrome and Android
Works on all Chrome OS devices with the built-in Camera application. Many newer Android devices support the microscope using an OTG cable and a viewing application. Select Android devices may not work, and it's up to the device manufacturer to support external cameras.
iOS devices (iPhones, iPads) are not compatible with external cameras.
Start by viewing objects at 40x magnification with Plugable's Digital Microscope. Look to the next image to see the resolution calibration at 250x.
Adjust to 250x magnification to see the microscopic world! See cells and particles not visible to the human eye.
