Upgrades your optical microscope to one that features a digital camera
Upgraded to be UVC compliant for broader application compatibility. It does not require any installation or set up of the driver.(July 2016)
Easily displays digital images of large image fields on a computer from an ISO standard eyepiece of optical microscopes including phase-contrast microscopes and metallurgical microscopes or C-mount trinocular tubes by attaching a C-mount adapter
Offers larger field of view (3 to 5 times), higher resolution, and higher responsiveness than conventional digital microscope cameras
High-performance software with an "automatic edge detection function" that reduces the measurement error caused by personal equation (standard installation)
Features GOKO's precise optical system
Has a great reputation, especially amongst quality control departments (e.g., checks for defective products), national research institutes, and universities
MADE IN JAPAN
GOKO MVC-DU is developed and manufactured by GOKO Imaging Devices Co., Ltd., an innovative Japanese manufacturer of optical imaging devices with a 70 year history, which holds the world's largest production volume of film compact cameras and global market share of 8mm cinema editors under its own brand and OEM supply. See our history.
Offers a large image field that is close in size to the object field seen through the eyepiece
The MVC-DU offers a larger image field (3 to 5 times) compared to conventional microscope cameras, which resolves common problems caused by the difference in size between the object field seen through the eyepiece and the displayed image field on a computer. The MVC-DU features an optical system that is equivalent to a 10× eyepiece.
Easily mounted on optical microscopes with ISO standard eyepieces
The MVC-DU can be mounted on optical microscopes, such as stereo microscopes, biological microscopes (both upright and inverted), and even small monocular microscopes with an ISO standard 23.2 mm or 30 mm eyepiece (Olympus, Nikon, Leica, ZEISS, etc.) in order to upgrade them to ones that feature digital cameras.
The MVC-DU is popular among those who need a recording device in their microscope, or have difficulty obtaining films of instant cameras mounted on trinocular body tubes.
The MVC-DU can be mounted on optical microscopes in which the insertion part without the eyepiece is φ23.2 (principally biological microscopes) or φ30 (principally stereo microscopes), which satisfies ISO standard criteria. Please see below.
Made in Japan! Features GOKO's precise optical system
A good optical system is essential for quality images. GOKO has a proud history of more than 60 years as a Japanese manufacturer of finished optical products, and we place considerable emphasis on developing fine optical systems and not just increasing the number of pixels. Our fine optical system realizes greater clarity and better quality. Please see sample images.
The attached C-mount adapter enables easy mounting on a C-mount trinocular tube
The MVC-DU is easily mounted on trinocular microscopes by attaching the C-mount adapter.
The MVC-DU can be mounted on a trinocular tube, which has a C-mount thread cut and is not equipped with a lens for optimizing the angle of view or changing the projection magnification, by attaching a C-mount adapter in place of the spacer ring.
*Please confirm that the C-mount trinocular is not originally equipped with a lens for optimizing the angle of view or changing the projection magnification.
*The MVC-DU can be used as a USB-output camera by installing a CCTV lens to the C-mount and by replacing the spacer ring with a C-mount adapter.
Two types of measurement software are available:
You can choose the measurement software according to your needs.
