AmScope offers a range of microscopes designed to meet the needs of students, teachers and professionals. 

As you explore the possibilities of viewing organisms at the sub-cellular level, 

you may find yourself wondering how it all works. 

The AmScope microscope uses a combination of two lenses to magnify objects.  

The first lens, called the objective lens, is located under the stage 

A second lens, called the ocular lens or eyepiece, is located above the stage. 

The objective lens collects light from the specimen and focuses it onto the ocular lens 

The ocular lens then magnifies this image and projects it into your eye. 

The amount of magnification is determined by the ratio of the focal length of the objective lens to the focal length of the ocular lens.
