More about Virtual Microscope

Since we added this software to our catalog in 2007, it has managed to reach 6,819 installations, and last week it had 3 downloads.

Virtual Microscope is a relatively light software that does not require as much storage than most programs in the section Science & education software. It's a very heavily used program in Hong Kong.

The software version is 6.2.2 and its last update happened on 4/18/2007. It's available for users with the operating system Windows 95 and prior versions, and it is only available in English.

Virtual Microscope is a Java application that supports interactive viewing of high-resolution, multi-dimensional image datasets from various microscopes. We currently support data from a Philips Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope (ESEM), and a Fluorescence Light Microscope.

The interface provides a simulation of an actual microscope interface. Controls common to all datasets include brightness, magnification (usually up to 1800x), navigation, measurement, and annotation. SEM samples include a contrast control, and some also include a focus control.

The navigation and magnification controls allow the user to explore any point of interest on the sample. This differs from other virtual microscopes that have been produced which provide only a few 'hot spots' that can be magnified and explored.
