Swift® M3-F Forensic Comparison Microscope

Product Highlights
  • Professional features at a highly competitive price
  • Compare images in both micro and macro environments
  • Extra-bright LED illumination
(in stock)


Product Details
A truly unique concept in microscopy!

The M3-F forensic microscope with trinocular head offers professional features at a highly competitive price. Use the scope's revolutionary technology to compare images in both micro and macro environments. The M3's dedicated macro lens, with a large working distance, allows observations of bullets as well as larger, bulkier “evidence” items. Swift's powerful optical system allows images to be viewed at either 100% from the left microscope, 100% from the right, side-by-side, or overlapping. The M3-F is probably the first and only comparison microscope at this price level that can achieve this overlapping of images. With the C-mount adapter (item #595537), available separately, easily attach any C-mount-ready imaging device, including Motic® Moticam digital cameras, for analysis.
