Before jumping on to the teaching session, let’s get you familiar with the said term. As the name implies, it is digital in nature. A digital image is made to focus on a monitor by the means of charge coupled device. Unlike ordinary microscopes, this device has built-in LED light source; thus getting a ride over traditional ones. Enough reasons for this device to be a winner in the battle of microscopes. As far as the optics are concerned, it truncates the optics for the human eye as such every result is displayed on screen. Moreover it comes with an added advantage of USB port rendering it to be the ideal medium for fellow researchers. Honestly, the perks know no bounds. Tighten your bolts and nuts and be prepared to make one for you, in an hour.
Now is the time to reincarnate the hidden scientist in yourself! First things first, get yourself any ordinary microscope and a web camera. Secondly, de-assemble the USB port of the web camera. Pull out the cable of the connection and carefully connect the black and red wire with those of an LED. First milestone achieved!
The next step will take your dream from perception to perfection. It is essential that there’s perfect illumination while performing any experiment. Having said that, make sure you don’t forget to attach a series of white LED lights. You don’t want to end up getting disastrous results, right?

Once found a perfect key to resolve the issues of trifles, you can be a master of microscopy field. The odds are so less so that it can be counted on fingers. While the perks are beyond the scope of this article. High end 2D (two dimensional) and 3D (three dimensional) are capable of making image samples. The panoramic view of this device is as beautiful as it gets and one just couldn’t spare a glimpse of it. Now a days, developments are being made to minimize the size of the microscope to enable it for mobile use. We say, the D-day is not far!
