Frequently Asked Questions



Will PAXcam Microscope Cameras fit on my microscope?

PAXcam digital microscope cameras attach to almost any microscope using a standard C-mount coupler. The coupler mounts to a phototube on a trinocular head, or any other camera port that is supplied by the microscope manufacturer. MIS offers a wide variety of C-mount couplers for an assortment of microscope configurations, if needed. PAXcam has been successfully coupled to various models of Olympus, Nikon, Zeiss, Leica, Bausch & Lomb, AO, Huvitz, Meiji, Wild, Unitron, and other microscopes through the years. Microscopes may be upright, inverted, stereozoom, metallographic, POL, fluorescence, transmitted light, reflected light, or any other configuration. If you have any questions about attaching a PAXcam to your particular microscope, please contact us and we’ll assist you in that process.
