The inspection of medical devices using a digital microscope ensures that the final product meets customer’s specifications, as well as strict quality standards. Many modern digital microscopes, such as the Omni digital microscope, have been designed to improve workplace efficiency through their ergonomic design. Ergonomically designed digital microscopes allow the user to sit or stand upright while viewing a full HD image which reduces neck, back and eye strain associated with optical microscopes. This allows users to work more efficiently and increases productivity.
Digital microscopes can also improve the reliability of medical device inspection through the advanced features which they offer compared to optical microscopes. High resolution imaging ensures operators can see even the smallest defects and the high frame rate reduces any lag effect which can disorientate the operator.
Many digital microscopes today have in-built encoded calibration tracking, meaning measurements automatically adjust while zooming, eliminating the risk of human error.
The large magnification range and large field of view offered by many digital microscopes makes it easier to switch from an overview of a medical device to a close-up view of an area. This in turn saves time as the operator can quickly identify a problem area and focus in on it.
All data captured using a digital microscope can be saved to internal or external memory and can be recalled as required.
