The DM143 is offered in two configurations: N2GG - 2.0MP camera and a space-saving compact stand or, the significantly more popular FBGG - 3.0MP and large stand. Both microscopes include 10x-40x zoom magnification. In our opinion, the 3.1 megapixel version, which includes a larger than typical 1/2" sensor, offers a sensible combination of high quality resolution and optics combined with robust software and an affordable price. 5 year warranty.


The microscope includes two WF10x/20mm eyepieces with diopter controls for individual eye focusing and a 1x-4x Greenough zoom system. Combined, the magnification range is 10x-40x. Top (incident) and bottom (transmitted) illumination is powered by 12V 20W halogen with dimming controls. 110v/220V universal voltage. There is a choice of two stands as follows:

FBGG: 3.0MP resolution with a large footprint stand, reversible and frosted stage plates and clips. This is by far our most popular option.
N2GG: 2.0MP resolution with a compact space-saving stand, reversible and frosted stage plates and clips.

Both stands feature an integrated digital camera with a built-in 1/2" CMOS sensor for significantly better image quality than the 1/3" typically found in competing microscope cameras. Software is the well-established Motic Images PLus 2.0ML for Windows and Motic Images Plus 2.0 for Macintosh.


The Motic Images Plus 2.0 software is a powerful software suite that has impressed us. Users will find a familiar interface matched to either Windows or Macintosh OSX operating environments. The software allows for automatic object or cell counting, image and data capture, easy export of reports to spreadsheets , measurements, counting and even MP3 functionality so you can play music while you are working.

Add narration or other sound clips to any image using this software this digital microscope turns into a true multimedia apparatus! Features include Measurement, Image Comparison for forensic or other applications, Editing and Enhancements, Counting and Auto Segmentation that facilitates counting. In our opinion, these are are unequaled features that are not found in competing products at this price point.

Software Features

Measurement: Motic Measurements are easy to use and accurate owing to the quick, calibration process using Motic's certified calibration slide. Possible measurements include: Line, Circle, Rectangle, 3-Point Circle, 3-Point Arc, Polygon, Ellipse, Angle as well as Irregular shapes. All of the results are stored in a Measurement Table which can be exported to Excel with one click.
Image Comparison: A useful feature includes image comparison that enables users to compare differences in specimens over time or side-by-side. Different methods can be used to compare including: 'Subtract'; 'Difference'; Multiply'; Proportional.
Image Enhancements: With several filters, including a customized filter, Motic Images Plus 2.0 allows the user to edit, enhance or change a captured image. Text, Stamp and Paint tools turn any captured image into a finished project or evaluation for presentation. This feature should not be underestimated! Essentially, the software has an integrated word processor designed for combining captured images with comments - perfect for in-lab results or classroom use - and far simpler than a separate WORD document.
Multi-Media Imaging: Motic's own SFC file extension allows a narrated sound file to be placed directly onto the image. Send an image with narration on several points by email to anyone. The SFC file also allows measurements or any image enhancements to be removed or changed at a later date.
Counting: An introductory counting function is also included with the software, allowing users to calculate objects in the image.
Auto-Segmentation: This is a neat feature that highlights items for easier counting
