MIC-D Digital Microscope Screen Savers

MIC-D Digitial Microscope Screen Savers

Visitors who enjoy the galleries are invited to download and install screen savers containing images from the galleries. Our software programmers have worked in collaboration with microscopists to develop a series of screen savers using digital images captured with the MIC-D microscope operating in a variety of contrast-enhancing modes. These screen savers have been developed for computers utilizing the Windows (95, 98, NT, 2000, and XP) operating system and are available as free downloads to our visitors. We hope you enjoy these screen savers, which are provided at no charge by Olympus America, Inc. and The Florida State University.
