ioLight digital field microscopes for images on the go

Scitech introduces ioLight’s
new range of portable digital microscopes designed for getting images on the
go.

Featuring high-end
visual capabilities in an affordable package, ioLight portable digital
microscopes fold flat and measure a compact 160 x 101 x 32 mm in size. The portable
microscopes use standard microscope slides and feature adjustable top and
bottom illumination for use on both biological and opaque samples.

Key features of ioLight’s
digital field microscopes include sample stage made from glass, enabling
microscope slides and samples up to 35mm thick to be easily positioned; ability
to unfold quickly to record and share 5MP still images and real time HD video
at a magnification of x200 on an iPad Air; image resolution of 1 micron powerful
enough to see the structure of plant and animal cells; particularly good for
live samples, which deteriorate on the journey back to the lab; ability to
operate anywhere, even without Wi-Fi or mobile phone network; and internal rechargeable
lithium battery lasting several hours when actively viewing images and much
longer in standby.

Supporting
magnifications up to 400x, these powerful digital microscopes come in variations
of 1mm and 2mm field of view.

ioLight’s portable digital
microscopes can be used for observing plant and animal samples at the cellular
level, field science, education and outreach, animal medicine, micro
engineering, site surveys and any other application where portability and ease
of use must not compromise image quality. These microscopes will even display
limited structure in blood cells, which are 5-10µm across.

The portable
microscopes are compatible with a tablet or phone running iOS 8.1 or Android
4.4 or higher, or a computer with Wi-Fi and Google Chrome (or another web
browser). Scientists of all ages can capture and share professional quality
images in the field instead of bringing samples back to the lab.
