The ioLight portable microscope has a
resolution of 1 micron and built in
illumination from both above and below the
sample. A glass sample stage allows for
samples up to 35mm thick, or samples mounted
on standard microscope slides. Despite all
these professional features, the microscope
folds flat and fits in a jacket pocket or
desk draw. The rechargeable battery lasts
for several hours of active use and many
hours on standby. Images are displayed on an
iPad to make this a go-anywhere high
resolution microscope – the Magnificent
Mobile Microscope!
