ioLight Portable Fluorescence Digital Microscope
An easy to use portable microscope for fluoresence samples, which can be simply viewed on a smart phone, tablet or PC with a wifi connection. The compact design (160mm x 101mm) is great for when bench space is limited and the low weight (450g) makes it easily portable. It is the ideal microscope for education, science outreach and demonstrations.
The ioLight fluorescence microscope has 200x magnification when viewed on a 9" tablet screen and has a 1mm field of view. The standard excitation wavelength is 465nm, but other wavelengths are available on request.
An ioLight app can be downloaded from the Apple or Google Play stores.
The ioLight fluorescence digital microscope is suitable for samples >5-10um in size. In the lab, the microscope is suitable for qualitative sorting of samples, eg sorting organisms that are successfully expressing GFP (or other fluorophores) from those that are not.
This microscope is not suitable for quantitative fluorescence measurements.
The ioLight requires a tablet or phone running iOS 8.1 or higher or Android® 4.4 or higher, or a computer with WiFi and a web browser. Newer, faster devices are recommended. Older low-performance devices may work, but this is not guaranteed.
