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, or you can try our iPhone or Android app to make this a go-anywhere high resolution microscope – the Magnificent Mobile Microscope!

There are many uses for the ioLight digital microscope:

  • In the field – the ioLight is the first high resolution, field microscope, perfect for botany, agriculture, pond dipping, aquaculture, marine science and host of other situations
  • In labs it enables ‘Smart Science’ rather than expensive science – since it is low cost and digital you can have multiple microscopes on one experiment, or leave it recording data for days at a time, or put the microscope inside the experiment, for example inside incubators.
  • In schools it provides beautiful pictures of micro-beasts and plant cells, either on field trips or directly to a large screen in the class room
  • In education it is the perfect tool for out-reach programs, to display samples via a projector in the lecture theatre, or for field trips
  • In industry it enables manufacturers of micro products to show their products to their customers in industries such as electronics, MEMS,  materials, sensors, filtration etc

​There are two models in the range 1mm and 2mm:

COMPARISON OF 1MM AND 2MM VERSIONS

  1MM MICROSCOPE 2MM MICROSCOPE
Field of view (image width) 1mm 2mm
Magnification X200 on 9.7” screens (e.g. iPad Air) X100 on 9.7” screens (e.g. iPad Air)
Magnification with digital zoom X500 on 9.7” screens (e.g. iPad Air) X250 on 9.7” screens (e.g. iPad Air)
  Larger screens give more magnification, limited by resolution
Resolution 1μm (1 micron = 1/1000mm)
Similar to x20 objective and x10 eyepiece on conventional microscope
 
Working distance (lens to sample) 1mm 2.5mm
Applications Highest resolution portable microscope

Cells – see more detail

Applications where detail is required

Wider field of view, general purpose portable microscope

Counting applications – see more cells

Better for opaque samples like coins and engineering component inspection.

 

1mm Microscope

 

2mm Microscope

Fly_wing_1mmFOV-300x225

HOUSEFLY WING

Fantastic detail on the 1mm microscope, but you see a larger area on 2mm.

Onion_skin_1mmFOV-300x225

 

ONION CELLS STAINED

WITH IODINE

1mm clearly shows the cells, cell walls and the nuclei.

2mm shows a larger area, but less detail

Onion_skin_2mmFOV-300x225

 

Cheek_cells_1mmFOV-300x225

 

HUMAN CHEEK CELLS

STAINED WITH METHYL BLUE

1mm clearly shows the cells and the nuclei, which are harder to see on the 2mm.

However, the 2mm version makes cell counting much easier.

Blood_smear_1mmFOV-300x225

 

HUMAN BLOOD CELLS

Blood cells are 5-15μm across (1μm is a micron or 1/1000 mm).

On the 1mm instrument you can clearly see the outline of

red blood cells and with with digital zoom and staining you

may even be able to see some structure in the larger white cells

Coin_1mmFOV-300x225

 

COIN

Opaque samples need the top illuminator.

Both product versions have this feature.

We recommend the 2mm version for opaque samples

because its longer working distance makes it easier

to illuminate the subject properly.
