Demonstration video: Using a high resolution microscope in the field

Video demonstration by ioLight co-founder Andrew Monk of just how easy it is to use the microscope. Andrew dips into the ponds of the beautiful Millennium Meadow in Whitchurch, and finds some interesting pond life. He shows just how simple it is to set up the microscope and capture images and videos of microscopic protozoa directly onto an iPad. With a resolution of 1 micron, the microscope captures even the smallest of pond life.

The full specifications and pricing of the microscope are available at iolight.co.uk .

Microscopy and Analysis features ioLight

Microscopy and Analysis, the well respected professional magazine, recently featured an editorial on the ioLight microscope. Microscopy and Analysis is the leading international journal for microscopists, with over 46,000 subscribers and 120,000 readers worldwide.

Microscopy and Analysis says

“UK-based start up, ioLight, has launched what is described as the first high resolution pocket digital microscope.

According to the company, the instrument displays beautiful images on an iPad for sharing and pasting into reports.
For the first time scientists of all ages can capture and share professional quality images in the field instead of bringing samples back to the lab.”

First ioLight portable microscopes dispatched

Today ioLight dispatched the first batch portable microscopes.

14th July 2016 is a momentous day for ioLight as the culmination of three years of painstaking product development and manufacturing planning. For the first time students and scientists can achieve 1 micron resolution from a pocket microscope. That’s one thousandth of a millimeter!

The ioLight Microscope App displays beautiful high resolution images on an iPad and saves images and videos onto the camera roll for sharing and pasting into documents. No wonder that the first batch of ioLight microscopes has already been sold to a wide range of users including teachers; universities; electronics companies; bio-engineering experts and vets. More are being built in our manufacturing facilities in Hampshire UK.

Founder Andrew Monk says “Richard and I are delighted to see microscopes coming off the production line into packing boxes at last. The trial units have performed well with customers for 6 months and we are looking forward to seeing their images and videos from the production units.”
