In February, Adrian Rogers won an ioLight field microscope in a competition run by Lab News. Adrian correctly identified all 3 microscopic images to win the competition. That’s not easy since when viewed through a microscope, even very familiar objects look nothing like they normally do. Adrian has a great Twitter feed on which he explains his exploits with the ioLight microscope. So when I had to go to the North West I was really excited to meet Adrian and find out why he likes the ioLight portable microscope and what he has been doing with it.
Adrian works at Romer Labs on food testing and has been using the microscope both in the lab at work and at home for pleasure. He uses the microscope with his iPhone making it a highly portable setup that he can easily pop into his bag and take anywhere. The microscope produces its images directly onto the iPhone, so the pictures are very easy for Adrian to post onto his Twitter feed.
In the video below Adrian explains why he has been using the ioLight microscope in his work at Romer Labs.
It is really fantastic that the person who won the microscope loves using it so much at work and play! Well done Adrian for winning the competition and thanks very much for sharing so many lovely microscopic images.
