ioLight has been invited by the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester this week on Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd January to demonstrate our Magnificent Mobile Microscope.
The two days are targeted at school visits and we are looking forward to seeing our latest prototypes in the hands of young scientists visiting the museum. The museum is also open to the public and we would very much welcome visits from other friends of the company. Come and see amazing images like this beautiful lacewing and live videos of protozoa and algae too.
ioLight has filed a patent application for the world’s first truly portable high resolution microscope. It displays clear images and videos of individual cells and other subjects onto the screen of an iPad – so no more squinting through eyepieces at a blurry mess. Instead we will show you how the instrument resolves details just 1 micron across – that’s a thousandth of a millimetre! Images and videos can be shared from the iPad using social media or pasted into reports, homework or Nobel Prize winning research reports.
The ioLight microscope will be on sale to science labs and museums later this year and then we will work on a low cost version for schools and families.
This is the first time that we have had microscopes that look like the production units that we will launch later this year. It is also the first time that we will be demonstrating wireless connection and image capture on an iPad.
We look forward to meeting you and showing you our progress. It would be helpful if you could let us know you are coming, so we can make sure that we are available.
