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 to make this a go-anywhere high resolution microscope – the Magnificent Mobile Microscope!
