Microbehunter Microscopy Magazine Uses uScope™MXII for Image Capture

Microscopes International, manufacturer of the world's first low-cost, portable, wavelength limited, digital microscope, is pleased to announce Microbehunter Microscopy Magazine is utilizing the uScopeMXII for a majority of the images displayed in the magazine. The uScope is a robust, yet portable, system that can automatically capture and save high-resolution images directly to a computer. The unique design of the uScope is ideally suited for research, clinical and educational applications where high quality, automated, digital imaging is required.

"Digitizing large areas of a slide at high resolution has never been easier. The uScope is a digital microscope which captures high-resolution, overlapping images of a slide and combines it into a final stitched image. The uScope will allow virtual microscopy to find its way into the home or small lab and education sector. I wonder if the uScope has the potential of changing the world of light microscopy as much as the introduction of tablet computers had on the world of computing." said Mr. Oliver Kim, Editor in Chief of Microbehunter Microscopy Magazine.

"The digital microscope revolution starts when everyone can afford to have an automated, digital, microscope on their desk," said Jon Ward, CEO of Microscopes International. "The ability to interactively browse slides with full control of focus, image processing and location combined with the ease of the industry-standard USB interface allows the user to simply plug in and start capturing images. An added benefit is we take the risk out of buying this revolutionary new product by offering a thirty-day, money back guarantee. If a customer is not sure the product will fit their needs they can try it risk free for 30 days. We do this because we are confident they will love it and wonder how they ever lived without the uScope."
