Incredible Images!

Get a Quote

The uScopeGX is a digital microscope designed for geologists that want to browse and scan geological glass slides. The uScopeGX produces high-quality brightfield and polarized images (at any polarization angle 0°–90°). This digital imager offers unprecedented capability in a form factor ideal for desktop PC users.

Because of its size, the uScopeGX is highly portable. The industry-standard USB interface makes it easy to plug in and start capturing images at work or on the road. It easily interfaces with a Windows PC and allows you to view and capture images in a wide variety of environments.

So easy to use.

All your friends will want to “borrow” it

The uScope Navigator software simplifies capturing an area of interest from your geological slides. Images may be captured with no polarization (brightfield) or with polarization from 0°–90°. You can easily capture single images or select an area of interest to scan. Regions are scanned using the parameters you select. You can even create and apply your own multi-step image processing profiles to change image sharpness, improve contrast, or perform gamma correction. The uScopeGX is so easy to use, all your friends will want to borrow it—but don't let them. They may never return it.
