MiScope Digital Handheld Microscope

The MiScope combines a digital movie camera, precision optics and LED lighting in a microscope that fits in the palm of your hand. The MiScope has 40 - 140X magnification which lets you zoom in on the fine details of insects, textiles, electronics or anything else too small to see.

Place the MiScope over the object, and view the image on your computer screen, instead of looking in a small eyepiece. Capture images or movies, and easily add labels, make measurements and draw on the live image. The MiScope connects to your computer’s USB port either laptop or desktop and comes with included Video ToolBox imaging software.
