The digital microscope that fits in the palm of your hand

The MiScope (pronounced My-Scope) now brings infrared (IR) imaging to a new level of portability. It combines a digital movie camera, precision optics, white, and IR LEDs into a microscope that fits in the palm of your hand.

The MiScope-IR is ideal for forensic investigation, and document examination. The 40-140X magnification lets you view a larger area of text, or zoom in to view toner speckle and paper fibers. Capture images or movies, easily add labels, make measurements, and even draw right on the live video image.

The three position switch lets you choose between visible and IR illumination. Or turn the LEDs off and use a light table or an external light source for oblique lighting.
