Perceptive Development releases iMicroscope

Perceptive Development has announced the release of iMicroscope, an iPhone application that allows scientists and students to use the iPhone camera to take precision microphotographs through microscopes. Originally created by Zack Gainsforth, a scientist at the UC Berkeley Space Sciences Laboratory, iMicroscope aims to make microphotography more accessible for education and research by providing a simple and cost-effective solution for students and researchers who may not have access to sophisticated and expensive micrograph equipment. iMicroscope works simply by placing the iPhone camera above the microscope’s eyepiece and then using the microscope’s magnification settings to produce a calibrated micrograph image. iMicroscope is available on the App Store for $3.
