Dazor Manufacturing Corp., a St. Louis, MO company, has announced the release of a new optical digital microscope, the speckFINDER HD®. While specifically not being marketed as a medical device, the microscope could be used for biological research, microphotography, and other bio applications. The company specifically touts the microscope’s ergonomics designed “to reduce the stress placed upon the body.”
speckFINDER HD® technology completely integrates the technologies of high quality optics, digital cameras, LED lighting, glass displays, personal computing electronics, and mechanics, to produce a workstation- friendly computer video microscope. Unlike conventional microscopes or stereoscopes with which a user must conform their body to a machine, speckFINDER HD® technology allows the user to obtain a comfortable posture and then adjust the machine to their individual comfort needs. Single or multiple workers can view magnified images simultaneously and effortlessly.
Because speckFINDER HD® combines multiple optical and digital technologies, images can also be stored in multiple digital formats, networked, and software enhanced as needed. Measurement, drawing, call-outs, and overlays are all conveniently available within speckFINDER HD®’s standard technology package. Live or stored speckFINDER HD® images can be viewed on another display or projected onto an overhead screen for training, instructing, or supervising.
