Catalyst Frame Microscopes

Transform your smartphone/tablet into a versatile and powerful microscope!

Features

Simple versatility. No need to manually hold focus, focus it once with the knob, and then it’s as easy as holding your phone. Use it to take photos, videos, panoramics, slow-mo, or even time-lapse! Optics click into alignment, samples are held down with a clip, and the illumination is built in using an energy efficient LED with two AAA batteries for hours of battery life. Oh and the sample doesn’t touch the lenses, keeping the lenses clean and samples separate.

Flexible power with 30, 170, or 340 times optical magnification works in combination with your smartphones digital magnification to give you between 30x up to 1530x at 10 micron resolution. Lets you look closer at almost anything, whether it's a detailed macro-view of surface features to the inside of tiny cells. Use of microscope slides are optional, but we do recommend it if looking at wet samples at high magnification.
