User Interface

Precipoint’s M8 serves as a dual microscope and scanner with all features accessible via a touch screen computer – making it a truly digital microscope. Our intuitive software allows for easy navigation through your microscope slides with just the touch of your fingers.

With everything automated and digitized, there is no need for oculars and manual focus knobs. Work with a touchscreen computer, a tablet, or a smartphone and examine the sample with your own hands, literally.

Overview

M8 Microscope starts by scanning your whole slide for an instant overview of your specimen. The overview will always show on the left top corner of the screen so that you can easily access your areas of interest. Navigate and zoom directly to the relevant regions of the slide images without searching around aimlessly. M8 also has the capability of reading slide barcodes.

Region of Interest

The M8 from Precipoint is truly smart and digital:
Our Live-Stitching feature combines individual pictures taken at the maximum resolution of the objective within seconds to a full-screen single picture. This gives you an amazingly large field of view not seen in microscopy yet and makes a change of objective redundant.

Findings

Enabled by the intuitive operation concept, you zoom seamlessly through the slide as if you could examine the sample with your own hands. Annotations, measurements, multiple fields of view and other software based applications empower you and your work
