ioLight and Bayer are set to present the first professional pocket microscope at the London Vet Show.
Until now, the only way to diagnose disease accurately using a microscope has been to take samples and send them back to a laboratory for expensive and time-consuming tests, carried out by experienced pathologists.
With the arrival of the ioLight microscope however, vets can immediately look at the sample and be able to either reassure pet owners or farmers , or prioritise laboratory diagnosis and treatment, if they are concerned.
Launched in 2016, the ioLight microscope is the first professional-quality pocket digital microscope.
It fits in a jacket pocket, is simple to use and robust.
It unfolds quickly to record and share 5MP still images and real time HD video at a magnification of x200 on an iPad Air®.
ioLight is delighted to have been asked to assist Bayer on their stand at the London Vet Show. The microscope will be used to demonstrate Bayer’s products, with both Andrew Monk and Richard Williams, the founders of ioLight, in attendance.
James Crawford, head of marketing at Bayer, says “Bayer is delighted to present the ioLight microscope on our stand at the London Vet Show 2016. The microscope provides fantastically clear images and is simple to use, showing off Bayer’s products for all our customers to see.”
Andrew Monk, founder of ioLight, says “Since our launch earlier this year we have seen a massive interest from the veterinary sector. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to demonstrate our microscope to such a large audience, and are looking forward to working with Bayer.”
