TESTIMONIALS

“We experimented with a prototype DIPLE in our lab at Harvard. It’s a wonderful device — fun and super easy to use. It’s handy for quick scans of slides in a lab, even from remote locations. The cell-phone interface makes it effortless to share micrographs rapidly with lab members, etc. My kids also had a lots of fun with DIPLE; it’s an inexpensive and easy-to-use device to excite kids about optics and science more generally. ”

J. Assad, Ph.D. , Professor @ Harvard Medical School, USA

“As a pathologist, I work daily with a microscope. I tested the Diple system. It is easy to use: you put the slide then your smartphone in the box provided, and after a quick focus, you can observe the slide. Image quality obtained with the Diple system allows making the same observations than those made under a microscope. Nice photos can also be made.
Diple is an easy-to-use system, which could be used for frozen sections examinations in clinics that do not have a microscope.”

Dr. Stephanie Patouraux, Pathologist @ University Hospital Nice – France

“I had the pleasure to receive a prototype of DIPLE and I can say that it works very well; I believe that this product will be very useful in many scientific fields, and in particular for medical support in developing Countries”

Dr. Fabrizio dal Moro,  Professor and Chair of Urology @ University of Udine, Italy – Associate Professor of Urology @ University of Padova, Italy

“I tested a prototype of Diple and I think that it could be very useful as a point-of-care diagnostic tool in remote areas”

Dr. G. Pagani, Dipartimento di Scienze Biomediche e Cliniche L. Sacco, Università degli Studi di Milano

“Before to receive the DIPLE prototype I was skeptical, because I tested other systems for microscopy on smartphone. I have to admit that performance and usability of this product are amazing.”

Jiang Bo, Senior Engineer @ Ningbo University, Zhejiang, China

“I received an early prototype some month ago. I was really impressed on the number of applications I have been using it for (students training, teaching, scientific events). It has an incredible resolution, it is user friendly and it is suitable for a large range of ages. I strongly recommend it!”

S. Zucca, Ph.D. Researcher @ University College London, dept experimental psychology

DIPLE is an innovative product that converts any mobile or tablet into a digital microscope.

This easy to use, compact and portable kit transforms any smartphone and tablet into a POWERFUL microscope. You can see your own red blood cells or even bacteria in seconds!

MICROSCOPY HAS NEVER BEEN SO EASY!

DIPLE is a compact and portable box containing a light source, a stage for samples/microscope slides and a sturdy metal plate with an optical system. To use it, simply place the objective of the smartphone on the optical system

Three version of magnifiers

Black 150x-1000x*

Magnification: 150x

providing 150x REAL magnifications – resolution of 0,7/0,8 micron – to see cell details, bacteria – working distance of 0.3 mm

Grey 75x-500x*

Magnification: 75x

providing 75x REAL magnifications – resolution of 1 micron – to see bacteria, cells, yeast, microorganisms (protozoans, rotifers, water bears…)… – working distance of 0.6 mm

Red 35x-200x*

Magnification: 35x

providing 35x REAL magnifications – resolution of 3 micron, field of view of around 1 mm – to see cells, microorganisms (protozoans, rotifers, water bears…) – working distance of 1.5 mm

These values must be multiplied by the digital zoom of your device, ensuring effective magnification of more than 1000x (without pixelation) and a detail of less than 1 micron (1/1000 mm)

Two Versions of Mechanical Stages

Fine Stage

The glass slide can be shifted by mechanical screws, for a precise search of microscopic targets.

The glass slide can be precisely moved under the objective lens, with a run of 5mm on the two perpendicular directions. This screw driven system allows for fine movement, while manual scanning of the sampe is the fastest way to find the region of interest of the sample to observe with the powerful Diple objective lenses.

Precise mechanical and magnetic parts guide the lens in the right position, in good alignment with the light source; a 3 steps component provides the right height to one edge of the Diple objective lens, for allowing a precise and user-friendly adjusting of the working distance.

Standard Stage

A simple mechanical support for your samples, where you can shift your slide manually for scanning your sample under the DIPLE lens.

This flat table has precise mechanical and magnetic parts to guide the lens in the right position, in good alignment with the light source; a 3 steps component provides the right height to one edge of the Diple objective lens, for allowing a precise and user-friendly adjusting of the working distance.

FEEDBACK FROM CUSTOMERS

“Thank you for your product. Our organization recently bought your product and have enjoyed using so much that we are sending it to a young scientist so that they can utilize and enjoy it.

B.Z. (USA)

I received my DIPLE and boy do I love it. I did not expect it to be that great. It’s really awesome. […] All the best and thanks for making something so great!

F.V. (Germany)

I’m glad to share with you that your device is great! I tested samples of 1 um marine bacteria and it was easy to find them.

The device is easy to use and the quality of magnification is better than I expected.

A.D.P. (Israel)

I think the DIPLEs would be a tremendous asset to our students in the remote learning environment we face this semester.

R. P. (USA)

Thank you for your company’s assistance in getting DIPLEs sent to us in time for our course. They were wonderful!

J. K. (USA)

Hello! I just tried my DIPLE and found it amazing! […]”

G.E. (USA)

That’s wonderful thank you so much! These are totally awesome- every school should have these 🙂

DIPLE Lux

The powerful magnifying lens for your smartphone

DIPLE LUX is made up of a DIPLE objective lens, plus a compact EXTRA LIGHT SOURCE for lateral illumination of the samples; a new system specifically designed to work on opaque subjects to observe the tiniest details of their surfaces, out of the DIPLE box.

This version of DIPLE has been released for responding the requests of many backers that asked for a DIPLE model to check microscopic details of thick, or non-transparent samples. DIPLE LUX has a light source connected to the objective tile and it does not need to be attached to the phone; these two features make DIPLE LUX a product compatible with all the phone models.

DIPLE is a patented product by SmartMicroOptics S.r.l.
