Near Infrared Mighty Scope Reveals Details for Specialized Tasks
ANN ARBOR, MI – May 20, 2010 – Detail-exposing light from six near infrared LED lamps makes the latest Mighty Scope model a versatile analytic tool in laboratories, law enforcement, forensics, art restoration and other disciplines.
Longer wavelengths of the near infrared (NIR) spectrum let users of the hand-held microscope from Aven, Inc. see and capture color differences or fine points that aren’t visible in white light. This has practical applications for biomedical tissue analysis, chemical component differentiation, forgery detection, document examination and appraisals.
“There’s no risk of damaging heat from the NIR Mighty Scope because it focuses cool light, unlike the thermal infrared wavelengths,” says Mike Shahpurwala, president of the Michigan-based distributor of optical instruments. “It also reduces glare, an advantage for looking at reflective surfaces.”
Near infrared is just beyond visible red light wavelengths. It allows precise contrast analysis by examiners of specimens, documents, currency, artwork, jewelry and antiques, who can adjust magnification from 10 times to 200 times. As the NIR Mighty Scope reveals layers of ink, handwriting or coatings, experts can spot alterations and mismatched materials. In lab settings, the superior light transmittance enhances chemical component identification, burned document reconstruction and studies of near-opaque items such as insect exoskeletons.
Aside from its NIR bulbs, the new Mighty Scope has the same precision controls and other features as earlier models with white or ultraviolet light:
• Brightness control wheel allows fingertip illumination adjustment.
• Microsoft-compatible software (included) supports capture of still images, interval shots or video.
• Active pixel sensor technology provides sharp images from a 1.3-megapixel camera with a color CMOS sensor.
• Auto exposure, automatic white balance and auto gain control assure optimum image clarity.
• A USB port lets magnified images be viewed instantly on a VGA monitor or a higher-resolution SXGA monitor.
• Ergonomic design allows comfortable use with either hand.
• Microtouch shutter button eliminates the need to tap a computer key.
“We’re gratified to extend the Mighty Scope line with this NIR model,” says Aven’s president.
