ZEISS Stemi 305 cam with Labscope imaging app - the interactive way of teaching
ZEISS is one of this year’s winners of the Microscopy Today Innovation Award. At the 2016 Microscopy & Microanalysis Meeting (M&M 2016) in Columbus, Ohio, ZEISS Stemi 305 cam with Labscope has been recognized as one of the ten most innovative products of the year. ZEISS Stemi 305 is a compact stereo microscope with 5:1 zoom and integrated LED illumination for reflected and transmitted light – plus fast, easy-to-use documentation. Stemi 305 lets users observe samples as they really are: three-dimensional and crisp in contrast – no preparation needed. A fast color Wi-Fi camera and wireless router are already integrated into the body of Stemi 305 cam, allowing the microscope to be instantly connected with the Labscope imaging app.
Labscope displays the live images of all connected ZEISS microscopes in the network for presentation via an HD projector and on the student’s individual mobile tablet or smartphone. This way, students can check the image details on their own display while listening to the teacher’s explanation. After the lesson the teacher shares images via the internal facility network, or by using email or various chat programs. Students share their exercises via the internet when submitting their assignments, or share their best microscopy images with their friends and family on social networks.
“We’re very proud to receive the Microscopy Today 2016 Innovation Award for our Digital Classroom solution,” says Peter Kraemer, Head of Segment Marketing for Education and Routine at ZEISS Microscopy. “Young people are growing up in a digitized, interconnected environment. To motivate students they get to work with universal tools that are already part of their lives, such as mobile devices. The award shows that connectivity has the potential to revolutionize the classroom experience with engaged students that share an experience of science and passion. With Labscope, lecture & listen transforms into show & engage.”
All Labscope-ready ZEISS microscopes such as Primo Star HDcam, Primotech, Primovert HDcam or Stemi 305 cam can be used to connect to a Wi-Fi-enabled network that spans the whole classroom. In combination with the ZEISS Axiocam ERc 5s microscope camera, any other light microscope can become a fully connected student or teacher microscope. To experience the possibilities of the ZEISS Digital Classroom, download the free iPad and iPhone app Labscope from the Apple App Store.
