Microscope Smartphone Adapter

Biology and Agriculture students from the School of Life Sciences have recently had an increase in online and digital learning. From this, the idea of using digital capture of images from microscopes as part of assessment work in labs was developed. However, using photography proves to be difficult as holding the phone in place whilst trying to align and focus is not an easy task. This can often lead to frustration and disengagement. This project introduces an adapter that attaches mobiles phones to microscopes for taking focused high resolution photos and video.
