4595 Platt Road
Ann Arbor, MI, 48108

Press release date: February 8, 2013

ANN ARBOR, MI – Aven, Inc. brings wireless networking to portable microscopy with the advanced Mighty Scope Connect. This handheld scope can display magnified images and video on three tablets or smart phones simultaneously, a breakthrough for medical offices, engineering teams, research collaborators, educators and others working in groups.

By serving as a wi-fi "hotspot" with a range of about 30 feet, the innovative Mighty Scope Connect eliminates the need for an Internet connection or wireless network access. This allows joint use for scientific or forensic field work at any location. Health care professionals can easily capture diagnostic close-ups to share in real time or later with colleagues, patients and family members on their iPads, iPhones or Android tablets and phones.

"The popular Mighty Scope is upgraded into the wi-fi age," says Mike Shahpurwala, president of Aven. "This is our first microscope able to transmit live images to screens on three devices without needing anything except a free app."

In addition to applications in industrial inspection, lab work and medical settings, the scope lets instructors share still or video images with students. The battery-powered Mighty Scope Connect has adjustable magnification up to 80x, depending on screen size, and controllable lighting from six white LEDs.

It's compatible with Android devices (2.3 and higher) and Apple iOS tablets and phones (4.1 and newer). A Wi-viewer app can be downloaded without cost. As with earlier-generation Mighty Scopes, a high-quality lens assures undistorted images. A ¼ in. color CMOS sensor and active pixel technology produce crisp images with true color values. Video is recorded at 15 frames per second. Gain control and white balance are automatic.

The new model, which is six inches long, comes with an adjustable stand, three rechargeable nickel-metal hydride batteries and a charger. Optional accessories include two polarizers and three specialized stands – flexible, boom or dual-view.
