WHAT EXACTLY IS A SCOPE-ON-A-ROPE?
The Scalar™ VL-7 EX SOAR consists of a miniature, self-lighted video camera with interchangeable magnifying “objective” lenses. Each magnifying lens has a “contact tip” which is at the focal plane of the lens; therefore, simply by touching the SOAR tip to the sample, a teacher or student automatically produces an in-focus image on the TV screen.
It can be held by hand, can function both as a compound and as a dissecting microscope, and can be used to examine traditional slides and samples. Since the sample does not have to be placed on a microscope stage, however, a sample of any size can be viewed. Little if any preparation of the specimen is necessary.
