The uSCOPE MXII digital microscope
The uSCOPE MXII microscope is a slide digitizer, which allows you to take overlapping pictures to be stitched together into a larger final image.
Creating Image Mosaics
Image mosaics are composed of many individual tiles, which are color-matched.
Muscle fibers in the tongue of a rabbit
The zoomable image shows the cross-section through the tongue of a rabbit. The muscles fibers and taste buds are visible.
The image shows a cross section through the stem of a pumpkin. Pumpkins belong to the dicotyledonous plants. The circular arrangement of the vascular tissue indicates this. Fifty five individual images were stitched together to make this zoomable image. The final size is about 100 megapixels (10000×10000 pixels). Happy exploring!
