Raspberry Pi based microscope

Hey there,

I am currently working on a rasperry pi based microscope. So far I had posted descriptions of two prototypes on Instructables ( [] ), but I am trying to construct a simplified version as the base for a a building kit.

Have a look and me know if you might be interested to offer this as a kit in the US. Estimated hardware costs, including camera, would be about 40-50 US$, maybe a bit less on larger volumes.

Kind regards



this is really cool! I'm using a commercial microscope right now, and really need to move to an automated slide stage to automate the assay. This is project is a great start to doing that.

@TonyC can talk about kit stuff

@plundh I'm not sure about this kit, but the OpenFlexure Microscope is moving towards a kit. More notes here:

@richardbowman and crew have a kit for sale:
