100X Smartphone Microscope Improved Version
jeff1958 @glopez43611 Pacific Northwest Laboratories has the info on their web site. However, their goal was to make a very inexpensive scope using glass beads meant for industrial purpose. With those you have to pick through several to get one that gives a good image but they are very inexpensive. I bought several quality lenses in bulk from china. These cost me about $1 each due to bulk order. Here in USA they cost around from $8 to $40 each. The clip scope is kind of a novelty item that I intended to improve and sell as more useful educational device, but I got busy and dropped the ball.
jeff1958 This is a much improved version of the smart phone microscope clip. It makes almost any smart phone camera or tablet camera into a 100X microscope. It requires the use of an inexpensive 3.5 mm glass bead which can be purchased in bulk from various sources on line. Be sure to get the 3.5 mm size for this clip. This version includes slots for small dental rubber bands used for gripping the phone, and to aid in focus.
