Virtual Microscope Hardware

 
 

ARTHUR is our home built LEGO robot system who assists us in the collection of those microscope images that are used to make rotation movies. He works with a Leica DM Pol microscope (with transmitted and reflected light capability), a Leica digital microscope camera (DFC490 HD) and an iMac computer. Some components of ARTHUR were made in our Research Design & Engineering Facility (Manager: Chris Hall - c.hall@open.ac.uk)

PERCY is ARTHUR’s best friend - they spend a lot of time working together. Percy works with a Leica DM 2500P Pol microscope (with transmitted and reflected light capability), a Leica fast acquisition digital microscope camera (DFC400), Leica Power Mosaic software, and a Leica PC computer. PERCY produces seamless high resolution mosaics that if not kept in check balloon up to 4Gb in size.
