Full High Definition LCD Monitor
(First in DM)

21.5” Full HD LCD monitor (1920 x 1080) is integrated KH-8700 and has one of the top grade high intensity pixel reproduction .

Full High Definition LCD Monitor (First in DM)


For the first time ever in digital microscopy, the CCU (Genex) combines a high sensitivity compact CCD camera operating in a 32 bit image with high resolution at 1200 x 1600 pixels on “Live Image.”


High Intensity LED Light Source

The new high intensity LED light source provides 5700K temperature, which closely portrays day light color temperature (5460K) to re-produce true sample color image as well as full illumination immediately with no warm up time.
Average life time of 30,000 hours, equivalent to over 10 years of usage (Note: 8 hours/day x 30 days x 12 months x 10 years).

Measurementpage top

2D Measurement

Measurements including length, area, and surface area can be taken in various styles. Using only mouse operation, the object on the monitor can be measured in real-time.

2D Measurement

Fastest System to create 3D Model Image.

The integrated stepping motor allows for faster, smoother, and more accurate scanning with 0.05 um/pulse precision and 30 mm of automated travel distance.

Lighting (Flashlight)

Manipulate lighting digitally after building a 3D model in order to yield more data. Variable lighting through the software allows the end-user to improve edge after capturing.

Point Height Measurement

Display point height by simply clicking on the 3D model image. With each click, height value labels are displayed from a standard zero point or one can set a zero point (new reference point) to a specific position on the model.

Volume and Area Measurement

The operator can adjust slicer to measure volume, surface and cross-section area on the 3D model image.



Capture and Recordpage top

Real-Time 3D Tiling - Creating Wide Field of View 3D Images.

In an optical system, 3D images are produced by vertically stacking the depth of field, focus point to focus point.
However, at low magnification this method is not possible, because the depth of field is too high. Until now, height information could only be gathered in the vertical axis.

Real-Time 3D Tiling

By allowing the user to continuously stack the depth of field, focus point to focus point with the freedom to move horizontally, the user can create a 3D model with a field of view as if it were captured with a low magnification lens.

EDP (Enhanced Digital Processing)

Preview your adjustments before processing an image. Various options are now imbedded the KH-8700 to further broaden the field for image ion. Not only is this possible for HDR and Anti-Halation images, but 3D models as well.

Anti-Vibration (Camera Stabilization)

Some working environments can cause constant micron level shaking on microscopy stages. A solution to this problem is Hirox’s new Anti-Vibration feature improving observations in adverse conditions.
