When pursuing a biocontrol program, it's best to take the preventative approach which necessitates careful monitoring. With hemp russet mites on the scene, precision scopes and the ability to snap photos is critical for growers in order to share information with us, as well as with their own team, and for documentation. We have received many inquiries lately regarding which scope would provide accuracy and ease without "breaking the bank". We were thrilled to find ProScopes, an affordable line of microscopes which are comparable to some of the pricier models we have purchased in house.
This ProScope Micro Mobile microscope attachment turns your Apple iPad Air or iPad 5th gen (released March 2017) into a high-powered microscope.
