Digital molecular medicine: Web-microscope & mobile microscopy

Web-based virtual microscopy – the WebMicroscope – was developed a few years ago by a group of researchers led by FIMM’s Research Director Johan Lundin. The multitouch microscope – a hand and finger gesture controlled microscope – builds upon this webmicroscopy technology. The method is a combination of two technologies: web-based virtual microscopy and a giant size multitouch display.

The result is an entirely new way of performing microscopy: by touching a table- or even wall-sized screen the user can navigate and zoom within a microscope sample in the same way as in a conventional microscope. Using the touch control, it is possible to move from the natural size of the sample to a 1000-fold magnification, at which cells and even subcellular details can be seen.
