Skoped Micro was born from a need to capture high-quality images through a microscope without breaking the bank. You have a first-class camera in your back pocket, so why not utilize that as a tool instead of buying yet another device. With that mindset, we aimed to engineer the perfect solution. We were already doing this at our Mother Company, Phone Skope, where we offered an array of Custom Phone Cases and Optic Adapters to attach a phone to a pair of binoculars or a spotting scope for taking amazing pictures of birds and other wildlife, so why couldn’t we do that with a microscope? Through the help of our partner, Dr. Cade Wilson, we were able to come up with an eyepiece adapter that replaces your microscope eyepiece and snaps right over your phone’s camera lens to set you up with the perfect image every time.
Although Skoped Micro is a new company, Phone Skope has been on the market for over ten years. As phone cameras have increased in quality and popularity, so has the engineering of a better design of our custom phone cases. What started as a little clip-on to a flip-phone camera has evolved into a stand-alone case with a removable disc to switch quickly and easily between the multiple lenses available on most phones. We’ve taken the Phone Skope vision and aimed it at the world of microbiology and microscopes. As a result, we have simplified capturing an image or video for digital pathology, education, or even acquiring images for files. Click the Microscope Eyepiece Adapter into your Phone Skope phone case and slide it into your microscope. The world of microorganisms is live on your phone screen, instantly. You’ll never need another expensive clip-on camera or microscope equipment with a screen or all the cords to plug into your computer. You have everything you need with the Skoped Micro set up and your phone and current microscope. Our mission is to get you the highest quality images and videos through your microscope, using the tools you already have.
For phones, we offer a variety of Custom Phone Cases and a Universal Phone Case option. For Microscope eyepieces, we currently offer two sizes, 23mm or 30mm. This is the measurement of the outside diameter of the male side of a removable eyepiece. All of our eyepieces are 15x. See below under our "Education Section" for more information on which setup will be the best for you. Also, if you don't find what you are looking for, use the "contact us section" at the bottom of this page and let us know what you need. We can always come up with an option for you!
Not only do we offer a hardware device to attach your phone to your microscope, but we also have developed complementary software. Check out our Skoped Micro App, where you can take screenshots and screen videos of your specimens, send those to others as an educational tool, show your clients your diagnosis is accurate, or send to a colleague for a second opinion. Think Digital Pathology. Also, use the added measuring device to measure your specimen digitally up to the nearest micrometer. If you need to show your results live, we also have an option for a live broadcast. You can interact with your colleague, client, or class in real-time, sharing what you see in your microscope with them, as well as explain what they are seeing. Below is a more in-depth look at the current features of the Skoped Micro App.
We believe the most important thing we can offer you beyond a great product is getting the most out of that product. So we’ve created this education section to give you video how-tos on best practices and applications for the Skoped Micro Setup.Watch Our Videos

How does the Skoped Micro Kit work?
