Compare for yourself:
(Sample = moon dust from Apollo 17, reflected light)
Conventional microscopes:
Edge-3D Microscope Z-Focus Stacking:
Moon Sand Apolo 11 under microscope moon sand from apollo 11 deep focus with Edge 3D Microscope
Conventional microscopes only allow you to see small portions of the image in focus at a time.
Edge-3D microscopes allow you to see the entire image in focus with Z-Focus Stacking technology.

Another Comparison:
(Sample = nerve cells, transmitted light)
Conventional microscopes:
Edge-3D Microscope motion parallax mode:
Nerve Cell Microscope focus levels Nerve Cells panfocal motion paralax 3D edge
With conventional microscopes most of the image is out of focus.
The Edge-3D microscope's Motion Parallax mode provides rich visual depth information.

3D model mode:
(Sample = unicellular ciliate, flourescence imaging)
Conventional microscopes:
Edge-3D Microscope 3D Model mode:
unicellular ciliate conventional microscope focus levels unicellular ciliate edge-3D microscope 3D model mode
With conventional microscopes it is sometimes very difficult to make clear observations.
The Edge-3D microscope's 3D Model mode provides valuable perspective and control to your samples.

The edge-3D MICROSCOPE is a highly sophisticated digital 3D microscope with a wider variety of features than are found in expensive 3D confocal microscopes, and, for a fraction of the cost!

The microscope is one of the most important tools for science and industry. Although microscope specimens are three-dimensional objects, the vast majority of conventional microscopes produce only flat, two-dimensional images, with extremely shallow depth of field. With the advent of computers, lasers and robotics, the poor depth of field problem has been solved. Automated microscopes can take a series of images at different focus points, and then the out-of-focus portions are removed from each image. A computer reconstructs the in-focus portions of the image with dramatically extended depth and clarity. Until now, these new and revolutionary advances in 3D imaging have not been translated into affordable microscopes. To address this problem, Edge has developed a unique 3D microscope with extended depth of focus and clarity that is inexpensive and user friendly.

Edge is innovating a superior 3D light microscope with the flexibility and multiple features of a universal microscope. Edge recognizes that 3D reveals a hidden dimension of reality that cannot be seen with 2D. So, in addition to its extraordinary 2D capabilities, the Edge is also a highly sophisticated digital 3D microscope with a wider variety of features than are found in expensive 3D confocal microscopes, and, for a fraction of the cost.
