The EPIC Wetlab setup is new as of spring 2021.   This slimmed down version of our popular EPIC microscope comes packed in a Seahorse case which is easy to transport or take a checked luggage on an airplane.  The microscope is easy and quick to adjust for any height of surgical simulator or wetlab eye model and runs off of 110 V or 12V battery just like the EPIC II microscope.

 epicii backThe EPIC II microscope was released in January 2019 and is being used for cataract missions in operating rooms all around the world.   The EPIC II is our second generation portable microscope which has been vetted by 100s of ophthalmologists and used for 1000s of cataract surgeries.      Most all of the improvements in this generation were stimulated by changes requested by our ophthalmologist users.   



epic batteryOne of the most innovative parts of our EPIC system is our custom LED lighting system.  You will find that the color temperature of the LED is virtually identical to the Halogen system that you are used to.  In addition, it is low power consuming and allows the EPIC microscope to run nearly 24 hours straight on our battery power.

The battery may be charged at the end of the day or during the day while using the microscope however, if the power does go out, there is not even a flicker of your lighting since the battery continues to power the microscope.  In addition, the microscope can be powered by a car battery with our 12V battery connector cable.

The idea for a better portable microscope has been born out of necessity as the airline industry has continued to decrease the size and weight requirements for luggage.  In the past, the way weight has been addressed is to consider a table mounted microscope or a Tripod floor system.  Both of these styles have their issues and at the beginning we decided that neither of these mounting systems was desired.
