Public Analyst Scientific Services Using New KEYENCE Digital Microscope for Food Tests

This KEYENCE Digital Microscope is invaluable to Public Analyst Scientific Services, as it helps with the production of detailed images of foreign bodies. These images are often included in sample reports where a clear and detailed image is important for end clients.

“After consideration, we decided to acquire a VHX Series Digital Microscope from KEYENCE” says Emma Downie, a public analyst at Public Analyst Scientific Services. “This Digital Microscope was a new acquisition for us, and we selected this product primarily for its comprehensive imaging capabilities.” The VHX Series Digital Microscope is very easy to set up and use on a daily basis, whilst not compromising the Microscope’s overall capabilities.

Other benefits of the VHX Series include real-time depth composition achieved without the need to actually adjust the focus of the device. The Microscope delivers images of unprecedented clarity and texture, thanks to a high resolution HDR offering 256 times the information of a normal 8-bit digital image. Balancing out brightness levels and improving contrast simultaneously is key to delivering excellent viewing results.

“The measurement features also help provide more information that could not be obtained easily otherwise” says Downie. “For example, a radius of curvature of a fragment of glass allows us to estimate the size of the object the fragment has come from.”

The engineers at KEYENCE are always ready to solve issues and answer technical questions about the company’s products. The VHX Series Digital Microscope is often seen as a strategic acquisition – a game changer, in other words.
