PRO-MLS Motorized Microscope Stand
PRO-MLS is a motorized heavy-duty stand suitable for microscopy as well as macro focus stacking applications. Almost any stereomicroscope can be motorized using PRO-MLS stand. The stand can be computer controlled by Deep Focus software module for automatic creating of fully focused (EDF) images.
