Last year we heard from Brad Amos on smartphone cameras for microscopy and the marvellous WaterScope on their 3D-printed, Raspberry Pi camera powered microscope. This year we’re stepping up a notch to look at DIY approaches to better microscopes, from automation to novel imaging techniques and even some more expensive (not so DIY ) kit that illustrates benefits of custom approaches to imaging.
