Why there’s nothing quite like DotLens

Every dotlens we’ve made – and we mean every single one – was built on the same belief. That a microscope should be more than a scientific instrument in a laboratory. That, above all, a microscope should be absolutely simple, beautiful, and magical to use.

It should not be limited to any hardware, or require you to have an insane amount of attachments, clips, screws, magnets, and barrels, and should not weigh as much as a gallon of milk.

It’s that kind of thinking that also enabled us to create the world’s most innovative microscope lens. A lens that makes it easy to take insanely great microscopic images. Like “How did you even do that?” great. So when you just want to point and shoot and get a photo of that weird grasshopper-moth-beetle thing that just landed over there, you can just pop it on and you’re ready to go.

Our expertise in optics and materials engineering allowed us to blend together a vat of secret sauce that we make all our lenses with. With 99.9% optical transmission in the visible wavelength, no yellowing under the sun even for extended periods of time, and super-adhesive yet easily-removable material to just stick on to your camera device. What that means is, you don’t actually have to know what that means. All you have to do is use it to see that taking photos and videos with a DotLens is really. Flippin’. Amazing.

Also amazing? The fact that each dotlens is meticulously handcrafted. And each and every one was quality checked and approved by a team of real live humans with precision optics experience, and great ideas. So whether your thing is writing up the world’s best classroom report, or going on a two week field analysis trip, you’re totally set.

And while there a lots of things you want with DotLens, there’s one you definitely don’t: defects. (“Defects” is what you call dust or cracks that build up on the lens and compromise image quality). Our special material is naturally adhesive yet hydrophobic, which means that a gentle rub with your fingers under running water will give you a lens that looks like new!

Quality is quality. It’s why we invented our DSCF checking system (diameter-size-curvature-focal length). A painstakingly engineered sensing system that ensures each and every lens we print conforms to the highest level of quality. Everything else is discarded.
