Device Compatibility

Most USB-C or Micro-USB (with OTG functionality) devices are compatible with our generation 2 microscopes. However we recommend the use of an officially supported device.  Note that a current version of google play services is required for our app.

IMPORTANT NOTE for Android 10:
Due to a bug in Android 10, devices with this version of Android used in conjunction with our external camera for the Microscope Digitalization, might not detect the camera properly.
If you are affected by this please try a manual install of this App with an included workaround until google fixes this Issue with a future Android update.
BB2 & FW mobile microscopes are not affected by this Android bug


These devices are continuously tested across each release of our App and Android carrier updates. This list will continue to grow based upon customer demand and on overall android device popularity.
