DOIT 3D Micro official launch approaching

Doitplenoptic will bring you very soon the first plenoptic ocular: DOIT 3D MICRO. This device is placed in the microscope eyepiece port and allows you to convert your microscope into a 3D microscope. No matter which brand you are using, if you need 3D information, you get it right away by inserting our plenoptic eyepiece!

We have a highly qualified R&D team and scientific advisory of Manuel Martínez-Corral and Genaro Saavedra, co-directors of the Image and 3D Display Laboratory of the University of Valencia. We have been working together since 2018th to develop the technology behind the eyepiece.

DOIT 3D Micro and Lightfield technology

Plenoptic photography, also known as integral imaging or lightfield imaging, consists of recording multiple perspectives of a 3D scene through an array of lenses. This way, the three-dimensional information is stored with single shotD allowing to register 3d images in real-time.DOIT® (Digital Optical Imaging Technology) is based on a paradigm shift in the capture of the plenoptic information. Conventional plenoptic systems capture low-resolution images close to the lens array; DOIT’s technology does it virtually at infinity with an improved lateral and axial resolution and higher depth of field.

Over this paradigm shift, DOIT® has developed a universal, versatile, affordable, and handy device: The DOIT 3D Micro eyepiece.

  • DOIT 3D Micro eyepiece can be used with any microscope,
  • Thanks to DOIT®, microscopists get seamless integration working with the objectives in the nosepiece,
  • Zero complexity, little investment, great results.

Stay attend to the launch of our device! DOIT 3D Micro will be available on the market very soon, and if you want to be one of the first users, do not hesitate to contact us.

The 3D microscope for all is coming!

The first lightfield eyepiece for 3D microscopy

Great news for all microscopists! Our close-to-market prototype is almost ready! It’s been an exciting journey since BeAble Capital discovered the work that full professors Manuel Martínez-Corral and Genaro Saavedra together with our CTO Ángel Tolosa and other members of the 3DDisplayLab where developing.

Like many other breakthroughs, the idea behind it was simple but genius. Instruments with an ocular port are intended to be used by humans. But what if instead of a human eye, the observer is a machine?

A digital insect compound eye

See the microscopic world through the eyes of an insect

Similar to an insect compound eye, our plenoptic or lightfield technology uses microlenses to get different perspectives from the scene. As you might already know, 3D vision in our case is based on stereoscopic vision. We get a couple of images with slight parallax and our brain reconstructs the 3D scene.

Our eyepiece obtains multiple perspectives and the computer (the device’s brain) based on software algorithms, reconstructs the 3D microscopic information of the scene. This allows your conventional microscope to get 3D information from one ocular and 2D information from the other.

Convert your microscope into a 3D digital imaging microscope

As you can see in the picture below, the DOIT 3D Micro lightfield eyepiece is a cost-effective, easy-to-use, plug&play, and portable device that can be used in all microscopes provided with a standard ocular port.

Microscope 3D add-on

After the eyepiece is attached, the software process the optical information for 3D real-time image visualization and manipulation. Thanks to its different modules, the 3D image is presented in different ways that enhance diverse characteristics of the scene and its depth, such as views from several observation points, visualization of occlusions, selection of the focus plane along with the depth of field, an image with all planes focused at once, a depth map or topography of the surface of the inspected object, among others.

The system is very useful in many applications and is aimed at microscopy users who need high-quality 3D information from 1 micron (based on the native resolution of the microscope where it is coupled): researchers, technology centers, universities, R&D and inspection/QC departments, forensic work, …

Become a pioneer using the 3D lightfield microscope eyepiece!

Incredible, isn’t it? We know many microscopy users are tired of complex techniques and they just want to focus on their job instead of becoming physics experts. 3D microscopy solutions nowadays require many hours of training, bulky settings, and painful sample preparation, which increases the process times and the risk of undesired outcomes. And on top of that, big amounts of money investment!

We want to help scientists and technicians get rid of all of the above! We are now opening a pre-order period for a limited number of collaborators to do final testing on real application environments. If you have the right pioneer mindset, want to be the first of many, like to collaborate for the progress and easy access to science and, want to save some good money in the meantime… Join us!
