This allows you to quickly take an "eye-power" view of a glass microscope slide, using a smart phone camera. The resulting images can be used in "Tumor Board" or Clinical Pathology Conference (CPC) and for general teaching purposes. This is ideal for demonstrating sub-macroscopic details and features like the junction between tumor and normal structures.


  • Download and print.

  • Place a slide in the holder with the label down to obscure the label.

  • Put a piece of white plastic (cut up plate will work).

  • Take picture as close as focal point of smart phone camera will allow.

I used an Up!3D printer with design in trueSpace.
