What's a Make-roscope®?

Proven to be effective during online classes, even a piece of pivotal laboratory equipment for Filipino students as they explore and learn about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) during face-to-face classes.


The Make-roscope is an affordable, ultra-portable keychain microscope that can be placed on the front camera of any smartphone or tablet, magnifying organisms from 125X to 400X. The Make-roscope provides an alternative to compound light microscopes which are used by over 12 million Filipino students per year.





“Kits” are introduced and combined with the Make-roscope where prepared specimen slides, and accessories to obtain samples such as pipettes, tweezers, and tubes are included in the said kit.


Currently, over 3000 Filipino students and teachers are using the keychain microscope.
