WaterScope has launched an open source, 3D printable “OpenFlexure” microscope for testing water quality, powered by a Raspberry Pi 3.

A Cambridge University spinoff called WaterScope has launched a low-cost, 3D printable microscope called OpenFlexure. The open source microscope, which is controlled by a Raspberry Pi 3 SBC, is designed for low-cost water testing in the developing world. Non-profit charity organization Oxfam has begun testing the beta-stage kit.

The OpenFlexure microscope is available for 50 Pounds ($61) in a Microscope Kit V1 that also includes a water sampling kit, a Raspberry Pi camera module V2, and Raspbian Linux based image processing software. Users need to bring their own RPi board and 16GB microSD card.
