The GIGAmacro Magnify2 system is specifically designed for creating gigapixel resolution imagery of macroscopic and microscopic subjects. The complete turn-key system provides the robotics, optics, camera, software, and computing power to create gigapixel macro images with ease. It combines the latest imaging advancements, software, hardware, and online gigapixel viewing into one system at an affordable price.
Extreme Resolution & Focus
Image entire subjects with astounding resolution and depth of field. Combines focal stacking, image stitching, 3D depthmaps, robotics, and online viewing in one system.
Complete Turn-key System
Includes robotics, optics, flash system, software, online viewing, camera, computer, monitor, and support.
Automated Batch Capture
Digitize a set of parts, specimens, and slides with automation tools built into the capture software.
Accommodates a wide variety of subject type and sizes in a single system. Choose from many different camera, lens, and lighting options to suit your needs.
View, annotate, compare, measure, and present your images online with the GIGAmacro Viewer much like a Google map.
The standard system is designed for maximum flexibility and cost efficiency. Depending on your application, the system can be configured with different camera, lens, and lighting options. Custom systems are available for clean room applications, larger subjects, and specialized applications.

Transmissive Lighting (Backlighting) Option
Lighting the subject from the back dramatically expands the capabilities of the Magnify2 system. Use it for digitizing slides, x-rays, semi-translucent parts, or simply brightening the background of your subject.Learn More
Batch Digitization Templates
Image multiple subjects in a single batch using digitization templates. Each subject is saved individual project with its own data folder.Learn More
Use cross polarization to reduce glare on subjects and for special applications such as geology thin section slides. The effect is dramatic and useful for a variety of applications.Learn More
Nikon Toolmakers Objectives
The finite microscope objectives are telecentric (parallax free), have an outstanding working distance, and produce crisp images.Learn More
