THE IPM Scope digital IPM camera from Spectrum Technologies helps identify and track plant pests such as aphids and diseases such as Asian soybean rust. The IPM Scope camera captures and magnifies images or video by 40 to 140 times. The enhanced digital images can then be up-loaded to a personal computer through a simple USB connection for e-mailing to industry partners for quick identification. An LED light illuminates the sample.
Software is included that allows the user to edit or enhance photos by adding labels and measurements. Other features include 4-micron resolution and 640 × 480 pixels.
