Universal optical adaptor

10th October 2014

Technology is constantly changing, but now lab technicians won’t need to worry about whether their smartphone model will fit their optical adapter. The HookUpz universal adapter connects any smartphone to any optical device in seconds. 

It is compatible with all popular phones (except phablets - e.g. Samsung Galaxy Note and iPhone 6 Plus) and nearly all optics. It fits any smartphone with or without a case (users can even use a charging case for hours of continual, uninterrupted use). The universal adapter can be used on microscopes, binoculars, monoculars, spotting scopes, telescopes, night vision and more.

It is easy to use – no glue or complicated pieces are needed. Features include a self-centring clamp with release grips that can hold optics over a very large range of diameters for all types. The self-centring clamp means users don’t have to realign for different optics. HookUpz also fits a wide range of optics with an outer eyepiece diameter of 20-58mm. The releasable clamp allows users to let go of the device and the optic is automatically in place at the perfect alignment. Phone alignment only needs to be done once initially, with two point alignment lock knobs. It has a single arm phone clamp for easy and quick installation and removal of phone during repeated use.

HookUpz is small, portable and lightweight so users can take it anywhere and share images and videos captured using their microscope quickly and easily. The product is distributed in the UK by Agar Scientific
