iProbe for iPad

About

The iProbe for iPad software provides a new flexible and intuitive way to control up to twelve micromanipulators through six orders of magnitude. It allows three-dimensional control via swipe inputs on the iPad's touch screen. Your finger tip is in direct control of the probe tips.

The iPad app allows for various probe tip configurations with a user-defined arrangements of control areas for each tip.

The user never needs to stop and think about which manipulator should be moved next - simply touch it with your finger tip and drag it into position.

The iPad app communicates with a server PC which is configured once after which point it can be hidden away behind the microscope. The server PC sends SEM imagery to the iPad's screen while simultaneously transcribing the swipe inputs from its touch screen into serial commands for the micromanipulator's NanoControl units.
