📲 Download the app

The app requires iOS version 13+ and iPhone model 8 or higher.

✅ Get an adapter

Before you start, you should get an optical adapter to connect your phone to the microscope.
The adapter is compatible with 99% types of lab microscopes
Celly supports the LabCam Ultra adapter. Compatibility with other adapters is not guaranteed
Attach your iPhone to the eyepiece of a microscope. Put the sample, turn on the light, set the lens focus.
To get the best image quality, set the microscope light to the maximum

🔬 Start your first test

  • Let's check the app settings - push the gear icon in the right bottom corner to open the menu. If you're using the LabCam Pro adapter (older version), set the Adapter = LabCam Pro. Leave the other settings as they are. Tap the main screen to return.
  • Next step - set the test type. Open the test configuration panel (left bottom corner). Tap on the pre-configured test.
