Tips for Optimizing LabCam Results

You can take a photo or start/stop a recording using the volume button of your headphones when connected to the iPhone.

Whole Slide Scan
Celly.AI allows automatic whole slide scan. The artificial intelligence algorithms will track the movement of the slides and automatically stitch different views of the images together.

White Balance
Dimming the light source of the microscope will help when adjusting your white balance. Celly.AI will also allow automatic adjustment of white balance.

Auto-focusing has a range on the phone. Using the focus on the microscope in a combination of tapping the screen for auto focus will achieve the best result.

There are many tools that allow more control than an iPhone camera on its own. FiLMIC Pro is one of them. You can also share/transfer photos to your computer easily with Dropbox or AirDrop. Celly.AI allows whole slide scan, automatic blood cell count, and malaria detection.
