Hirox Optical Excellence

Hirox is a leading provider of digital microscopy products for materials research. The company history started nearly 100 years ago, as Hirox started producing lenses already in 1920. 

Since then, Hirox has been a front runner and technology leader with multiple patents. We are also proud to be the inventor of video microscopy in 1985.
Our high quality optical, mechanical, and lighting designs give the Hirox 3D Digital Video Microscope Systems the highest optical inspection power (10.000x), along with a variety of options and adapters, including the 3D rotary head adapter.

Our experience as lens makers allows us to make high quality lenses that have a large depth of field and can create high resolution images.

As lens makers, we believe that a good optical image is much more important than an image that is the result of digital enhancement.
An image based on optics retains a clear original image without having any damage done by digital enhancement in order to create a good image.
That’s why the Hirox systems offer the most beautiful and the most accurate images that can be displayed by a 3D Digital Video Microscope!
