Summit-FAS uses Leica™ stereo zoom microscopes with built in 5 Megapixel camera for sample examination and photo documentation of samples. This microscope has advanced optics and the integrated camera functions with processing software to quickly capture, process, store, and export images of sample cuttings. The images can be inserted into email reports or imported into the various mudlog formats. The advanced optics are an excellent tool for viewing sample cutting lithology, color, grain size, carbonate texture, porosity, accessory minerals, and oil stain.
Combined with the 0-35X zoom feature, more detail can be viewed and described on the mudlogs and corresponding photos at the zoom magnification can be obtained and shared.
