The Mantis Compact is an ergonomic 3D imaging stereo microscope featuring no eyepiece to reduce user fatigue and promote high-quality work.


Key Features & Benefits


2x, 4x, 5x and 8x quick change magnification options
Patented eyepiece-less design eliminates user fatigue and boosts productivity
Long working distance and large field of view
Crisp, true-to-life colour LED illumination
Choice of stands to suit variety of applications




The Mantis Compact is a true stereo microscope, with the added benefit of no eyepieces. Twin optical paths pass through the patented optics of the Mantis, exiting the single viewing lens as separate (stereo) optical paths, just as they would with a conventional stereo microscope.


There is no magic, no electronic manipulation, just a high contrast, high resolution microscope image, without the hassle of eyepieces.




The Mantis Compact is a popular choice for a wide range of industries including:


– Precision magnification tasks
– Quality control
– Electronics inspection
– Medical, including CSSD
– Dental rework
– Hair restoration
– Jewellery & watchmaking
– Art & antiquities


Improved Ergonomics = Increased Productivity + Profits


Designed with an ergonomic body position, the Mantis Compact offers ease of use, comfort and significantly reduces user fatigue. With no microscope eyepieces, operators achieve greater hand-eye coordination, increased throughput, accuracy and reduced scrap and rework.


Offering effortless 3D viewing, the apparent distance to the viewed object image is identical to that of the real object, which eliminates re-focussing of the operator’s eye and thus reduces eyestrain and fatigue.


Businesses choose Mantis because they know their operators are more efficient, more accurate and more productive. Businesses reap the benefits of better quality of work, increased productivity and profits.
