Inventor of Video Microscopy in 1985, Hirox Microscope Systems are
used by many museums worldwide for non-destructive inspection and measurement of any objects.
It can be used for research or for conservation and offers a unique versatility in its form, in the zoom range as well as in the illumination techniques.
Hirox 3D Digital Systems have been used to inspect prestigious masterworks, including Van Gogh, Vermeer, Munch, Rembrandt, Picasso and many more in museum such as the Louvre, the Rijksmuseum or the Tate for example.

The Hirox HRX-01 – 3D Digital Microscope – is a portable high resolution inspection device with 3D measurement capabilities, allowing magnification from 0,1x up to 10.000x. 

This equipment enables 2D and 3D measurement including height and depth of material, pigments, cracks, loss of material. 

The HRX-01 is also equipped with the new NPS (Nano Point Scanner), which is a non-contact confocal profilometer, allowing very accurate measurements including 3D surface and depth of transparent objects (suitable for varnish thickness measurements).

We recently developed a high resolution microscope scanner: the custom made stand with motorized XYZ axis captured the largest microscopic panorama ever (over 10 billion pixels) from the Girl with the Pearl Earring from Johannes Vermeer, at the Mauritshuis (during the “girl in the spotlight” project with Abbie Vandivere).

Hirox is also part of the Technical Research Team of the TEFAF in Maastricht.
