For macro imaging, the lab contains a Smith-Victor tabletop shooting table with a Canon EOS Rebel T6i camera mounted on a lever-controlled carriage system.  The carriage system is secured to a column constructed of heavy duty extruded aluminum.  This column is designed for low-vibrations for sharp imaging and contains a printed height scale.  Using the lever, the height of the carriage may be adjusted.  The camera is also hooked up to a computer to allow for remote shooting using dedicated software.

For illumination, the stand also contains two adjustable mounting arms holding compact flat panel LED lights.  The LED lights have a CRI of 95 to ensure accurate color rendition.
