Our Story

Founded in 1988, MIS has been providing microscope imaging solutions for over twenty-five years.  Founder and CEO Seth Grotelueschen has served in that role since the company’s inception.

Twenty-seven years ago it was quite a challenge to acquire microscope images and “get them into a computer”.  Early MIS research and development efforts resulted in the initial product roll-out of the DOS-based “PAX” (Picture, Archival, Transmission) System in 1991.  This groundbreaking product allowed clients to capture images from a microscope-mounted video camera and digitize & catalog that image into a PC using our PAX system.   This legacy product led to the 1994 release of the very popular PAX-it imaging software using the Windows OS.

Today, MIS continues to lead the microscopic imaging marketplace with innovative products including our PAXcam family of digital microscope cameras and the PAX-it microscopic imaging software.  More images have been viewed, captured, measured, analyzed and databased using PAX-it and PAXcams than any other product!

At MIS, we are proud that tens of thousands of users around the world rely on PAXcam Microscope Cameras and PAX-it image analysis software in their laboratories.  Our clients span a wide variety of microscopic imaging application areas, including life sciences, material science, microelectronics, law enforcement, clinical pathology, anatomical pathology, weld measurement, paint and coatings, education, aerospace, automotive, pharmaceutical, petrography, failure analysis inspection imaging, and a host of other fields.

We thank you for your interest in our company and products and we hope we have the opportunity to serve you!
