Mitsubishi produces a product line that should be measured from a "price I performance" standpoint. The high resolution lR-M500 is now affordable in areas historically precluded. The size and weight of the lR-M500 make it operate more like a camcorder than the traditional laboratory equipment of the past. The days of lab coats, gloves, and protective eyewear will soon to be gone forever. Mitsubishi is committed to the U.S. market and plans to continue to announce new products and improved technologies.
