When not using the SCiO Shade during a scan, SCiO should be held steady 0.5 inches, or 1cm, from the object you wish to scan during the scan.
When using the Shade for scanning, the Shade should be held as close as possible to the object (touching).
When using the shade, it is acceptable to touch the sample. Otherwise, keep SCiO with the Shade as close as possible (less than 1mm/0.1”) from the sample.
