Outline

Our Super-Resolution Fluorescence Microscopy (SRFM) technology makes the nano-scale world visible in this one compact piece of equipment. Its small size, ease of use and ability to function in any environment - unlike current microscopes which require a dark room - make it unique in its field. The SRFM captures substances such as proteins, genes and cells, greatly contributing to studies in various fields like cancer research and regenerative medicine. It enables researchers to more effectively diagnose diseases like Alzheimers, where specific proteins lead to particular symptoms.
