Company Information

High-throughput optical microscopy is transforming the science of modern biology – from genetics to drug discovery to synthetic biology. It is rapidly improving efficiency and opening up new possibilities across a wide range of applications.

However, scientists today are fundamentally constrained by the limited perspective of traditional microscopes. As field-of-view increases, resolution decreases. Yet modern biology requires an ability to capture precise data across larger areas and at multiple points in time to understand dynamic systems and reduce costs by accelerating tedious workflows.

We’re on a mission to expand the field of view for researchers, startups, and industry while preserving resolution and streamlining automated workflows.
