Holographic Microscopy

Overview

Overview

Our microscopes use a laser (A) and camera (B) to image, count, size and characterize objects in any body of water within the sample area (C).

 

Resolution extends to objects as small as 0.5 µm and as large as 3 mm.

 

Our software generates live 3D & 4D holograms (D).
