Overview

The Desktop Holographic Microscope uses a 405 nm laser as a light source to detect and analyze objects within a volume. Objects as small as 2 µm and as large as 2 mm can be accurately measured, imaged and counted.

Capture dynamic movement and time-dependent experiments.

Ideal for tracking moving samples through the depth of view.

Ideal for transparent and translucent fluid suspensions or dry samples up to several mm.

HD quality in 2D, 3D and 4D representations.

Benefits

Portable
Work at lab or in the field

Instant
Live imaging of samples without any manipulation

Effortless
No staining or prep work required

Compact
Minimal footprint in laboratory settings

Simple
No need to focus

Variety of Samples
Slides
Static Volumes of several mm3
Flow Cells to accommodate perfused solutions
