Company Summary

Our proprietary technology (basic and broad patent), allows, for the first time, tomography of living cells, preparation-free, non-invasively, with 4x better resolution than conventional wide-field microscopy, and in color (specific to refractive index). We constructed a laboratory prototype at EPFL (Nature Photonics 7, 113-117, 2013) and are currently developing a portable demonstrator.
