The value measured by the 3D Cell Explorer is not fluorescence intensity of an exogenous molecule like with most optical microscopes. In contrast, Nanolive’s technology detects the physical refractive index of the different cell parts with resolution far beyond the diffraction limit (see Nobel prize 2014 for chemistry). As the Nanolive’s microscope, the 3D Cell Explorer, can be handled with without special training, the company has developed unique software called STEVE.

Every Cell is unique and has its own complex structure. We have developed a disruptive technology which, for the first time, allows users to explore the inside of a living cell in 3D without the need for any labeling or other invasive methods.

The 3D Cell Explorer is a high speed, high resolution and non-invasive tool that can look deep inside biological systems. This allows you to record stunning 3D images of entire cells in just seconds and with...

With the 3D Cell Explorer, researchers, students and medical doctors can directly experience what happens inside the living cell – in real time!
