Among other measurement technologies we have many microscopy techniques both for research and industrial use available. Currently we are developing lightsheet and two-photon microscopy solutions. We have many other advanced microscopy techniques available in our facility (AFM, SEM, LSM, DHM (digital holographic (quantitaive) microscopy), holographic optical tweezers, etc.). In the context of laboratory automation we have recently developed a high-throughput microscope that is able to scan microtiter plates at unprecedented speed.
