We provide access to diverse instruments for different solutions in the life science research environment. These span areas from cell culture to microscopy, spectrometry approaches and protein crystallization/detection.

Our technologies are tailored to the requirements of both academic and applied research labs and have the potential to address uncovered niches in the life science instrumentation markets.

Fluorescence Learning Microscope
Fluorescence Learning Microscope (laptop not provided)

This innovative educational microscope provides educators the opportunity to teach fluorescence microscopy in classrooms through hands-on active learning. One of the key features of the microscope is that it can be assembled and disassembled piece-by-piece. This offers a hands-on, inquiry-based opportunity, allowing the user to visually understand the underlying physics of the microscope thus getting a deep understanding of the tool and the principles behind it.

The purchase includes one Fluorescence Learning Microscope kit and a complementary digital educational package containing teaching and learning materials for educators and students. Visit the webpage to learn more about the Fluorescence Learning Microscope and its scope in varied educational contexts.

Educators who have used our microscope kits in their classrooms say

  • The resource allows ‘‘students to use high end research technology while grasping the basic principles behind its function.’’
  • The resource provides ‘‘cutting-edge research experience in a nutshell.’’
  • The resource shows ‘‘care and effort to tune the educational resource to the needs of teachers, very versatile—an extremely helpful support of teaching.’’
Optional services (to be requested separately)
  • Individual, personal (online) assembly training in English (2 h)
    • content covered:
      • Building the microscope
      • Imaging samples
      • Tips and tricks with the microscope

Microscope incubator box and control device

This new technology provides an incubation system for optical microscopes. The system allows for control of CO2, temperature, humidity and is intended for time dependent observation of living cells under stabilized conditions. It is adaptable to different types of microscopes and lenses from various manufacturers.


EasyGrid – A device for automated preparation and quality control of CyroEM samples

Scientists at the EMBL Grenoble developed a prototype device that fully automates sample preparation for cryoEM using in-line plasma treatment, picolitre drop dispensers, jet vitrification, automated cryo-storage and embedded quality control.
