Our story

Founded in 2011 with a mission to make high-end microscopy technology accessible, we quickly achieved the necessary expertise to build top-tier systems that are indispensable for ground-breaking biological research.

Our products are supported globally by an experienced network of distributors of our branded products and integrated into prestigious and highly complex equipment, through OEM custom design or as a component.

Through our commitment to excellence, we aim to drive technological innovation in microscopy and to contribute to the advancement of scientific knowledge in various fields, including life sciences, materials research, and biomedical imaging.

We have recently taken a significant step towards a more sustainable future by prioritizing the creation of long-term economic, environmental, and social benefits for all stakeholders and generations to come.
