Nanoscopix is a specialist in cryogenic laser applications in medical diagnostics and life sciences. We develop products for cryogenic fluorescence microscopy and cryogenic fluorescence spectroscopy. Our innovative technologies are based on the direct measurement of characteristic autofluorescence signals of biomolecules at ultra-deep temperatures (down to -263°C / 10 K). Such conditions inhibit random movement of molecules or formation of complex structures that would quench the autofluorescence in ambient settings.
Dresden, 04.03.2016. The LSI sponsored Nanoscopix team is starting its media campaign to recruit eligible beta-testers for the Cryo Micro Station (CMS) 3.1 today.
From 1 April until 31 May this year, participants will have the opportunity to use the low-temperature measuring cell in an enormous range of research projects, such as cell biology, pharmacology, materials research, environmental analysis and many more, at no cost.
Testers will receive free access to this new technology, and Nanoscopix will incorporate user feedback in the further development of the product.
Cryo Micro Station 3.1
The Cryo Micro Station (CMS) 3.1 provides fluorescence microscopy professionals with an extraordinary measuring cell that enables samples for analysis to be cooled in a vacuum to temperatures as low as 20 K, so that the auto-fluorescence of ‘molecules of interest’ can be rendered visible. The measuring cell can hold a Chamber Slide with up to 8 samples. The cooled samples can be examined in reproducible manner through a quartz glass inspection window (diameter 10 mm / thickness 0.8 mm). The XY-drive is mounted inside the cooled measuring cell and can be used for scanning a sample area of 50 x 25 mm (standard slides). It can be operated optionally with a joystick or by operator input.
