CytoViva’s enhanced darkfield microscope optics improve signal-to-noise up to ten times (10x) over standard darkfield optics. This enables nanomaterials as small as 10nm-20nm to be imaged right from your laboratory benchtop.
CytoViva’s patented (US patents No. 7,542,203, 7,564,623) enhanced darkfield illumination system, which replaces the standard microscope condenser, works by coupling the source illumination directly to the condenser optics.
Producer: CytoViva, USA
A modular configuration which allows the users to:
- With the Enhanced Illumination Module: CytoViva’s enhanced darkfield microscopy enables scientists to optically observe a wide range of nanoscale materials quickly and easily in solution, live cells, tissue and materials based matrices. In addition, non-fluorescent live cells and pathogens can be easily observed at a level of detail not possible with traditional optical imaging techniques such as phase contrast or differential interference contrast.

- The Dual Mode Fluorescence (DMF) Module allows for the observation of both fluorescent and non-fluorescent sample portions simultaneously and in real-time. Samples are viewed directly through the microscope eyepiece and captured using a standard microscope camera without the need for complicated software or electronic manipulation.
