Bruker’s suite of fluorescence microscopy systems provides a full range of solutions for life science researchers. Bruker’s super-resolution microscopes are setting new standards for throughput and creating new opportunities for live cell imaging. Our multiphoton imaging systems provide the imaging depth, speed and resolution required for intravital imaging applications in neuroscience, oncology and immunology. Our confocal systems enable cell biologists to study function and structure using live-cell imaging in cell cultures and invertebrate model organisms at speeds and durations previously not possible.

Luxendo, a spin-off from EMBL in Heidelberg and now part of Bruker, is leading in commercializing advanced Single Plane Illumination Microscopes (SPIM). Our systems enable new research approaches in embryology, live-cell imaging, brain development, cleared sample studies, and optogenetics applications. SPIM technology significantly increases sampling speed at high resolution, while reducing damaging side effects on the living specimen. Luxendo’s modular concept includes multiple light-sheet geometries and solutions, reflecting the adaption to diverse requirements of different applications. This adaption delivers 3D fluorescence imaging data in an amazing quality.

With over 100 years expertise in the field, Nikon has always been at the forefront of optical and technological innovation. Now, as a key component of the Nikon Corporation Healthcare Business Division, the Nikon Microscope Solutions unit is focused on developing cutting edge imaging technologies for the academic research lab and the biotech and pharma industry, as well as providing the clinical and educational communities with leading imaging solutions. Nikon continues to grow and expand with the recent launches of the LIPSI high content imaging platform, A1 HD25 confocal microscope and N-SIM S Super Resolution microscope. Nikon's LIPSI provides full incubation from sample storage to image acquisition. This flexible open platform can easily evolve to meet changing research needs. The A1 HD25 captures images with a 25 mm field of view, nearly twice the area of conventional point scanners, and extending the detectable area of cellular responses and increasing image capture speed. The N-SIM S Super Resolution Microscope is a unique high-speed structured illumination system that achieves acquisition speeds of up to 15 fps, enabling fast biological processes to be captured at twice the spatial resolution of conventional light microscopes.
