Microscope that provides a glimpse into living cells

Dear Sir or Madam,

Conventional optical microscopes are limited by the wavelength of light. That is why very small structures such as cell components, DNA molecules or proteins cannot be observed. Scientists from the research project ChipScope are currently working on a new generation of optical microscopes that use very small LEDs. They can be used as light sources to monitor the interior of living cells in real time. Get to know more about this new microscope in our current video.

Have a nice week!

Light microscope ChipScope - a glimpse into living cells

A microscope that is only a few millimeters in size and that can help to consider cell changes in real time. This is the goal of the EU project ChipScope. Scientists led by Dr. Hutomo Wasisto in Braunschweig help to make this project come true.

Not all lasers are the same – especially in the surgical field, it all depends on what’s inside: the different operational wavelengths of laser light also affect human tissue in different ways. This is why a single laser for a variety of applications drastically simplifies the job of physicians.
