Bruker Acquires Emerging Light Sheet Microscopy Company Luxendo


Bruker announced that it has acquired Luxendo, a privately held spin-off of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory that develops and manufactures proprietary light-sheet fl uores- cence microscopy instruments.


Luxendo’s proprietary single-plane illumination microscopy (SPIM) technique signifi cantly reduces sampling times over conventional laser scanning confocal microscopes, while reducing phototoxicity and damaging side eff ects on living specimens. T is SPIM technology also enables the fastest scan speeds for volumetric imaging of small organisms, cell monolayers, and cleared tissue.

Etaluma and DRVISION’s Partnership Combines Lumascope Live Cell Imaging with Aivia Image Visualization and Analysis


Etaluma and DRVision’s partnership combines the power of imaging by Etaluma’s inverted LS microscopes and DRVision’s Aivia image visualization analysis and data exploration technology. Together these products provide a powerful turnkey solution for microscopy-based assays, and especially live cell assays performed within incubators and hypoxia chambers. The products will enable users to benefit from a complete workflow from image acquisition to visual- ization and advanced analysis.

Microscope Can Scan Tumors During Surgery and Examine Cancer Biopsies in 3D


For many types of cancer, there is no reliable way to determine during surgery whether the excised tissue is completely cancer-free at its margins. A new microscope invented by a team of University of Washington mechanical engineers and pathologists could help solve this and other problems. It can rapidly and non-destructively image the margins of large fresh tissue specimens with the same level of detail as traditional pathology in no more than 30 minutes.
