Emerging applications in Life Science & Healthcare continue to represent a significant portion of the growth in the Microscopy market. The regenerative medicine industry, along with Optogenetics are utilizing new microscope platforms to be able to visualize, diagnose, and develop drugs/treatments at an increasing rate.
Regenerative medicine focuses on the generation and use of therapeutic stem cells and skin cells, as well as tissue/tissue engineering for the production of functional organs. Optogenetics uses light as a stimulus to control and monitor the activities of individual neurons in living tissue.
As the use of traditional optical microscopes have become limiting, applications in Digital Microscopy, Light Sheet Microscopy, Confocal Microscopy and others are incorporating precision motion systems to address new requirements. Higher resolution, increased magnification and other advanced features are being developed, based on the performance capabilities of precision motion control systems.
The ability to develop compact motion systems that can support an open frame design with embedded capabilities such as backlights and incubators are supporting a new generation of tabletop instruments.
Nanomotion designs and manufactures OEM Microscope stage configurations providing XY motion, rapid Z axis focus for managing cell terrain and integrated XYZ-Tip-Tilt for leveling, focusing and scanning. Our ability to integrate our stages with our high performance motion controls allows us to reach a wide range of motion performance in a compact form factor.
When disaster strikes, natural or man-made…
When borders need monitoring…
When search & rescue is required for missing persons…
Nanomotion’s Velox is providing unmatched visibility from above and within, to drone operators, based on Panoramic Scene Capture of (6) Full FOV/sec, with a user selectable matrix of N*M FOVs
Disasters, such as the collapse of a multi-story structure occurs, require emergency ground personnel rely on drones to perform search and rescue. As structures are not safe for ground personnel to enter, drones are deployed with both day & thermal imaging capability to search for survivors and other potential threats.
Environmental disasters, such as a Tsunami, Tornado, or Earthquake occurs, dictate the use of drones for providing essential visibility to identify victims, directing ground support to appropriate areas.
Nanomotion’s Velox provides unmatched performance for wide area assessment & terrain dominance based on its Panoramic capability and user configurable matrix. The Velox is gyro-stabilized so the EOIR cameras provide clear imagery, stabilizing to better than 80µradians.
