Focus on Microscopy

We are at the FOCUS ON MICROSCOPY conference in Porto this week! Our team is thrilled to present our novel NOCTUA stimulated Raman imaging system, which allows for highly specific imaging of living cells without the need for fluorescent labels. By exciting intrinsic molecular bonds in the specimen, we can provide novel insights into cellular processes like lipid metabolism and pharmacokinetics. Come meet Niklas Lüpken and Max Brinkmann to see how we can upgrade your microscope and take your research to the next level!

Refined Laser Systems raised 2.7 Mio. € to diagnose cancer in minutes

Very exciting news from Refined Laser Systems! We’ve developed an innovative microscopy procedure that can support pathology in diagnosing cancer within minutes and avoid revision surgeries. With funding led by High-Tech Gründerfonds and APEX Ventures, alongside Onsight VenturesNRW.BANK, Papst Venture Capital, we’re able to develop an intraoperative microscope that identifies tumor margins directly in the surgery room. With a diagnosis within minutes by a remote pathologist and AI assistance, we’re changing the game for cancer diagnosis. We are very grateful for the support and guidance of our investors and business angels, including Thomas Merk, former EVP of leading laser manufacturer Coherent, Hans-Michael Hauser, former partner at BCG, and biophotonics expert Dr. Werner Falkenstein. A huge thank you to our team, mentors, friends, and supporters for helping us reach this great milestone!

Optica Biophotonics Congress

Currently Max Brinkmann is on his way to the Optica Biophotonics Congress taking place from the 24.4. – 27.4. in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. An international forum focusing on technological solutions for medical challenges and applications where in the back of the minds of many attendees will be the question of clinical translation—of how to take a promising technology out of the lab, and get it into the hands of physicians to the benefit of patients. He will present our solutions for „High-Content Cell and Tissue Imaging With Stimulated Raman Scattering Microscopy“ to the audience. We are excited to engage with all of you finally in person again!
