Technology to use any standard microscope for correlative imaging

Project description

Using any microscope for correlative imaging

Data acquisition has produced a driving demand for advanced instrumentation and technology. The EU-funded CLS project has developed a landmark product that allows researchers to use any microscope or imaging device for correlative imaging. The project will help understand and resolve scientific and industrial problems where microscopes are required. CLS is groundbreaking in that it fully integrates standard experimental and imaging inflows, without requiring additional verification. The product is a game changer in laboratories that want to use correlative imaging but cannot afford it. The product will tap into the EUR 27 billion microscopy and spectroscopy market.


An increasing demand for high-quality research forces a research community to find new ways of data acquisition. An important part of the scientific results is data acquired from imaging devices. Imaging using various types of microscopy and spectroscopy are the essential techniques used in many types of research in both academia and industry. Imaging of a single sample can be performed using a number of imaging techniques subsequently and the collected data can be correlated.
Imaging devices used for correlative imaging are often very sophisticated and require very high initial investments, which most of the laboratories cannot afford. This results in very limited access to the correlative imaging techniques.
We have developed and now provide a revolutionary product which allows researchers to use any microscope and any imaging technique for correlative imaging to help to understand and solve the scientific and industrial problems where microscopy is required. Our breakthrough solution fully integrates with the standard experimental and imaging workflows. Hence it doesn’t require any additional verification or validations prior to imaging. Correscopy enables you to get scientific insights which you could never get before.
Correscopy is a game changer for the laboratories which want to use correlative imaging and could never afford it, and for those laboratories which wanted to use the techniques that were never available in the correlative microscopes.
The global microscopy and spectroscopy market is worth more than 27 billion Euro and grows at CAGR of 5,6%. Moreover, the global market for microscope accessories is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2015 to 2020.
We have established a clear timeline for commercialization and signed a number of agreements with partners to make this plan feasible. We have an interdisciplinary and dedicated team to make Correscopy and its products available on the market.
