Genoa Instruments

Access super-resolution imaging

After 10 years of academic research on new microscopy techniques, detectors, and image processing algorithms, Genoa Instruments aims to spread super-resolution live cell imaging combined with time-resolved spectroscopy to all research laboratories.

The company will commercialize a new confocal microscope based on Image Scanning Microscopy. Our microscope will be highly affordable and platform independent, allowing for tailored solutions as well as for the upgrade of existing widefield and confocal microscopes.

Our innovative super-resolution microscope will constitute a new paradigm in the field of optical microscopy, potentially establishing as the next generation confocal microscope.
