Revolutionary design has brought affordable confocal microscopy to a wider user community. Units attach to a conventional microscope and enable high quality 3D images to be acquired in real time.
Aurox lowers the cost of ownership significantly compared to that of a laser-based confocal microscope and, consequently, increases access to high-end 3-D microscopical imaging.
The Aurox approach is based on the use of structured illumination and detection, and aperture correlation. These new physical principles have made the imaging so light efficient that a laser is not needed.
Aurox received the Institute of Physics 2012 Innovation Award at its annual dinner. Prior to the presentation, a short film was shown that outlined Aurox's achievements. You can view it here.
