Press Release: International patent of the Fluorescent-Holographic microscope is submitted

Based on its previous Hungarian Patent submission, MTA SZTAKI has submitted an international (PCT)  patent for its fluorescent-holographic microscope. The invention combines fluorescent microscopy with digital holographic microscopy technology.

The new device and method enables the extension of the traditionally planar fluorescent microscope to 3D inspection for rare transparent samples. The new optical arrangement can separately mark the fluorescent and the auto-fluorescent objects captured by the digital holographic microscope in moving 3D liquid samples. The new volumetric microscope was invented in the Computational Optical Sensing and Processing Laboratory of SZTAKI.
