Light Engine for lithography and cybergenetics

Use the convergence of optogenetics and lithography!

IN-VISION is a leader in the development of innovative solutions for the convergence of optogenetics and lithography. Our cutting-edge technologies provide researchers and practitioners with tools to explore cellular mechanisms in greater depth and fabricate intricate microstructures with unrivalled precision.

"Imagine a UV-light projector that exposes structures with the highest precision ever seen and enables you to analyse what was exposed at the same time"

Florian Zangerl - CEO IN-VISION

HELIOPORA combines the accuracy and reliability of an industrial UV light projector with a wide range of objectives, enabling precise exposures with almost any pixel size. This makes it an ideal tool for cybergenetics and optogenetics research, where high-resolution imaging under a high-power spotlight is crucial for analyzing genetic data and biological structures.

The connection to a CMOS camera eliminates the need to switch between the projector and microscope, and image recognition software can even be used to realise a closed-loop system. This integration of bioengineering technology opens up completely new horizons for working with light, facilitating more efficient and precise experimentation and analysis in various research fields.
