Navitar Life Sciences Inc.

BioPhotonics
Sep 2011
Navitar Life Sciences Inc., an affiliated entity of optics manufacturer Navitar Inc. of Rochester, N.Y., has agreed to acquire the assets of Modulation Optics, including its Hoffman Modulation Contrast (HMC) imaging technology. The Glen Cove, N.Y., company makes HMC microscope components and systems for use in live-cell imaging applications such as stem cell imaging, cancer studies, and embryo and sperm monitoring during in vitro fertilization procedures. The technology is used to view colorless and transparent biological specimens. The acquisition enables Navitar to expand its product offering beyond its mainstay ZFL fluorescence imaging optical systems. HMC will now be used in combination with Navitar’s other illumination techniques, such as differential interference contrast, dark field, bright field and fluorescence to achieve high-quality images. HMC can be applied to most objective lenses.
