ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 1, 2011 — Optical technology provider Navitar Inc. has announced a licensing agreement with German optics manufacturer Carl Zeiss MicroImaging GmbH.

Under the terms of the agreement, Zeiss has license to Navitar’s Hoffman Modulation Contrast (HMC) for use in its iHMC product line. Zeiss will manufacture objectives, modulators, slit apertures and condensers using the technology and will distribute and sell them under the iHMC name.

Originally developed and patented by Dr. Robert Hoffman, HMC is a widely used light microscopy contrast method for viewing colorless and transparent biological specimens. Navitar received sole ownership of the trademark after its recent acquisition of Modulation Optics of Glen Cove.

Zeiss, a subsidiary of Carl Zeiss AG, manufactures microscope systems for biomedical research and the health care and high-tech sectors.
