Fast Track 100

Three quarters of all life science research is performed using microscopy but existing products are limited in imaging resolution which means that researchers cannot see the fine details of living organisms. Oxford Nanoimaging, spun out from Oxford University and with an overseas office in California, has developed a portable, compact-sized microscope capable of observing individual molecules within living cells. The Nanoimager microscope has its roots in the discoveries that won the 2014 Nobel Prize for Chemistry and is now generating interest from life sciences researchers and pharma companies worldwide. It recently completed its third funding round in July for an undisclosed sum from investors including Oxford Sciences Innovation to support its vision of making microscopy accessible to everyone.
