British Nanopsis Technology Transformed Optical Microscope Power

According to the sources, a British invention ‘Nanopsis Technology’ has reformed the humble optical microscope. This is possible by expanding its increase power to a level far beyond what could previously be achieved with visible light. With the help of the modern technology which makes possible to view the structure of viruses with a regular microscope. The modern technique does not require electron beams to observe small objects. Expertise goes beyond their own expectation and they superbly build their own benchmark. Scientist combines a traditional lens with tiny transparent beads to see any small object through an optical microscope.

The modern technology has capabilities to do the same job as highly expensive equipment usually only found in universities. The Manchester Science Park based start-up company LIG Nanowise’s developer stated that the Nanopsis microscope could be visionary in drug discovery, cancer research as well as microelectronics areas. A commercial director and Project leader Mr. Alex Sheppard said, “We have invented a superlens technology which increases the magnification of the regular optical microscope by four times. This allows you to see structures which are 90 nanometers where a regular optical microscope is limited to seeing 200-nanometer structures by limitations in physics”. Chairman of LIG Nanowise, Professor Lin Li said, “Researchers can use our microscopes to validate samples and carry out routine work in their own laboratory without having to waste valuable time booking into an imaging center”. Professor Lin Li stated that Nanopsis technology could be used by anyone with basic undergraduate scientific training.
