The World-Wide Leader in Hyperspectral Microscopy

Since 2005, CytoViva has helped hundreds of research and industry laboratories solve critical problems at the nanoscale with its state of the art hyperspectral microscope technology.

CytoViva provides hyperspectral imaging solutions from the visible to near infrared range, which are specifically designed to work with all modalities of optical microscopy. This includes CytoViva’s patented enhanced darkfield microscope optics, fluorescence and standard brightfield microscopy.

A hyperspectral microscope is unique in its ability to capture optical spectral data in every pixel of the microscopic sample image. The hyperspectral microscope enables comparative spectral review, spectral mapping and other analysis of different elements within a sample. These sample materials can include fluorescent, plasmonic or other light scattering materials as well as live cell and tissue samples.


Unmatched Darkfield Microscopy for Nanoscale Samples

CytoViva’s enhanced darkfield optics are unmatched in their ability to enable optical imaging of nanomaterials as small as 10nm1. These darkfield microscope optics were specifically designed to provide nanotechnology scientists with an easy and effective way to observe nanoparticles in biological or materials based environments. Most importantly, these patented enhanced darkfield optics are key to creating high signal-to-noise hyperspectral images and analysis of nanoscale sample elements.


Integrated Raman with Hyperspectral Imaging Microscope

CytoViva provides optical hyperspectral imaging with HORIBA Scientific’s XploRA Raman Microscope system. These technologies are integrated on a single microscope platform, enabling unmatched sample analysis with both optical spectroscopy and molecular spectral confirmation down to the nanoscale.
