Hamilton Thorne has advanced its collaboration with ISee3D to market their single camera, single lens, single chip 3D microscope technology, currently under development.

The technology partnership aims to develop a single lens 3D microscope adapter of ISee3D that will result in the support of 3D display by research grade microscopes currently only capable of 2D.

The 3D lens provides researchers with a way to view cells and conduct scientific processes.

The adapter produces 3D imaging through the video channel via the camera’s optical port and is optimized for use in biological research.

The adapter provides a solution for this grade of camera/microscope configuration and can also be fitted with a universal adapter to support other microscopes.

Hamilton Thorne has rights to sell the ISee3D three-dimensional technology with its lasers within certain cell research and regenerative medical research markets, as part of the agreement.

Hamilton Thorne CEO Meg Spencer said coupled with their miniature lasers, researchers will have new capabilities in robotic micro surgery and will be able to visualize many types of cells, cultures and tissue sections.

"we feel that ISee3D is aligned with Hamilton Thorne’s vision and goals for developing solutions in the lab, and our technology synergies could open up new ways for researchers to see the world of cell biology," Spencer said.
