The convergence of nanotechnology
and life science provides an immense source for progress in
biological and biomedical research. Advancement in this field
will have a dramatic impact on the development of completely
new concepts and innovative products in medicine, pharmacy and
Microscopy has always played a key role in life science research.
Microscopy-related and high-end optical techniques bear the
potential to visualise, better elucidate and finally control
biological processes on the level of single molecules, individual
living cells and living cell assemblies. Successfully addressing
these issues will enable the convergence of life science and
nanotechnology in research and for industrial applications.
lpi light power instruments GmbH was founded in June 2005. The company
holds pertinent intellectual properties and has built up a development
team that is highly skilled and experienced in the field of optical
nano-instrumentation. In August 2006, JPK Instruments AG acquired
100% of lpi´s company shares.
lpi´s mission is to develop optical nano-instrumentation for
life science applications as a basis for uncompromised success in
research as well as in industrial applications. Our developments will
be based on unique high-end technologies and on profound knowledge
of market needs. We seek to provide solutions that can enhance 3D
real-time live-cell imaging with high spatial and temporal resolution.
We also seek solutions for imaging techniques that - in contrast to
descriptive techniques - will enable quantification of biological
processes within individual cells.
