EnzoNano's high precision microscope consists of an array of vertically oriented carbon nanotubes that are sensitive to cells, bacteria and viruses. The microscope’s resolution is down to the nanoscale, while its field of view can be as high as millimeters. This automated microscope can be operated by anyone.
Primary Application Area: Biotech, Pharma

Value Proposition: We believe industry will be interested in the electronic microscope on a chip due to its low cost and simplicity in use. There are a variety of markets ranging from research to drug development to routine diagnostics in environments where a traditional microscope is not practical or would be too expensive. Real time imaging down to the nanoscale in these fields will be enabled by the low cost and portability of this chip based microscope. Unlike traditional microscopes, the EnzoNano chip based microscope does not require highly skilled personal to operate. This will allow for further penetration into the traditional microscope markets as well as open new markets which previously could not support a microscope and the personal to run them. The EnzoNano microscope on a chip is a consumable product that could generate a continuous revenue stream from customers.
