Q-PHASE, launched in 2015, is a unique instrument for quantitative phase imaging (QPI) based on patented technology of Coherence-controlled holographic microscopy. This quite new technique attracts a lot of attention not only within the scientific community. Introduced at mmc2015 in Manchester, UK, Q-PHASE is building solid position in the life sciences research.

Examining prostate cancer cells subjected to chemotherapy by means of the multimodal holographic microscope Q-PHASE, scientists from the Masaryk University, discovered why the recurrence of cancer after treatment.

Nobody wants to hear that the apparently cured cancer has returned.

FEMTONICS in cooperation with TESCAN would like to invite you to participate at the Imaging Day in Prague.

26 November 2015

Institute of Molecular Genetics, Vídeňská 1083, Prague 4

September 22nd, 2015 was dedicated to one-day TESCAN-Femtonics meeting New horizons in imaging of dynamic systems: Multiphoton and digital holographic microscopy in biomedical research.


New horizon in imaging of dynamic systems: Multiphoton and digital holographic microscopy in biomedical research

During this meeting, TESCAN and FEMTONICS will demonstrate recent advances and development of two rapidly emerging techniques for live cell imaging in biomedical research - multiphoton microscopy and digital holography.

TESCAN has just released the Q-PHASE multimodal holographic microscope. This unique instrument uses the principle of coherent-controlled holography for imaging live cells in vitro in real time.

The Q-PHASE differs from other systems in that it employs white light to image specimens. Other systems typically use lasers or laser diodes which may cause adverse or undesirable effects, mainly in terms of imaging quality. Furthermore, the Q-PHASE is able to image live cells in real time with no need for contrast stains, thus, avoiding any potential harmful, pathogenic or toxic effect.

TESCAN is set to launch Q-PHASE, described as a unique and dedicate multimodal holographic microscope for quantitative phase imaging and life sciences.

The coherence-controlled holographic microscope uses incoherent light sources (halogen lamp, LED) for high quality quantitative phase imaging.

At mmc2015 in Manchester, the new Q-PHASE, a unique and dedicate Multimodal Holographic Microscope (MHM) for Quantitative Phase Imaging (QPI) and Life Sciences will be introduced to the scientific community.

Q-PHASE is based on a patented technology of coherence-controlled holographic microscopy. Such technique uses incoherent light sources (halogen lamp, LED) giving as a result QPI at the highest quality without any compromises. Furthermore, it is the only technique which allows for the imaging of samples in scattering media; something completely novel and never achieved before in QPI imaging.

TESCAN has introduced its multimodal holographic microscope (MHM) Q-PHASE. The optical microscope is based on the principle of non-coherent holography and uses white light for illumination, thus producing high quality imaging.

The TESCAN solution enables the monitoring of live cells in real time and quantifies their parameters without needing to apply contrast stains. Thanks to this technology live samples are not harmfully affected, and pathogenic or even toxic effects are avoided. The ability to observe samples in scattering media is also unique.
