Pen-type confocal endomicroscope

Applying a Lissajous-patterned laser scanning technology, our pen-type confocal microscope renders real-time in-vivo cell images. High-resolution images are obtained without any delay and such performance enables users to observe live cells in their natural environment. 



The system consists of three parts: the optical system, the image processor, and the monitor. Compact and mobile, the system can be used wherever it is needed.


The pen-type probe has a long fiber connected to the system. The user can hold it like a pen and freely move it around. Live imaging begins immediately when the tip of the probe touches the sample surface.
