Molecular Vista based in California, designs, develops, and provides tools that allow its customers to probe and understand matter at the molecular level through quantitative visualization.

Its first product, VistaScope, provides a flexible hybrid atomic force microscopy (AFM) and optical spectroscopy platform for studying material & biological systems with chemical specificity with nanometer spatial resolution.

VistaScope is equipped with patented photo-induced force microscopy (PiFM) where the photo-induced polarization of the sample is measured directly in the near-field by detecting the time-integrated force between the tip and the sample.

Imaging infrared wavelengths specific to different chemical entities, PiFM can resolve the nanometer-scale distribution of each chemical species in diverse multi-phase and multi-component systems, thereby revealing an unprecedented and spectacular molecular vista to the researcher.

VistaScope is built upon an ultra stable and flexible optical platform with top, bottom and side illumination/collection (all with high NA) capabilities and can be offered equipped with complementary techniques such as scattering SNOM (Vista­ SNOM) and tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (Vista-TERS) .

High-end benchtop preclinical imaging

At MOLECUBES utmost priority is given in ensuring user friendliness  and providing expert service with absolutely no compromise on image quality.

MOLECUBES provide three separate benchtop imagers or -The -CUBE (SPECT), -CUBE (PET) and X­ CUBE (CT) which are perfectly suited for  in-vivo multimodal whole body rat and mouse imaging.

All “CUBES” are state-of-the-art in terms of resolution, sensitivity and reconstruction software assuring high image quality. Operating on the same software platforms the “CUBES” function as easily in modular as in stand­ alone mode. All systems fit standard lab tables, are (trans)portable and GLP-proof.

The  -CUBE(PET) – high-performance preclinical PET imager.

Sub-millimetre  image resolution is achieved through the combination  of  scintillators, the latest  photon counting technology and GPU-based  event positioning and iterative image reconstruction.

The X-CUBE(CT) – high throughput CT workhorse.

It allows for fast whole body mouse and rat CT imaging at extremely  low dose and excellent soft tissue contrast. The  -CUBE -high-sensitivity, high-resolution (SPECT) imager allowing whole-body mouse and rat imaging.

Patented lofthole technology and laser sintered collimators combined with high-resolution detectors result in a high-end true benchtop imager.
