Faster Image Acquisition in Fluorescence Microscopy


Your microscope is controlled by software which runs on the computer. Inscoper works up to 3 times faster, and is easier to use. Our technology provides the best performance to control microscope systems used for research in life sciences.

Unlock your microscope. Run it faster

> If imaging fast and transient events at the cellular scale is important in your research,

> If a high framerate requires you to sacrifice the quality of images, to continuously expose samples, or to limit the number of dimensions of acquisition sequences,

> If you carefully choose devices for high speed performance but find that they are limited by the control software,

> If you want to be certain that your microscope always runs at its maximum speed,

… then our solution is meant for you!


Inscoper’s innovation involves a new approach to control hardware devices, regardless of the type or the manufacturer. For users who need to obtain the best performance of their microscopes, Inscoper provides an easy-to-use and effective solution.

++ Image acquisition up to 3 times faster than conventional approaches, by suppression of software latency effects in the control of hardware devices.

++ Improved user experience which allows focusing on the results rather than the operation of the equipment.

++ Well-suited for fluorescence techniques based on widefield and spinning disk confocal microscopy.


1/ The user puts the sample(s) on the stage and configures the desired acquisition sequence : timelapse, wave lengths, moves, etc.

2/ Using patented technology, the electronic device Inscoper runs the sequence at the fastest speed possible considering the mechanical characteristics of the microscope and devices.

3/ Images are stored and displayable on the computer for subsequent processing and analysis.


Image Acquisition Process

This video presents the Inscoper automation solution. You can view the image acquisition process as well as the user interface during this operation.

This demo took place at the Oceanological Observatory of Villefranche-sur-Mer (France). The equipped microscope is a Leica DMi8.
