with CNN-based vision system from Basler and Opto

In a urine sediment analysis, laboratory employees examine the solid components of a urine sample under microscope to diagnose diseases of the kidney or urinary organs. However, manual examinations under microscope generally carry a risk of errors and take up valuable time. Many laboratories therefore use automated systems.

CellScope for the analysis of cells

Minimized, ultra-compact microscope with special illumination method for the observation of living cells in a sterile environment with automated function and image evaluation.




Over 3 years in development, the Opto DualStation combines all the imaging techniques and magnifications typically used in IVF labs and condenses them into a single, small, affordable instrument that can be seamlessly housed in the new generation of fully enclosed microscope chambers.

case study



Schwind manufactures devices for the treatment of corneal refractive errors using the LASIK procedure (laser in situ keratomileusis). For a new generation of devices, Opto developed a stereo operation microscope that allows the doctor to visually check the operation and simultaneously couples the UV spectrum of the excimer laser used in a controlled manner.



Pharmaceutical screening is an automated method for testing and analyzing biochemical, genetic or pharmacological substances. The method can filter out defined elements from one or more coordinated runs from the corresponding test area. Affordable High Throughput screening.
