A Bold, New Era in Microscopy
Stunningly Detailed Images

MUSE provides unprecedented detailed color images using short-wavelength UV light to penetrate tissue only microns-deep, eliminating the need for precision-cut specimens and slides.

Results in MINUTES

High-quality sample preparation is narrowed from the industry standard 2 weeks to only minutes, allowing faster physician and veterinarian patient diagnosis and treatment protocol.

Reusable Samples

Non-destructive MUSE technology retains the quality of the original samples, preserving valuable tissue for molecular studies. Digital technology allows fast and easy distribution of MUSE results.

Cost Effective
MUSE provides an affordable solution for physicians and veterinarians, saving the US Healthcare System several million dollars annually at $7 to $40 per slide with the current system.

MUSE Technology Delivers an Unprecedented Level of Detail

Based on IP developed jointly at Lawrence Livermore and UC Davis, the MUSE (Microscopy with Ultraviolet Sectioning Excitation) Microscope uses short-wavelength UV light which penetrates only microns-deep into tissue eliminating the need for precision-cut, thin specimens and even slides. In addition, short-wavelength UV light excites many fluorescent dyes simultaneously, providing brilliant snap-shot color imagery. The results are stunningly detailed color images containing a degree of resolution, structure and depth unachievable until MUSE.

Professional Accolades for MUSE

Harnessing the Power of UV Surface Excitation Delivers Rapid Histopathological Imaging.

Standard histological tissue processing involves multiple time-consuming steps including tissue fixation, dehydration, paraffin embedding, physical sectioning and staining, and therefore typically requires at least one day before specimens can be evaluated. MUSE also eliminates the need for microtome maintenance.

MUSE delivers results in minutes.

Superior, Crisp 3D Images

Instead of plane H&E images, MUSE produces superior, crisp, 3-D images that mimic the current H&E slides that the pathologists are used to seeing under the microscope. Thus the pathologists don’t need to be re-trained to read the images from MUSE.

Tissues Stained and Ready within 3 Minutes

No more Formalin, Wax Cleanup & Disposal

With MUSE, there’s no need for the handling of formalin, wax clean-up and disposal, microtome maintenance/upkeep, and preparation of glass slides to be stained and fixed for pathologist to use. Tissues could be stained and read in (usually 3) minutes versus days, which is extremely advantageous for areas such as interventional radiology, dermatology, surgery, worried patients/patient families, etc.

Images Can Be Digitized and Sent For Immediate Lab Results

Life Saving technology for those with limited access to labs

Images from MUSE could be digitized and sent to a pathology lab to be read immediately. This is extremely advantageous for countries and areas in the world where access to a pathologist or a histology lab is difficult.
