About Etaluma

Etaluma is delivering the future of microscopy with the LumaScope series of low-cost, research-grade imaging instruments.

By creating a strikingly simple and innovative fluorescent microscope, Etaluma has dramatically lowered the cost of this powerful technology. Previously only available to large, well-funded laboratories, now smaller labs, individual researchers, and scientists in the developing world can access the potential of fluorescent microscopes.

Our team is bringing together top talents from a wide range of disciplines to revolutionize the way microscopes are designed. Meet the team…

...such a device will dramatically alter the equation for who uses fluorescence microscopy and how...it just opens up a whole new set of potential users, who will think of 1000 ways to use it that you, the developer, never dreamed of.
