Welcome to Etaluma!
Etaluma Inc. is a privately held Life Sciences company focused on bringing research-grade microscopy to a greater spectrum of users by decreasing the cost and complexity of these devices and encouraging the open-source development of applications for their use.
The primary goal and challenge for Etaluma's diverse team of scientists and engineers is to implement these powerful core technologies in cost-effective formats, thereby extending their availability beyond well-funded laboratories. Moreover, Etaluma is actively looking to provide hardware to reagent and kit manufacturers who want to expand their market into the economics of smaller labs, individual researchers, and third-world settings.
Often engineering teams are made up of individuals without extensive hands-on knowledge of the domain they are designing for. The secret to designing good instrumentation is finding users or customers that can themselves do the engineering to build the right tools. Etaluma is leveraging that development expertise into the next generation of microscopes.
...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.
