Etaluma LS Microscopes

Compact, high resolution,
live cell imaging

Etaluma’s inverted LS Microscopes (Lumascopes) constitute a dramatic new concept in solid-state optics with outstanding sensitivity, maximum resolution, and zero pixel shift. Providing true next-gen microscopy, the compact, inverted design allow imaging in a wide range of labware and settings, including live cell imaging in incubators, hoods, and other challenging locations.

LS720 Microscope

3 Color Fluorescence and Walk-Away Automation

  • High resolution (near diffraction-limited)
  • Automated XY stage & auto Z-focus
  • Live cell imaging in your incubator
  • Surprisingly affordable

OEM Opportunities

We design and offer optical components, microscopy systems including automation, and accessories. We can also design and make custom versions. Products range from optics modules that fit inside or complement your instrumentation to private-label microscopes.

Live Cell Imaging

Powered only by a USB connection, LS Microscopes easily record your photos, time-lapse series, and live videos directly to your computer. Live videos can be recorded at up to 30 frames per second.

A Wide Range Of


The Etaluma LS Microscopes (Lumascopes) can be used in practically any application where a standard inverted (and many upright) microscopes are used.

What our customers are saying

Alex Zambon

Pharmaceutical Sciences

“Extraction of quantitative data from time-lapse imaging can provide unprecedented insights into cell signaling in single cells. A limiting factor in moving this field forward is the cost of existing live imaging systems, until now. The Lumascope 720 has enabled our small budget laboratory to extract real-time data from our multi-color live cell reporters. Thanks to the 720, we have been able to switch over from expensive ELISA based broken cell assays that measure the average signal across heterogeneous populations of cells at a single time point to now acquiring essentially free data points at single cell resolution over time. Also, thanks to the motorized stage and multiwell format we don’t need to use our plate reader anymore.”

R. Zucker

Neurobiology Division

“The Lumascope 620 with 1200-pixel frame sizes and a 20X objective provides far brighter and more uniform illumination than I have ever seen on any microscope using a standard Xe, Hg, or incandescent illuminator. Bravo!”

Stanford University

Stary Neuroscience Lab

“The Lumascope allowed us to resolve low intensity fluorescent labeling that our much higher priced microscope (from a well known company) could not!”
