In our research video clip you can see the invasion of a T4 Lymphocyte cell. This cell is being invaded by the HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) . The round lighter coloured objects(one of which is moving) are the viruses.T4 cells are specialised white blood cells, which are crucial for the body’s immune system.
As you can see here these cells get targeted by the HIV virus which then eventually completely take over the cell where they replicate themselves and eventually rupture the cell wall and escape to infect other T4 cells causing full blown AIDS (acquired immuno deficiency syndrome).
The size of this virus is approximately 120 nanometers. The magnification is approximately 50,000X (times). The field of view is around 1micron.
Red Blood Cell
In our research video clip you can see a pair of red blood cells imaged with a field of view of approximately 10 microns.A red blood cell is approximately 7 microns across.
In this video clip you can see a pathogen of unknown type moving across and around the surface of the cell on the left. Activity within the cell can also be seen. The magnification here is approximately 18,000X (times).
House fly mouth parts
Here you see a video clip of the mouth parts of a common house fly (Muscadomestica).
This clip shows the enhancement of clarity and detail that our microscope achieves at lower magnifications of 400X.
Vitae Nano is a start-up company making microscope equipment for medical, life sciences, education, research facilities, security & military purposes. Vitae Nano is the culmination of close to ten years of research & development in the microscopy arena.
Inspired by the need to enhance further the present day resolution limits of microscopes across various applications.
Vitae Nano has also the knowledge to enhance the resolution of leading microscopes by (to) four thousand times by the simple addition of an adapter at the eyepiece or trinocular.
Vitae Nano will disrupt the $9 billion global microscopy market enabling researchers to see objects LIVE at the nanoscale.
