Vergabe von Lizenzen auf mehrere Patente an LaVision BioTec
Der Unternehmensbereich Mikroskopie der Carl Zeiss AG hat rückwirkend zum 4. August 2005 der Firma La Vision BioTec GmbH, Bielefeld, Lizenzen auf mehrere Patente vergeben. Diese Patente schützen die Verwendung ultrakurzer, im Femtosekundenbereich liegender Laserpulse zur Multiphotonen-Fluoreszenzanregung in der Laser Scanning Mikroskopie. Die weltweit exklusiven Rechte an dieser Methode inklusive der Berechtigung zur Vergabe von Unterlizenzen hatte das Unternehmen von der Cornell Foundation im Jahr 2004 erworben. Nach Vergabe der Unterlizenzen, ist LaVision BioTec zurzeit neben Carl Zeiss weltweit der einzige Hersteller, der fs-Multiphotonen-Mikroskope anbieten darf.

TriM Scope for Centenary Institute, Sydney
The Centenary Institute, one of Australia ’s leading medical research institutes, has unveiled a microscope more powerful than any other in the country.
Designed and built by German company LaVision BioTec, the multiphoton microscope and its array sit on a specialised table about the size of a single mattress. It uses dual laser beams to view the sample, allowing scientists to observe fast-moving objects and dynamic processes in living tissue. The lasers have also been enhanced to produce longer wavelengths, enabling researchers to observe objects in tissue up to 0.5 mm thick. [...]"
