Hoffman Modulation Contrast® (HMC)

The Modulation Optics division of Navitar manufactures Hoffman Modulation Contrast (HMC) microscope components and systems for use in live cell imaging applications such as stem cell imaging, cancer study, and embryo and sperm monitoring during in vitro fertilization.

Ideally suited for imaging colorless and transparent biological specimens, HMC makes it possible to image active events in living cells with enhanced sharpness and definition. Our products can identify and classify stem cells in live cell observation and analysis systems.

The blending of Modulation Optics' technology with Navitar's industry experience enables us to be a valuable research and development partner with companies developing the next generation of live cell imaging systems. HMC technology can now be used in combination with Navitar's other illumination techniques such as DIC, darkfield, brightfield, and fluorescence, to achieve spectacular images.
