A World Beyond

Microscopy, like no other technology, is constantly expanding our knowledge about what holds the world together at its core, about what the building blocks of life look like. In life sciences, materials research, geology, archeology, mineralogy... again and again, microscopes in the hands of brilliant researches provide the newest findings and so make innovations possible.

PI, as an "enabling partner", supports users and researches worldwide with ever more precise, faster, and reliable motion and positioning systems for samples and objectives. The spectrum ranges from standard microscopes through the most modern superresolution microscopes to atomic force, X-ray, and particle beam microscopes. In fact, many of these technologies were only realized thanks to powerful nanopositioning systems from PI.

It is our goal to push microscopy as a knowledge and innovation engine.

Open Source Microscopy
Open Source Microscopy
Microscopy is one of the technologies that is constantly reinventing itself. The first microscopes from the early 17th century were very simple in design, but countless developments have steadily increased their performance.
