Depth with precision

Double Helix Optics captures high-precision 3D images across a depth of field up to 30x that of conventional microscopy — so you can collect more data in a single image.

Instantaneous 3D

Our Light Engineering technology enables instantaneous capture of 3D information, with no need to scan. Save time and storage space by imaging a larger volume per frame, and reduce photoxicity. For live cell, fixed cell, and whole cell. Single molecule, particle tracking, and particle counting.

Simply add Double Helix’s compact SPINDLE2 or SPINDLE® to any widefield microscope and use our library of engineered phase masks to control depth of field and precision. Our 3DTRAX® suite of Fiji/ImageJ plugin modules simplifies 3D imaging reconstruction and analysis.

See What You've Been Missing: Unrivaled Nanoscale 3D Imaging and Sensing

Double Helix Optics has invented a new concept in nanoscale imaging: the engineered rotating point spread function (PSF). Double Helix Light Engineering™ modifies the light path with user-changeable phase masks to deliver optimized 3D images.
The results? Capture information with unparalleled depth and precision.

Open Positions for Product Development Engineer and Sr. Software Development Engineer

Join our growing team as we develop new and exciting products for spatial imaging and ranging applications.

Quotation Marks

We expect that the DH-PSF optics will become a regular attachment on advanced microscopes, either for super-resolution 3D imaging of structure, or for 3D super-resolution tracking of individually labeled bio-molecules in cells or other environments."
