About Us


Founded in 2006, LightSpeed’s goal is to innovate how micro and nano scale worlds are visualized and understood, making those worlds more affordable and easier to access.

Our leading-edge technology combines specially designed illumination and post-processing software to generate multiple virtual sub-pixels (up to thousands and more) for each physical pixel of a camera, opening a way to transform, for example, a camera with one million pixels into a "super-camera" with one billion effective pixels. LightSpeed innovation will transform optical detection.

In 2009, the company was awarded a prestigious grant from the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) for developing Deep-Submission Optical Detection for High-Density High-Throughput DNA Sequencing.
