With Luminesys IPD Increased Photon Density slides for your microscopes and scanners

IPD Nanostructured Slides


Luminesys IPD Increased Photon Density coatings increase the light perceived and emitted by target molecules by a factor of 3 to 25 times.

The photonic, nanostructured coatings are applied to the surface of glass slides or other supports for use with microscopes, microarray scanners and whole-slide imagers.

The coatings precisely control the increase in photon density, making the detection of molecules much more sensitive.

Our proprietary IPD technology was developed at EPFL, Switzerland to enable new generations of analyses for the detection of molecules at lower concentrations.

  • Up to 25x more fluorescence

  • All standard dyes

  • Single or multichannel amplification

  • Standard or custom dimensions

  • Customer workflow compatible




Our goal is that Luminesys contributes to the detection of pathologies earlier, faster and at less cost than before.



Luminesys IPD technology is the result of four years of intensive research and development at the EPFL Institute of Microengineering in Neuchâtel, Switzerland.

Our team is driven by the combination of innovation and passion, and in-depth expertise in photonics, nanoengineering, chemistry and materials science.

Luminesys is paving the way towards more simplicity, sensitivity and affordability in Life Sciences and Medical Diagnostics.

We support our customers by improving their molecular detection capabilities.
