EMF Exposure Systems
SAR slice banner



The sXcLiveELF is a miniature extremely low frequency (ELF) exposure system which is integrated with a microscope system. State-of-the-art microscopic techniques, including confocal scanning and fluorescence microscopy, allow live cell imaging during exposure. In contrast to the classic approach of post analysis of cell responses, the instrument enables direct insight into the cell’s response to EMF.
