The SXT100 is the only commercial, lab-based solution for imaging subcellular structure.
No other high resolution imaging modality is capable of quantitatively imaging the subcellular organization of whole hydrated cells, up to 15μm thick at resolutions up to 40 nm, in their native state, with very little preparation and without the use of stains or other contrast enhancing agents.

Sirius XT spun out of the UCD School of Physics Spectroscopy Group in 2015 and is based in Dublin, Ireland. The vacuum-based laser-produced plasma technology, which is the core technology that underpins the SXT100, has been developed at UCD since 2005 by a team of internationally-renowned plasma physicists.
