ONI’s mission is to accelerate scientific discovery and fight disease by enabling everyone to visualize, understand, and share the microscopic details of life. ONI’s first product, the Nanoimager, is the world’s first desktop, super-resolution, single-molecule imaging platform capable of visualizing and tracking individual molecules in complex systems such as nanoparticles, living cells, and tissue with 20 nm resolution. ONI has continued this trend of democratizing super-resolution microscopy through the introduction of CODI, a software platform for the acquisition, analysis, collaboration, and storage of super-resolution data. ONI was founded as a spin-out from Oxford University and has rapidly grown since its inception with offices now in San Diego, CA (HQ) and Oxford, UK.
