Google announced on Tuesday a Golgi-based apparatus for high-resolution imaging, which the company said is able to image volumes in a volume of less than 1 cubic centimeter.
The Golgi system, which is being developed at the company’s Google X lab, can take advantage of a new generation of ultrafast processors that make it possible to record images of volumes in which there is no visible matter or volume.
Google says the Golgi is a new kind of instrument that can make images that are very high resolution.
This new technology makes it possible for scientists to take images that were previously only possible with optical cameras, Google said.
The instrument can also take images in the presence of liquid and gas and in areas that are not visible to the naked eye.
Google said it’s looking to commercialize the Golgis by the end of the year.
Google will have an open hardware platform for Golgi devices and an open software platform for software.
