NanoJet, a Helsinki, Finland-based startup manufacturer aiming to enhance microscopy with a range of innovative products, announced completing an EUR 1M financing investment round.

The money is a combination of equity ($450k), supported by Lifeline Ventures and Wave Ventures, and public grants provided by Business Finland.

NanoJet was founded as a spin-out from research made at the University of Helsinki and Åbo Akademi by a team led by Edward Hæggström.

The company, led by CEO Kristian Ahlers, developed a range of bioimaging products (i.e. high-tech solutions for imaging at the nanometer level), including a purely optical 3D microscope capable of nano-scale resolution, a 2D-3D Magic tool that turns ordinary 2D optical microscopes into 3D while helping in their calibration, and 3D nano-scale calibration tools.

Prior to this round, Nanojet was funded by University of Helsinki and Åbo Akademi University.
