We are making multi‑photon
microscopy simple and easy-to-use

Our Story

Prospective Instruments is a start-up located in Dornbirn, Austria, and Regensdorf, Switzerland. Founded by Dr. Lukas Krainer it started operations in 2019. Our main goal is it to provide the research and clinical community with a turn-key, flexible, modular and highly compact multimodal imaging platform. All researchers, scientists and clinicians should have access to high quality, affordable multi modal microscopes.

Our Vision

High level microscopy should not be limited to those with technical knowledge, indoor working space or budget. We want to provide access to multimodality at its best combined with a turn-key, compact and flexible device. Every researcher, scientist and clinician should profit from high quality standard, product readiness and revolutionizing product design.

Our Values
User first

We design products that put the users needs first. Every design decision we make is based on this principle.


Your lab equipment should work as hard as you do. Our microscopes are designed to be flexible and adaptable.


We believe that everyone should have access to the tools they need to build a brighter future for all.


We put the environment first. No huge cooling units, no massive energy bill. Better for your lab, better for the planet.

100% Renewables

We strongly believe that everyone has to take on responsibility for our environment. This is why we try to set an example and do our part in taking care of the world we live in. Currently, all our company operations are running 100% on renewable energies and our trips to clients and events are being CO2 compensated.
