“We’ve completed our theoretic study, which enables us to progress to a new function: an automatic operator. Devices should become more advanced, depending less on the human factor,” notes the First Deputy Chairman of the Belarusian National Academy of Sciences’ Presidium, Sergey Chizhik. Device adjustments are computerised, allowing auto scanning via remote control. “We could launch the programme in Minsk while operating the device in Saudi Arabia, tracking all measurements and other results,” adds Mr. Chizhik.

Belarusian scientists are now also testing a microscope for nano-tomography. As Mr. Chizhik explains, such devices have already aroused interest among medical staff. “Prospects seem promising: we’ll be able to observe pathological changes in live cells and the influence of drugs,” he says.

The microscope combines the functions of a bio-incubator, growing cells, with those of an optic and probe microscope, producing 3D images, with nano-scale resolution. It can also film the life of a cell over a long period of time. “Since we know that oncology softens the cell membrane, while diabetes hardens it, our microscope allows diagnosis of pathological changes,” notes Mr. Chizhik.
