ROCHESTER, NY-Navitar Life Sciences, an affiliated entity of Navitar Inc., an optics manufacturer, have entered into an agreement to acquire assets of Modulation Optics and its Hoffman Modulation Contrast (HMC) Imaging Technology.

Modulation Optics (Glen Cove, NY) manufactures Hoffman Modulation Contrast microscope components and systems for use in live cell imaging applications such as stem cell imaging, cancer study and embryo and sperm monitoring during in vitro fertilization procedures. The Hoffman Modulation Contrast technology, originally developed and patented by Robert Hoffman, has become the most widely used light microscopy contrast method for viewing colorless and transparent biological specimens.
