London, UK-based ionscope has raised £680,000 ($1.4m) from technology investors Cambridge Angels Group. Ionscope plans to use the funds to further development of its line of products based around a technique called scanning ion conductance microscopy (SICM), which the company claims produces images of living cell membranes at resolutions 50 times greater than conventional microscopes. SICM is a benign procedure, which means it does not kill living cells.
