Greetings!

The Spring weather has brought with it several new product offerings in response to requests from our customers.  We appreciate these kinds of interactions that lead to new innovations and that provide opportunities to enable new capabilities for our customers too.

Thanks again for all the support from our customers.

NEW SINGLE CRYSTAL SILICON

NEW! ONE-OF-A-KIND 

SINGLE CRYSTAL SILICON TEM WINDOWS 

Single Crystal Pure Silicon-  
Grid image not to color or scale. 
In response to many requests, we have developed a single crystal silicon membrane within our TEM Windows Format.
  • 35 nm thick single crystal membrane
  • <1-0-0> silicon orientation
  • Ideal for diffraction studies with single background crystalline silicon signal
  • also useful for studies involving thin-film deposition or creation of novel silicon structures.
NEW WRINKLE-FREE SILICON OXIDE

NEW! EXPANDED SELECTIONS OF 

G-FLAT™ X-RAY WINDOWS


Our wrinkle-free G-FLAT™ Silicon Oxide X-Ray Windows are well suited for correlative studies involving multiple imaging and spectroscopic modalities.

G-FLAT™ silicon oxide membranes are created by a proprietary process that uniquely results in flat, suspended silicon oxide membranes.

 

We initially developed these X-Ray Windows as an alternative to silicon nitride membranes, since many customers required a nitrogen-free background for analytical studies of nitrogen-containing samples.

 

The selections have now been expanded to suit other needs, including ultra-high vacuum (UHV):

 

* Single 500 and 1,000 micron square membranes

* Non-porous, 100 nm and 300 nm thick membranes 

* 300 nm thick, 500 micron window, compatible with UHV

* Standard 5x5 mm frame size

 

Check out the selections at TEMwindows.com.

 

NEW SINGLE WINDOW 10 NM SILICON NITRIDE

NEW! 10 NM THICK SILICON NITRIDE WITH A SINGLE 25 MICRON MEMBRANE WINDOW

10 nm thick Silicon Nitride   Image not to color or scale
  • Balances robustness and membrane thickness and is well-suited for high-resolution imaging of samples with demanding preparation procedures.
  • Useful for performing single nanopore-based molecular translocation experiments.

NEW TOOL FOR CELL MICROSCOPY

 For those interested in cell culture and imaging, 

bidi GmbH recently launched its new -Slide Membrane ibiPore Flow incorporating our G-FLAT™ microporous silicon oxide membranes.

Applications include, the co-culture of smooth muscle cells with endothelial cells under perfusion, trans-migration of leukocytes with dynamic shear stress, and invasion assays using cancer cells.  All assays can then be imaged using phase contrast and fluorescent microscopy with high resolution.
  • A balance of robustness and membrane thickness and is well-suited for high-resolution imaging of samples with demanding preparation procedures.
  • Useful for performing single nanopore-based molecular translocation experiments.

 ibidi GmbH, located in Martinsried near Munich, Germany, is a leading supplier of functional, cell based assays and products for cell microscopy.  Their new -Slide Membrane ibiPore Flow product takes advantage of the cell-friendly properties and high optical clarity of our G-FLAT™ SiO2 membrane, enabling the use of a glass surface to simulate an organ-like environment.

M&M TRAVEL AWARD OPPORTUNITY

We will be exhibiting at M&M 2015 in Portland, OR, during August 2-6.

 

As always, we hope to see you there and, as always, we are offering travel awards to graduate students and post-doctoral fellows attending the conference.

 

We will provide up to three awards of $250 USD to three qualifying grad students and/or post-docs attending the conference and presenting data collected using TEMwindows.com products.

 

 

Please send your entry and accepted M&M abstract to James Roussie at jroussie@TEMwindows.com.  Deadline for submissions is June 30, 2015.
