Systems for Research (SFR) congratulates Professor Kevin Plucknett and the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Dalhousie University on the installation of their new Thermo Fisher Scientific Axia ChemiSEM system. This state-of-the-art scanning electron microscope (SEM) is equipped with live integrated Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS), an impressive 1100°C heating stage, and the added capability of cathodoluminescence detection.
This sophisticated microscope was purchased with support from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) as part of an Advanced Ceramic Microstructural Characterisation Suite including SEM, X-ray Diffraction (XRD) and X-Ray Microscopy (also known as microCT). In this context, in collaboration with its premier partners at Thermo Fisher Scientific and Bruker, SFR was uniquely positioned as a single supplier solution for all three instruments. With the ChemiSEM installation completed, SFR looks forward to completing the remaining suite installations in the upcoming months.
We take immense pride in our ongoing relationship with Dalhousie University, and this marks their second Axia ChemiSEM installation in just two years.
Stay tuned as we continue to support Dalhousie University in completing the installation of the remaining instruments in the Advanced Ceramic Microstructural Characterisation Suite. We are excited about the scientific breakthroughs that will undoubtedly emerge from this exceptional partnership.
Systems for Research is proud to announce the release of a new white paper titled “In Situ X-ray Approaches in Battery Research” by its leading partner, Sigray. The paper effectively highlights the development of a suite of groundbreaking lab-based x-ray tools for energy research with performance capabilities approaching that of synchrotron-based approaches.
The new paper titled “ Characterization of Virus Particles and Submicron-Sized Particulate Impurities in Recombinant Adeno-Associated Virus Drug Product” published by Boehringer Ingelheim explore the benefits of MP analysis for assessing aggregate content in AAV samples.
Although low counts for aggregates impeded a quantitative analysis, MP was affirmed as an accurate and rapid method for quantifying the genome content of empty/filled/double-filled capsids.
Systems for Research (SFR) is proud to announce the latest product solution – featurefindIR™ by its leading partner, Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp (PSC).
The featurefindIR provides rapid, automated detection, spectroscopic measurement, and chemical identification of microplastics and other particles, significantly improving the productivity of measurement and providing a basis for measurements of large number of samples in applications including but not limited to microplastics, defect contamination and cells analysis, as well as many other sample types.
