VitroTEM announces the launch of a new beta product: Naiad-1

VitroTEM launches a new beta product, Naiad-1, that will allow researchers to record transmission electron microscopy on liquid samples in a conventional TEM system automatically and quickly.


AMSTERDAM - VitroTEM is a start-up that innovates the biotechnology industry by building sample preparation devices for transmission electron microscopy (TEM). This month the company announced the launch of its new beta product, Naiad-1, designed to automate the assembly of graphene liquid cells (GLCs).

Naiad-1 is a system that makes graphene liquid cell assembly an easy task. This technology automates graphene preparation and assembles GLCs containing liquid-based samples on standard TEM grids. GLC grids are designed to be imaged in a matter of minutes.

“Using our machine is easier, faster, and more reliable than using manual preparation,” said VitroTEM founder Pauline van Deursen. “This allows researchers to have more precise samples and more time to focus on the investigation.”

By using GLC technology, researchers can study liquid samples in transmission electron microscopes without the need for vitrification or special sample holders. This makes it possible to perform dynamic liquid TEM imaging of nanoparticles, or even whole biological cells, at an unprecedented resolution.

The company will be present at the 2022 Liquid Phase Electron Microscopy, Gordon Research Conference in Ventura, USA, and also at PSDI 2022 in Veldhoven, Netherland, as part of its agenda to demonstrate the newest technology to the assistants interested in being part of the first scientists in the use of Graphene Liquid Cell Electron Microscopy in their research.
