VitroTEM Announces the Launch of Naiad-1, a New Beta Product for Automating GLC Assembly and Enhancing Liquid TEM Imaging

VitroTEM announced the launch of its new beta product, Naiad-1, designed to automate the assembly of graphene liquid cells (GLCs) for obtaining high-resolution liquid phase TEM imaging


AMSTERDAM - VitroTEM is a startup that is revolutionizing the biotechnology industry by developing sample preparation devices for transmission electron microscopy (TEM). This month, the company announced the launch of its new beta product, Naiad-1, which automates the assembly of graphene liquid cells (GLCs).

Naiad-1 is a system that makes the assembly of GLCs a simple task. This technology automates the preparation of graphene and assembles GLCs containing liquid-based samples on standard TEM grids. GLC grids are optimized for imaging in just 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 their investigations.”

GLC technology allows researchers to 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 showcase its technology at the 2022 Liquid Phase Electron Microscopy Conference in Ventura, USA and the PSDI 2022 in Veldhoven, Netherlands, to demonstrate the potential of the technology to researchers looking to be the first to adopt Graphene Liquid Cell Electron Microscopy in their work.
