RMC BoeckelerRMC is a line of well-known products for the preparation of samples for electron microscopy, mainly biological, but also "soft" samples in the field of materials science. How refined these products are is evidenced by their history, which dates back to 1953, when the Sorvall company developed the first commercially available ulltramicrotome MT-1. This technology was successively taken over and developed by DuPont (1974), RMC (1985), and since 2000 it has been under the wing of Boeckeler Instruments. The latter is an excellent place for these products, as it has extensive experience in the production of precision mechanical devices. Already at the time of its foundation in 1942, the company produced micrometer screws, which are still among the most accurate in the world today, and in the 1960s introduced digital readout to its products. The flagship products of the RMC Boeckeler line include the next generation of PowerTome ultramicrotomes with cryogenic equipment, the ATUMtome instrument for serial collection of sections, rotary microtomes (also cryogenic), mesh stainers and tissue processors.
DENSsolutionsDENSsolutions is an innovative company founded in 2012 in Delft, the Netherlands, whose technological solutions enable conducting in situ experiments in a transmission electron microscope. Thanks to them, you can subject the sample to temperature, voltage, gases and liquids, change their intensity and type, observing the response of the sample in real time. The TEM microscope is no longer just a static imaging device, but becomes a sample dynamic imaging tool. Most importantly, such dynamic observations of changes in structure and chemical composition can be carried out in small sample regions and even with atomic resolution. This significant extension of possibilities is non-invasive for the TEM microscope, as it is implemented by the so-called holder in situ with a special sample carrier made in MEMS technology. The carrier contains the appropriate electrodes, gas and liquid connections and elements ensuring tightness. DENSsolutions is known for its comprehensive approach, hardware and software support the user throughout the entire measurement process. Currently, the company offers Wildfire heating holders, Lightning polarizing holders, Climate gas holders and Stream liquid holders. Each TEM laboratory will find a number of applications for them.
