Mr. Lyons commented, “Infinitesima is a very exciting company, at the forefront of its field in atomic force microscopy. We will change the way researchers think about their work, and make previously impossible research tasks possible. This is already resulting in large opportunities for Infinitesima, and I look forward helping the company position itself to achieve high-growth.”
About the VideoAFM™
The VideoAFM™ is the first atomic force microscope that is capable of delivering real-time images at video frame rates. With imaging rates up to 1000 times faster than conventional AFM's, the VideoAFM™ allows users to view and interact with molecular processes in real time.
The VideoAFM™ works in conjunction with existing AFM's without affecting the functionality of the microscope. The VideoAFM™ also allows large surface areas to be explored before selecting features of interest for a more detailed investigation.
Infinitesima Ltd. specialises in developing advanced products for Scanning Probe Microscopy, the key enabling tools for nanotechnology.
Infinitesima is a spin-out from the University of Bristol, UK. The company is located in central Oxford at the Oxford Centre for Innovation. Additional information about Infinitesima Ltd. can be found at www.infinitesima.com.
