This week, our co-founder and director Mervyn Miles is at the 19th International Microscopy Congress (IMC19) in Sydney, Australia. There looks to be an interesting range of AFM-related talks and if you are at the conference, be sure to catch Merv's invited talk on Thursday 13th September entitled "High-speed AFM and the Essential Role of Water Molecules".
Our managing director, James, will be driving all the way from Bristol to attend the SPMonSPM2018 conference, running from the 20-24th of August in Leuven, Belgium. Find him for a chat if you are interested in finding out more about NuNano and the products we offer.
We are also excited to be sponsoring the lanyards at the conference and you'll also find some NuNano items in your conference pack.
Our office space at Unit DX is really filling up. We are really pleased to welcome our two new sales interns, Julian Green and Katie Rich who will join us for the summer months to help us connect with AFM users outside Europe. Julian has just completed his degree in politics and philosophy at the University of Bristol and Katie is an MPhys student at Durham University.
We are really looking forward to exhibiting at UK SPM in only two days’ time (June 25th - 26th).
We feel that this conference is a perfect starting point for us as a company to exhibit ourselves and a great opportunity to chat with members of the scanning probe microscopy community from the UK and beyond.
Do drop by our stand when you visit the exhibition hall, which will contain a large amount of bright green so you probably won’t miss us. We’d really love to hear about your research and the areas of scanning probe microscopy that interest you.
We are pleased to announce that we have signed a distribution agreement with the Japanese company, Filgen Inc., a supplier of scientific equipment to the bioscience and nanoscience research communities in Japan.
Japan has always been on our radar as an important country in which to market and sell our AFM probes, given its reputation as a leading nation in nanotechnology research.
James Vicary, MD of NuNano, comments "We are looking forward to seeing our probes being utilised in some of the innovative nanoscience and materials research emerging from Japan."
We are pleased to welcome Amira as our new sales intern, who will join us for the next two months. She has recently finished her degree in psychology at the University of Bristol so we are really excited to see how she approaches NuNano sales activity from this angle.
We are pleased to announce the addition of a gold reflective backside coating to our existing probe range. This will extend the capability of our probes to atomic force microscopy imaging in liquid media such as biological buffers.
We are excited to see in which new areas of research our customers will utilize our gold-coated probes and the type of samples they will now be able to image.
Check out our store for pricing or to place an order. If you require more information about our new offering, please do not hesitate to get in touch by sending an email to email@example.com.
We won't be stopping here. Future product development will include coating the tips of our AFM probes with gold. Sign up to our mailing list to be the first to know when we have these in stock.
The annual International Scanning Probe Microscopy conference (ISPM) is taking place on the 8-11th May in Tempe, Arizona. Unfortunately, we won't be present at the conference this year but we are delighted to offer a UK-based PhD student or postdoc who will be presenting a talk, a £500 sponsorship towards their travel and accommodation.
Speakers are due to be announced on Friday 30th March 2018. If/when you or one of your PhD students or postdocs has been accepted to present a talk, applications can be made via the form here.
It is important to us that as well as a provider of AFM probes, we are a source of helpful resources for the AFM community. We are pleased to announce the launch of our AFM-related articles in the Resources area of our website. Whether you are someone starting out in AFM or a more experienced user, there will be something there to interest you. Keep an eye on our Resources page as we begin to build up this section of our website.
As we consider which type of probe to develop next, it is vital that we get input from AFM users. We have created a really quick, 1-question product survey to encourage the AFM community to shape our future product development. Help us decide which probes to bring out next by filling it in here. It should only take a minute!
