James (our MD) joins the RMS SPM Section committee

The Royal Microscopical Society (RMS) has several scientific section commitees, covering the main areas of microscopy. They advise RMS on matters such as the training and resources they provide and ensure that the society is up to date with the latest developments in microscopy.

Our managing director, James has recently joined the Scanning Probe Microscopy Section committee alongside four other company representatives in the field. He looks forward to making a contribution to the committee moving forward.

NuNano collaborate with University of Bristol marketing students

We think it’s important to get some outsider perspective once in a while. Having some fresh eyes to look at a challenge we are facing is always welcome.

Thus, we are delighted to be working with three groups of MSc marketing students at the University of Bristol who will be producing a communications plan for us on how we might effectively market our probes to AFM users in Japan and China.

We are really looking forward to reading their final piece of work in December and we hope they will take away some practical skills to use in their future careers.

Some more new faces at NuNano

It’s always exciting to have some new faces about the office. A big welcome to Sarah, David, and David who have joined us as sales interns in our Bristol home, UnitDX. Sarah and David are second year Chemistry students at the University of Bristol and Samar has recently graduated with a BSc in Physics and Philosophy.

We are really looking forward to getting to know them, showing them the ropes, and learning a little from them aswell.

Hannah and Helen join the team

We said goodbye to our sales interns, Julian and Katie at the end of last month. They did an amazing job this summer, generating many new leads for us and reaching out to potential customers outside the UK.

Now, we are pleased to welcome Hannah, our new process engineer and Helen, our new part-time administrator. Hannah is currently finishing her PhD at the University of Edinburgh and Helen was previously manager of the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials at the University of Bristol.

Our team is growing...

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.

Visit our stand at UK SPM 2018

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.

NuNano go for gold

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 info@nunano.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.
