Users obtain functional color information through fluorescence microscopy.

DELMIC develops and manufactures products which are focused on high performance, user friendly, integrated microscopy solutions, have been presenting their latest applications data at this year’s series of international microscopy meetings.

CEO, Mr Sander den Hoedt, made the first of these presentations at the mmc2014 which was held in Manchester in July.

DELMIC have developed an innovative product for life scientists - SECOM. The SECOM system is a platform that may be used to easily and quickly combine light and electron microscopy.

In its primary configuration, the SECOM platform allows the user to obtain functional color information through fluorescence microscopy and structural information by using the scanning electron microscope. DELMIC's 'CL marker' technology makes overlay between the fluorescence and electron images fully automated and user independent.

Sander den Hoedt is co-founder and CEO of DELMIC BV. With a background in electron microscopy, he is committed to bringing high-tech systems to market, product design and exploring novel technologies. He is presenting the SECOM platform to the three 2014 international meetings on microscopy.

At mmc 2014, organized by the Royal Microscopical Society, Mr den Hoedt presented a paper discussing a fast and accurate solution for CLEM - the SECOM platform. This was part of a session on the Frontiers in BioImaging session on Correlative Light Electron Microscopy (CLEM).

In August, DELMIC will return to the USA where the SECOM platform won one of Microscopy Today's Product Innovation awards in 2013.

Finally, DELMIC will go to the 18th International Microscopy Congress in Prague where they will be making exciting new product and applications development announcements.
