DELMIC markets two products conceived of in academia. The theme of both products ist eh integration of light and electron microscopy in one device. The SECOM platform integrates a fluorescence microscope with an electron microscope. This combines the functional information of the fluorescence microscope with the unlimited structural resolution of the electron microscope. This allows for faster, easier and better biological research. The SPARC detector detects the light that is generated by the electrons of the electron microscope when they hit the sample. This emitted light can be used to study material composition, or study the behaviour of nanostructures, such as for nanophotonics.
