Researchers Localized Individual H Atoms in Nanostructures Using Cryo-Transfer LEAP Atom Probe

Scientists from ETH Zürich and Oxford University have succeeded in mapping volatile hydrogen atoms in metal using the fi rst “cryo-transfer” LEAP

of Oxford, investigating the origins of hydrogen embrittlement, have teamed up with the materials research team at ETH Zürich that developed a unique cryogenic transfer protocol for its LEAP Atom Probe that allows researchers to immobilize the highly diff usive hydrogen before APT analysis.

NovAliX Turns to High-Resolution Cryo-Transmission Electron Microscopy for Pre-Clinical Drug Discovery Research

A new contract research laboratory operated by France-based NovAliX will provide pharmaceutical companies with access to high-resolution cryo-transmission electron microscopy for facili- tating small molecule and biologic drug discovery. NovAliX’s new laboratory will use the cryo-TEM to provide 2D and 3D charac- terization of small molecule and biological samples. NovAliX has completed its fi rst program with a Japanese pharmaceutical customer. It has multiple projects planned with some of the top pharmaceutical companies.
