Last month TU Delft spin off comapny DELMIC, part of the portfolio of Delft Enterprises announced the launch of Delphi – a unique correlative microscope resulting from a unique collaboration with Dutch company Phenom-World.
Delphi is a high-performance correlative microscope, combining fluorescence and electron microscopy in several innovative ways. Delphi for example offers simultaneous measurements without any need to move the sample. It is also built as a table-top system, limiting the demand for extra space and facilities and offering extreme ease-of-use. The companies developed a unique platform within a period of 12 months after project kick-off.
In life science imaging, fluorescence microscopy provides precise localization for specific events while electron microscopy is able to provide detailed structural information with nanoscale resolution and very good depth-of-focus. Combined, the two techniques
quickly provide a more complete picture for the user with a technique known as Correlative Light & Electron Microscopy or CLEM. With the Delphi, CLEM is made accessible for virtually any laboratory thanks to its ease-of-use and affordability. The Delphi is a revolutionary microscope with a wide range of applications, such as research into Alzheimer’s, Cancer and Diabetes.
