Tell us about your in situ microscopy needs, and we will let you know exactly how we can support your lab and your research.

Generate accurate, actionable data from innovative in situ experiments.

In the past, the tools used to observe nanoscale materials were separated from the tools used to conduct experiments with them. Protochips brings observation and experimentation together. Our proprietary technology and advanced software transforms electron microscopes from cameras into complete nanoscale laboratories capable of delivering quantifiable results. Our systems support core labs, academic and industrial researchers in their efforts to understand, develop and commercialize revolutionary materials.
