It’s been a fantastic year here at the Oxford Instruments NanoAnalysis family.
We kicked off our first quarter with an OI Ruby anniversary. Dr Peter Statham, our Director of R&D, celebrated 40 years of service on January 3rd. Peter has been an integral part of ensuring we remain at the forefront of scientific innovation, even being recognised for his contributions to the field of microscopy at Microscopy & Microanalysis - and we’re honoured by his continuous dedication to Oxford Instruments.
Straddling February and March, Pittcon 2018 brought in the beginning of our event season. We always love getting to know everyone who comes to our booth, and this year at Orlando was no different – it was great to hear about the innovative research that is being undertaken around the globe.
What better way to start the new financial year than with a new product launch? April marked the release of our newest additions to the EBSD detector family: C-Swift and C-Nano. These detectors contain many of the same features as our ground-breaking Symmetry detector, including a customised CMOS sensor which is capable of delivering speed and sensitivity.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of our marketing team, by the end of May we were well prepared for the release of our brand new Oxford Instruments website which brought a new modern look, as well as improved navigational capabilities.
As for June?
Business as usual in China, with our Hailar customer meeting being kicked off in style.
How to follow on from such a busy first half of the year? Here at Oxford Instruments, we’ve not heard of a quiet month, and July was no exception. Ultim® Max is our new and improved range of EDS detectors, which combine the largest sensor sizes with Extreme Electronics for the collection of up to 17x more data with no loss of accuracy. The addition of Ultim Max 40 and Ultim Max 65 provide a fully comprehensive set of sensor options for SEM & FIB.
