OMA Fellows join forces to improve cancer treatment beam diagnostics

Last month OMA Fellows Jacinta Yap (University of Liverpool) and our Early Stage Researcher Navrit Bal (ASI), along with QUASAR members Roland Schnuerer and Hao Zhang from the Cockcroft Institute visited the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre (CCC), UK to meet with the Head of the Douglas Cyclotron, Dr Andrzej Kacperek. The CCC is treating patients with […]

A Rare Lysozyme Crystal Form Solved Using Highly Redundant Multiple Electron Diffraction Datasets from Micron-Sized Crystals 

Researchers from Stockholm University solved the structure of lysozyme from micro-crystals with a rare crystal form using ASI’s sensitive detector technology. Due to the detectors’ high read-out speed, in a short time, multiple datasets could be collected improving the final model quality. SUMMARY Recent developments of novel electron diffraction techniques have shown to be powerful […]

ASI Obtains TIMEPIX3 License from CERN

Amsterdam, 20 December 2017 Amsterdam Scientific Instruments (ASI) has acquired a license from CERN for the TIMEPIX3 technology, a core component for ASI’s next generation hybrid pixel cameras. With the newly obtained license the company can now deliver the systems commercially. ASI is a spin-off from Nikhef, the Dutch institute of Particle Physics. Since its […]

Medipix based detector heroes in NRC’s science article

Last week, Dorine Schenk from renowned Dutch newspaper NRC handelsblad wrote an article in the Scientific weekend special on the Timepix/Medipix based radiation detector that we have developed over the last few years in collaboration with Nikhef, and CERN. As the full article is originally published in Dutch, we’ve written a short piece on it in English: In […]
