Electron Microscopy Innovative Technologies, LLC
Electron Microscopy Innovative Technologies, LLC (Emit) was founded in 2014. We specialize in renting portable Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEMs) to customers who want to keep their R&D in-house while saving valuable time and resources. These SEMs have the ability to image samples at magnifications >100,000X while also measuring the local chemistry of the material.
In the past 10 years the electron microscope has transitioned from a large instrument requiring specialized facilities in controlled labs into small, desktop systems which require only a single 120V plug. With the advent of the portable SEM and the introduction of chemical analysis detectors to these small footprint systems, desktop SEMs can now perform over 95% of the functions of a full size SEM.
We began our business in 2014 because we wanted to bring these powerful tools to the masses. Our business now enables small and medium sized technology businesses and startups the opportunity to access high-end equipment for a fraction of the price paid by outsourcing to an external lab.
We are conveniently located in the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology facility at 222 Pitkin St. in East Hartford, CT near the intersections of I-84, I-91 and Route 2.
