Protochips has selected JoeXray as its distributor for the Aduro™ and Poseidon™ systems in Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, West Virginia, and western Pennsylvania.

Online PR News – 29-June-2011 – – Protochips (, a company specializing in revolutionary products for in situ electron microscopy, today announced JoeXray as the new distributor for the AduroTM and PoseidonTM systems in the states of Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, West Virginia, and western Pennsylvania.

This is a natural partnership that opens new sales channels for Protochips. The AduroTM and PoseidonTM platforms will be powerful additions to the JoeXray line of microscopy products. This partnership will allow clients to:

Design and implement unique and custom experiments
Produce and image low drift thermal samples
Obtain nanometer resolution of liquid samples

The Aduro™ system has revolutionized the capabilities of in situ electron microscopy. Researchers can now complete real time, dynamic thermal studies in high resolution. The Aduro™ E-chip™ consumables are customized to meet the exact needs of an experiment. E-chip™ sample supports replace the traditional TEM grid while providing electrical, thermal, or electro-thermal stimulus to the supported specimen.

The Poseidon™ system is a liquid based system that allows for the imaging of both material and biological samples. Samples that previously required freezing or were unable to be imaged live can now be studied directly in their native environment in real time. The Poseidon E-chip™ consumables increase flexibility by allowing customization of volume and flow path on a per-experiment basis.

Steve Shannon, Protochips’ Vice President of Sales, says, “Joe Ullmer has been in the EM/EDX industry since 1984, understands our technology and the applications, and has an extensive network in our target markets. We anticipate Joe having a very strong impact on our business and know he can provide outstanding service to our mutual customers.”
