  • ELDICO Scientific - the Electron Diffraction Company - is a Swiss instruments, systems and service company founded in 2019 and located in Switzerland Innovation Park Innovaare at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), one of the world's leading research centres for natural and engineering sciences. ELDICO develops, produces and sells electron diffractometers for the analysis of solid compounds enabling industrial and scientific researchers to characterise hitherto unmeasurable nano-crystalline systems. Electron Diffraction is gaining momentum in science and industry. Its applications are opening fascinating new perspectives particularly for organic compounds required in the fields of chemical, pharmaceutical and advanced materials research. The ELDICO ED-1 device is dedicated solely to electron diffraction (also known as 3D-ED, microED or electron diffraction tomography). The device offers high-quality structural information directly in the nanocrystal regime and delivers reliable results within a few hours. With a disruptive horizontal design and an innovative sample-handling mechanism, ELDICO ED-1 helps scientists enter the field of nano-crystallography and produce important structural information faster, with better quality and at lower cost. With this addition, any crystallographic lab will be able to perform routine analysis on samples that have so far been considered prohibitive – including nanocrystalline powders, minute quantities and phase mixtures.

  • Technobis Crystallization Systems is a world leading technology provider for solid-state research, process development and formulation. Our mission is to help research succeed! Since 2005, platforms for accelerating crystallization research have been successfully developed and installed in nearly every pharmaceutical research lab in the world. With more than 600 units in the field, a large community of scientists have been enabled to make a significant contribution to the accelerated development of new pharmaceuticals. In the last few years, new applications have been developed in agrochemical, fine chemical, military and (bio) fuel research, food and personal care creating new markets focused on understanding the importance of crystallization research.
