DoD GRANTS FOR RESEARCH EQUIPMENT – WE CAN HELP!

Grant Funding Supports Automated Specimen Prep

Earlier this year the US Dept of Defense (DoD) issued several DURIP* academic funding opportunities for purchasing equipment for research important to national defense. The DoD takes a broad view of national defense to include biological and medical research—areas in which we know many of you are engaged. In fact, some of our customers have been awarded DURIP grants to purchase our automated specimen processor, the ASP-1000.


With many labs closed due to the pandemic, this may be the perfect time to apply for this grant…and we’re here to help. We can provide persuasive data and verbiage to support your application for an ASP-1000.


DURIP Grant: N00014-20-S-F004

Funding: $50,000 - $1,500,000

Deadline: May 15

* Defense University Research Instrumentation Program
   

WEBINAR – NEGATIVE-STAINING VIRUSES FOR TEM

Webinar: Virus Specimen Preparation in Biosafety Level 3-4 Laboratories
A scientist from US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) will present her work on negative staining preparation of pathogenic viruses in high containment BSL4 labs in coming weeks. Using mPrep/g capsules to eliminate grid handling in the BSL suite resulted in easier, safer processing and more reproducible sample preparation.
…and we’ll let you know once the webinar is scheduled!

M&M PRESENTATIONS

MandM 2020
New Automated Prep Protocols for Brain and Nerve Tissues
Organizers are still contemplating whether and how to hold the Microscopy and Microanalysis 2020 meeting. Regardless of the conference format, we'll be looking forward to sharing research supported by our products that was selected for podium or poster presentations:
  • Serial Block-Face SEM of Brain Tissue Using Rapid Automated Preparation, Cleveland Clinic (ID 856460)
  • Automated Preparation of Nerve Tissue for TEM, Microscopy Innovations (ID 856508)
  • Past, Present, and Future of Electron Microscopy Chemical Processing Workflows, Microscopy Innovations (ID 853526)
Can’t wait? We can share the protocols!
