Ithaca, NY, - March 10th, 2020 MiTeGen, LLC, a provider of innovative tools and consumables for cryo-electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) and X-ray crystallography announces distribution agreement with NanoSoft, LLC for their cryo-EM sample preparation technologies.
“We are excited to enter into a synergistic partnership with NanoSoft and make these innovative technologies available to our growing cryo-EM customer base.“ Says Benjamin Apker, COO, MiTeGen. “Early on, we realized that improving the workflow for the preparation, vitrification, and subsequent handling of sample grids was a critical area to address in order to advance cryo-EM in structural biology. NanoSoft’s mission and developments to help ease the pain points in current processes are a perfect match for what we are looking to bring to the cryo-EM community.“
Under the agreement, MiTeGen will promote and market NanoSoft’s tool, accessories, and services, including Cryo-Tweezers, The Igloo, Autogrid Inspection Tool, and the Ethane Condenser. Customers can now order NanoSoft products through MiTeGen.
“MiTeGen has been and continues to be a leader in providing innovative technologies for Structural Biology”, says Michael Godfrin, President of NanoSoft. “Partnering with them further validates our product offering and will expand our reach and enable more cryo-EM users to be equipped with tools that make their lives easier and their workflow more efficient. We look forward to bringing innovation to the cryo-EM community and structural biology market together.”
Enabling our customers’ research is important. We provide innovative tools and solutions that measurably improve the ease, reproducibility, and quality of their experiments. MiTeGen engineers, manufactures and distributes a full range of the leading products for the cryo-electron microscopy (Cryo-EM), crystallization, crystal harvesting, cryocooling and X-ray diffraction data collection of proteins, viruses and small molecule/inorganic compounds. Our customers include academic, medical, pharmaceutical, government and industrial laboratories in more than 45 countries. Founded in 2004, MiTeGen is based in Ithaca, NY.
At NanoSoft, we want to revolutionize the way cryo-TEM samples are prepared and handled. With the incredible progress made in other parts of the cryo-EM workflow, sample preparation now limits the efficiency and potential of the technique. NanoSoft develops, manufactures and sells innovative products to improve the efficiency of cryo-EM sample preparation and the ergonomics, ease of use and safety of the sample preparation workflow and its tools. Ultimately, NanoSoft is working to develop proprietary blotless sample preparation techniques into an unparalleled cryo-EM sample preparation platform. NanoSoft sells its innovative products to researchers at universities, research hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and research institutes across the globe. Founded in 2016, NanoSoft is located in Coventry, RI.
