MiniTEMTM, a broad range viral pathogen detection system
The MiniTEM-LVEM25 is an automated desktop transmission electron microscope system developed by Vironova and DELONG INSTRUMENTS that can provide a compact, easy to use solution that offers broad range virus detection in situations where time is critical for identifying highly pathogenic viruses. MiniTEM -LVEM25 is a desk-top instrument that in contrast to traditional electron microscopy technology is easy to operate and can be placed in any standard laboratory setting. It enables automatic sample screening and imaging in addition to simplified manual operation due to the automatic calibration to optimized parameters. Electron microscopy is the golden standard in broad range virus family determination. Until today the use of this technology is restricted to a few laboratories around Europe where expert level operators are available. MiniTEM-LVEM25 revolutionizes the electron microscopy technology by offering ease of use and accessibility also to non-expert users.
