What? Quorum Technologies are “market and technology leaders in electron microscopy coating and cryogenic preparation.”
What, exactly? Electron microscopy is a set of technologies that allows a greater magnification than optical microscopy (106 vs 2,000). Such microscopes have wide applications, especially for biological and inorganic material structure examination. However, materials must be processed into a suitable sample. The preparation methodology itself depends on the type of electron microscopy, and Quorum Technologies manufactures the equipment to conduct these steps.
