R&D Magazine today announced the Finalists, including the LVEM25 TEM, for the 53rd annual R&D 100 Awards, which honor the 100 most innovative technologies and services of the past year. This year’s Winners will be presented with their honors at the annual black-tie awards dinner on November 13, 2015 at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada.
The LVEM25 is the most powerful desktop electron microscope. The LVEM25’s variable voltage (6-25kV) imaging capabilities make it a true competitor to a full sized TEM. The LVEM25 is able to work with biological and polymer thin sections that are prepared by standard procedures for conventional TEM.
The Finalists were selected by an independent panel of more than 70 judges. This year’s Finalists represent many of industry’s leading organizations and national laboratories, as well as many newcomers to the R&D 100 Awards, often referred to as the “Oscars of Invention.”
For the first time in its history, the winners of the R&D 100 Awards will be honored for exemplary accomplishments from across five categories: Analytical Test, IT/Electrical, Mechanical Devices/Materials, Process/Prototyping, and Software/Services. The 2015 Awards will also honor excellence in four new special recognition categories – Market Disruptor (Services), Market Disruptor (Products), Corporate Social Responsibility, and Green Tech.
"This was a particularly strong year for research and development, led by many outstanding technologies that broadened the scope of innovation,” said R&D Magazine Editor Lindsay Hock. “We are honored to recognize these products and the project teams behind the design, development, testing, and production of these remarkable innovations and their impact in the field. We look forward to celebrating the winners in November.”
