JEOL and College of Microscopy Increase Partnership
March 10, 2009
Jeol USA, supplier of electron microscopes, and the College of Microscopy, the education division of the McCrone Group, have announced an increased partnership and joint commitment to improving the study of microscopy.
Jeol will provide a new JSM-6610LV low vacuum high-performance scanning electron microscope (SEM) to the college for use in basic and advanced training in electron microscopy. Additionally, a JEOL staff scientist will teach existing SEM courses at the college, help develop specialized classes specifically using the JSM-6610LV and work with McCrone scientists to develop new applications for six JEOL instruments already onsite.
"We plan to use the new SEM to expand and maximize our hands-on vs. classroom ratio for each student," says Donald A. Brooks, president and chief executive officer of the McCrone Group Inc. "This new instrument will complement our existing curriculum and improve our ability to equip students with the latest knowledge and techniques."
