Direct Electron is committed to bringing the latest innovations in imaging technology for electron microscopy to researchers worldwide, thus enabling new scientific discovery. Our vision, Innovation Propelling Discovery® guides our technology development, market participation, and product offerings.
Founded in 2007 to bring the latest technological developments in CCD camera systems to the EM market, Direct Electron is also leading the development of the next generation of detector technology for EM, the Direct Detection Device (DDD™). The DDD™ images high-energy electrons directly, thus avoiding the electron-to-light conversion process of a scintillator, and thereby achieving unprecedented sensitivity and resolution.
Direct Electron draws on more than 20 years of experience providing high-performance CCD camera systems to academia, governments, and industry. Our affiliates are recognized market leaders in astronomy, drug discovery, high-energy physics, x-ray protein crystallography, and general quantitative imaging. Direct Electron customers can be assured of excellence in performance, reliability, and ease of operation, along with suburb pre and post sales service and support.
