Imina Technologies SA is born from the idea that conventional nanopositioning instruments used by scientists at the forefront of nanotechnology research are lacking of versatility to quickly adapt to ever changing experiments and needs. Over 10 years of research in high precision robotics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland (EPFL) allowed to demonstrate that a mobile robot equipped with a motion technology based on piezo actuators can satisfy this growing need.

The company was founded in 2009 and started the commercialization a year later of its pioneering miBot™, the world’s most compact mobile robot with nanometer resolution of positioning. Since then, Imina Technologies’ young and dynamic team puts its expertise in precision engineering and robotics in serving science by developing innovative solutions that make its unique manipulator to be used with an ever wider range of measuring instruments and microscopes.

Partnering with experts in miniaturization and manufacturing techniques, all Imina Technologies’ products are manufactured in Switzerland and meet the highest level of quality required by high precision instruments.

The jury reports emphasize two specific expectations to be met on the day of the test. Basically, it is first of all necessary to keep regularly informed of major societal issues in order to deepen one’s knowledge of general culture. For this, it is good to read regularly discover this info, throughout your preparation for the test, press articles in order to be able to use, on D-Day, the knowledge that will help in particular to deepen the argumentation skill. In addition, the reports stress that expression, and more broadly language proficiency, are essential elements. This is why we recommend being simple, concise and direct in the answers, without seeking to adopt too complicated turns which sometimes risk being false from a syntactic point of view.

Researchers in pharma, academia, biotech as well as global CROs can conduct optical imaging system for studying small animal disease model progression, response to therapy and cell migration in-vivo.

Molecular Vista based in California, designs, develops, and provides tools that allow its customers to probe and understand matter at the molecular level through quantitative visualization.

Its first product, VistaScope, provides a flexible hybrid atomic force microscopy (AFM) and optical spectroscopy platform for studying material & biological systems with chemical specificity with nanometer spatial resolution.

VistaScope is equipped with patented photo-induced force microscopy (PiFM) where the photo-induced polarization of the sample is measured directly in the near-field by detecting the time-integrated force between the tip and the sample.

Imaging infrared wavelengths specific to different chemical entities, PiFM can resolve the nanometer-scale distribution of each chemical species in diverse multi-phase and multi-component systems, thereby revealing an unprecedented and spectacular molecular vista to the researcher.

VistaScope is built upon an ultra stable and flexible optical platform with top, bottom and side illumination/collection (all with high NA) capabilities and can be offered equipped with complementary techniques such as scattering SNOM (Vista­ SNOM) and tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (Vista-TERS) .
