The Mel-Build policy.
We are developing for user efficiency of Transmission Electron Microscopes.
We are developing user friendly gadgets for all Transmission Electron Microscope users.
We are developing for science advancement.
We are to meliorate building of technology for users all over the world.

The story of Mel-Build since 2005.
First we realized the strong technological needs for further development of 3D Tomography.
Our first challenge was to make it possible to move a TEM sample for crystalline nanostructures.
The project was to develop a completely new specimen holder for 3D tomography purposes.
This project started in the summer of 2005, it was involving several engineers and high level TEM users.
The project itself succeeded, and as another result the company Mel-Build was founded.
New ideas and technology are co-developed by Mel-Build and Kyushu university.

Long Business Description:

Nanonics Imaging Ltd has developed a unique and highly differentiated product portfolio in the area of Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM). Over the last two decades its products have stood at the forefront of technology providing answers for a wide range of nanotechnological applications unavailable with other measurement tools.
In this area of SPM, Nanonics Imaging is one of the most innovative companies in the world and this innovation together with unparalleled customer support and collaboration has been the basis of its growth. Today Nanonics has 45 employees in its Jerusalem headquarters and representatives throughout the world.
Nanonics Imaging Ltd. was the first to realize that the integration of scanning probe microscopes with other standard techniques, such as optical microscopy, Raman microprobes, scanning electron microscopes and ion beam microscopes, would introduce critical added value to many of these measurement tools. Thus, its products were developed with such integration in mind and in a variety of these areas it was the first to market such products. It presently has singular and leading offerings in each of these areas.
Furthermore, Nanonics Imaging effectively overcame barriers that had prevented introduction of scanning multi probe microscopes, SPM systems with more than one probe. It was the first company and is still the only company to have a general multiprobe SPM solution including all forms of SPM measurements such as electrical, thermal, optical, mechanical etc.
In addition to the above, a central development of the Company is a novel form of optical microscopy invented by the Founder of Nanonics Imaging, Aaron Lewis. This technique is called Near-Field Scanning Optical Microscopy (NSOM) and Nanonics is a leader in this field worldwide. NSOM is being increasingly recognized as being critical in advancing areas of nano optics and in characterizing plasmonic and photonic devices, optical circuits, advanced opto-electronic components, silicon waveguides and devices and photonic band gap materials and devices.
These nano-optical measurement capabilities even extend to electron and ion beam instrumentation and this has brought super-resolution optical imaging to such areas as cathodoluminescence which have been limited in resolution by far-field optical methods.
In each area of its product offerings Nanonics Imaging has won numerous awards over the years. These awards cover all areas of microscopic innovation including Raman microprobe integration, multiprobe development, unparalleled scanner advances, forefront probe technologies etc. The company has collaborated with numerous companies such as Renishaw Plc, FEI etc providing SPM solutions that transform the offerings of these partners and allow them to reach new nanotechnological horizons.
In parallel Nanonics also has evolved a NanoTool KitTM of probes that are both multiprobe friendly and do not obscure the optical or the electron/ion optical axis of the microscope. This NanoToolKitTM includes optical, electrical, thermal and even probes providing nanovacuum and nanochemical writing capabilities. These latter probes allow for a unique methodology called NanoFountain Pen Nanochemistry which even permits nanochemical lithography on any surface and with any ink including inks that are gaseous reagents.
With its NanoToolKitTM and its highly differentiated offerings of SPM systems, fully protected by a portfolio of patents, Nanonics has shown great potential to provide measurement capabilities that simply have been unachievable in the past. In essence, the Nanonics Imaging combination of products forms the basis of a variety of measurement technologies that are increasingly becoming an integral component in a penetrating nanotechnological revolution that stands at the forefront of present and future technological revolutions.
