MiniTEM is a recommended analytical tool for the EU definition of nanomaterial

Automated MiniTEM analysis of material properties

MiniTEM has been selected as a recommended analytical tool within the ”NanoDefiner e-Tool” project. The objective of this project is to support the implementation of the EU Recommendation on the Definition of Nanomaterial and guide potential end-users, such as concerned industries and regulatory bodies in reliably classifying nano-material. Within this project, experts have developed a panel of validated measurement methods, techniques, instruments and software to classify existing and new advanced materials. A comprehensive evaluation of the performance of current characterization techniques, instruments and software has been performed according to their capacity to reliably measure size distribution of particulates in the range 1-100 nm.
