Market insight and need

The life science market is shifting. Recent successes in genetic medicine have paved the way for a broader wave of therapies and next-generation technologies. As conventional therapies mature, cell and gene therapies are emerging as the future of biopharmaceuticals, representing a pivotal approach to treat previously uncurable diseases and conditions. As a result, the global cell and gene therapy market is expected to grow from 3 to 27 billion dollars by 2025.

Development of novel therapies is a highly regulated, costly and time critical process – setting high standards for secure, reliable and intuitive systems across the entire production line. Vironova is in pole position to capture value and growth opportunities in this ever-evolving landscape. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) paired with our intelligent software and experience, is the leading method capable of producing a reliable and accurate analysis for the development of novel therapies.

MiniTEM™

MiniTEM is a compact and agile transmission electron microscope system designed for automated nanoparticle characterization. High-resolution images reveal particle morphologies that are transformed into accurate metrics.

Our MiniTEM system provides pharmaceutical organizations worldwide with an advanced semi-automated microscope which helps them to save time and hence frees up their time to do other tasks. It also increases reliability with its objective quantitative data and minimized risk of human error. Further, it enables both experts and non-experts to operate the microscope with less focus on the technology and more on the results itself. Using the system, clients will face a simple workflow all the way from sample preparation to particle analysis.  

The compact system offers an in-house solution where our clients do not have to wait for service providers. No special infrastructure is needed in order to use the system thanks to its profitable design, weight and technology. It is thereby suitable to be placed in traditional process development or analytical laboratories. MiniTEM is controlled by VIAS.

Be sure to book a free demo to see how our MiniTEM system can help your organization in your imaging and analysis processes. You can also request a quote where one of our senior TEM experts will contact you and provide you with more information about the price.

Vironova Analyzer Software (VAS)

VAS is a FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliant software used in TEM based image analysis of nanoparticles. VAS can be operated on MiniTEM and ViroTEM but also on other conventional TEM:s.

Analysis of objects in images can be performed using a combination of automatic analysis tools based on mathematical algorithms, and manually operated tools that aid a domain expert in assessing the images. 

Automation is enabled using machine learning, making it possible to set up methods to automatically classify particles. It helps our clients to save up to 12 hours of work on each sample, compared to manual operation.
