Partnering opportunity

Up-to-date and advanced surface imaging, analysis and metrology software for use with profilers and microscopes

Summary

A French company specialized in surface and image analysis working on a new updated and advanced version of its software is looking for licence agreements and commercial agreements with technical assistance with manufacturers of scientific instrumentation (scanning electron microscopes, scanning probe microscopes, profilometers, spectral analyzers etc.) to integrate its image/surface analysis solutions in their equipment. Cooperation with research institutes is also sought.

Partner sought

The French company is looking for license agreements or commercial agreements with technical assistance with: - Scientific instrument (microscope or other surface measuring device) manufacturers whose customers wish to visualize, analyze and report on data obtained using these instruments - Research/academic institutes using one or several types of scientific instrumentation and requiring data analysis tools - Labs in industrial facilities, - Distributors of scientific instrumentation - Instrument users. The French company will bring technical assistance as for instance training or specific developments according to the partner's needs.

Description

The French company has been developing surface imaging and metrology software for profilers and microscopes for more than 25 years. Its main focus is on working as a partner with instrument manufacturers worldwide, in the fields of surface metrology and microscopy. The software is offered by profilometer and microscope manufacturers, embedded in their equipment or available as an option. The French company also provides software packages directly to instrument users with licences worldwide.The software is available in 11 languages, supports ISO and national metrology standards. Compared to other solutions which are more complex and slower, it works with an ultrafast algorithm bringing in few seconds a 3D colorised representation of shapes and their volume, their structure, roughness or thickness, Application areas include: automotive, material science, biomolecules, semiconductors, medical, aerospace, MEMS (microelectromechanical systems), renewable energy, etc. The company is working on a new version of the software to be released in 2019 which will include new possibilities and functionalities for applications in the field of nanotechnologies for analysis from the nanometer scale to the millimeter scale with a powerful set of tools for visualising, analysing and reporting on data. The software is the most complete surface analysis software on the surface measurement and inspection market today and allows analysis of data obtained from a wide range of instrument families all in one place, with the same software. The following types of measurement instrument are just some of those supported: 3D optical profilers, scanning profilometers, scanning probe microscopes, scanning electron microscopes, light microscopes, spectrometers etc. The software is continuously updated and now opens the doors to the nanoworld for specific applications including the biotechnologies and healthcare sector. Applications can be for instance : in the field of biotechnologies or healthcare sector : - Research on bio-oil fermentation by micro-organisms as a potential source of bio-fuel, - Investigation of stem cell structure, - Advanced bioceramics / bone-tissue engineering. In the field of nanotechnologies: - Research on nanoscale electronics, - Characterisation of nanoparticles on lithographic patterns, - Study of semiconductor nanowires. The French company is continuously looking for new partnerships with manufacturers of scientific instrumentation and wants to explore new ways of cooperation with end-users in industry or research laboratories with a possibility of creating a unique synergy between all the different instruments they are using.

Advantages and innovations

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
