Our company is focused on the upgrading  of existing back-scattering Laue cameras, which previously worked with Polaroid film to systems with  multi-wire detectors from Multiwire Laboratories Ltd. Ithaca, NY 14850 USA.  We, however, also project and install complete new systems using this technology.

This service includes the installation and adjustment of Multwire components with European standards and your individual existing equipment as well as the organization of the import, including insurance, handling of customs formalities in order to avoid customs costs for academic institutions, calibration of the Multiwire equipment as well as training and instruction of  the personnel in handling the system and the extensive software package from Multiwire.
