MADISON, Wis., Sept. 30 -- Imago Scientific Instruments, a Madison-based manufacturer of analytical equipment, announced it has secured $7 million in financing for the development of its innovative LEAP microscope. Investors include Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Infineon Ventures, Draper Triangle, and Stanford University.
Imago's LEAP microscope provides information about the atomic-scale features of materials. "Unlike traditional microscopes that zoom in to see items at the microscopic level, Imago's microscope begins at the atomic-scale and zooms out," the company said. "This atom-by-atom analysis provides unique and potentially critical information for research institutes and semiconductor and data storage companies."
