Expansion capital for next-generation imaging technology company

Amsterdam Scientific Instruments B.V. (‘ASI’), a leading vendor of advanced camera systems for X-ray imaging and electron microscopy, has received an investment from a consortium of investors led by TechNano Fund. Alongside this transaction the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) and Innovatiefonds Noord-Holland provided co-funding. ASI is a spin-off of Nikhef and AMOLF, both located at Amsterdam Science Park.

ASI’s camera systems are based on Medipix technology developed by a collaboration of leading physics research institutes under the coordination of CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. The cameras are deployed in leading experimental physics labs around the globe, including CERN and Nikhef. ASI’s products are increasingly used in the next generation of electron microscopes, X-ray imaging systems and mass spectrometers, both in research and in industry.

Willem van den Berg, Managing Partner of TechNano Fund adds “We believe in the vision of ASI and have a lot of confidence in the management team. We are excited about helping ASI to accelerate the company ”

The investment will enable ASI to scale up its organisation, strengthen its leading position in the scientific market and expand its business in new applications and markets. Furthermore, the investment allows ASI to implement an ambitious innovation program for the development of new technology for the next generation of products.
