we are looking back to an exciting year 2017 which brought us many highlights: With DECTRIS USA, our first subsidiary, we are now even closer to our US customers. At the IUCr Congress in Hyderabad we announced our new EIGER2 product family for your most challenging scientific applications. In November, Nobel laureate Richard Henderson, who has successfully tested a DECTRIS prototype for electron microscopy, stopped by for a visit. And we won the renowned Swiss Venture Club prize, for the most innovative company in northern Switzerland. What a great reward for our more than 100 employees and a motivation on our mission to develop even better X-ray and electron detectors. But our greatest reward is your success with our products, and we want to see more of it next year! I wish you a very successful 2018!
Christian Brönnimann, President and CEO
DECTRIS rewards innovative science
If you've successfully used a DECTRIS HPC detector in an innovative, unusual or difficult way, submit your work to the DECTRIS award. If you're the winner you will receive 500 CHF to spend freely and 500 CHF to subsidize attendance of a conference of your choice.
DECTRIS president and CEO Christian Brönnimann was picked as the winner of the year in the category Business Leaders by the Aargauer Zeitung. The newspaper praised the success of our company, the continued growth in revenue and numbers of employees, and our recent expansion to the US. We're excited to continue this journey with you in 2018.
With a STOE STADI P equipped with a MYTHEN2 2K detector system in clever geometry, you can collect X-ray powder diffraction rata at unprecedented quality in your laboratory. Even simple systems like adenine can reveal surprises thanks to the high spatial, diffraction and temporal resolution of the data.
To end the year on a bang, DECTRIS won the Prix SVC Northern Switzerland in December. With the biennial award, the Swiss Venture Club honors companies that turn innovation and entrepreneurship into lasting success. We are extremely proud to win this prestigious award, which we'd like to dedicate to you, our loyal customers.
Sometimes, learning is fun. Sometimes it's hard work. But it's always the best way out of poverty. To support early education in rural India, we've dedicated a part of our Christmas budget towards the great work of Arunachala Village School. You can help us make a difference.
