In another coup for Autoscan, our MD has been invited to say a few words about our company and its products at his old Alma Mater ...

We have been kindly invited to speak about the role of our products at a workshop entitled "Irradiation of living cells with high resolution X-ray microbeam".

This is indeed an honour, and we look forward to speaking about a whole other role which our products have played, aside from our mainstream role in Fission Track Dating.
