Admittedly, this particular post has not much to do with Kanāda`s Kids'
featured topics (NanoGaming and NanoArt), and I do further confess that, on occasion, a post might be an ostensible excuse for me to share an image by which I`m captivated or tickled (as in this instance). No matter; may the below be of benefit to someone, somewhere...:
Periodically, I refer to LabX
for auction/bid updates on certified, pre-owned, used, and refurbished microscopes. (I'm pursuing the possibilities of nano-applications for the purposes of conservation, restoration, and preservation of manuscripts, scrolls, and such).
So. this morning while reviewing old e-mails, I read recent updated SEMs listings via LabX,
searching for everything from Celestron's LDM microscopes to Hamamatsu NanoZoomers, and other library-specific scanning tools. Considering that a micrograph of one of the 2008 Olympus BioScapes Digital Competition entrants (Earl Nishiguchi of Hawaii) was amog the honourably-mentioned (utilizing 16-year-old apparatus which sits on his kitchen table), I intuit that I can get to where I want to go (for now) via these means.
Scientific equioment is sold, bought, bartered, traded on LabX (http://www.labx.com/), but among the listings are also announcements. Via LabLinks, University surplus property associations can also be accessed.
While browsing through LabAuction and SEM listings, I came upon this job announcement: ENGINEERS WANTED
for this job:
from this USA company:
International Equipment Trading Ltd.
which deals in certfied, pre-owned, analytical lab instruments.
IET offers relocation package, according to the advertisement.
