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 (, 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.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
