A PANalytical Empyrean XRD system is being installed at the Centro de Investigación en Materiales Avanzados, S.C. (CIMAV) in the state of Nuevo León (CIMAV-Monterrey).
CIMAV is a research center for advanced engineering materials located in two states in México, in Chihuahua since 15 years ago and more recently in Nuevo León. CIMAV Monterrey is located at the Research and Technology Innovation Park (PIIT) sharing with other research centers and companies to support one of the key strategies within the Monterrey International City of Knowledge Program.
Dr. Eduardo Martínez, lab manager at CIMAV-Monterrey states "CIMAV is getting the first EMPYREAN in México and we are so convinced that this will be just the beginning to expand capabilities in our XRD lab, and we intend to be the best equipped lab around the area. We truly consider that when dealing with PANalytical we have both excellent instruments and the best technical support."
CIMAV Monterrey is located just a few miles from the headquarters for PANalytical Mexico. PANalytical business manager Marcelo Mott looks forward to a long and fruitful partnership with the research center. "Our close proximity means we will have more opportunities to assist CIMAV with new XRD applications, we can co-organize scientific workshops, and we will be able to show an Empyrean in action in a real laboratory to our prospective customers."
