Cover of Analytical Chemistry highlighting the work done by Dr. Pinkhassik's lab personnel at the OLIS facility in 2012.
Dr. Pinkhassik’s story:
Eugene Pinkhassik had a few years under his belt as an OLIS client, owning an OLIS modernized SLM 8000 spectrofluorimeter, when he learned about our CLARiTY. The timing was perfect: he was moving from the University of Memphis to St. Louis University. So, he sent a post-doc and student here with samples. The results acquired during this day won him and his people over. Within a few months, they impressed the editors of Analytical Chemistry enough to land the coveted cover for that month. Fast forward to his recent move to UConn. His first CLARiTY remains in St. Louis and his second CLARiTY has been purchased for delivery in early 2015. When complimenting him on the number of publications his group has already made, his splendid reply was that “You ain’t seen nothing yet!”
Congratulations and continuing success to the purchaser of CLARiTY #4 (the model 620) and CLARiTY #24 (the model 1000), who identifies his research as “Making nanomaterials and nanodevices with new and superior properties to address current problems in energy-related technologies, medical imaging and treatment, and environmental sensing.”
