June 24, 2004 – Nanotech tool provider FEI Co. has opened the doors to its NanoPort, a high-tech product and applications center, in addition to its recently enhanced campus in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The center is intended to provide a base for European scientists working in the fields of materials science, semiconductors, data storage, biotechnology, structural biology, proteomics, and pathology. The NanoPort brings together the expertise of outside scientists and FEI developers for joint R&D such as the European Union’s Interaction Proteome project. The improvements at the company’s Eindhoven location bring the total area of its European development and operations center to nearly 17,000 sq. m.
