MPB Technologies Inc. (MPBT) was founded by M. P. Bachynski and started operations in early 1977 primarily as an R&D Company with a staff of eight people.
The business plan for this venture won the 1977 Canada Enterprise Award for a start-up company.
In 1985, a strategic plan was initiated to transform the Company in to a product-based operation where business activity would be primarily commercial and would compete in the international market. This approach required a very careful selection of niche market areas which built upon the Company's existing strengths. The result has been a select number of products whose performance equals or surpasses its competition world wide. The diversification eventually included works in Space, Fusion Technology, Electromagnetics, the Forest Industry, Robotics, and Lasers.
This product profile describes the properties and applications of the ProMetric® I-SC Solution Imaging Colorimeter.
The Filmetrics F20 benchtop film thickness measurement tool is a general purpose instrument for measuring thickness and refractive index.
Dynamic characterization of MEMs devices is achieved by Micro System Analyzer MSA-650 IRIS.
Dr. Keith Paulsen
AZoOptics speaks to Dr. Keith Paulsen about the importance of breast cancer detection and the introduction of his team's deep-learning algorithm that associates spatial images of tissue optical properties with optical signal patterns measured during an imaging experiment or patient exam.
Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino
AZoOptics speaks to Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino about their recent research using a new line-scanning high-speed atomic force microscopy technique. The method helps characterize the single-molecule kinetics of wild-type bR (bR-WT) exposed to continuous light and short light pulses.
