Company History
Imago Scientific Instruments was founded in 1998 by Dr. Thomas F. Kelly, then a professor at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. In September, 2001 Imago completed its first LEAP® Microscope and began analyzing specimens. That instrument represented a true milestone in microscopy yielding the largest analysis volume, largest field of view, and fastest data collection ever reported for an atom probe microscope. The LEAP® Microscope demonstrated it could provide the means to bring the three-dimensional atom probe (3DAP) into the mainstream. In April 2010 Imago was acquired by AMETEK Inc. for $6 million.
