For those of you that don’t know Lucille Giannuzzi, she is a well-known figure in the FIB instrument industry and has a vast amount of knowledge and experience in the field of FIB sample preparation for TEM.


Lucille Giannuzzi exploited "lift out" in the mid to late 1990's after a light bulb went on the first time she saw a FIB being used for TEM specimen preparation of semiconductor materials. The technique subsequently known as ex situ lift out was used for a wide range of materials. After starting her own consulting and service business in 2010, Lucille revisited the ex situ lift out technique and developed added flexibility with a patented* grid design and method named EXpressLO™. She started offering ex situ lift out solutions including EXpressLO™ in 2012.  In the summer of 2013, Lucille spun these product offerings off and started a new company as President of EXpressLO LLC.


We would like to thank Lucille for the opportunity in exposing this exciting technique to Southern Africa and we are looking forward in working together.
