      Frank Nijpels started out as a technician in the instruments department at Maastricht University (UM) and the MUMC+. Now he is working on the Vitrojet, a new device that prepares samples for Cryo-electron microscopy. This form of microscopy requires samples to be cooled very rapidly to avoid crystallisation. The Vitrojet should largely automate this process of vitrification.

      Nijpels recently started a job at Cryo-Sol, a startup headquartered on the Brightlands Maastricht Health Campus. This spinoff company was founded to bring the Vitrojet to consumers.
