Amsterdam Scientific Instruments (ASI) is a fast-growing high-tech company based at the Science Park in Amsterdam. The company was founded in 2011 as a spin-off of Nikhef, the National institute of particle physics, the NWO Institute for Subatomic Physics, and AMOLF, the NWO Institute for Physics of Functional Complex Matter.

ASI develops imaging detectors for X-rays, electron microscopy and mass spectroscopy. Our advanced imaging detectors differ in many ways from conventional cameras. Our cameras can give continuous streams of photon hits with coordinates and nanosecond timestamping information, instead of just frames.

Their hybrid pixel detectors are based on Cern‘s Timepix/Medipix technology and have been implemented by many leading research institutes worldwide. It is our absolute goal to deliver and continue developing high performance and high quality detection and imaging products to accelerate research.

Making the Invisible Visible is not only about technology. As a small company they are close to their clients and offer support and expertise to ensure the optimal use of their products.
