Microvision Instruments was started in 1992 by Olivier Huin - the current president of the company - and is headquartered at Evry (30 km south of Paris, near the Orly airport). It was initially set up to design and market image analysis and measurement systems, but with time their portfolio has broadened to include microscopes and accessories, cameras, customised projects and, of course, Linkam heating products.
While they supply their image processing systems across the world, they are Linkam's main independent partner for the French domestic market, with their business cutting across all market sectors in the public, private and research domains. Microvision attends several exhibitions each year and is a regular attendee at the Forum Lab Biotech and MesurExpo exhibitions.
The company has just celebrated its 20 year anniversary and includes some experienced hands among its team of 11 staff, such as Gilles Vaillant (22 years experience in the microscope world) who has the responsibility for promoting Linkam equipment.
Please make sure you visit them in October at the MesurExpo,
