Expertise in scientific imaging

Tony Edwards

Business Development Manager

Tony has been involved in microscopy of various flavours all of his working life, from his first position in the early 1980s as an assistant research scientist in the materials technology department at the then Royal Military College of Science (now Defence Academy of the United Kingdom) through to his over 15-year tenure at ImSol. Somewhat unusually, initially specialising in electron microscopy (both scanning and transmission) and x-ray microanalysis before branching into advanced light microscopy and image analysis; utilising these instruments to address a range of metallurgical and materials research projects. Tony left academia for the commercial world in the early 1990s, joining Tracor Europa (latterly Thermo NORAN) as a sales engineer specialising in x-ray microanalysers but also promoting the company’s Tandem Scanning and newly developed Odyssey laser scanning confocal microscopes. Since this baptism he has carved a sales career in the commercial bioimaging sector primarily selling high capital value advanced optical microscopes, primarily in north and western Europe but also as far afield as Israel, South Africa and Russia; and worked for a number of specialist suppliers including Bio-Rad and Thermo NORAN prior to joining ImSol. His time with ImSol has centred on working with his service and applications colleagues to steadily and significantly grow the company’s DeltaVision and OMX microscopes installed base. Tony very much enjoys his role within the organisation and the contribution he is able to make to the business. Outside of work he enjoys watching sports (rugby/football/motor racing), cars and family but not necessarily in the order listed!
