RICHARDSON, Texas and REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Zyvex
Corporation and XEI Scientific today announced an exclusive worldwide reseller
agreement for Zyvex to sell the Evactron(R) Anti-Contaminator Product. Under
this agreement Zyvex will also integrate the Evactron A-C with the Zyvex
Nanomanipulator/Prober and sell it as a unified system.
Zyvex's Nanomanipulator/Prober enables rapid-response device failure
analysis at the contact level for better, faster, and more cost-effective
IC development. A clean environment is critical when probing the most
advanced sub-100 nanometer feature size devices available in today's
The Evactron Anti-Contaminator Product quickly and gently cleans the
interiors of electron microscopes (including the probes, stages, and
specimens), providing a clean, contamination-free environment for sensitive
"The Evactron system is a perfect match for our Nanomanipulator products,"
said Zyvex President Thomas A. Cellucci, PhD, MBA. "This partnership will
enable our customers to minimize downtime, improve performance, and maximize
throughput in their high-value research and development or failure analysis
Zyvex's Nanomanipulator/Probers are compatible with scanning electron
microscopes and focused ion beam systems. The Evactron A-C Product stops
electron beam deposition of carbon polymers in the scanned area during
probing. This solves a major technical problem in scanning electron
"We are excited that Zyvex wants to use the Evactron A-C product as an
enhancement to the their Nanomanipulator product in scanned beam systems,"
said Ronald Vane, President of XEI Scientific. "The combination of our
Evactron product with the Zyvex Nanomanipulator confirms our leadership
position in anti-contamination technology."
Zyvex NanoWorks(TM) Products comprise flexible, cost-effective, modular
tools that promote interchangeability of sample/structural carriers.
Combining these with interchangeable NanoEffector(TM) tools provides a wide
array of experimental options -- whether the aim is to study meso, micro,
nano, or molecular based structures.
About the Companies
Zyvex Corporation, based in Richardson, Texas, is the first molecular
nanotechnology company. Zyvex's vision is to be the leading worldwide
supplier of tools, products, and services that enable adaptable, affordable,
and molecularly precise manufacturing. Zyvex commercializes nanotechnology to
address real-world applications with high growth potential. Zyvex carries its

XEI Scientific was founded in 1991 to make anti-contamination systems for
scanning electron microscopes (SEMs). The president of XEI Scientific
invented the Evactron A-C in 1999 to bring the speed and completeness of
plasma activated cleaning to SEMs without harming the instrument. In
2003, XEI took over its own manufacturing of the product and opened its own
factory in Redwood City, CA.
