Our History

Lucille Giannuzzi exploited "lift out" in the mid to late 1990's after a light bulb went on the first time she saw a FIB being used for TEM specimen preparation of semiconductor materials. The technique subsequently known as ex situ lift out was used for a wide range of materials. After starting her own consulting and service business in 2010, Lucille revisited the ex situ lift out technique and developed added flexibility with a patented* grid design and method named EXpressLO™. She started offering ex situ lift out solutions including EXpressLO™ in 2012.  In the summer of 2013, Lucille spun these product offerings off and started a new company as President of EXpressLO LLC. EXpressLO LLC and customers are applying manipulation methods to FIB/PFIB specimens, particles, fibers, thin films, CNTs, and diamond anvil cell work.
