Due2Lab, the start

Due2Lab s.r.l. was founded in 2014 as an innovative start-up by a group of researchers trained at IMEM, the Institute of Materials for Electronics and Magnetism of the CNR (National Center for Research) in Parma, Italy, with proven leadership in the field of materials for detecting ionizing radiation.
Due2Lab specializes in the design and production of sensors and systems based on new semiconductor materials, particularly CdZnTe (CZT), for X-ray and Gamma-ray detection.
