At Cornell

Three Companies with CHESS roots


Multiwire, MiTeGen,
and Advanced Design Consulting U.S.A.

Multiwire Laboratories, Ltd.

Multiwire LogoMultiwire’s president, Donald Bilderback, CHESS/Applied and Engineering Physics, is a true x-ray veteran and a true Cornell veteran. Since 1981 his company has been developing and manufacturing products for rapid x-ray orientation of single crystals using the Laue back-reflection method. “Rapid” is the key word for making his product line a success.

MiTeGen, LLC

MiTeGen Logo“MiTeGen [was] founded to develop and manufacture products for the small molecule and macromolecular crystallography communities. Our strength and focus is on applying concepts and technologies from physics and related fields to address the practical problems faced by our friends and collaborators in the structural biology community.” Physics professor Robert E. Thorne, company founder and president, is referring to biologists whose goals are to understand the molecular structures responsible for living matter.

Advanced Design Consulting USA, Inc.

ADC LogoADC has a track record of developing new products for many government science and military organizations and has a solid patent portfolio, as a result. Company president Alex Deyhim attests that this record of success is firmly rooted in working with Cornell faculty, utilizing Cornell facilities, and collaborating on joint projects. Deyhim ’s education includes engineering as an undergraduate and business at Cornell ’s Johnson Graduate School of Management, as well as work experience at CHESS and managing the Cornell electronics packaging facility. This background gives Deyhim a perspective to bridge the gulf between the needs of customers and the creativity of a major research university like Cornell.
