The private owner of the biggest rough emerald in the world approached Glenbrook Technologies to perform an x-ray study of the stone (actual gem shown here). Specifically, THE ULTRA COMPACT system would be utilized as it’s patented camera can identify the internal features and details of the emerald at low x-ray voltage. THE ULTRA COMPACT is also ideal for other precious gemstones and cultured pearls.
Emeralds, are the most famous and valuable green gems. It’s rarity, makes it one of the most expensive gemstones in the world.
The emerald has previously gone through different studies performed by renowned gem entities.
Gil Zweig, President of Glenbrook Technologies, sees a great opportunity for growth, “Glenbrook x-ray inspection systems are presently used to evaluate pearls in Mynmar and industrial diamonds. This could be a turning point for us and the way gems are studied with our patented technology.”
The NJ Tech Council featured presentations focusing on new medical devices being developed by university and college researchers or at medical devices companies in the tristate (NJ, NY and PA area). Glenbrook Technologies gave a presentation by Jason Casatelli introducing the Bench-Top LabScope for Life Science Research and Training. The presentation discussed how the Bench-Top LabScope advanced new research for Dysphagia and provided training guidance for Cochlear Implants.

Many thanks to NJTC for presenting Glenbrook Technologies with this acknowledgement
Since 2005, Glenbrook has been supporting engineering and technology students by establishing The Glenbrook Technologies Scholarship at the County College at Morris (CCM) in Randolph, New Jersey. “We formed a scholarship because much of our futures will require talented young adults to design and build devices that will create and ensure the quality of all our lives,” notes Glenbrook’s founder Gil Zweig and his wife, Claire.
As part of the scholarship, all recipients work as interns at Glenbrook Technologies for hands-on experience to augment their academic work. “Innovation and invention both require academic and vocational knowledge.” says Gil Zweig, “And CCM provides the academic environment while our scholarship provides the rest.”
Meet Glenbrook’s College Scholarship Recipient, Philippe Clesca
Raised in West Orange, Philippe Clesca showed an early proficiency in technology, beginning with an online project at 16 which connected gamers worldwide in one place to interact, share and compete with one another.
“I fell in love with the challenge as well as the concept of computer science,” says Philippe. “The challenge is what hooked me, because rather than running from adversity, I run into it head on and try to overcome it.” As part of his scholarship, Philippe worked as an intern at Glenbrook this past March.
Today, more than half of Glenbrook’s employees are either CCM graduates or former students.
Glenbrook Technologies has installed the first of it’s kind, Micro-Fluoroscopy system The BenchTop LabScope,™ at New York University School of Medicine in Bellevue Hospital. The system will be used in the Department of Otolaryngology to train surgeons in performing cochlear implants.
