Prizmatix impresses at Neuroscience 2018

Prizmatix has been wowing the crowds at Neuroscience 2018 in San Diego this week with their self-contained UHP-M, an ultra-high power UV & Visible light source for many microscopy applications.

Incorporating two independently controllable Prizmatix large-chip LEDs, the UHP-M delivers broadband white light from a single 55 W LED, and high power UV from a single 10 W LED operating at 365, 385 or 405 nm depending on model ordered. The UHP-M offers:

  • Optically isolated TTL & analogue inputs
  • Fast TTL switching
  • Low optical noise
  • Long life (no lamp replacement)
  • Fanless operation
  • Remote control*
  • USB interface*

* The UHP-M requires no external control if operating at full power. However, if power levels need to be adjusted, the optional remote control or USB interface will be required.

Prizmatix also announced the introduction of a digital micromirror device (DMD) module for delivering light to cellular and subcellular targets. Applications include: optogenetics, uncaging, photoactivation and fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP).

The one megapixel DMD utilises a grid of 914 by 1140 independently controllable micromirrors to divert light to specific areas under study at over 1000 times per second.

This exciting new product offers almost spatial light modulator (SLM) performance without the need to use lasers, and we’ll know more about it soon.

There’s still time to visit Prizmatix in booth 3333 as Neuroscience 2018 continues until November 7th.

New Ultra High Power LEDs for Microscopy, Spectroscopy and Optogenetics from Prizmatix

The range of LED light delivery products for microscopy, spectroscopy, optogenetics, and other scientific research and industrial applications from Prizmatix, has been further expanded with the introduction of even higher power white light sources.

As a scientist-led company, Prizmatix understands the requirements of researchers when designing LED illumination systems. Available through Elliot Scientific in the UK and Ireland, this broad range of powerful LEDs operate across the spectrum for applications that include:

  • For microscopy and imaging – The UHP-T LED, one of the most powerful available today
  • Optogenetics – Single and dual wavelength systems for in-vivo and in-vitro research
  • Multi-wavelength LED systems offering modularity and versatility for customised setups
  • Fibre-coupled units, with up to 11 different LEDs, delivering light through a range of fibre options

STSI-All-250-1For in-vivo and in-vitro optogenetics, Prizmatix offer a full range of modules that start from single wavelength plug-and-go kits, to multi-wavelength systems for activation and silencing in the same fibre. From light sources to cannulae, and everything in between, Prizmatix provides all the components necessary for experimenters in neuroscience, neurobiology, electrophysiology, biochemistry and biophysics. Typical systems have been constructed by researchers for:

  • Detection & excitation
  • Intensity monitoring
  • In-line filtering, attenuation or polarisation
  • Reflectance or fluorescence detection for in situ, in vivo, or in vitro applications

Prizmatix have extensively developed various photonics products for use in neuro and bioscience research such as optogenetics, as well as traditional chemistry, biology and physics. For example, fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy, microscopy, and absorption measurement are typical applications.

Lake Shore’s new instrumentation on show at ICEC-ICMC from this afternoon

Lake Shore’s will be demonstrating some of their new instrumentation from today at the ICEC-ICMC Conference in Oxford. This next generation range of instruments offer higher levels of precision and more convenience for engineers, QC technicians, and lab researchers.

The Model 155 MeasureReady™ precision I/V source is ideal for demanding scientific applications requiring a precise low-noise supply of current or voltage, for example electronic material characterisation.

Lake Shore Model 155 Precision I/V Source Source

Two models are available; a DC only version, and the 155-AC model that can supply up to 1 W from DC to 100 kHz over a broad output range. These power supplies deliver a solid foundation for I/V curve, Hall effect, and other fundamental measurements.

The joint Lake Shore and Elliot Scientific team will also be happy to talk about the new F-series Teslameters, compatible Hall probes and 2Dex™ Hall sensors for challenging applications.

The F41 single-axis and F71 multi-axis teslameters work equally well on a benchtop or in a rack. The novel TiltView™ display makes them easy to operate even when mounted in the bottom of a rack. The designers have also ensured that probe swapping is quicker by incorporating a compact quick-release connector and integrated calibration data for all probes.

For more information, please contact us.

ICEC27-ICMC 2018 opens next week. Meet Lake Shore on the exhibition days.

The International Cryogenic Engineering (ICEC) and Materials (ICMC) Conferences are taking place in Oxford from September 3rd to the 7th.


ICEC27-ICMC 2018, to give it its correct name, also includes two days of exhibition for cryogenic related businesses. Accordingly, our good friends from Lake Shore Cryotronics will be flying in from Columbus, Ohio, to be on hand to talk about their extensive range of products for research in low temperature big and little physics, materials and superconductivity, cryobiology and more.

As Elliot Scientific supplies Lake Shore products within the UK and Ireland, our Dr Perry will also be on hand to assist with any enquiries on the Tuesday and Wednesday (5th & 6th September).

Both the conference and Lake Shore are celebrating 50th anniversaries this year. It is fifty years since ICEC was first held in this country, and also fifty years since Lake Shore manufactured its first product.
