The new CMQM conference, taking place at St. Andrews University, provides the UK’s Condensed Matter Physics community to present and discuss their research results in specialised disciplines, superconductivity, magnetism, organic photovoltaics, polaritons and light-matter interactions among others.
For just two days of this three day event, July 3rd and 4th, we will be exhibiting our range of materials characterisation equipment. If you are attending the conference, or are a physics student at the university, we look forward to meeting you.
The Microscience Microscopy Congress (MMC) takes place from Monday, July 1st to Thursday the 4th at Manchester Central.
With 36 conference sessions, an exhibition with more than 100 companies, workshops, training opportunities and a busy social programme it’s the must-attend event for the UK’s microscopy community.
WITec, pioneers of commercial 3D Raman imaging and correlative microscopy are exhibiting on Stand 331 and Elliot Scientific will be supporting them.
The company continues to lead the industry with a unique product portfolio that offers speed, sensitivity and resolution without compromise. Raman, AFM, SNOM and SEM (RISE) microscopes, and combinations thereof, are offered for specific challenges in chemical and structural characterisation through a modular hardware architecture and flexible software combination.
The biennial photonics-fest that is colloquially named LASER Munich opens this morning.
Exhibitors will be demonstrating their wares that include optics, lasers, instrumentation and all things related, to over 30,000 visitors across the four days of the show.
We look forward to seeing you.
The Elliot Scientific June 2019 Newsletter: In this issue we welcome nPoint and their range of piezo-actuated nanopositioning flexure stages, and Microscope Heaters who do what it says on their tin – heat microscopes with fanless incubation systems. We also announce that our Optical Tweezer systems now come with Microsoft’s Windows 10, and that EXFO have launched the Optical Xplorer – the world’s first OFM. Plus Laser World of Photonics in Munich next week and a whole host of materials science and microscopy trade shows coming up next month.

Surrey-based Digital Pixels has been designing and supplying equipment for the research microscopy community throughout the world for nearly two decades. More recently, under the Microscope Heaters brand, they have developed, designed and manufactured a wide range of fanless enclosure systems for maintaining cell viability within microscope applications for leading universities and research institutes.
Vibration-free microscope heating systems deliver the ultimate in thermal homogeneity and stability. Ideal for the more demanding microscopy techniques such as Super Resolution, Optical Tweezers or electrophysiology: even users of x60 or x100 objectives can benefit as focus drift is reduced. These solid-state heaters can maintain 1 to 50 °C heat above ambient depending on configuration, thus allowing for a wider range of samples to be studied. Inherent reliability means less down time during time-lapse experiments.
These assemblies have independent temperature control over the insert, and the insert’s glass top. They are sealed to maintain CO2 or CO2-O2 gas control, and accept a 3 mm tube for gas delivery.
Open Heated Inserts
Patch clamp and perfusion studies, where access to the sample is essential, benefit from this type of system. It has an optional dual temperature control configuration for controlling the temperature of the heated insert, and the temperature of media entering the sample area.
Intravital Microscopy Imaging System
Specially designed for whole animal viability during extended imaging experiments, the system has two independent temperature control channels – one for the removable heated insert, the other for a heated blanket. Titanium windows complete the system.
A number of cell systems often require a closely controlled CO2 concentration to maintain cell viability over extended periods of time. Although achievable using a 5% CO2 cylinder, these expensive and bulky solutions are limited in their ability to deliver flexible and reliable gas concentrations. Microscope Heaters offer three, high-performance, microprocessor controlled solutions that only require a single 100% CO2 gas supply.
Elliot Scientific is pleased to announce that it has been selected by nPoint, Inc. to be the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor of their nanopositioning solutions.
nPoint specialises in piezo actuator driven flexure stages available in one, two or three axes of motion. In conjunction with their ultra-precision motion control scanners and controllers, users can achieve the highest levels of performance available in the marketplace. Typical application areas are:
Life Science / Microscopy – piezo stages provide accurate, fast, and repeatable motion that enable high-throughput data acquisition and processing for techniques such as super resolution microscopy, sample scanning, autofocus, and cell tracking.
Semiconductor / Data Storage – nanopositioners are used in production, development, and inspection of silicon wafers and hard disk recording heads.
Optics – high speed nanopositioners enable movement of an optic for a multitude of precision applications such as scanning, laser beam steering, phase shifting, dithering and focusing.
AFM / Materials Science – piezo stages have been traditionally used as closed-loop scanners for Atomic Force Microscopes, offering extremely low out-of-plane motion, no piezo drift, exceptional scanning linearity, and longer travel ranges.
Photonics Packaging / Communications – in fibre optics, nanopositioning stages have become critical for speedy and optimal alignment duties.
Elliot Scientific will be demonstrating nPoint technology at various UK trade events this year, and looks forward to enabling researchers and OEMs achieve significant benefits from incorporating nPoint systems within their applications.
Photonex Glasgow happens next week, bringing together the UK’s top photonics technology suppliers, leading researchers and invited speakers for a very special one-day event on June 5th at Strathclyde University.
Elliot Scientific will be among the companies dedicated to optics, photonics and imaging technology, allowing you to view the latest photonics solutions, optical components, instruments and systems, as well as join in a conference all about the latest techniques and applications.
Photonics is an enabling technology, so you can only really find out how a company can help you in your work by face-to-face contact. Elliot Scientific’s Solution Science is more than just a slogan, it’s our approach to providing the tools and equipment you need to get the results you want. Come and talk to us about your project.
Early next week, a webinar entitled Raman Microscopy for Microparticle Analysis: Find, Classify and Identify is being broadcast by WITec and Nature.
It takes place on Tuesday, June 4th at 16:00 BST, that is 08:00 PDT, 11:00 EDT, and 17:00 CEST.
Dr. David Steinmetz and Dr. Miriam Böhmler from WITec GmbH will give an introduction to Raman microscopy and automated particle analysis.
They will be followed by Dr. Natalia Ivleva, from TU Munich, who will present her work on microplastic pollution in environmental samples as an application example.
For more information and registration, please visit the webinar homepage.
Speakers from Germany, the USA and China will be at the 16th Confocal Raman Imaging Symposium being organised by our friends WITec in September.
Running from the 23rd to the 25th in Ulm, Germany, the symposium will cover aspects of modern Raman imaging and include a poster session detailing recent results in Raman imaging from various scientific fields.
An in-depth introduction to the operational principles and instrumental configurations relevant to confocal Raman microscopy will also be held at the equipment demonstrations.
During the three-day conference participants will be able to have in-depth discussions and networking opportunities with leading scientists and users of WITec microscope systems.
So, if you’re a scientist interested in chemically identifying and imaging samples at the highest spatial resolution, sign up here.
The Iridian range of filters for imaging, fluorescence, Raman and optical spectroscopy is now available in the UK and Ireland through Elliot Scientific.
Scores of filters designed for bandpass – both short and long, edge pass, narrow notch and dichroic mirrors have been added to our website.
They are used in many spectroscopic investigations such as flow and emission cytometry, excitation and emission fluorescence, and more. Imaging filters for use in machine vision applications are available too.
We can also advise on custom filters for very specific scientific applications, and welcome OEM enquiries.
