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.

 


Photonex Europe Live! opens in Coventry tomorrow – Stand B10 for Elliot Scientific

Elliot Scientific returns to stand B10 at Photonex in Coventry tomorrow and Thursday, offering the chance to experience the quality of our internationally renowned Elliot|Martock range first hand.

Exported the world over, our XYZ flexure stages are used for alignment and fiber launch in research and production environments, while our portfolio of miniature translation and rotary stages are often incorporated into OEM products for the optical and semiconductor industries.

For the first time at Photonex we will have items from the Siskiyou catalogue, including their sought after IXF mirror mounts so you can discover how they deliver their exceptional pointing stability in thermally demanding situations.

Also new for 2018 are high speed lasers from IPG Photonics. Operating in the pico and femtosecond regimes, these green and IR lasers are ideal for scientific and medical research.

Finally, life scientists love our Prizmatix ultra high power LED light sources, so we thought you might like to see them too.

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.

 


Busy month for Optical Tweezers people

It’s been a busy month so far for our Optical Tweezers & Laser Trapping group, with over 50 research papers brought to the attention of the 500 plus members of the group on LinkedIn.

Meanwhile, it’s day 3 of the Optical Tweezers and Optical Manipulation conference (OTOM XV) taking place during SPIE’s Optics + Photonics conference and exhibition in San Diego.
