16th Confocal Raman Imaging Symposium announced

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.

Meet us at Focus on Microscopy 2019 from Sunday

The Focus on Microscopy (FOM2019) conference and exhibition begins this Sunday morning, April 14th, at the QEII Conference Centre in London, and runs for four long days.

FOM is an annual event that takes places in various countries around the world, presenting the latest innovations in optical microscopy and their application in biology, medicine and the material sciences. Topics will cover:

  • 3D optical imaging and image processing
  • Adaptive optics for microscopy
  • Coherent non-linear microscopies
  • Confocal and multiphoton-excitation microscopy
  • Correlated microscopies, light/electron
  • Developments in resolution and imaging
  • Fluorescence image, labelling and spectroscopy
  • Laser manipulation and tracking
  • Light sheet microscopy
  • OCT and holographic endoscopy
  • Phase/interference based microscopies
  • Raman spectroscopy imaging
  • Super-resolution nanoscopy
  • … and more

Elliot Scientific will be on stand 2 at the sold-out exhibition. We will be featuring Accurion active anti-vibration products; ultra-bright LED light sources from Prizmatix; and manipulators, stages and other microscopy accessories by Siskiyou.

Come and chat to us about our Optical Tweezer systems, digital holographic microscopes (DHM) from Lyncée Tec, and WITec confocal Raman imaging microscopes. We also offer Patch Clamp amplifiers manufactured by Tecella and the Kinetic Systems’ passive anti-vibration table and platform range, as well as HOLOEYE SLMs and CRAIC Technologies’ microanalysis systems.

For readers keen on acronyms and abbreviations, here a selection to get your teeth into: FCS, FLIM, FRAP, FRET, GSDIM, PALM, SHG, SIM, SOFI, STED, STORM, THG, and TIRF

Our email will be down this weekend

Due to essential maintenance, our computer systems will be offline from 5 pm GMT on Friday, March 1st 2019 until about  8:30 am GMT Monday, March 4th.

During this time, any email sent to Elliot Scientific will bounce, so please refrain from sending anything to us during this period.

The website will still be available, however any contact messages or requests for quotes will not be received.

Online orders could be delayed too, so it may be best to place these when we are back at our desks.

Our Social Media accounts are not affected, and messages via Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook will let you know when all is up and running again.

Thank you for bearing with us…

We would like to say a big thank you…

We would like to say a big thank you to the people who visited our booth at Photonics West 2019 and met with Dr. Adrian Knowles in his new role as Elliot Scientific’s Managing Director. You certainly made it a successful event all round for both him and us.

Many visitors were impressed by our Elliot|Martock compact stage portfolio. These precision engineered dovetail slides are offered in a range of sizes and travels, delivering smooth backlash-free motion in X, XY, XZ, YZ or XYZ directions. Of particular interest to some were the miniature rotation stages.

Our Optical Tweezers demonstration videos are always attention grabbers, and a number of biophysicists and scientists from other disciplines stopped by to discuss how our cost-effective systems could help them in their projects. Researchers working within tight budgets were delighted to hear that Elliot Scientific laser trapping could be added to their existing (expensive) microscope without the need to buy a whole new instrument.

Elliot|Martock Gold Series Flexure Stages also proved of interest to many involved in light, optics and electronics due to their versatility. These world-renowned devices offer superior manipulation in three axes, and with minimal arcuate displacement they enable nanometre positioning for critical applications that include fiber launch and waveguide alignment. A comprehensive range of standard and customisable accessories are available too.

If you didn’t get to see us and our products at Photonics West, please visit our website or contact us for more information.

 

 


Photonics West opens today – Elliot Scientific in Booth 4660

The annual Photonics West group of exhibitions and conferences organised by SPIE – the international society for optics and photonics – opens today and runs till Thursday at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.

Elliot Scientific is exhibiting in Booth 4660 – look out for our banner (right) and new background (below).

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.
