Elliot Scientific now representing Raman Imaging specialists WITec in the UK and Eire

Unique correlative analysis in one instrument: Raman/AFM, Raman/SNOM

Elliot Scientific has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with WITec GmbH, of Ulm in Germany, to distribute their range of award-winning Raman imaging instruments.

WITec is a market leading manufacturer of high-quality micro- and nano-analytical imaging equipment featuring confocal Raman microscopy, Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and Scanning Near-field Optical Microscopy (SNOM) techniques for the geoscience researcher, forensic scientist, pharmaceutical lab technician, semiconductor manufacturer, and food and drinks technologist.

The WITec product line of high-resolution SNOM, AFM and confocal Raman imaging solutions will be the responsibility of our Managing Director, Dr. Adrian Knowles.

Adrian is a qualified chemist and is well known within the spectroscopy community, especially within the field of Raman spectroscopy. His knowledge encompasses a wide range of technologies that include CCD cameras, fibre-optics, microscopy systems, Raman spectrometers and fluorimeters. His broad market visibility has been fundamental in the success and growth of several photonics and spectroscopy companies during his 20 year career.

Our team of scientists and engineers has nearly 30 years of experience in sales of light-based technologies to academia and industry. With expertise in key WITec application areas of forensics, geoscience, the life sciences, materials science, photonics and semiconductors, Elliot Scientific is the ideal partner for supporting WITec instruments within the UK and Ireland.

New High Brightness White Light Fibre Coupled Light Source from Prizmatix

The HB-FC-White high-brightness fibre-coupled light sources from Prizmatix are designed especially for OEM illumination applications in life science instrumentation, machine vision.

The HB-FC-White is a self-contained light source that includes all the necessary driver electronics and a thermal management system – no special controller box is required to operate the unit if used at the preset power.

  • Single chip long-life LED
  • High brightness cool-white light
  • High power from a small core fibre
  • Isolated TTL and analogue input
  • Optional fast TTL switching (200 ns)
  • Low optical noise
  • Optional remote control
  • Optional USB or RS-232 control
  • For OEMS:
    • Simple integration
    • I²C remote control protocol

Typical optical power from distal end of 1 m fibre:

Fibre Type Fibre Core Fibre NA Output Power
Polymer 1000 µm 0.63 460 mW
Polymer 500 µm 0.63 245 mW
Glass 250 µm 0.66 110 mW
Silica 50 µm 0.2 0.5 mW

Got the shakes? Our vibration isolation systems should calm things down.

Vibration noise is a nuisance for many precision applications in science and industry. Passing road, rail or air traffic, building resonances, co-workers,  air conditioning, lifts and other machinery and equipment all pose a threat to your sensitive instruments. This could be a high-powered microscope, a delicate micromachining system, a life science experiment, or a laser-based optical set-up.

Elliot Scientific offers a choice of both passive and active vibration isolation systems from leading manufacturers for your application. Whether you require a simple benchtop platform, an optical table, workstation, or custom system, we can help.

We also supply Hi-Fi audiophiles with affordable antivibration solutions for decoupling high-end turntables so as to get the most from their vinyl.
