WITec Raman imaging system installed in our lab for training

We’ve just installed a WITec apyron Raman imaging system in our demonstration lab here in Harpenden. The apyron was developed by WITec to straddle the boundary between ease-of-use and the ultimate in conformal capability. As such, it is ideal for:

  • Labs with multiple users of varied skill levels and requirements
  • Raman newcomers requiring advanced imaging
  • Accomplished Raman spectroscopists seeking superior performance
  • Industrial labs doing repeat experiments within limited time periods

apyron sets the benchmark for automated Raman imaging systems; delivering excellent images with outstanding spectral and spatial resolution. The ultra-fast acquisition times and exceptional signal sensitivity, combined with automated system configurations and intuitive measurement procedures, make the award-winning apyron the instrument of choice for many labs.

Now you can have the chance to experience the system first-hand. We will be running Raman imaging workshops in the near future, so watch this space.

In the meantime, for more information please visit WITec Raman imaging systems or contact us.

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.

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.

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.

 


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
