We are in Edinburgh next week for IUPAB / EBSA

The joint 19th International Union of Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB) and 11th European Biophysical Societies’ Association (EBSA) Congress takes place in Edinburgh next week.

From Sunday, July 16th to Thursday the 20th., the British Biophysical Society and the Biological Physics Group of the Institute of Physics (IOP) will host an outstanding scientific programme for this major international combined biophysics event. All areas of contemporary biophysics will be included in a varied programme covering single molecule studies to complex machineries.

Elliot Scientific will be demonstrating a complete system from our Optical Tweezers range that features tracking and force measurement on exhibition days: Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. You can also ask us about nanopositioning equipment for the microscope from Mad City Labs, as well as LED light sources and instruments designed for microscopy and optogenetics studies from Prizmatix, the LDLS – a novel super bright broadband lamp from Energetiq Technologies, and Spatial Light Modulators from HOLOEYE.

We can be found on Stand 40 within the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.

 


Tomorrow, the Photonex Roadshow returns to Scotland

The Photonex Roadshow returns to Glasgow tomorrow, bringing together the UK’s top photonics technology suppliers, leading researchers and invited speakers for a very special one-day event on June 14th at the University of Strathclyde.

Elliot Scientific will be among the dozens of companies dedicated to optics, biophotonics and imaging technology – allowing you to view the latest photonics solutions, optical components, instruments and systems, as well as a conference and tutorials.

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.

We will be demonstrating our ranges of precision slides and flexure stages, the ultra-bright laser-driven plasma light source from Energetiq, nanopositioners from Mad City Labs, and much more. Come and talk to us about your project.

Long-range Z-axis nanopositioning stage is especially designed to hold multiwell plates

The Mad City Labs‘ Nano-ZL Series are long range, Z-axis nanopositioners specifically designed to hold multiwell plates used in biomedical research. High-throughput single cell fluorescence microscopy and high speed, high resolution confocal imaging can be accomplished while simultaneously adjusting the Z-axis position to remove the effects of multiwell plate irregularities.

The Nano-ZL Series has true flexure guided motion and contains internal position sensing for a resolution of better than 1 nm over the full 500 µm travel range, and sub-nanometer for the shorter 100 µm travel range. In addition to high resolution spatial imaging, the Nano-ZL step response allows entire Z-section acquisitions with minimal photo bleaching. For more information, please contact us.

Mad City Labs introduce new low profile 3-axis nanopositioner

Ideal for applications in optical trapping, microscopy, fluorescence imaging, single molecule spectroscopy and super resolution microscopy (SRM), the new Nano-LPMW from Mad City Labs is a unique 3-axis nanopositioning system designed to hold multiwell plates, slides, dishes and environmental chambers.

MCL-LPMWThe Nano-LPMW has a low profile and extra-large centre aperture with 200 micron range of motion in all three axes. The low height of the Nano- LPMW Series allows it to be easily integrated into existing inverted optical microscopes and is compatible with a large range of microscope stages.

Like the related Nano-LPS Series, the Nano-LPMW is ideal for demanding microscopy applications which require long range travel, high stability, and three axes of motion.

The Nano-LPMW is the only 3-axis nanopositioning system which can hold multiwell plates and incubators, and deliver precise and repeatable motion. A function made possible through closed loop control combined with PicoQ® position sensors.

For more information, please contact us.
