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.


10 megapixel SLM delivers 4k of super-resolution: New Ultra HD device from HOLOEYE

HOLOEYE Photonics has just released a 4094 x 2464 pixel resolution Spatial Light Modulator (SLM) with the introduction of the GAEA range.

Available in three models: TELCO (IR), NIR and VIS(ible), they will consist of a driver unit with HDMI digital video interface and a phase only LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) standard microdisplay 10 megapixel (4K) panel with a 0.7″ active area as measured diagonally. The very small 3.74 µm pixel pitch will enable high diffraction angles.

In addition, HOLOEYE’s PLUTO range of 1920 x 1080 pixel panels have recently been expanded with 8 models optimised for wavelength bands in the visible, infrared, or both.

Ultra-high Resolution Raman Spectroscopy from CRAIC Technologies’ Artemis™ System

Craic Technologies ArtemisUltra-high resolution Raman microspectroscopy is now available throughout the UK and Ireland as Elliot Scientific introduces the CRAIC Artemis™ Raman Spectrometer – available as an add-on for modern research grade microscopes, or as an option for CRAIC’s existing range of UV-Vis-NIR Microspectrophotometers.

Perfect for research, metrology and quality control, the CRAIC Artemis™ Raman system has been designed specifically for microscopic sample. Its patented virtual slit technology dramatically increases the sensitivity of the spectrometer, offers an extraordinarily large spectral range, yet maintains the high speeds and spectral resolution for which CRAIC microspectrometers are known.

The Artemis™ modules are available in many different laser wavelengths and two can be combined for the ultimate in experimental flexibility. Easy to use and economical to own and operate, they enable rapid sample analysis within life sciences, materials science, chemistry and physics.

Each module includes a choice of diode laser, imaging and microscope optical interface, durable solid-state Raman spectrometer, and software from CRAIC – the experts in microspectroscopy.
