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.

Back in 1968 a new company was incorporated in Boston…
For fifty years the company has been at the forefront of vibration isolation and control, developing many state-of-the-art technologies used in vibration isolation, damping, and structural design thanks to continuous research into the effects of vibration on equipment and structures.
Kinetic Systems is a trusted name in academic, industrial, and government research facilities worldwide. The company offers the best in advanced vibration isolation and optical tables for metrology, interferometry, laser research, semiconductor manufacturing, and virtually any other application where external vibrations can adversely affect the operation of precision equipment.
If you have a vibration isolation problem then please contact us for further information.
Halcyonics range of active vibration isolation systems by Accurion now available through Elliot Scientific
For over 20 years the Halcyonics brand name has been associated with market-leading Active Vibration Isolation solutions.
Designed and manufactured by Accurion, the company’s portfolio of platforms, workstations and modular support units can be found in labs throughout Europe and beyond. Now, Elliot Scientific brings this popular anti-vibration product range to the fore in the UK and Ireland.
Applications that can benefit from a Halcyonics system include: scanning probe microscopy, inverted optical microscopy, confocal microscopy, profilometry, nanoindentation, patch-clamp setups, laser experiments, ultra-precise weighing, micromanipulation such as IVF, Hi-Fi turntables and many more.
Accurion offer Benchtop, Workstation, and Heavy-duty Halcyonics systems to provide active electronic vibration isolation for sensitive equipment. This can range from a small instrument to a large apparatus that might weigh hundreds of kilos.
The Elliot Scientific September newsletter is now available as a PDF. In this issue we preview next week’s emc2012 and MICROSCIENCE, highlight FEMTOLASERS & FEMTOOPTICS, look at Lake Shore’s new Electromagnet PSU, promote Photonex, and more.

A fully revised, expanded, and updated Elliot Scientific Optical Tweezer brochure has been published. This new catalogue covers all the Optical Tweezer equipment and systems for laser trapping Elliot Scientific offers. It includes details on:
- Component-based “open architecture” optical tweezers
- Self-contained portable, desktop single beam optical tweezer workstations
- Single spot optical tweezer for integration with commercial microscopes
- Multiple spot optical tweezer under full computer control integrated with commercial microscopes
- Force Measurement accessory for single trap stiffness using a Quadrant Photodetector (QPD)
- Force Measurement accessory for multiple trap stiffness, multiple particle tracking using Camera Particle Tracking (CPT)
The brochure will be available at all of the events Elliot Scientific will be attending in 2012. Alternatively, you can contact us for further information and a printed copy, download the PDF version, or read it online via our Issuu channel.
