August 2016 Newsletter Out Now

August 2016 NewsletterThe Elliot Scientific August newsletter is now available. In this issue we announce several new products. We begin with Lake Shore’s new 240 Series distributed cryogenic temperature monitoring system for “Big physics” projects, Micro Laser Systems further expansion of their laser collimator portfolio, an extended range Z-axis nanopositioner for microscopists from Mad City Labs, and EXFO‘s latest benchtop optical power meter. Plus details of events coming in September.

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.
