Biophase: Digital Cell Imaging System from Phaseview

Biophase

BioPhase: provides in-situ stain free cell monitoring using brightfield objectives

BioPhase is an imaging device from PhaseView with unique capability of simultaneous acquisition of intensity and phase data at ultra high resolution, providing qualitative cell imaging and accurate quantitative measurements with outstanding key benefits.

Time lapse monitoring of 3D cell morphology can be performed without contrast agents with related photo toxicity and without specialized optics for free space manipulation. Cells can remain in situ in their growth medium using standard incubation flasks, Petri dishes or multi well plates.

The smart BioPhase camera is compatible with any optical microscope equipped with a video port and standard brightfield objectives. In addition fluorescence, confocal or TIRF images can be acquired using the same objective as well as providing simultaneously phase contrast imaging.

Unlike DIC or Phase Contrast techniques with halo or gradient side effects, BioPhase delivers true quantitative phase data for counting or volume measurements.

Ellipsometry: A Versatile Technique for Thin Film Measurement

Ellipsometry is a versatile and powerful optical technique for the characterisation of thin films in a very wide variety of contexts and applications. It works by measuring the change in the state of polarisation of light reflected off the surface of the film. Its extremely high sensitivity makes it an unequalled tool for the metrology of thin film surfaces. Lastek offers a selection of ellipsometers, from Nanofilm

Ames Photonics launch new website

Ames Photonics

Ames Photonics have launched an all-new website describing their extensive range of modular tools for spectroscopy.

Ames has been producing high quality CCD detectors since 1996. Their products are widely used in a broad range of applications including pulsed and ultrafast laser spectroscopy. Since then they have also evolved a suite of complementary products which make it possible for spectroscopists to assemble cost-effective complete systems from a wide range of interchangeable components, including visible and near-infrared detectors, advanced control software, hardware interfaces and instument integation. The new site includes details of their LARRY and GARRY series of linear CCD detectors, and their extensive range of innovative spectroscopic components and instruments. The recently releseased Oculus USB plug-n-play photodetector and the MMULS Multifunction Ultrafast Spectrometer are also both described in detail.

Holography without lasers

holograms without lasers

As a laser vendor, we should be supressing this information, but it's so cool we can't help share it. Here's an excellent article explaining how to create hand-made holograms with just a few simple tools. No laser required! Amazing. Read all about it here, or to watch a video, click on "Read More...".
