Introducing the Nikon SoRa High Speed SR SD Confocal Microscope

Nikon has released their new SoRa high speed super-resoution microscope.

Based on a Yokogawa CSU-W1 spinning disc confocal platform the SoRa achieves 120nm lateral resolution through optical pixel realignment.

When combined with Nikon's award winning Eclipse Ti2-E inverted microscope and NIS-Elements software the system provides a high-speed, super-resolution microscope with powerful image automation and acquisition via Nikon JOB's and HCA functionality for super-resolution live-cell imaging.

The system includes two spinning discs which can be exchanged easily via software control - a super reolution disc which also includes the capability of optical sectioning, and a standard confocal imaging disc.

Webinar : Unravelling Dynamic Processes with the New JPK NanoWizard ULTRA Speed 2 BioAFM

Wednesday 4 June 2019

New Zealand (NZST) : 7pm
Brisbane/Sydney/Canberra/Melbourne/Hobart (AEST) : 5pm
Perth (AWST) : 5pm


AFM has become an indispensable tool for the structural and mechanical analysis of samples ranging from single molecules to complex biological systems in life science and biophysics labs worldwide. It provides outstanding lateral and spatial resolution and does not require specific sample preparation or modification. It is currently being used in simultaneous, correlative studies with advanced optical and super-resolution techniques.

The JPK NanoWizard ULTRA Speed 2 meets the rising demand for novel developments and applications which enable the study of dynamic processes and kinetics in macromolecular systems with high temporal resolution. With line rates of 600 Hz and video rate imaging of up to 10 frames per second, it provides outstanding performance.

We will focus on the following applications:

  • Accessing challenging biological samples, e.g. highly corrugated specimen
  • The dissolution of calcite crystal plane terraces
  • Thermodynamic de-/rehybridization of double-helical DNA
  • Melting/crystallization of polyester polycaprolactone (PCL) films, and
  • Fibroblast cells measured in liquid

Speaker : Dr Dimitar Stamov, Senior Applications Scientist at JPK BioAFM, Bruker Nano GmbH, has extensive experience in BioAFM technology and correlative techniques for the Life Sciences

WPI 6-axis Motorised Stereotaxic Frame

New from WPI the MTM-6 is a 6-axis motorised stereotaxic frame which includes both manipulator arms and dual controllers, allowing you to mount, for example, a stereotaxic drill and probe simultaneously.

The motorised stereotaxic frame with a digital display outperforms manual versions, and greatly reduces human error when performing routine stereotaxic surgery. The motorised axes of the MTM-6 provide precise, controlled, 3-dimensional placement of any probe or accessory within the working space of the stereotaxic frame.

Webinar : BioAFM and Their Applications in Cell Studies

Wednesday 8 May 2019
Australia AEST : 3:30pm
Singapore : 1:30pm
India: 11:00am

In current cell studies, researchers are no longer satisfied with just some nice images. Beyond the topography, efforts have been devoted to unveiling the details in functional and mechanical aspects. Atomic force microscopy offers a straightforward solution for such requirements. Its high resolution under physiological conditions makes it possible to develop the understanding of the cells and their environment. The mechanical information obtained simultaneously along the topograpy in AFM images has been widely applied to bridge the gap between the structure and the mechanical properties. Thanks to the development of high-speed AFM, fine details involved in dynamic processes happening at the cell surface can be well resolve in real time. The combination of AFM and optical tecniques unleashes even greater possibility for cell microscopy.

As part of the Bruker Bio-AFM series, this webinar will be focused on sharing the new developments in Bio-AFM and their applications in cell studies.
