New Nikon FX-CMOS Range
High speed/high sensitivity USB3.0 cameras - Demonstrations available!

CCD technology has long been the staple of scientific imaging. The gap in quality between CCD and CMOS is gradually closing and has reached a tipping point where Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) cameras are achieving exceptional standards with huge advantages in speed and large fields of view. The introduction of Nikon's new FX-CMOS cameras expands on this progress again by offering affordable bright field and monochrome models with fast live frame rates, more than 5 times the sensitivity of their CCD predecessors and a field of view that is 3-4 times larger than a typical CCD camera. The FX range utilises USB 3.0 connectivity for fast data transfer and future proofing against ageing FireWire/USB 2.0 technology.

To celebrate the release of Nikon's FX range cameras we are offering a trade in promotion on any microscope CCD camera when upgrading to a new Nikon FX colour or monochrome system.

Demonstration models are available now, please contact us to organise a demo in your lab or download the brochure to learn more.

Vibration Control Products on Sale

Starting today, and closing Friday 19 December 2014, you can get large savings on TMC's range of optical tables, laboratory tables and bench top isolation platforms.

Damping external sources of vibration is vitally important in many high resolution microscopy applications to improve both measurement resolution and experimental stability. TMC's 63-500 Series Laboratory Tables and the TableTop 64-series and 66-series provide excellent damping to building and room vibrations that are problematic for high resolution imaging.

Used to control vibration from general high resolution microscopy to Confocal and Super Resolution microscopy instruments, you can be assured the best performance, now at an exceptional price point. Contact us for a quotation today.
