New Nikon FX Range
High speed/high sensitivity USB3.0 cameras – Upgrade today!

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.

New Linear Motor Stage from Prior

Prior’s newest stage technology, the HLD117 Linear Motor Stages bring a new level of speed and precision to microscope automation. With superior repeatability of 0.15μm, scanning speeds of up to 300mm per second and amazingly low velocity ripple even at speeds down to one micron per second, the HLD117 series of stages is the highest performing stage Prior has ever produced. The innovative low profile, flat top design and ultra quiet operation make the stage especially well suited for high end OEM and end user applications where performance matters most.

Electrophysiology and Calcium Imaging

Professor Nick Spencer and his team at the Department of Physiology, Flinders University are interested in how pain is detected from internal organs, such as the gastrointestinal tract. One of the challenges has been recording from nerve endings with electrophysiology, this approach did not allow them to record multiple sites simultaneously. However using the Photometrics Evolve 512 Delta EMCCD camera for calcium imaging has enabled them to  do this now. Download the paper to read more.
