 WPI Sale -15% Discount On All Products

The WPI End of Financial Year Sale is now on. 15% discount is available on all products until 30 June 2013. Recent additions to WPI's muscle physiology range include the new Biofluorometer for many life sciences applications, like ratiometric calcium detection, and the Cell Tester allowing a single, living cell or fibre to be studied without damaging it. Also the new Live Cell Imaging System where the unique design of the diffusion grid in the incubation chamber ensures consistent even heating. For further information contact Tim. He has hard copies of WPI's 2013 catalogue as well, or it can be viewed online.

The EvolveTM 512 Delta - Now Even Faster

Photometrics has pushed the boundaries of EMCCD camera technology again.

Now reaching 67.5 frames per second, the Evolve 512 Delta is the fastest and most optimised camera available today for Super Resolution applications. Doubling the rate of data acquisition, the total time to collect super resolution and confocal data sets is significantly reduced. Simply, you can acquire twice as much data in the same amount of time with the Evolve 512 Delta.

The camera also provides superior quantitative and detection performance, with accurate and precise triggering capability.

Muscle Tester Platforms from WPI

WPI offers several muscle tester platforms, including the:

  • SI-CTS200 –Cell Tester for experiments on single cells and small muscle tissues
  • SI-MT –Basic Muscle Tester for most muscle experiments
  • SI-MKB –Comprehensive Muscle Platform

These systems include a Signal Conditioning Amplifier System which is the electronic component of the system. It is configured for a researchers individual needs and comes with the modules a researcher chooses. The amplifier system can accommodate up to eight channels. Both the SI-MT and SI-MKB systems are modular in design allowing configuration for specific applications.

New Dedicated Website for Nikon BioStation CT

Nikon has launched an exciting new website that specifically focuses on STEM CELL research. The site places an emphasis on the BioStation-CT automated cell culture system and walks the user through details on the specialised long term time lapse system with advanced analysis software. The website includes application information (with videos), sample and vessel type information and environmental information. A user list is available and articles featuring the Biostation CT are shown.

ND2 Viewer

Nikon users unite! View your ND2 image files on two great new apps from the makers of NIS Elements.
ND2 Viewer makes use of native iOS controls and allows you to navigate, separate multi channel images,
see Z-Stack layers, play time lapse videos and more! ND2 Viewer is also fully integrated with DropBox so
you can access and share your Nikon images on the go.

Agile Light Source Enables High-speed Spectral Synthesis

The OL490 Agile Light Source from Optronic Laboratories allows researchers to generate single wavelengths or arbitrary spectra over the wavelength range 380nm – 780nm.

The instrument couples a high-power xenon light source with the Texas Instruments Digital Light Processor to allow spectra to be generated with high resolution and at high speed. Powerful software allows the user to generate spectra of arbitrary shape, to modulate the output and to program spectral scans at kilohertz rates. Output is via a 3mm liquid light guide which allows convenient coupling to a wide range of instruments.

Applications include microscopy, chemometrics, instrument calibration, forensics and hyperspectral imaging.
