Nanopositioning Piezo Sample Scanner
Delivering the best positioning performance and fastest recovery between Z stacks, the NanoScan-SP range of Piezo driven stages are compatible with many Prior motorised stages as well as many common microscopes when using appropriate adapter plates.
The super slim height; 13.7mm, is a feature of the 400um and 600um closed loop versions giving better access for illumination of the sample area. Accessory insert plates are available for a wide variety of samples, including well plates, Microtitre plates, slides and petri dishes.Read More
UV Ring Light
The new SCHOTT® VisiLED UV Ring Light for stereo microscopes combines classic bright-field illumination with UV illumination. It is the only segment ring light on the market in which white-light and UV-LEDs are alternately installed in eight segments. This LED arrangement allows objects to be examined from the same illumination angle, which significantly improves the ability to compare and reproduce resulting images. While the homogenous white light displays samples in natural color, UV excitation reveals previously invisible parts of the sample through fluorescence. The SCHOTT MC 1100 Controller makes it easy to switch between the two illumination modes.
CardioPhys ECG Monitoring System
The CardioPhysTM ECG system is a highly versatile tool for measuring ECG of a wide variety of animals - as small as a zebrafish embryo to animals as large as an alligator.
The CardioPhysTM ECG is a bioamplifier that is designed to amplify the sum of electrical potentials from cardiac muscle, and other extacellular signals. The signal produced from cardiac recordings tracks the depolariation and repolarisation of the cardiomyocytes as they contract in succession to pump blood through the heard. The amplifier is powered by two 9V batteries to minimise electrical noise, which could interfere with or mask the voltage signal from the heart.Read More
Complete Microscopy Training Course
Thursday 10 September 1am AEST - Lesson 1 The History of Microscopy
At the Andor Microscopy School, the aim is to give life science researchers an overview of the microscopy world, from the fundamental applications to mroe recent high-end techniques. They will start with an introduction to microscopy, its history and simultaneously introduce concepts of optics that are important to understand how microscopes work.
- Gain an overview of the history of microscopy
- Recognise differences between simple and compound microscope
- Understand basic concepts in optics and light that are key in microscopy
