Oxford Instruments Andor Launches Two New Benchtop Microscopes

Oxford Instruments Andor, a world leader in scientific imaging solutions, today announced the launch of two new benchtop microscopes.

 

Following the successful introduction of the BC43 CF benchtop confocal microscope in 2021, Andor now offers benchtop fluorescence and super resolution models, all have been designed with cost, performance, and accessibility in mind.

 

The BC43 range will bring instant clarity and depth to research studies, whatever the sample, in ways previously only found in larger, more complex, and more expensive systems. The aim of the portfolio expansion is to make fluorescence, confocal, and super resolution microscopy accessible to a much wider user base across different research areas and experience levels.

 

The new BC43 WF is a compact, easy-to-use, and affordable widefield microscope, ideal for automated imaging and smaller budgets. This entry-level system enables hassle-free, high-quality fluorescence imaging, and its in-field upgradability allows researchers to extend into confocal and super-resolution microscopy as requirements or budgets increase.

 

Completing the portfolio is BC43 SR, a microscope that delivers super resolution data quicker and easier than ever before, resolving samples down to 140 nm.

 

Crucially, optical performance is backed up by Andor’s new IQ / OQ quality control programme, which ensures that all BC43 microscopes operate within tightly controlled parameters, and provides confidence that data and experiments are reproducible in the future. This has been developed in collaboration with QUAREP-LiMi, an initiative with over 600 members from academia and industry, which is aiming to improve the reproducibility of light microscopy experiments.

 

More modalities. More performance. More Certainty.

New Black Wall Fluorodish Cell Culture Dishes

AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER

 

The new black wall FluoroDish Cell Culture Dishes from WPI reduce reflections by providing a barrier for the ambient light, giving you clearer fluorescent images.

 

They are an excellent option for fluorescence live cell imaging by reducing the ambient light.

 

As with other FluoroDish in the range from WPI, the optical quality glass bottom is as thin as the coverslip to ensure the least amount of distortions, and excellent UV transmission. Each pack is individually packaged and gamma sterilised.

Webinar : High Speed AFM Fundamentals and Integration with Advanced Optical Techniques

Date: Friday 22 March 2024
Time: 5am NZDT, 3am AEST, 12am Midnight AWST
 


 

Join us and our special guest speaker Dr. George Heath, University of Leeds, UK, for this virtual workshop on high-speed atomic force microscopy (AFM). The webinar will focus on the fundamental principles of the technique, relevant applications, and its integration with advanced optical microscopy.
 

Dr. Heath will speak about his work using the NanoRacer high-speed atomic force microscope to study protein dynamics and will present methods that can increase the temporal and spatial resolution of AFM to the 10 microsecond and sub-nm level. The webinar will provide an overview of the latest developments in high-speed AFM and will include a demonstration on the NanoWizard ULTRA Speed 3 BioAFM, live from our laboratories in Berlin, Germany.
