The Dimension FastScan Bio AFM from Bruker Nano Surfaces Division delivers fast scanning rates without loss of resolution or force control.
The system delivers the scanning speed required for high-resolution spatiotemporal studies. The fast scanning allows temporal investigation under physiological operating environments in fluid while exceeding the diffraction limits of optical microscopy. moreOct. 15, 2012
The Lightsheet Z.1 Light Sheet Microscope System from Carl Zeiss provides biologists with a new method of imaging dynamic processes in living organisms. The development of entire organisms over several day or more can be observed.
The extremely low phototoxicity and the integrated incubation enable insights into the differentiation of cell groups without harming the specimen. On large objects, in particular, such as fruit fly or zebrafish embryos, the light sheet microscope delivers more information than established methods of fluorescence microscopy.

The GP-KH232E camera from Panasonic is ultra-compact, yet does not compromise on picture quality in terms of resolution, sensitivity and color reproduction. It has a single chip CMOS approach for high image quality and new Digital Signal Processing resulting in a very small digital HD camera head with standard C-Mount type lens interface.
The video formats 1080p (through HDMI), 1080i, 720P, 576P/480P and 576i/480i are supported. The camera achieves horizontal resolution of 900 TVLines with a required illumination of 2000Ix at F5.6.

Orion NanoFab from Carl Zeiss Microscopy is the first multi-ion-beam tool based on Gas Field Ion Source technology.
Beside the helium ion beam, the system also utilizes neon ions and is therefore capable of providing a complete sub-10 nanometer nanofabrication and sub-nanometer imaging solution for industry, government, and academic research laboratories.

HydraHarp 400 from PicoQuant is the first Time-Correlated Single Photon Counting system (TCSPC) with USB 3.0 PC-interface.
It has a modular design and can be fitted with two, four, six or eight identical input channels and a common sync channel. The large number of input channels qualifies the instrument for most advanced high throughput applications where data rates can be very high. moreOct. 09, 2012
Cobolt has recently introduced four new high power laser models on the 05-01 platform for high power single-frequency DPSS lasers.
The Cobolt Zouk 355 nm is now available with an output power up to 20mW, the Cobolt Samba 532 nm up to 1.5W, the Cobolt Flamenco 660 nm up to 0.5W and the Cobolt Rumba at 1064nm up to 3W. more
