Specialised Imaging has announced a technological innovation for its SIR2 camera that enables researchers to accurately record and analyse projectiles with unpredictable velocities. Traditionally recording images of high-speed projectiles with unpredictable velocity has been very unreliable. Using the input from two separate sensors, a measured distance apart, fed into the two inputs of the SIR2 camera - the new proprietary SureShot real-time hardware is able to capture unpredictable high-speed projectiles mid frame - first time, every time.

BioPhase is an imaging device from PhaseView with capability of simultaneous acquisition of intensity and phase data at ultra high resolution, providing qualitative cell imaging and accurate quantitative measurements including key benefits.
Time lapse monitoring of 3D cell morphology can be performed without contrast agents with related photo toxicity and without specialized optics for free space manipulation. Cells can remain in situ in their growth medium using standard incubation flasks, Petri dishes or multi well plates. moreNov. 03, 2009
Prior Scientific has announced a further enhancement to the award winning PL-200 Automatic Slide Loader. The system can now handle 3"x2" (75mm x 50mm) slides to facilitate high throughput applications involving larger specimens such as brain slices. The PL-200 is the most flexible automatic slide handling system commercially available. Not only can the system accommodate 200 standard slides but can now be adapted for 100 of the larger 3"x2" slides. This provides greatly improved productivity as slide scanning can now be performed overnight and unattended. moreNov. 03, 2009
Ted Pella, announced the distribution for the YPS (York Probe Sources) Schottky Field Emission Sources. The YPS Schottky or thermal field emission (TFE) sources can be used in many brands of focused electron beam systems including SEM, TEM, Auger and CD-SEM systems. moreNov. 03, 2009

Nikon has announced the availability of a new light microscopy contrast method - NAMC (Nikon Advanced Modulation Contrast). Offering enhanced image sharpness and definition, NAMC can be used in all applications that traditionally use Hoffman Modulation Contrast and is particularly important in live cell applications, such as IVF, for the observation of specimens in plastic dishes. NAMC is currently available for Nikon's Ti series inverted microscopes. moreNov. 03, 2009
Leica Microsystems has released the first single molecule detection system which offers an integrated platform for the most common single molecule techniques, such as FLIM and FCS. The new TCS SMD Series also provides the ability to perform the newer and more precize verification methods for molecule concentrations and interactions, FCCS (fluorescence cross-correlation spectroscopy) and FLCS (fluorescence lifetime correlation spectroscopy). moreNov. 03, 2009
NanoFocus and Digital Surf announced that the non-contact µscan explorer from NanoFocus integrates optical distance sensors, data acquisition and control systems, and surface analysis software based upon proven Digital Surf technologies. The profilometer, which was unveiled at the Medtec Europe exhibition in Stuttgart in 2009, is designed for use in both laboratory and production environments. more
