Peering through a homemade instrument-toy-like by today's standards-the Dutch tradesman Antony van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723) first observed a dizzying menagerie of lifeforms, invisible to the naked eye. Since then, scientists have steadily refined the field of microscopy, achieving spectacular results at ever-tinier scales.

The Agilent Monolithic Laser Combiner MLC 400, distributed by Laser 2000 Europe, is a perfect solution for confocal, super resolution and fluorescence microscopy. Long-life DPSS and diode lasers are efficiently combined in a single output fiber, which is coupled to the microscope. With the integrated AOTF fast switching between the wavelengths and fast regulation of the output power is possible.
The unique design includes permanent factory alignment. No more losing time with adjusting lasers instead of taking microscope images.

Andor Technology has launched TuCam, a high performance, two-camera adapter for macro or microscopic imaging applications.
TuCam can be configured for simultaneous imaging from two similar cameras or as a switch between camera models with different imaging capabilities. The solution is particularly suited for the detection of two different fluorophores in experiments such as co-localization FRET or ratiometric ion signalling.

QImaging announces the release of the Rolera EM-C2 EMCCD microscopy camera. Engineered for high-sensitivity and high-speed performance in low-light imaging applications, the Rolera EM-C2 camera aids researchers in applications such as spinning-disc confocal imaging, Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy, ratiometric ion imaging and Fluorescence Recovery After Photobleaching (FRAP).
Fast frame rates essential to cutting-edge live cell imaging studies are enabled by the camera's 40 MHz pixel clock rate.
