One laser, multi-color nanoscopy 02 Nov 2021

Hubner Photonics

In this white paper we present a new technique that makes use of a single laser to excite multiple fluorophores in the same spectral range (red/far-red) coupled to a spectral demixing strategy that allows diffraction limits to be overcome thereby permitting 3D multi-color nanoscopy with increased simplicity, speed, and reliability of output data.

VPH Gratings: Flexibility in Design 28 Feb

Wasatch Photonics

Wasatch Photonics VPH gratings offer optical and instrument designers a tremendous amount of flexibility to optimize performance for a specific application. In this tech note, we’ll discuss the benefits of the various standard and patented grating design technologies at our disposal, and the general grating parameters we can control to meet your specific needs – for wavelengths spanning 300-2500 nm.

A Better Way to Focus: Linear Motor Focusing Stage Provides Superior Alternative to Piezo Actuators 22 Mar

Dover Motion

This white paper addresses high performance Z axis focusing for automated microscopy, along with some recent innovations in this space. Historically, piezo driven actuators have been used for these applications, but a Piezo actuator has very distinct limitations. Direct drive linear motor stages provide many advantages when compared to piezo nanopositioners. This whitepaper discusses both approaches to Z focusing motion.

Solving PCR Optical Filter Challenges for High Performance qPCR Instruments 17 Mar

Iridian Spectral Technologies

qPCR instrument-related challenges can be daunting; burdened by tough deadlines and fast rollouts, budgets that offer little wiggle room, and expectations for flawless functionality. A combination of Iridian’s wavelength selective excitation, emission, and dichroic filters serving each channel of a qPCR instrument provide high sensitivity to these systems while preserving the necessary signal-to-noise ratio delivering “More Signal, with Less Background”
