CRAIC’s Technologies MP-2™ Photometer can upgrade your microscope

The CRAIC Technologies MP-2™ Microscope Photometer is designed to add photometry and imaging to an optical microscope. With a spectral range from the deep UV to the near infrared, the MP-2™ is better described as a microscope radiometer. It is limited only by the microscope’s optics.

The CRAIC MP-2™ microphotometer enables collection of transmission, reflectance or even fluorescence and luminescence photometric data of microscopic samples.

mp-1The MP-2’s solid state detectors have dynamic ranges and sensitivities greater than PMTs or imaging systems and with complete software control, either broad- or narrow-band, photometric intensity measurements can be made. Typical applications include:

  • Cytophotometry & immunohistochemistry
  • Cytofluorimetry & immunofluorescence
  • Intracellular calcium measurements
  • Gemology & mineralogy
  • Thickness measurements
  • Ion & pH measurements
  • DNA analysis
  • Photoreceptor analysis

New modular test system for networks from EXFO

EXFO has released their next-generation modular test system in the form of the LTB-8 Rackmount Platform (with video), a versatile solution that addresses the many testing requirements found within today’s data networks.

The LTB-8’s small format, ultra-powerful processor and highly intuitive interface gives the lab user an optimised instrument to run dedicated test applications simply and efficiently for technologies such as Ethernet, OTN, Fibre Channel, SONET/SDH and more.

  • In-rack or tabletop
  • 8 hot-swappable modules
  • RAID data storage
  • USB, LAN, Sync and AMT ports
  • High performance on-board computer
  • Multi-user and remote access capability

An upgrade path for existing users of the IQS-600 modular test platform, enabling migration from the old to the new, has been mapped out by EXFO so please contact us for details and trade-in offers.

Lake Shore at MRS Fall next week – Booth 800

Materials characterisation using the Vibrating Sample Magnetometer

Materials characterisation using the Vibrating Sample MagnetometerLake Shore Cryotronics are exhibiting at the Materials Research Society (MRS) Fall Meeting from November 26th to 30th at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston.

They will be highlighting their wide range of sensors, instruments, and systems used for high-precision materials characterisation research, including their line of cryogenic and cryogen-free probe stations, the new 8404 Hall effect measurement system and Model 336 cryogenic temperature controller.

Lake Shore experts will be on-hand in Booth 800 to discuss recent research developments, talk through any applications issues that scientists are encountering, and help suggest solutions to these issues.
