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

Lake Shore’s Cryogenic Temperature Sensors now on elliotscientific.com

Lake Shore offers four types of sensor for cryogenic temperature measurement based on voltage (diodes) or resistance. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, and these can be easily seen at-a-glance via our new Cryogenic Temperature Sensors page.

For example: Of the three most common NTC resistor materials, sputter-deposited zirconium oxy-nitride aka Cernox™ – the others being Germanium and Ruthenium Oxide (Rox™) – is the most versatile. Cernox™ thin film resistors are only manufactured by Lake Shore Cryotronics, and incorporated into robust sensor packages.

Cernox™ works over a broad temperature range, does not follow a standard curve, has sensitivity below 1 K, and is highly resistant to ionising radiation and magnetic field-induced errors. These features can be instantly seen on the page via our colourful graphics:

In all, nine different temperature sensor materials are detailed and an informative datasheet is available to download. However, Elliot Scientific still recommends contacting us for expert advice on sensor choice for your application.

Light pinpoints stress and strain – A Brillouin’t idea from OZ Optics

Remote Pipeline, Perimeter, and Structural Monitoring…

dsts-applicationsForesight™, from OZ Optics, is a sophisticated Distributed Strain and Temperature Sensor (DSTS) based on Brillouin scattering in an optical fibre. It can measure subtle changes in both temperature and strain along the length of the fibre over time, or the rapid location detection of a major disturbance within a second.

By wrapping or embedding a fibre inside a structure, such as an oil pipeline or dam, detection of the structure being strained or heated/cooled is possible, allowing for pre-emptive maintenance. Such monitoring capability is invaluable in critical structures where cracks and failure could involve loss of life or other unprecedented costs.

Foresight™ can also detect and report larger signals within one second with only a slight loss of accuracy. This sort of response speed is ideal for security applications or strains caused by earthquakes where an immediate measurement and reaction may be required.

For more details about this system, please contact us.
