Tomorrow, the Photonex Roadshow returns to Scotland

The Photonex Roadshow returns to Glasgow tomorrow, bringing together the UK’s top photonics technology suppliers, leading researchers and invited speakers for a very special one-day event on June 14th at the University of Strathclyde.

Elliot Scientific will be among the dozens of companies dedicated to optics, biophotonics and imaging technology – allowing you to view the latest photonics solutions, optical components, instruments and systems, as well as a conference and tutorials.

Photonics is an enabling technology, so you can only really find out how a company can help you in your work by face-to-face contact. Elliot Scientific’s Solution Science is more than just a slogan, it’s our approach to providing the tools and equipment you need to get the results you want.

We will be demonstrating our ranges of precision slides and flexure stages, the ultra-bright laser-driven plasma light source from Energetiq, nanopositioners from Mad City Labs, and much more. Come and talk to us about your project.

Bright products for Microscopy, Spectroscopy and Optogenetics

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAElliot Scientific distribute a comprehensive range of high powered LED light delivery products for microscopy, spectroscopy, optogenetics, and other scientific research and industrial applications. Manufactured by Prizmatix, a scientist-led company that specialises in the design and manufacturing of ultra high-power LEDs, a range of power levels and wavelengths across the spectrum are available for applications that include…

  • For microscopy and imaging: the powerful UHP-T LED series
  • For optogenetics: single and dual wavelength systems for in-vivo and in-vitro research
  • For custom setups:
    • offering modularity and versatility
    • fibre-coupled units with up to 11 different LEDs

STSI-All-250-1For in-vivo and in-vitro optogenetics, Prizmatix offer a full range of modules that start from single wavelength plug-and-go kits, to multi-wavelength systems for activation and silencing in the same fibre. From light sources to cannulae, and everything in between, Prizmatix provides all the components necessary for experimenters in neuroscience, neurobiology, electrophysiology, biochemistry and biophysics. Typical systems have been constructed by researchers for:

  • Detection & excitation
  • Intensity monitoring
  • In-line filtering, attenuation or polarisation
  • Reflectance or fluorescence detection for in situ, in-vivo, or in-vitro applications

Prizmatix have extensively developed various photonics products for use in neuro and bioscience research such as optogenetics, as well as traditional chemistry, biology and physics. For example, fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy, microscopy, and absorption measurement are typical applications here. Elliot Scientific are always happy to advise, so contact us today for further information.


UHP-T-MP: Excellent for Optogenetics/fluorescence excitation in microplate applications

batch5-057The UHP-T-MP series of Ultra High Power LEDs, by Prizmatix, feature a powerful rectangular (3:4) homogeneous collimated beam useful in many demanding applications such as direct microplate illumination without a light guide, fluorescence microscopy and machine vision.

Optimal illumination of standard 96 well microplates from a working distance of about 40 cm is realised by its aspheric optics, and the USB-equipped LED controller supports CW or pulsed operation via a TTL trigger. LED intensity can be set via a pot or external analogue voltage input.

The UHP-T-MP is available in blue – 455 nm, green – 528 nm or red – 630 nm wavelengths, and can be used coupled to an optical fibre or liquid light guide, or just as a collimated light source.

Key features

  • Single chip Ultra High Brightness LED
  • Precisely adjustable, stable power
  • 3:4 aspect ratio
  • CW or pulsed operation
  • USB interface
  • Long life (no consumable parts)

Institute of Photonics: Elliot Scientific at 20th Anniversary next week

To mark their 20th anniversary and the International Year of Light, the Institute of Photonics will be holding a special celebration. On Wednesday, November 4th., world-leading experts will be presenting on a wide range of photonics research topics including: diamond photonics, visible light communications, gallium nitride based lighting, colloidal quantum dot devices and optogenetics.

Alongside the conference, a small exhibition of key suppliers to academia and industry will include Elliot Scientific. We will on hand to offer advice and demonstrate a select range of products and equipment that delivers our solution science to researchers.

If you are in Glasgow next week, do visit the University of Strathclyde for the Institute of Photonics 20th Anniversary and drop by the Elliot Scientific display. We look forward to meeting you.
