High-resolution gel documentation system

04 June, 2008

Dolphin-Doc Plus is a high-performance gel documentation image system suitable for fluorescent DNA and protein gel visualisation.

Gel documentation and digital colour imaging system

07 November, 2007

The UVP PhotoDoc-It imaging system is suitable for basic documentation of gels and plates. The system is configured for limited laboratory space and budgets.

Gel documentation and chemi-imaging

09 May, 2007

The Alpha Innotech gel documentation and chemi-imaging systems include a complete range for white light, fluorescence and chemiluminescence applications.

Ultrasensitive optical sensor detects viruses fast

31 January, 2007

Scientists of the Biophysical Engineering Group of the University of Twente in The Netherlands have developed an ultrasensitive sensor that can be used in a handheld device to, within minutes, detect various viruses and measure their concentration.

lucaEM EMCCD camera

08 December, 2006

Andor's lucaEM is an electron multiplying CCD camera that is cost effective and powerful. Representing a new performance standard in 'workhorse' cameras lucaEM can operate 'gain off' for conventional CCD operation under brighter conditions. When the photons become scarce the EM gain can be turned on.

Imaging like insect eyes

09 October, 2006

By mimicking how insects see, a University of Adelaide researcher can now produce digital videos in which you can see every detail. The technique solves a critical problem for surveillance cameras, where the clarity of images is everything

Image processing and analysis

11 September, 2006

Image-Pro Plus version 6.0 offers an abundance of image processing and analysis capabilities to increase accuracy and automate research, development and quality processes. This major version release of Image-Pro Plus includes a number of new image analysis tools along with support for Windows XP x64 operating systems.

High-speed digital camera

09 August, 2006

Based on the SpeedCam MiniVis, the versions MiniVis ECO-1 and ECO-2 offer a maximum of flexibility in resolution and speed. The sophisticated systems convince users with a maximum resolution up to 1.280 x 1.024 pixels and recording speeds of up to 32.000 frames per second, with reduced resolution (ECO-2). The ECO series cameras are suitable for any R&D laboratory application that requires high-speed video.

EMCCD camera

09 August, 2006

The EMCCD camera from Andor, the iXonEM+ combines photon collection efficiencies of up to 95% QE with single photon sensitivity through virtual elimination of the read noise detection limit. The range offers multiple readout speeds up to 35 MHz, 14 and 16 bit digitisation and benefits from negligible dark current with thermoelectric cooling down to -100°C. Andor's vertical clock parameters ensure that clock induced charge (spurious noise) is low. Rapid vertical clocking ensures the frame rates are fast and smear is minimal.

Imaging system for gene therapy

07 June, 2006

The UVIchemi chemiluminescence imaging system can be used for imaging western blots which are an important method used to determine the effectiveness of gene transfer. In many cases, the images produced can be analysed (quantified) using UVIband analysis software also from UVItec.

Optical devices get fishy

23 February, 2006

Scientists in the US have used the DNA from fish waste to make optical components. The team, led by James Grote of the US Air Force Research Laboratory, says that the material could be used to make optical waveguides, modulators and light-emitting diodes. They also claim that fish DNA, which is abundant and environmentally friendly, could outperform other polymer-based devices.

Liver diagnostic technology

08 February, 2006

Resonance Health's non-invasive liver diagnostic technology uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology to provide a scan of the liver which is subsequently analysed to quantify iron loading using FerriScan's proprietary software. It is a novel technology easily applied to anyone with an MRI machine.

Life science CCD-based imaging systems

08 February, 2006

ImageQuant high performance imagers are available in four models, each designed to meet the varied needs of researchers in the life sciences.

Gadonanotubes boost MRI contrast

23 December, 2005

Researchers at Rice University, the Baylor College of Medicine, the University of Houston and the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in Switzerland have created what they claim is a new class of magnetic resonance imaging contrast agents that are at least 40 times more effective than the best in clinical use.

Microscope camera system

21 April, 2005

Jenoptik has released the ProgRes Star digital microscope camera system. It combines a three megapixel colour CCD with sophisticated 12 bit readout circuit technology.
