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.


Double beam spectrophotometer

12 January, 2007 | Supplied by: Scientifix Pty Ltd

The U2800 UV-Vis double beam spectrophotometer features a self-diagnostic function, 1.5 nm spectral bandwidth and LCD display with backlight.


lucaEM EMCCD camera

08 December, 2006 | Supplied by: SciTech Pty Ltd

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


Microscope reveals changes over time

09 October, 2006 by David Welsh

A three-dimensional microscope that works in a new way is giving unprecedented insight into the internal structure and chemical composition of materials


Image processing and analysis

11 September, 2006 | Supplied by: http://www.scitech.com.au

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.


Confocal microscopy

09 August, 2006 | Supplied by: http://www.leica-microsystems.com

Leica Microsystems has released a compact, high resolution spectral confocal system - the Leica TCS SPE - which features true spectral detection across the full emission range.


EMCCD camera

09 August, 2006 | Supplied by: http://www.scitech.com.au

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.


High-speed digital camera

09 August, 2006 | Supplied by: http://www.scitech.com.au

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.


Molecular DNA switch found to be the same for all life

18 July, 2006

The molecular machinery that starts the process by which a biological cell divides into two identical daughter cells apparently worked so well early on that evolution has conserved it across the eons in all forms of life on Earth.


Protein crystallisation facility

14 June, 2006

The Bio21 Collaborative Crystallisation Centre (Bio21-C3) is the first of its kind in Australia and will be opened by the Parliamentary Secretary for Innovation and Industry, Matt Viney, MP.
