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.
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.
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
A three-dimensional microscope that works in a new way is giving unprecedented insight into the internal structure and chemical composition of materials
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.
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.
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 -100Â°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.
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.
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.
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.
Not that rigorous? Anathema though this thought may be to most pharmaceutical quality managers, it is nonetheless quite apparent to companies such as ours, which make products critical to maintaining quality in pharmaceutical and other applications
