New 2013 WPI Catalogue
The new 2013 WPI catalog has arrived, and it is packed full of some exciting new products. From new surgical instruments and some trendy new binocular loupes to a live cell imaging system, you will find it all described in the catalogue.
The muscle physiology line has added the Biofluorometer for fluorescence spectroscopy. It is a highly flexible LED-based fluorometer for many life science applications, like ratiometric calcium detection using FURA-2 and ATPase detection. The Optical Sarcomere Spacing system is also brand new. It is available for use with the Cell tester. Take a look at the Horizontal Tissue Baths, too. All the SI-H products are made in the USA.
The Live Cell Imaging incubation chamber has a unique diffusion grid with input and return vents to provide an air flow pattern for consistent even heating. STEV is the stagetop environment chamber for short or long term studies of live cells. It allows you to control both temperature and carbon dioxide levels in the chamber.
Many other products, including a benchtop autoclave, a new microfluidics offering, the Nanoliter 2010 injection pump, new digital stereotaxic frames and student microscopes, can be found in this year's catalogue.

Microscope enhancement for Fluorescent Spectrometers
Edinburgh Instruments, Photonics Division, announces the addition of a combined microscope and imaging camera to Edinburgh Photonics FLS980 and FLS920 range of photoluminescence spectrometers further enhance the capabilities of these powerful instruments. The microscope-camera combination allows measurement of specific points within a sample and for imaging with monochromatic excitation/illumination.
Either upright or inverted microscopes can be coupled to the spectrometers via optical fibres. Imaging is possible with widefield excitation or in spot mode with approximately 1µm spatial resolution. Cameras are available for both visible and for NIR regions up to 700nm, and all microscopes and cameras can be retrofitted to the spectrometers.
The FLS980 and FLS920 are high performance spectrometers using single photon counting techniques for steady state and lifetime measurements in fluorescent and phosphorescence.
The spectrometer software provides full control of the microscope, including automated microscope
stage scanning and data acqusitions for imaging.
A choice of configurations provides measurement versatility.
New Semrock 2013 Master Catalogue
Semrock, Inc. has announced the release of the 2013 Master Catalognew 116-page, full-color, catalog of optical filters and related products, contains new Technical and Product Notes along with a large selection of new products recently introduced. With this release Semrock has introduced over 30 new thin-film filters for fluorescence microscopy and measurements, Raman spectroscopy, and other laser analytical instrumentation applications.
Among the standouts of this print edition is the expansion of the EdgeBasic™ product family. These long-pass edge filters are designed to provide deep blocking at the laser wavelength at a value price, and now cover 23 laser wavelengths. Coming in Q2 is the Semrock Fresco™ tunable filter system, which utilises VersaChrome technology to provide continuous spectral tunability over the visible range.
The PulseLine™ product family is specifically designed for femtosecond pulsed laser applications, and Semrock now offer a line of low-dispersion beamsplitters with four different splitting ratios and for either s- or p-polarized light. These beamsplitters, similar to the high reflectivity mirrors previously released, operate over the tuning range of a Ti:S ultrafast laser (650 – 1100nm).
Exceptional Semrock services highlighted in the catalog include our same-day shipping policy, 2-day custom-sizing, and a 30-day no-hassle return policy. All Semrock filters are covered under the company’s five-year warranty.
New Surgical Instruments Catalogue from WPI
The new Surgical Instruments catalogue is now available from WPI. A variety of new products are available. The new Delrin tips (p24) are antistatic, antimagnetic, waterproof and heat resistant. A line of Swiss made Regine tweezers has been added (p36), constructed using the latest technology and skilled workmanship the precision of these tweezers is unparalleled. A new line of microsurgical knives offers six different cutting edges in a variety of sizes (p48). There are now also four new student surgical kits for anatomy, botony, entomology and dissection (p63). For electrosurgery, the new PI-MC2010 Micro Cautery unit comes with 13mm and 18mm diameter wire cautery tips with 1.0 and 1.5mm loops (p69). A variety of Guardian Barrier Containers (P75), which can be used for cleaning, rinsing, drying and sterilisation, are also new to the line. Look for the new ultrasonic cleaning systems (p76), microsteriliser (p77) and tabletop autoclave (p78). Several headlamps (p98), including some that clip on your binocular loupes were also added to the line. Click on the cover below to download the new catalogue, 6Mb.
