Super Resolution Workshops

Coherent Scientific and Nikon are hosting two super resolution workshops in Melbourne in November.

The first workshop will be dedicated to Nikon’s N-SIM technology and will be held over two days on Wednesday and Thursday 6 & 7 November. Dr Clement Khaw, N-SIM product specialist from Nikon Singapore, will be on-hand to run samples and advise on N-SIM applications.

The second workshop will be dedicated to Nikon’s N-STORM technology and will be held over two days on Thursday and Friday 14 & 15 November. Dr Kenji Takasuka, N-STORM application specialist from Nikon Japan , will be on-hand to run samples and advise on N-STORM applications.

The workshops will take the format of lectures and hands-on demonstration. This is a great opportunity to review super resolution techniques, run samples and understand which super resolution technology best fits your applications areas.

For more details or to register, please contact Andrew Masters or Dr. Betty Kouskousis.

Bruker BioScope Catalyst
Optical, Structural and Mechanical Correlative Microscopy

With the most complete integration of AFM and light microscopy, the Bruker BioScope Catalyst enables imaging from whole living cells to single molecules.

Uncompromised imaging performance matched with Bruker ScanAsyst imaging optimisation, patented PeakForce Tapping, MIRO (Microscope Image Registration and Overlay) software and innovative hardware make the Bruker BioScope Catalyst, much more than just a high performance AFM, but the easiest to use and most productive AFM dedicated to life science applications available today.

Correlate optical response, mechanical information and structural information at unprecedented resolution at picoNewton imaging forces to successfully image even the most challenging samples. Download the application note or read more on our website.

Solid-state, White Light Source

Lumencor offers a bright, mercury-free, solid state lamp as an alternative to the traditional mercury-containing arc lamps: the SOLA light engine. SOLA is the only continuous spectrum, white light, solid-sate product commercially available. Both SOLA light engine models produce continuous white light from 380nm to 680nm. They are suitable for imaging all the most common fluorophores and fluorescent proteins. The SOLA SE model may be controlled by every microscopy software in the market place. The SOLA SM II model is designed to operate via simple manual on/off control or with the aid of a foot pedal. While SOLA is very simple to operate, be assured it is also very powerful. Expect several watts of visible light pumped through the light guide, giving ample intensity for even the most demanding microscope applications.
