Chameleon Laser Tuning Extended Further with New OPO

Chameleon Compact OPO-Vis is a new accessory for the Chameleon family of lasers for multiphoton imaging. It provides automated frequency doubling of the OPO and the Chameleon laser output to give unprecedented gap-free tuning from 340nm to 1600nm. Tuning is achieved via simple touchscreen controls with no manual adjustments required. Multiple outputs are provided for multi-wavelength experimental protocols, with independent tuning of the Chameleon, OPO and second harmonic outputs.

The OPO's long wavelength tuning capability provides access to a wavelength regime where reduced scattering enables deeper tissue imaging. It also allows excitation fo new long-wavelength fluorophores such as mCherry.

New! A1MP Multiphoton Confocal Microscope

Nikon's new A1MP is a streamlined version of the unique A1RMP multiphoton imaging system developed for simplified, cost-effective multiphoton imaging. The system features a high resolution galvanometer scanner and new 4 channel non-descanned detectors with higher sensitivity and reduced dark current. Also, Nikon's newly developed auto laser alignment function automatically corrects multiphoton laser misalugnments with a single click.

Nikon C1 Confocal, One System Left for Sale

Nikon has one only C1 confocal system available for sale, at a heavily reduced price. Nikon confocal systems are renowned for their flexibility and are excellent instruments for multi-user facilities. This is an excellent opportunity to expand your busy confocal microscopy laboratory. Contact your local salesperson (list below) for further details. The C1 was replaced by the C2 earlier this year.

Prior Z-deck Quick Adjust Platform System

With an impressive 50mm of vertical motion, Prior Scientific's patent pending ZDeck Quick Adjust Platform Sytem is an ideal platform for common fixed stage microscopes to simplify the adjustments between thin section samples and whole animal applications. The system incorporates a cusom ProScan series high precision motorised stage which provides submicron repeatability and smooth movement.

New! CUBE 647nm Laser

CUBE lasers are high-performance, full-feature diode laser systems. Each contains a laser head, power supply, cable and control box. The sytem is designed to be one of the easiest to set-up and use. The CUBE laser is now available with an output at 647nm and with 100mW of output power. Other wavelengths in the CUBE range include 375nm, 405nm, 445nm, 488nm, 635nm, 640nm, 660nm, 685nm, 730nm and 785nm.

SPEX 6870 Freezer/Mill for Trial, New Handbook

SPEX SamplePrep's family of Freezer/Mills are cryogenic laboratory mills which chill samples in liquid nitrogen and pulverise them with a magnetically driven impactor. The SPEX SamplePrep Freezer/Mills have been recognised as the world's most effective laboratory mill, the "mill of last resort" for many normally impossible to grind samples. We currently have a model 6870 Freezer/Mill available for trial in your laboratory. Please contact your local salesperson (list below) if you are interested.

Also the 2011 SPEX Handbook is now available. Contact us for a hard copy or download from our website.

Used Ion Lasers for Sale

The University of Western Australia is offering for sale a Coherent Innova 70C Spectrum. This is a mixed gas (krypton/argon) ion laser with 2.5W output over multiple lines. The laser has been fitted with a new plasma tube that has recorded only a few hundred hours of use and is offered with a suitable 3-phase transformer and heat exchanger. One or two Enterprise lasers are also offered. Please contact Paul Wardill for more information.
