DRS Daylight Solutions Webinar

Wednesday 30 October
        Auckland (NZDT) : 12am
        Brisbane (AEST) : 3am
        Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Hobart (AEDT) : 4am
        Adelaide (ACDT) : 3:30am
        Perth (AWST) : 1am

Learn how to reliably quantitate multiple analytes simultaneously with one easy, non-destructive step. A new class of laser-based Mid-IR liquid analysers are enabling real-time, simultaneous quantification of key bioprocess constituents such as glucose, lactate, glutamine, glutamate and ammonia at low concentration within a complex background medium. The Mid-IR technique provides a higher degree of chemical selectivity over UV-Vis and near-IR techniques and can provide robust quantitation compared to raman based approaches.

New Ultrafast Laser for Multiphoton Imaging

The unique performance of the new Chameleon Discovery NX laser delivers deep multiphoton microscope images with superb brightness and high contrast, making it especially well-suited for live tissue imaging in neuroscience and other intravital applications.

The Chameleon Discovery NX offers high power levels (up to 3W), and shortest pulses at the sample plane to enable complex two photon microscope configurations. Short pulse duration is key to high brightness/contrast images and is enabled by a group dispersion delay (GDD) pre-compensator with enhanced dynamic range. It avoids unwanted pulse stretching, even in wide field microscope setups using highly refractive objectives, allowing users to minimise unwanted sample heating and maximise image depth.

Chameleon Discovery NX is tunable from 660nm to 1320nm, while simultaneously producing a high-power fixed wavelength output at 1040nm. It is also available with Total Power Control (TPC), enabling built-in high-speed power modulation. Incorporating the latest acousto-optic (AO) technology, this functionality provides high-contrast modulation on both the tunable femotsecond output and the 1040nm output. TPC ensures that the laser's excellent beam quality is delivered directly to the microscope scan head.

Bruker Launches Large-Format Bio-AFM System

The new NanoWizard® 4 XP High Resolution, Large-Format Bio-AFM integrates Bruker's exclusive PeakForce Tapping, which enables both superior force control and unparalleld AFM ease of use, and industry-leading QI mode for high-resolution nanomechanics on soft samples.

Building on JPK's pioneering role in combining AFM with advanced optical techniques, the NanoWizard 4 XP system provides highest level correlative microscopy and seamless integration with phase, DIC, confocal or spinning disc microscopies, single-molecule methods (FRET, FCS, TIRF, FLIM, FRAP), super-resolution tecnhniques (STED, PALM/STORM, SIM), Raman and multiphoton microscopy.

In addition to PeakForce Tapping and QI mode, the NanoWizard 4 XP comes with JPK’s next-generation Vortis 2 high-speed, high-performance control electronics. Vortis 2 delivers the lowest noise levels and highest signal processing speeds, and it is designed to meet the needs of all operator experience levels. A revolutionary new workflow-based software GUI includes guidance, auto-setup, and workspace organization to deliver results quickly and to enhance productivity. As an option, NestedScanner™ technology enables an AFM scanning speed of 150 lines per second, unprecedented for a large-scanner system, while maintaining access to any location within all three axes. Researchers have full access to follow dynamics wherever the sample takes them, offering a true synergy with simultaneous optical microscopy. Equipped with the widest range of accessories, the NanoWizard 4 XP is the most versatile Bio-AFM system on the market, providing exceptional flexibility for novel applications and experiments.
