High-sensitivity laser scanning microscope

Click to Enlarge

The LSM 780 laser scanning microscope uses new GaAsP detector technology to nearly double imaging sensitivity, compared with previously state-of-the-art systems. It aims to facilitate quick visualization of weakly fluorescent and bleach-sensitive specimens, and perform high-quality imaging of tissues with fine structures. It enables high-speed scanning and provides intelligent enhancement of image dynamics.

Multi-axis stages for super-resolution microscopy

Click to Enlarge

The PI nano1x3 series XY and XYZ nanopositioning stages, designed for inverted microscopes from Leica, Nikon, Olympus, and Zeiss, promise highly accurate motion with sub-nanometer resolution over travel ranges of 200 µm. The low profile (20 mm) design facilitates integration, and a large aperture accommodates such accessories as slide and Petri dish holders.

Comprehensive gene analysis sets

Click to Enlarge

Solaris qPCR Gene Expression Assays are gene specific pre-designed probe and primer sets for real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). The assays are pre-designed using an advanced algorithm and incorporate Minor Groove Binder (MGB) and Superbase technologies for performance and universal cycling. And, they are optimized to assure coverage of all known splice variants of the target gene.

Single-molecule force spectroscopy system

Click to Enlarge

Real-time single-molecule force spectroscopy used to be complicated. But ForceRobot 300's intelligent software automates setup and provides continuous adjustment for efficiency. Integrated optical techniques enable targeted, direct measurement of forces between and within molecules, providing sensitivity sufficient to characterize molecular interactions such as the unfolding of single proteins. It works in stand-alone mode or can be mounted on an inverted optical microscope to enable simultaneous fluorescence microscopy.

Multi-user spectrophotometer

The Epoch multi-volume spectrophotometer system is designed for monochromator-based absorbance measurements in volumes as low as 2 µL. Together, the microplate spectrophotometer and the software-controlled multi-volume plate target labs with multiple users and multiple assays. With its wavelength range of 200 nm to 999 nm, it provides optimal performance for applications such as nucleic acid and protein quantification.
