LED illuminators

The pE-200 and pE-300 LED light sources-in two- and three- wavelength configurations, respectively-are designed for clinical, tissue culture, and confocal imaging applications. The sources are available as a direct fit into existing imaging systems, and feature a control pod for independent intensity control and a >10,000 hr lifetime.

CoolLED, Andover, England,

Portable cytometer

The HPC-100 personal flow cytometer is available with one or two excitation lasers and a five-channel configuration. Based on the company's F3FiberFlowFluidics platform, the system enables testing of samples without sheath fluid, allowing continuous reuse. With a browser-based software interface, no software installation on the lab computer is required.

Rotary stages

MPS-GR rotary stages are available in 20 or 30 mm apertures for 360° measurement, alignment, and inspection of medical devices, including genome devices. Incorporating a worm-gear drive mechanism and bearing components, the stages are available with DC servo or stepper motors. Specifications include accuracy up to 80 arcsec, 1 arcsec resolution, 6 arcsec repeatability, and maximum speed of 180°/s.

Aerotech, Pittsburgh, PA,

Swept source

The s3 swept-wavelength laser provides triggering signals corresponding to the sweep signal and a calibration comb frequency at user-designated wavelengths. Employing the company's swept laser technology, the compact laser is designed for optical coherence technology (OCT), spectroscopy, and chromatic confocal microscopy. The laser provides high resolution and fast linear scan frequencies at optical spectral ranges with programmable calibration triggers.
