Serving unmet needs with OCT


What Steve Jobs referred to as “the unmet need” is a barrier to effective treatment, scientific discovery—and equipment sales. Traditionally, developers (engineers) strive for precision, elegance, and maximum theoretical performance (e.g. resolution), whereas the end user (physician or researcher) often has very different requirements. Unfortunately, efforts to bridge this gap can easily become confused.

Maximizing fluorescence performance with LED light engine filters


LED light engines provide great convenience and capability for fluorescence microscopy. But their full performance potential is rarely realized. The good news is that you can fix this problem in your own lab.

Often, LED light engines are being used with conventional filter sets designed for mercury or xenon arc lamps. Because legacy sources differ significantly from LED sources in terms of spectral signature and energy distribution, conventional filter sets may provide suboptimal performance. In this webcast, Prashant Prabhat, Ph.D. , a veteran applications scientist, will discuss an easy means of optimizing imaging system performance using thin-film interference filters. He will explain how a fluorescence analysis software tool can provide accurate, quantitative spectral evaluation of fluorescence measurement systems in an easy-to-use web-based environment. And, he will answer your questions about filters for fluorescence imaging.


Choosing the right light source for spectroscopic applications in biomedicine


This webinar, sponsored by Ocean Optics. will explore the when and why of choosing between halogen, deuterium, xenon, LED and laser light sources for a range of biomedical applications, both inside and outside the lab.


Optogenetics techniques and technologies


Some of the most exciting work in neuroscience is enabled by emerging optogenetics technologies that allow the control of specific neurons in the brain, central nervous system, and other parts of the body. This webcast, sponsored by Kendall Research Systems and Laserglow Technologies, will present an introduction to optogenetics as a tool.
