Development of Nano Microscope Awarded

Second award goes to researcher investigating nanoparticles with high-energy X-rays

Quality Control for Fluorescence-based Systems

Innovative fluorescence quality management solution. Since fluorescence-based systems tend to fluctuate from day to day, i. e. due to instable light sources or other effects, they may provide data which are difficult to reproduce. The new device ensures that the instruments provide precise and reliable data.

Microscopes as Thermometers

A new transparent coating combines thermal imaging and microscopy

New inverted Confocal Raman Microscope

Inverted Raman microscope“alpha300 Ri”, that combines the advantages of data acquisition from below with the established merits of 3D confocal Raman imaging. Raman Imaging is a powerful and versatile technique that can chemically characterize samples nondestructively and without labeling or other specialized preparation. The speed, sensitivity and resolution of the “alpha300” series are now available from a new angle. The new setup is directed in particular to research applications in the fields of life sciences, biomedicine and pharmaceutics.

Raman Microscope

The “alpha300” series includes microscopes for Raman spectroscopy and imaging, atomic force microscopy and near-field microscopy. They all share a unique modularity that allows for single-technique solutions as well as correlative imaging configurations. Additional methods of analysis can be integrated with any instrument in the series at any time. The newly-developed “alpha300 access” microscope was […]
