WITec AFM headWITec is a market leading manufacturer of high-quality micro- and nano-analytical imaging instruments for the geoscience researcher, forensic and materials scientists, pharmaceutical lab technician, semiconductor manufacturer, and food and drinks technologist.

Elliot Scientific is now the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor for WITec confocal Raman microscopes, Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM), and Scanning Near-field Optical (SNOM) Microscopes.

WITec Raman imaging systems offer diffraction-limited spatial resolution (typically down to λ/2 of the excitation wavelength, ~200 nm) for solid and liquid analysis without the need for labelling or any other sample preparation. The resulting images deliver clear and detailed information related to the sample's chemical compounds and their distribution.

A key feature of WITec's award-winning systems is correlative analysis whereby Raman imaging can be combined with AFM or SNOM in the one instrument. Combination of the various imaging techniques and switching between the different acquisition modes is simply done by rotating the microscope turret.

3D Raman profilingWITec emerged from the academic world in 1997 and the company's team of scientists and engineers work together on a programme of continuous product innovation to ensure WITec can deliver reliable groundbreaking solutions to the latest imaging challenges.

Elliot Scientific's new Managing Director, Dr. Adrian Knowles, has many years of experience in spectroscopy systems and will be responsible for the new WITec product range.

Mad City Labs say Nano-ZL ideal for high-speed multiwell plate imaging

Watch closely...
500 microns of travel in action

Nano-Z series The Mad City Labs' Nano-ZL Series are long range, Z-axis nanopositioners specifically designed to hold multiwell plates used in biomedical research. High-throughput single cell fluorescence microscopy and high speed, high resolution confocal imaging can be accomplished while simultaneously adjusting the Z-axis position to remove the effects of multiwell plate irregularities.

The Nano-ZL Series has true flexure guided motion and contains internal position sensing for a resolution of better than 1 nm over the full 500 µm travel range, and sub-nanometer for the shorter 100 µm travel range. In addition to high resolution spatial imaging, the Nano-ZL step response allows entire Z-section acquisitions with minimal photo bleaching. For more information, please contact us.

Rugged Monitoring introduce multi-channel capability with new T301 module

The new T301 series is a robust 8 to 24 channel (expandable to 256 channels) fibre optic temperature monitor from Rugged Monitoring designed for use in environments where extreme conditions limit conventional temperature sensor/monitor systems.

The instrument has a measurement range of -269 to +300 °C; complete immunity to RFI, EMI, microwave and high voltages; and is compatible with a wide range of GaAs fibre optic temperature sensors from both Rugged Monitoring and other companies.

The T301 is designed for data collection and ease of integration into existing systems. As such it is equipped with an RS-485 interface as standard. Optional interfaces include: RS-232, Gigabit Optical Ethernet, or simple 0-10 V analogue outputs. Please contact us for more information.

Seebeck coefficient measurement made easy with CryoLab as video explains

The Seebeck effect is the direct conversion of temperature differences to electric voltage and vice versa. A thermoelectric device creates voltage when there is a different temperature on each side. Conversely, when a voltage is applied to it, it creates a temperature difference.

By using the CryoLab from DEMCON kryoz, it is possible to measure the Seebeck coefficient of a material sample, wire or thin film from 373 Kelvin down to cryogenic temperatures. DEMCON kryoz demonstrate how such measurements are made using their equipment in this informative video. For more information, please contact us.
