  Fluorescent Tags and Nanoparticles Compared as Biological Imaging Tools Using Prior Stage

A Prior stage has been used in a ground-breaking study comparing traditional fluorescent tags to Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering Nanoparticles (SERS NPs), which found there were significant differences between the two imaging methods.

H117Prior Scientific's H117 Motorized Precision Stage was used in a study comparing the characteristics of traditional fluorescent probes with SERS NPs, in which the two methods were used to fluorescently image both live and fixed cells. Interest in using SERS NPs rather than traditional fluorescent tags in biological imaging is growing....

 

  New Fluorescence Microscopy Illumination System

The Lumen 200 Fluorescence Illumination System from Prior Scientific offers a powerful, cost effective alternative to traditional short arc Mercury vapour lamps and bulbs used in fluorescence microscopy.

lumen 200Mercury vapour lamps and bulbs suffer from a number of limiting disadvantages including an operational lifetime rarely exceeding 200 hours and the need for time consuming alignment procedures during installation. In addition Mercury vapour bulbs are susceptible to flickering, limiting the use of these light sources in quantitative fluorescent microscopy....

 

  Precision Focusing Block for Microscopy

Prior Scientific has announced the FB201 co-axial coarse and fine focusing block, designed for OEM microscopy applications where precise fine focus adjustment is required. 

FB201 co-axial coarse and fine focusing blocRack and pinion mounting allows the FB201 to produce smooth, precise focusing over 29 mm of travel. A large coarse focus mechanism incorporates a slip clutch and tension adjustment. Fine focus adjustment control is graduated in two micron divisions throughout the coarse focus range. The focus block can be easily adapted to various mounting configurations and can support up to 5 kg. Motorised variants able to...

 

  Precise Microscopy Control Creates Stunning Product Designs

Prior Scientific reports that its OptiScan® controller together with associated microscope stage and focus motor have been used to create stunning artistic designs.

prior imageUsing this equipment, Richard Weston, a former Professor of Architecture at Cardiff University (UK) has acquired high magnification images of minerals, such as agate, fluorite, and calcite, to produce unique designs for a range of products including scarves, glass panels, and in one case a facade for a three story house. Asked about his novel use of the Prior stage and stepper motor, Richard Weston commented...

 

  Accurate Measurement of Microscope Illumination

The LumaSpec LS800S from Prior Scientific is a compact visible light spectrophotometer which provides quantitative spectral power data enabling users to characterise and monitor the illumination source of their microscope system. 

LumaSpec LS800SOperating from 350 nm to 800 nm with 1.5 nm resolution, the LumaSpec LS800S uses an illumination target slide mounted on your microscope to provide accurate and precise information about the illumination in the sample plane, leading to the most relevant information being obtained. The LumaSpec LS800S is capable of analysing the output from a wide variety of light sources, ranging from the dimmest LED to a powerful mercury...

 

  Rapid & Efficient Microscope Inspection of Engine Wear

Prior Scientific has announced a new 47 mm filter sample holder for its H101A microscope stage.

47 mm filter sample holderInspection of filters is critical in many industrial processes. This process is vital for fulfilling the requirements of regulations, such as ISO 16232, which covers the characterisation and measurement of particulate contamination of the parts, components and assemblies which make up the fluid circuits of motor vehicle combustion engines. Filter inspection is important in the design and testing of engines, allowing manufacturers to identify...

 

  Affordable Multi-Functional Controller for Microscope Accessories

The OptiScan® III from Prior Scientific is a powerful, entry level system for controlling the OptiScan range of motorised microscope stages and focusing devices. 

Optiscan IIICompatible with a wide range of both upright and inverted microscopes, the compact OptiScan III uniquely can be used to drive a motorised stage and a focus motor while precision motor drive technology ensures quiet and smooth motion. A joystick provides users with precise and ergonomic control of their microscope accessories in the X, Y and Z axes. The controller is compatible with most image analysis software packages...
