Product News Andor Launches iXon Life for Fluorescence Microscopy

Andor announced the launch of the iXon Life Electron Multiplying CCD camera platform for fl uorescence microscopy. Featuring single-photon- sensitive, back-illuminated EMCCD technology and overclocked to market leading frame rate performance, iXon Life is uniquely available in an accessible price bracket, normally associated with lower-cost back-illumi-

nated sCMOS technology. Available in 1024 × 1024 and 512 × 512 sensor formats, back-illuminated to deliver the highest and broadest QE of any microscopy camera, and deep-cooled down to -80°C for minimal darkcurrent.

Leica Microsystems Launches High-Precision Scanning Stage for Stereo Microscopes and Macroscopes

Leica Microsystems launched a high-precision scanning stage for stereo microscopes and macroscopes, the Leica LMT260 XY Scanning Stage. To ensure successful experiments, it off ers a repeatability of 0.25 μ m for samples weighing less than 0.5 kg, and of 1 μ m for heavier loads of 1.5 kg. T is repeatability is reached at a resolution of 5 nm. Such precision is especially interesting for users who perform time-lapse experiments

such as multi-well screenings.
