UNF-MSERF Houses State-of-the-Art TESCAN Biological Microscope

T e University of North Florida has partnered with TESCAN in the installation of one of its new Q-Phase microscopes, a unique instrument for quantitative phase imaging based on holographic microscopy. T e Q-Phase microscope is a one-of-a- kind holographic microscope capable of imaging live cells for up to fi ve days. T e agreement between the university and TESCAN provides UNF the opportunity to house brand-new and unique microscopes for instrument validation and demonstration for potential users.


Princeton Instruments Honored by Laser Focus World 2018 Innovators Awards Program

Princeton Instruments announced that its BLAZE

recognized by the judges of the annual Laser Focus World Innovators Awards program. The BLAZE camera design incorporates new super-deep-depletion HR-Sensors, which offer the highest near-infrared

® spectroscopy CCD camera was

quantum efficiency of any spectroscopic CCD available, or new deep-depletion LD-Sensors, which are specially engineered to provide extremely low dark current (thus allowing long exposures in demanding spectroscopy applications).

New Microscope Installed at the University of Leeds

In a joint eff ort by PicoQuant and JPK Instruments, a highly versatile microscope that combines AFM with fl uorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) has been installed at the University of Leeds. T is integrated solution enables researchers to obtain structural information from biological samples with resolutions down to the molecular level while recording the fl uorescence behavior of a wide variety of probes from the same sample area. T e system combines AFM and optical/FLIM information in a simple and straightforward way.
