HORIBA Scientific Expands FluoroMax Series with New FluoroMax Plus

HORIBA Scientific FluoroMax Plus

New instrument expands on the performance and unmatched sensitivity of the FluoroMax-4

HORIBA Scientific, global leader in Fluorescence spectroscopy systems, recently launched the new FluoroMax Plus, a convenient, affordable, and easy-to-use benchtop spectrofluorometer.   

The new FluoroMax Plus expands on the already class-leading capabilities of our FluoroMax series with the option of a second detector and two position grating turret, providing an extended range out to 1650 nm, and TCSPC performance down to 25 ps.  The higher sensitivity offered by FluoroMax Plus enables faster measurement of weaker and smaller samples.

“The FluoroMax Plus was designed for maximum versatility while retaining the convenience of a benchtop unit,” said Ishai Nir, Director of Fluorescence at HORIBA Scientific. “With the expanded choice of detectors and gratings, many new experiments are now possible using the FluoroMax series.”

Accurion Brewster Angle Microscope

Accurion brewster angle microscope

The Accurion nanofilm_ep4bam is a special configuration of the ep4 imaging ellipsometry platform. It is an ideal thin films imaging system and can be upgraded to an imaging ellipsometer. It is a completely "hands-off" computer-controlled system, using proprietary motor control circuitry. The nanofilm_ep4bam displays real-time images of your sample directly on the monitor and features important image processing functions. An "objective scanner" provides extended depth-of-field for overall-focused images.

The combination of a high power green laser and excellent objectives allows lateral resolutions of 1 micron, the current limit of CCD optical detectors.

The powerful software makes operation easy and convenient. As a complete solution, the system comes including the computer, electronics, and all necessary software needed to begin measurements on your existing trough, or with one of our integrated troughs. The trough comes as a separate item and is not included as standard.

Ekspla PGX01 series: High energy, narrow linewidth picosecond optical parametric generators (OPGs)

Ekspla PGX01

Ekspla PGX01 series picosecond optical parametric generators (OPGs) feature high pulse energy and narrow linewidth. PGX01 series OPGs are an excellent choice for researchers who need picosecond tunable source from UV to mid IR. Due to the unique tunability range these devices are a very attractive and cost-efficient alternative to other tunable laser radiation sources.  


Multi-Function Supercontinuum Fibre Laser SC-Pro from YSL Photonics

The SC-Pro from YSL Photonics is a supercontinuum laser with tunable MHz-range repetition rate and adjustable power. The spectrum covers the range from 400nm to 2400nm. It’s especially suitable for fluorescence lifetime imaging, nanophotonics, infrared spectroscopy and other fields when working at the condition of 25MHz 5W. When working at 1-5MHz, it offers pulse energies of more than a micro-joule, which is ideal for fluorescence spectroscopy, or STED imaging fields.

With its unique features, SC-Pro makes it possible to generate a supercontinuum source with low repetition rate, microjoule pulse energy and high repetition rate,100 nJ pulse energy.
