PARSTAT MC Multichannel Potentiostat: the most modular and robust multi-channel electrochemical testing platform on the market

315 parstat mc with pmc 200

The Princeton Applied ResearchPARSTAT® MC (PMC)® MC (PMC) is the most modular and robust multi-channel electrochemical testing platform on the market.
The PMC chassis provides a robust environment up to 10 modules, up to 20 channels.  

Channels can operate simultaneously for high-throughput routine testing, asynchronously for different experiments on distinct cells or in a complex matrix of multiple electrodes in a single test environment. Additional channels can be added on-site by the user, even while other channels are in operation. Every functional block within the chassis is designed to be user-replaceable minimizing the impact of any interruptions in your experiment.

Laser-fried bacon strips: when worlds collide

From Gentec-EO: Bacon-loving physicists and engineers rejoice! The powers that be have heard our plea: laser-fried bacon strips are now a thing. What a time to be alive, to cite a Canadian rapper.

Laser cooking, for lack of a better name at this time, is a novel dry-heating method pioneered in Japan by Kentaro Fukuchi at Meiji University, along with his associate Kazuhiro Jo from Kyushu University.

Their approach is actually the subject of a paper, so their methodology and observations are documented in a way that corresponds with the scientific method. It goes without saying that the food is grabbing our attention here, but as a company operating in the domain of laser applications, we couldn’t help but notice some details about the laser setup and process as a whole in use in these videos.

SIOS Messtechnik GmbH: SP-NG Series Laser Interferometer

SIOS Laser Interferometer

  • Flexible, ultra-precise length measuring system
  • Modern industrial design, protection against splash water
  • Single-beam measuring principle minimizes Abbe errors.
  • Plane mirrors and tilt-invariant reflectors are possible.
  • Compact system for on-site use possible

The laser interferometers of the SIOS Messtechnik GmbH SP-NG series are precision length measuring instruments with a wide range of applications in research and industry. They can be adapted to specific tasks and are characterized by easy handling and beam adjustment. The compact design enables them to be used even in confined spaces. In addition to small ball reflectors with screw and magnet attachments also plane mirrors, other tilt-invariant reflectors and surfaces with optical quality are used. The long-range laser interferometer SP 15000 NG is available in different versions for measuring ranges up to 40 m, 60 m and 80 m. By further additional components such as a 90° beam deflection in four spatial directions or a highly stable beam direction alignment for very compact designs expands the range of applications of laser interferometers. Depending on the application, powerful software solutions for measurement and calibration are available.

New from Ocean Optics: Ocean MZ5 ATR-MIR Spectrometer Rapid, Accurate Mid-Infrared Analysis

OceanMZ5 right 480x480

The Ocean Optics Ocean MZ5 is a miniature ATR spectrometer with measurement capabilities from 1818-909 cm-1  (5.5-11 µm). This fully self-contained instrument — including sample interface, light sources and detector — provides a compact, fast and scalable alternative to traditional FTIR spectroscopy. Applications include chemical discrimination, food and flavorings analysis, environmental testing and scientific research.

Ocean MZ5 is ready to go out of the box and does not require any external equipment such as light sources or fibers. Ocean Mirror, the software that comes with the system, is designed for measuring absorbance and transmittance of liquids placed on the instrument’s crystal surface.
