Gattaquant: Quantitative Expansion Microscopy with Nanorulers

image manager product images thumbnail expansion nanorulers

"Expansion microscopy evolved as an interesting alternative in the field of super-resolution microscopy by physically expanding the target sample to increase its size by a multiple and to subsequently image the sample by conventional fluorescence microcopy. But the quantitative determination of the expansion factor remains challenging, since microscopic measurement standards are missing.

Here we use DNA nanorulers in combination with expansion microscopy to expand the fluorescently marked rulers in 2D and to determine the intermark distances before and after expansion. We compare macroscopic and microscopic expansion factors where we found substantial deviations, which should be considered for the quantitative discussion of expansion microscopy data of biological cells and tissues.

 Congratulations ESA on Sentinel-5P take off

Fascination space - after the launch of the Mars Rover in November 2011, nanoplus lasers are again part of a prestigious space project. This time, nanoplus lasers are on board the TROPOMI (Tropospheric Monitoring Instrument) which is the single payload of the Copernicus Sentinel-5 Precursor satellite.

nanoplus has congratulated the project team under The Netherlands and ESA aegis to the successful launch of its Copernicus satellite on October 13th, 2017, from Plesetsk, Russia, saying: "We are excited that our lasers are part of this important mission on monitoring air quality around the globe. According to the project motto 'Observing our future', we will follow Tropomi's results with great interest."

Ekspla T-SPEC Series Real-time Terahertz Spectrometer

t spec series real time terahertz spectrometer

The T-SPEC Real-time Terahertz Spectrometer offered by Ekspla is a powerful tool for investigative applications of pulsed terahertz waves. With simple and robust design, it is easy-to-use and adaptable to individual requirements. The unique design of microstrip photoconductive antenna fabricated on low-temperature grown GaAs substrate ensures broadband spectral coverage and high dynamic range. The system is designed with two delay lines: fast and slow. Fast scan line allows real time data acquisition with 10 spectra/s speed and 110 ps time window. Average of collected spectra can increase dynamic range to 70 dB at pulse maximum and extend spectral range up to 4.5 THz. Additional slow delay line allows combination of multiple time windows; thus spectrometer obtains excellent spectral resolution < 2.5 GHz. The fast scan line is designed without bearings and uses a magnetically coupled drive which makes it extremely reliable and significantly extends the lifetime. T-SPEC spectrometer has hermetic housing with mounted gas inlets.

Ocean Optics Develops Mid-IR Sensing Capabilities in Partnership with Pyreos

Ocean Optics Pyreos MIR applications 480x288

Ocean Optics has expanded its spectroscopy capabilities by partnering with Pyreos Limited (Edinburgh, Scotland) to develop new mid-IR solutions. Unlike traditional FT-IR spectrometers, the unique combination of Pyreos’ detectors and Ocean Optics applied spectroscopy knowledge will enable businesses and researchers to create rapid, accurate and field-portable devices. MIR technology makes possible a wealth of potential applications in chemical and pharmaceutical quality, food and agriculture analysis, environmental testing, and scientific research.

Ocean Optics has extensive applications and OEM development experience across the UV, Visible and NIR ranges, while Pyreos is the world’s only supplier of thin film PZT pyroelectric sensors. These are used for MIR sensing including in-line arrays. The partnership combines Ocean Optics spectrometer design and manufacturing expertise with the Pyreos line array technology. Ocean and Pyreos are working on an ultra-fast, compact Mid-IR ATR reflectance system for labs that will set a new benchmark for size and value in the research and science market. This is expected in the first half of 2018.
