Full High-Definition Cameras

Life-like digital microscopy is now a reality with the DP27 and DP22 digital cameras. Both cameras deliver fluid imaging at full high-definition resolution via a USB 3.0 interface and enable easy optimization for each and every application with three distinct modes. Researchers can enjoy visualization on a monitor that is virtually identical to that of the oculars. The cameras offer a detailed full high-definition live image with 30 fps for the DP22 and 22 fps for the DP27. The progressive readout subsequently ensures a fluid and true-to-life experience, ideal for both analysis and viewing comfort. Moreover, when precise focusing of intricate samples is necessary, the DP27 can provide a fast 15 fps live image at 5 megapixels, allowing the user to effectively zoom in directly on the display. Addressing specific requirements, both cameras deliver their full image quality also in a stand-alone configuration, with the new DP2-SAL controller directly connecting the camera to a monitor.

Multiplexing System

The AlphaPlex reagent technology is a homogeneous, all-in-one-well multiplexing reagent system for performing ultrasensitive immunoassay analyses, while providing research professionals with more data in less time and with minimal human intervention. AlphaPlex reagents draw upon PerkinElmer's AlphaLISA technology and are designed to extract more information from each assay by simultaneously quantifying multiple analytes in a single well. Based on PerkinElmer's proven Alpha Technology, an alternative to enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays, AlphaPlex reagents are a homogeneous luminescent proximity technology. When the Donor and Acceptor beads are brought together, a cascade of chemical reactions is set in motion, causing a greatly amplified signal. By using multiple Acceptor beads which emit different wavelengths, multiple analytes can be detected.

Scanning Electron Microscope

The new Syncerity back-illuminated, deep-cooled CCD cameras with ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) and NIR-enhanced 2,048 x 70 sensors come equipped with a front illuminated 1,024 x 256 CCD sensor for UV-VIS-NIR applications. Its high-resolution 14 µm pixel size makes it ideal for Raman instrumentation. The camera offers ultralow etaloning and more than 40% Quantum Efficiency at 1,000 nm for the NIR version while the UV-Vis version exhibits a 60% QE at 250 nm. The Syncerity BI UV-Vis and BI NIR offer a broad spectral response for increased versatility. Its lifetime vacuum warranty, compact size, and sensor format make the Syncerity BI NIR and BI UV-Vis, the ideal candidate for microspectroscopy applications. The Syncerity is a research-grade spectroscopy camera that combines affordability, performance, and versatility for OEM as well as research applications. Ruggedized connectors ensure overall system integrity in industrial environments, and its all metal sealed technology provides a permanent vacuum which comes with a lifetime maintenance-free warranty.

Exome Array

The CytoSure Medical Research Exome Array is highly targeted and exon-focused, enabling the accurate detection of medical research relevant microdeletions and microduplications. The high-density array (1x1M) contains over 4,600 hand-curated genes, which have been grouped into disease- and syndrome-specific panels. This research-validated gene content can also be customized for varying array formats (2x400K, 4x180K, or 8x60K) and diseases, enabling researchers to create bespoke solutions to suit both their content and throughput requirements. OGT's new array meets the needs of the medical research community by providing coverage of hand-curated, medically relevant genes on one array, enabling the detection of single or multiple exonic copy number variations (CNVs). As such, the array is an ideal complement to other genomic technologies, such as next generation sequencing, to provide accurate analysis of the full mutation spectrum.

Image Databasing Software

The new server-based image databasing software ZEN browser aids users in storage, filing, and organization, and backup of large digital data sets, making the use of these data sets reliable and easy. This technology, invaluable to users in fields such as pathology research, provides storage and organization both in the lab and on the go for large virtual slide databases. The intuitive web interface allows users to organize virtual microscopy data online and across platforms. The software can be accessed through any Internet browser, and is password protected for security purposes. An additional user management function restricts access to authorized individuals only, while allowing others to view images without administrative rights. All images are filed together with relevant metadata and customizable supporting documents. Access and permissions can be individually assigned, allowing users to customize how data is shared and keep information organized.
