Industry Insights
Solving PCR Filter Challenges For High-Performance qPCR Instruments

qPCR instrument users need high sensitivity and pristine signal clarity to achieve numerous delicate tasks. The right combination of optical filters significantly improves this functionality.
Booth # 3239

Laser Components Features Quality Powell Lenses For Line Lasers

Laser Components now has the capability to manufacture high-quality Powell lenses in house. Powell lenses generate lines by transforming narrow laser beams into straight lines with uniform intensity profile, unlike standard cylindrical lenses that also create laser lines but with uneven Gaussian profiles.

Bus Bars And Optics

A bus bar is a strip of conductive material applied to the surface of conductively coated glass, most commonly ITO (indium tin oxide) or IMITO (index matched ITO) coatings. Abrisa applies bus bars either by thin film deposition of chrome-nickel-gold or by screen printing.

Focus On Focus: Three Technologies For Collecting 3D Image Data

Cells often cannot be imaged in a single plane, either due to cell thickness being greater than the depth of field or to inherent unevenness across the sample. Imaging cells grown on 3D substrates is increasingly prevalent as it provides a more true-to-life representation than traditional 2D cultures.
