SearchLight™ is a free, intuitive, online plotting tool helps you overcome the obstacles many fluorescence instrument designers and users face with spectral management.

The Melles Griot XPLAN Lens Series fluorescence microscope imaging systems enable the rapid development of breadboard instruments for next-gen sequencing, proteomics, and spatial biology applications.

Introducing Mad City Labs new sample scanning atomic force microscope. Powered by our industry leading closed loop nanopositioners to ensure high resolution performance, true decoupled motion and virtually undetectable out-of-plane motion.

Mad City Labs offers a complete product line of high precision piezo nanopositioners, micropositioners, single molecule microscopes, and atomic force microscopes (AFM).

The MadAFM atomic force microscope is designed for ease of use and simple installation and equipped with industry-leading closed-loop nanopositioners for precision movement of the sample and probe.

The SL160  automated microscope slide loader will be the standard for OEMs and system integrators and allow for precise and safe loading of slides for the pathology, cytology, and screening markets.

The P-725.xCDE2 PIFOC Focus Scanner provides dynamic scanning with travel ranges of 100 µm, 400 µm, or 800 µm and significantly faster response and longer lifetime than motorized drives.

Precision-class XY stages are suitable for applications that require fast precision positioning. When switched off, the drive holds the stage stable, reducing energy consumption and heat generation.
