 What is Infrared Microscopy?
 
What is Infrared Microscopy?Infrared (IR) microscopy, also known as infrared microspectroscopy, is a type of light microscopy that uses a source that transmits infrared wavelengths of light to view an image of the sample. Unlike other optical microscopes with absorbent glass optics, an infrared microscope has reflective optics to allow the microscope to cover the entire spectral range of infrared light.
 
 
 Using NanoQuant Plate™ for Fluorescence-Based DNA Quantification in Small Volume Samples
 
Using NanoQuant Plate™ for Fluorescence-Based DNA Quantification in Small Volume SamplesUsing absorbance measurements at 260 nm (A260) is the traditional way of determining the concentrations of nucleic acid samples. However, this method does not discriminate between RNA and DNA and is restricted in terms of sensitivity. An alternative strategy is to use fluorescent dyes that bind to DNA molecules. Using these dyes, nucleic samples can be quantified with a higher sensitivity.

Japanese scientists develop solar-light-driven fully integrated microfluidic device for miniaturized systemsMiniaturized devices such as microsensors often require an independent, equally miniaturized power supply. Searching for suitable systems, Japanese scientists have now developed a fully integrated microfluidic device that produces hydrogen fuel and converts it into electrical energy based on photocatalysis.
 
 
 SP Scientific announce new freeze dryer for robust and cost-effective cycle development
 
SP Scientific announce new freeze dryer for robust and cost-effective cycle developmentSP Scientific announces the LyoCapsule™ Freeze Dryer - an exciting new lyophilization instrument that delivers results comparable to larger R&D freeze dryers enabling a Quality by Design (QbD) approach to cycle development even when materials are highly expensive or limited in quantity. This addition aligns with SP’s mission to provide ‘line of sight’ scale-up equipment and technology from R&D through to commercial freeze drying.
