PCO edge 4.2 bi     
- new back illuminated sCMOS camera   
The pco.edge 4.2 bi is a back illuminated camera sensor with high resolution and a 6.5 x 6.5 μm² pixel size for high-quality images with quantum efficiency up to 95%. The pco.edge 4.2 bi incorporates a powerful USB 3.1 interface, and a flexible cooling system allowing the use of air or water to cool the sensor down to -25 °C. At this temperature, the dark current is reduced to 0.2 e-/pixel/s. 
Key features:
  • Back illuminated sensor
  • Up to 95% QE
  • Down to -25°C adjustable cooling
  • 2048 x 2048 pixel resolution
  • 40 fps maximum frame rate
  • USB 3.1 Gen1

Serstech 100 Indicator  
-Handheld Raman Spectrometer 
The Serstech 100 Indicator is a cost-effective, handheld Raman Spectrometer that can identify more than 14,000 substances - solid or liquid. At only 605g, it is the most compact unit on the market and can be tailored to meet the user's needs.  
With intuitive Chemdash software (management and reporting software), it offers users the ability to customise their substance libraries - to identify any combination of explosives, narcotics, toxic industrial chemicals (TICs), pharmaceuticals and chemical warfare agents. It also enables users to gather and share information about substances and update one or more instruments, on a PC or in the cloud.

MIPAR - New Innovative, User-Friendly Image Analysis Software 
- for material science 
MIPAR is a revolutionary image analysis software, capable of identifying and measuring features from nearly any image one can capture. This user-friendly software enables users to test samples such as nickel, titanium, steel, composites, fibres etc., and develop a Recipe to detect features of interest. The software can then process multiple images with the same Recipe using its powerful 'Batch Processor' function. Once a user has developed a Recipe for an image, it can easily be applied to other similar images in the Batch Processor. The subsequent results can be analysed by making global, feature and local measurements. 

Some examples of existing MIPAR recipes include:
  • Particle Sizing, Morphology and Shape
  • Porosity and Pore measurement in Foams
  • Fibre Diameter Distribution
  • Filter and Fabric Porosity
  • Grain Structures in Metals and Composites
  • BiModal particles in Metal Structures like Titanium
  • Material science
  • Particle Analysis
  • Earth Science
  • Life Science

Cameras from Greateyes   
- Scientific Full-Frame CCD Cameras for VUV, EUV, X-Ray Imaging and Spectroscopy  
Based on a unique platform concept, Greateyes offers a portfolio of scientific cameras with vacuum interface for imaging and spectroscopy in the VUV, EUV, soft and hard X-ray range. Incoming photons are directly detected by the CCD sensor. Besides precise measurement of high energy radiation, the detectors exhibit high sensitivity in the ranges NIR, VIS as well as UV. Select among different spectral sensitivities and flange types to find the best solution for your imaging or spectroscopic application.
Spectral Ranges:
  • Vacuum-Ultraviolet (VUV)
  • Extreme-Ultraviolet (EUV)
  • Soft X-ray
  • Hard X-ray
  • NIR, VIS, UV

IO Industries Victorem™ CoaXPress  
- Compact, High Performance Industrial Video Camera Series  
The Victorem™ CoaXPress camera series - from IO Industries Inc., is a broad range of compact industrial video cameras featuring high performance Sony CMOS image sensors and high-bandwidth CoaXPress video output. With resolutions ranging from 0.4MP to 20.5MP and frame rates into the hundreds of frames per second, these powerful cameras are ideal for performance-driven applications such as:   
  • volumetric video capture
  • machine vision
  • automated optical inspection

- Solar Simulation and PV Testing Equipment  
Sciencetech solar simulators produce high intensity, uniform illumination on a target area. Their cutting-edge technology incorporates a unique system of mirrors that 'fold' the light onto the target plane. This minimises the loss of light, with little to no spectral distortion, as well as eliminating the presence of chromatic aberration in the output beam. In addition to this, each of Scientech's solar simulators are customisable to best suit the unique requirements of the user.
Applications include:
  • Spectroscopy
  • Radiometry
  • Photocatalysis
  • Photovoltaics and Materials Testing
  • Photon Counting
  • Laser Induced Breakdown Spectrometry (LIBS)
