New Laser Power Sensors Eliminate Need for a
Stand Alone Meter
The new PowerMax USB/RS sensors from Coherent Inc. are the world’s first
laser power sensors that utilize state-of-the-art microelectronics miniaturization techniques and integrate an entire instrument within a USB
2.0 or RS-232 cable connector. Specifically, PowerMax USB/RS
sensors have all the signal processing and power measurement
electronics normally contained in a LabMax meter and connect
directly to a PC with plug and play functionality. Ideally suited for
low and high volume embedded sensor applications, this new
family of sensors eliminates the need for a separate meter box,
thus delivering a significant savings in cost and space without
reduction in performance.

NightSHADE: The Dedicated In Vivo Plant Imager—
A New Concept for Plant Research
Based on the experiences with the NightOWL in vivo imager,
Berthold Technologies has developed the new NightSHADE imaging system with plant research in mind. For
applications such as gene research, circadian rhythms,
regulation of plant growth, stress tolerance and drug
screening, the NightSHADE will offer unique features for
plant research. NightSHADE is equipped with a highly
sensitive 1 Mpixel emCCD camera cooled to an absolute
temperature of - 20° C. The electron multiplying mode of
the camera enhances the signals by amplifying the electrons during readout. This increases the sensitivity with
short exposure times and enables single photon detection.
The maximum quantum efficiency is reached between 550
and 750 nm, making the camera an ideal choice for luciferases.

New Versatile FLASH Handheld
The new Gentec-EO FLASH Handheld Power Meter is fast as a flash, literally. With a response
time that is two times shorter, the FLASH
allows the user to take more measurements in less time. Also, its very low
noise level allows for the accurate measurement of powers as low as 2 W, giving it a
wide power range. And, Gentec-EO introduces
its first fully customizable calibration on a hand-held meter. Furthermore, its all-metal body and high
damage threshold makes it the perfect choice for job
shops and laser servicing.

Laboratory Applications Made
Easy with UV Magnifier Lamp
The Spectroline Q-Series UV magnifier
lamps make laboratory analysis easy.
Twelve models with different combinations of long-wave UV, short-wave UV and
white light enable lab technicians to select
the right lamp for their particular application, whether it is for bacterial identification, speciman staining, mutation studies,
microbiology, fungus culture or any other
process. Q-Series lamps come with one,
two or four long-wave UV tubes, and most
models also feature either white light or
short-wave UV tubes. The high-resolution
magnifier lens provides three-power magnification at an 8 inch ( 20 cm) focal length.
This makes even the most minute traces of
fluorescent material highly visible.
