Using the ventus in Laser Tweezers Raman Spectroscopy (LTRS)

Unfortunately, one in two people born after 1960 in the UK will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime. Typical large-scale analysis of cancer cells means individual cell attributes are averaged and, therefore, single cell detection is of real interest. The current process involves individual analysis of manually trapped cells which is [...]

Have you seen the gem vs. the wacker plate yet?

Last week was the launch of our latest video from our ‘Robust and Reliable’ laser series. In this video we test the gem laser’s ability to survive after the ultimate vibration test: buried in sand and flattened with a wacker plate, an instrument used by builders. The gem laser felt the force and power from [...]
