  • Desktop SEM / Correlative Microscopy / CLEM

    Delphi is the world's first fully integrated solution that enables fast correlative microscopy with unique overlay precision.

    The system is extremely easy to use for both light- and electron-microscopy users. Even more importantly, Delphi opens the door to these techniques for all laboratories through a cost-efficient package that does not require experienced microscopy skills to image and interpret data.

    In life science imaging, fluorescence microscopy provides precise localization for specific events, while electron microscopy is able to provide detailed structural information with nanoscale resolution and very good depth-of-focus. Combined, the two techniques quickly provide a more complete picture for the user with a technique known as Correlative Light & Electron Microscopy or CLEM.

    This integration enables scientists to do correlative microscopy without the challenges typically associated with CLEM:
    • The Region Of Interest (ROI) does not need to be retrieved, as you are working in the same ROI switching from LM to EM and vice versa.
    • The sample does not need to be transferred from one microscope to the other, saving sample quality as well as time.
    • Correlation accuracy is fully automated and highly precise.

    With the Delphi, CLEM is made accessible for virtually any laboratory thanks to its ease-of-use and affordability. Please also visit www.delphimicroscope.com for more detailed information.

    ZetaView® BASIC NTA - Nanoparticle Tracking Video Microscope PMX-120

    For the analysis of size, concentration, fluorescence, electrophoretic mobility and sub-populations of individual nanoparticles.

    Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) captures the Brownian motion of each particle in the video. Based on the different diffusion movements of large and small particles in the surrounding liquid, the hydrodynamic diameter of the particles is determined. Furthermore, the charge state of the particle surface (zeta potential) can be measured via the movement of the particles in an applied electric field.

    Pattern parameters, such as intensity fluctuations, surface geometry and shape of the particles as well as particle concentration are documented at each recording and can be used to distinguish sub-populations.

    All these analyzes are carried out quickly and statistically reliably as required in the scattered light or fluorescence mode.

    Antibody-conjugated EVs can be differentiated from membrane-enveloped vesicles labeled with corresponding intercalating dyes.

    Depending on the type of sample and the measuring mode, the measuring range is between 15 nm and 5 μm.

    BI-MwA Molecular Weight Analyzers

    The BI-MwA Molecular Weight Analyzer is simple to use, but incorporates sophisticated features. Inject your sample into the low-volume, 7-angle flow cell. The sample is illuminated by a temperature stabilized, precision power-controlled diode laser. The ultra-stable, high-sensitivity, low-noise CCD detector automatically collects the scattered light. Then, the software extrapolates the data to zero angle for the absolute molecular weight determination.

    BI-DNDC Laser Light Scattering Instruments

    The BI-DNDC is a deflection type refractometer that may be used in either static or dynamic mode. In static mode, the specific refractive index increment, dn/dc, is determined. This value is required as a parameter in molecular weight measurements using light scattering. In dynamic mode dn/dc is already known, and the instrument is used as a concentration detector for HPLC and GPC applications.

    MicroBrook 2000L

    The MicroBrook 2000L utilizes a unique single-beam, dual-lens system that receives all the scattered signals emitted from particles in the nanometer to millimeter size range. Employing the highest quality lenses results in high resolution imaging of the diffracted and scattered light with low distortion, ensuring that the instrument will receive all signals – even weak signals at high angles from scattering of the smallest particles.


    The Brookhaven Instruments’ BI-200SM system opens the door to the rich fields of exploration of both Static Light Scattering (SLS) and Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS).

    The BI-200SM Research Goniometer System provides access to these studies with an automatic, modular and versatile system. It is a precision
    instrument designed for exacting scattering measurements. Based on a special turntable with precision ball bearings and stepping motor, the BI-200SM’s modern design and quality construction guarantee precise measurements due to the wobblefree movement of the detector. It is field proven in thousands of laboratories. It is ideal for molecular studies and submicron particle sizing.

    Brookhaven Instruments’ scientists have extensive experience in the development of instruments and methods for light scattering and this experience has been incorporated into the BI-200SM to make it the finest instrument available for research applications of light scattering.


    The NanoDLS is the gateway to absolute nanoparticle sizing including proteins and their aggregates (oligomers), polymers, dendrimers, micelles, and other colloidal materials. Either on-line (ASEC or SEC/GPC), or in batch-mode, it is an excellent tool for determination of hydrodynamic radii from 0.5 to a few microns.

    Based on the principles of dynamic light scattering, the NanoDLS uses an automatic, variable-power laser at 638 nm, maximum 35 mW power, an optical cell design, a singlemode fiber, a self-protecting avalanche photodiode and a 25ns/522 channel digital autocorrelator. Due to the optical cell, the NanoDLS can measure samples from extremely low to high concentrations. Such a design allows for small volumes and a vertical flow pattern, minimizing the effects of bubbles.

    For globular proteins and other rate samples, sizes are often small and concentrations low. Because of its unique optical cell design, the NanoDLS makes obtaining reliable data from such samples easy. In addition aggregate (oligomer) formation is readily probed because light scattering is supremely sensitive to small amounts of larger particles.

    MicroBrook 2000LD

    The MicroBrook 2000LD utilizes a unique single-beam, dual-lens system that receives all the scattered signals emitted from particles in the nanometer to millimeter size range. Employing the highest quality lenses results in high resolution imaging of the diffracted and scattered light with low distortion, ensuring that the instrument will receive all signals – even weak signals at high angles from scattering of the smallest particles.


    By providing both centrifugal and gravitational sedimentation in one instrument the BI-XDC brings these well established methods of particle sizing up to date for today's fine particle technology. With an X-ray technology to give error free measurements, fast and accurate size distributions across the ""one-micron"" transition region are easily obtained. Now, with a single instrument you can get true high resolution, accurate, particle size distributions from 10 nanometers right up to 100 microns. Brookhaven's advanced scanning detector technology and wide disc speed range lets you optimize analysis times and broaden the range of samples you can analyze.

    With the Brookhaven Bl-XDC there are no optical corrections and no optical properties to worry about, just a simple mass sensitive response based on X-ray absorption.

The PILATUS3 R 200K is also ideal for high throughput screening and ligand binding studies, especially when coupled with an ACTOR automatic sample changer.

    Why the HPAD detector?

    There are basically four types of detectors currently being used with single crystal diffractometers: HPAD, CCD, CMOS, and IP. The HPAD is the newest technology and is unique in that it is a photon counting detector that directly detects X-ray photons without the intermediate step of converting the photons to light with a phosphor.

    The HPAD detector allows for shutterless data collection due to the extremely fast readout. This capability eliminates errors in the diffraction data originating from shutter timing and goniometer stop/starts, which are invariably associated with traditional data collection, and minimizes data collection time. In addition, the extremely low noise characteristics means that you can count poorly diffracting samples for a long period of time without swamping the signal with electronic noise. The combination of these features means that you will collect better data faster.


    • Direct detection
    • Excellent point spread function – top hat
    • Excellent signal-to-noise ratio via single photon counting

    Automated crystal transport orientation and retrieval robot

    ACTOR™ is a proven commercial solution for automating routine crystal screening and data collection at both synchrotron beam lines and home laboratories. Compatible with almost any goniometer and detector combination, the ACTOR eliminates much of the physical handling of samples required during crystal screening and data collection.

    Rapid automatic crystal screening

    ACTOR allows you to screen up to 30 samples per hour. Adding automation to your structure solution pipeline also complements the high throughput needed for fragment based screening projects and structural genomics programs.

    Rigaku Oxford Diffraction now offers the HyPix-6000HE Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) detector. Like all HPCs, the HyPix-6000HE offers direct X-ray photon counting, single pixel point spread function and extremely low noise. The 100 micron pixel size allows better resolution of reflections for long unit cells as well as improving reflection profile analysis. The HyPix-6000HE has a high frame rate of 100 Hz, as well as a unique Zero Dead Time mode providing the ultimate in error-free shutterless data collection.

    The advantage of direct detection found in the Hypix-6000HE is that no phosphor is required and the size of the pixel determines the point spread function rather than the blooming that occurs on detectors with a phosphor. This means that reflections will be sharper and profile analysis will not require incorporating additional pixels to compensate for phosphor blooming leading to less experimental noise, such as air scatter, being incorporated into a reflection.

    As opposed to monolithic detectors, such as CMOS-based CPADs, a hybrid detector separates the detection area from the read-out electronics. This means that the full area of a pixel is sensitive to incoming photons, with the charge being transmitted through an indium bump bond to a secondary readout pixel. In monolithic detectors, each pixel contains a detection area and an electronics area, with the electronics area being insensitive to incoming photons. Monolithic detectors used in crystallography often have a 30% dead area or detection-gap per pixel which occurs through the whole detector.

    The HyPix-6000HE is the perfect detector for measuring diffraction from small and poorly diffracting samples due to the extremely low noise characteristics: you can count as long as you need to without the dark current or noise build up seen in other detectors. When your crystals diffract well, the high frame rate and Zero Dead Time mode mean that you can collect data extremely fast and accurately in a shutterless mode.

    The instrument’s case is ergonomically designed so that any spills are dealt with by the sloping shape of the case or by the PEEK spill barrier that surrounds the shallow, easy-clean stainless steel prism dish.

    Inherent to the design is the high definition, capacitive touch-screen display that not only facilitates operation in factory environments, even when operated whilst wearing gloves, but also serves as the centrepiece for the software. Combined, the touchscreen and GUI help the operator quickly manoeuvre through the user and configuration menus. On-screen graphical prompts support simple operation such as method loading, calibration and routine maintenance.

    RFID swipe technology comes as standard, providing clearance and a log of operator and configuration functions – especially useful when being used in FDA-regulated environments operating in accordance with 21 CFR Part 11, or where good practice is adopted, e.g. as part of HACCP.

    Measurements with the RFM300-T are made through a familiar measuring mode or by way of a simple Methods system with one-touch configuration of scale, temperature and data storage, with up to 8000 results being saved alongside pre-set limits that can be used as an audit tool.



    The FEI Quanta line includes six variable-pressure and environmental scanning electron microscopes (ESEM™). All of which can accommodate multiple sample and imaging requirements for industrial process control labs, materials science labs and life science labs.

    The Quanta line of scanning electron microscopes are versatile, high-performance instruments with three modes (high vacuum, low vacuum and ESEM) to accommodate the widest range of samples of any SEM system. All the Quanta SEM systems can be equipped with analytical systems, such as energy dispersive spectrometer, wavelength dispersive x-ray spectroscopy and electron backscatter diffraction. In addition, the field emission gun (FEG) systems contain a S/TEM detector for bright-field and dark-field sample imaging. Another variable that changes amongst the SEM systems is the size of the motorized stage (50mm, 100mm, and 150mm) and the motorized z-range (25mm, 60mm, and 65mm, respectively). The Quanta 650 and 650 FEG are each designed with a roomy chamber, enabling the analysis and navigation of large specimens.
