Failure analysis and particle isolation in a post-COVID-19 world.

The spread of COVID-19 has led to great changes in the lives of people worldwide.  This includes the need for increased social distancing and the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to minimize the risk of spreading and acquiring disease from others and the surrounding environment. The use of PPE, including gloves, safety goggles, and a mask causes difficulties for failure analysis and particle isolation where precise microscopic sample handling is often required.  Precise manipulations using probes and other handheld tools while looking through a microscope, are much more difficult while wearing PPE.

The Micro Support Axis Pro micromanipulator is an excellent solution for performing precise microscopic sampling where PPE is required.

EX SITU LIFT-OUT WITH A BENCHTOP MICROMANIPULATOR

Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) represents one of the most powerful super-microscopy techniques for material characterization. In order to obtain powerful images, it is critical to have a very thin section of material that allows for electron transmission through the sample.

The Micro Support Axis Pro micromanipulator can transfer FIB foils to TEM grids outside (ex situ) the SEM chamber.

Webinar: BIOMOLECULAR ANALYSIS OF ORGANELLES OF LIVING CELLS USING RAMAN MICROSCOPY

Friday, September 25, 2020 – 10 AM Eastern time, 7 AM Pacific time.

Ramanomics

The current level of Raman microscopy and spectrum analysis methods opens up new perspectives in cell biology for studying dynamics at the subcellular level. Modernization of the Raman microscope with the installation of the biomolecular analysis program code (BCA) made it possible to measure the concentration of an undivided class of biomolecules at the level of organelles in a living cell in the volume of about 1 cubic micron, and for the class of lipids – defined parameters related to the elements of lipidomics. A new bioessay is currently being formed in the Omics group of disciplines – Ramanomics. Despite the large heterogeneity of the biomolecular composition of organelles, Ramanomics allows us to identify patterns of processes occurring in cells.

This webinar is brought to you by SOL Instruments.

Barnett Technical Services is the North American Distributor for these Raman microscopes. Further information on these products may be found here: https://barnett-technical.com/ostec/raman/.

SciX 2020 virtual eXchange

We are excited to be showing an e-poster at the SciX 2020 virtual conference. The poster touches on the work we have been doing with micro plastic research instrumentation and procedure. The poster will be available at the show October 12-15 2020. We will also post it here on the site after the show.

The instruments that we discuss are the Axis Pro micromanipulator for particle isolation and the Ostec e200 Raman microscope for characterization.

Webinar: Exploration of Limits-of-Detection using HTVS Raman Spectroscopy

Date: Wednesday, September 30, 2020 Time: 06:00-07:00 CEST

High Throughput Raman Spectroscopy using Tornado Spectral System’s Hyperflux ProPlus Raman Spectrometer allows for both fast measuring times and low limits of detection due to the proprietary High Throughput Virtual Slit. A variety of samples will be analyzed using this technology including flow chemistry scenarios and analytes of interest in a cell broth background. The dangers of running averages and their use in traditional raman spectroscopy will also be a point of discussion. All multivariate chemometric analysis was performed using SIMCA® 16.

This webinar is presented by Dr. Shamus Driver. He is a Senior Raman Innovation Scientist for Tornado Spectral Systems. Before joining Tornado Spectral Systems, he worked at a pharmaceutical company in Process Analytical Technology development using Raman and Near-IR spectroscopy. He earned a Ph.D. in environmental chemistry from Ball State University in Muncie, IN, as well as Bachelors and Masters degrees in Chemistry from Ball State University.

Rapid, Sensitive Raman Detection for Bioprocess Monitoring

The Tornado Hyperflux PRO Plus Raman system that utilizes High Throughput Virtual Slit (HTVS) technology provides excellent performance for applications where rapid and sensitive Raman measurements are required. The system has recently been incorporated into the Sartorius ambr® bioprocess system. The OPIS 35 laser configuration for operation in ATEX Zone 0 environments allows for worldwide use of this technology.
