The team at Edinburgh Instruments have welcomed 5 students over the summer, and have mentored them during their hands-on learning experience. These young business professionals have worked in various departments across the company, and have done everything from purchasing, to production.
Acquiring and interpreting steady state fluorescence data is not always straightforward. Below we offer some advice on commonly encountered problems to help you optimise the operation of your Edinburgh Instruments spectrometer.
What is the Inner Filter Effect?
The inner filter effect is a common problem in fluorescence spectroscopy, affecting spectral measurements in particular. Our team has come up with a solution to this.
Our team have put together a description on the inner workings of fluorescence spectrometers, and have provided a basic guide on fluorescence.
Our customers have had some great research articles published over the past month. Here are some of the best from July.
Dr. Anna Gakamsky, Applications Engineer at Edinburgh Instruments, and Dr. Dmitry Gakamsky, CEO at DMG Biophotonics recently presented their research on Tryptophan Fluorescence as a Research and Diagnostics Tool at Fluorescent Biomolecules and Their Building Blocks (FB3) at Glasgow University. Presented as a poster, you can download the full poster and view the research in this article.
PhotoIUPAC 2018 Conference, Ireland.
In July, Edinburgh Instruments attended the PhotoIUPAC 2018 conference in University College Dublin, Ireland. Our EMEA Sales Manager Hervé Boisson and our Product Specialist Maria Tesa were present at the exhibition and the scientific sessions. Maria reports on the event.
Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence (TADF) is a mechanism for enhancing the efficiency of Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs) (by harvesting triplet excitors). TADF has therefore attracted widespread interest in the OLED community and research into TADF and OLEDS is a popular application of our FS5 and FL1000 photoluminescence spectrometers.
