Spring SciX 2022 | Edinburgh Instruments to Attend in Liverpool

April 11 – April 14, 2022

University of Liverpool, United Kingdom


We are pleased to announce that Edinburgh Instruments will be attending the 2022 Spring edition of SciX, which will be taking place from Apr 11 – Apr 14 2022 in Liverpool, UK.

Spring SciX is a UK-based meeting of the successful SciX series, covering a wide range of analytical chemistry research, with a focus on early career researchers. Join leaders in the analytical sciences as they present progress on emergent topics, meet with exhibitors, and networks over four days in Liverpool.

Spring SciX will highlight progress on emergent research topics related to analytical chemistry, including molecular spectroscopy, Raman Spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, infrared (IR) spectroscopy, surface plasmon resonance (SPR), process analytical chemistry, fluorescence, bioanalytical and biomedical, and analytical sciences.

During the course of the conference members of our team will be on hand to discuss all our latest products, research, and how our instruments can assist you with your work.  If you’re attending Spring SciX and wish to arrange a time to chat with our team, please get in touch or contact us at If you cannot make the exhibitions and would like to learn more about our products, feel free to contact us at and we will set up a time to have a one-on-one call. In the meantime, we have put below some information you might find interesting.

Featured Application Notes

Confocal Raman and Photoluminescence Microscopy for Forensic Investigations

Confocal Raman and Photoluminescence Microscopy for Forensic Investigations

Forensic investigations often study extremely small samples which may need analysed by multiple techniques. Confocal Raman and Photoluminescence (PL) Microscopy are well-suited techniques for dealing with forensic science samples. Only microscopic amounts of sample are required, and the techniques are non-destructive and non-contact meaning the sample can be further analysed using complimentary techniques. No sample preparation is required, and the results provide chemical and spatial information on sample components. This application note details how Raman and PL microscopy can be used as a forensic analysis tool in any laboratory.

Identification of Microplastics Using Raman Spectroscopy

Identification of Microplastics Using Raman Spectroscopy

Microplastic analysis of materials found in our environment has become a priority to understand their potential impacts on human health. Raman microscopy offers unique advantages for microplastic analysis and identifying the chemical composition of the material. This application note demonstrates how the RM5 Raman Microscope combined with a spectral database can be used to identify three types of microplastics commonly found in marine environments.

What’s New at Edinburgh Instruments

Edinburgh Instruments Introduces New MicroPL Upgrade for Photoluminescence Spectrometers

Edinburgh Instruments is delighted to announce the introduction of a new upgrade for its photoluminescence spectrometers, designed and manufactured at their global headquarters in Scotland. The MicroPL upgrade enables the study of spectral or time-resolved photoluminescence of samples in the microscopic scale by converting an Edinburgh Instruments photoluminescence (PL) spectrometer into a combined spectrometer and microscope system. A wide range of microscope configurations, source coupling and detector options are available enabling both steady state and fluorescence lifetime microscopy, as well as automated maps.

Learn more about the new MicroPL Upgrade.

Variable Pulse Width and High Power Pulsed Laser Diodes

Edinburgh Instruments is delighted to launch a series of pulsed light sources for time-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy. The VPL, VPLED and HPL series of pulsed diode lasers and LEDs expand the range of compact, monochromatic sources on offer, while the AGILE supercontinuum laser provides tunable picosecond pulses across the visible and NIR regions.

Discover the series of pulsed light sources for time-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy.
