Open Labware - Laboratory systems from the 3D printer

Dear Sir or Madam,

The cliché of the elitist scientist in the proverbial ivory tower is persistent. But in recent years, there has been a completely different trend in the natural sciences: Open Labs. These are freely accessible online projects and research results that can be used and further developed by everyone. Is this the breakthrough to a more democratic and successful science? Read more about this in our current interview.

I wish you a good start to the weekend!

High-Definition Micro Objectives for 1/6” and 1/10” Sensors

Qioptiq's FALCON Series (for 1/10") and EAGLE Series (for 1/6”) offer fields-of-view of 90°, 110° or 140°. Only 5mm long, they feature a 5-element design with an integrated infrared-absorbing filter and lithographic aperture. High MTF (135 lp/mm) minimizes vignetting and ensures uniform illumination.

A microsensor that is implanted in the eye is designed to enable glaucoma patients to measure their intraocular pressure at any time with the help of an external handheld device. The sensor is meant to assist the patients in accurately dosing their medication. The Cicor Group has developed a component of this sensor, a collapsible gold plated coil.
