HARPENDEN, England, Sept. 9, 2010 — Mad City Labs Inc. announced recently the appointment of Elliot Scientific Ltd. as the distributor of its products within the UK and Ireland.

The manufacturer of flexure-based nanopositioning systems capable of subnanometer positioning resolution’s product line now offered by Elliot Scientific covers the entire spectrum of nanopositioning, with single axis, multi-axis and stages with rotation/tilt for a variety of uses. Applications include adaptive optics, ultra high vacuum use and micropositioning systems designed to fit most current microscopes.

Combining long range motion with linearity, orthogonality and stability, Mad City Labs’ systems provide innovative and practical control solutions for demanding biological and nanotechnology applications. These include superresolution microscopy, high-speed confocal imaging, fiber positioning and high-resolution optical alignment, single-molecule spectroscopy and particle tracking and atomic force microscopy, among others.

The partnership is anticipated to strengthen the company’s product line-up, and it pushes it toward being a premier supplier to the UK’s nanotechnology, biophysics and life sciences communities, said the company.

GLOSSARY
adaptive optics
Optical components or assemblies whose performance is monitored and controlled so as to compensate for aberrations, static or dynamic perturbations such as thermal, mechanical and acoustical disturbances, or to adapt to changing conditions, needs or missions. The most familiar example is the "rubber mirror,'' whose surface shape, and thus reflective qualities, can be controlled by electromechanical means. See also active optics; phase conjugation.
axis
A straight line, real or imaginary, passing through a body and indicating its center; a line so positioned that various portions of an object are located symmetrically in relation to the line. See also optical axis.
linearity
A relationship between two variables so that when plotted on a graph they yield a straight line.
microscope
An instrument consisting essentially of a tube 160 mm long, with an objective lens at the distant end and an eyepiece at the near end. The objective forms a real aerial image of the object in the focal plane of the eyepiece where it is observed by the eye. The overall magnifying power is equal to the linear magnification of the objective multiplied by the magnifying power of the eyepiece. The eyepiece can be replaced by a film to photograph the primary image, or a positive or negative relay...
