Optical Building Blocks (OBB) Is a unit of HORIBA Scientific that designs, produces and markets state-of-the-art, proprietary electro-optical components and instrumentation used in leading institutions around the world for research, Solar, health care, industrial process, quality control, environmental science, and numerous other applications. OBB offers three main product groups of equipment, Optical Components referred to as "Optical Building Blocks", Microscope Accessories, and Bench-Top Instruments.

Optical Components: As the division name implies Optical Building Blocks specializes in a complete line of interconnectable electro-optical components. These products are offered on a component basis, or they can be interconnected to create application specific electro-optical sub systems. The OBB component line consists of high intensity broadband arc lamp illuminators, tunable CW and pulsed illuminators from UV to NIR, nanosecond pulsed tunable lasers from 235 to 990 nm, monochromators, sample compartments, optical choppers and PMT housings.

OBB has an excellent line of specialty illuminators and PMT detectors for microscopy. ScopeLite 200 broadband illuminatorThe very affordable ScopeLite 200 is a $3,800 broadband metal-halide microscope illuminator that offers excellent stability, perfect focus at all times and a lamp that lasts over 2,000 hours.

DeltaRAM-X millisecond switching tunable illuminatorThe DeltaRAM-X is a tunable millisecond switching galvanometer based monochromator illuminator that is ideally suited for quantitative fluorescence live cell imaging. The DeltaRAM-X is available with a variety of drivers for control by third party imaging and spectroscopy software programs.

Tunable PowerArc micro-illuminatorThe tunable PowerArc micro-illuminator is a scanning monochromator illuminator that allows users to directly select any wavelength and bandpass that their microscopy experiment requires

PMT PhotometersOBB’s PMT photometers can detect light from one, two or three different emission wavelengths simultaneously. These photometers are dual functioning analog and photon counting detectors designed for the most demanding low light level fluorescence applications but they are also well suited for quantitative transmission and reflectance measurements.

Bench-Top Fluorometers: OBB offers a complete line of compact integrated bench-top luminescence systems that include acquisition and analysis software. These instruments are so simple, that they require no factory installation.

EasyLife™ family of time-resolved luminescence systems

There are three different EasyLife systems that measure luminescence lifetimes and lifetime-based reaction kinetics from 45 picoseconds to 300 milliseconds. The EasyLife-X starts at only $9,9995 and uses a patented fluorescence lifetime detection technique to measure lifetimes from 100 ps to 4 µs.
