Linkam Launches Enhancements to HFS Probe Stage

Expert in sample characterisation, Linkam Scientific Instruments, has unveiled its enhanced HFS600E-PB4 probe stage for use in micro-sized electrical component temperature control applications.

The new design was implemented in partnership with Linkam’s customer, Radiant Technologies, a major player in the design and manufacture of testing equipment for electrical systems. The combination of Linkam’s HFS600E-PB4 stage with Radiant test platforms has benefited Radiant’s customers for a number of years, allowing them to carry out analysis of macro-scaled electronic components including ferroelectric and piezoelectric materials across a temperature range from < -195 to 600 °C.

Temperature-controlled measurements are helping scientists make better electrical insulators

Perovskites are a class of materials with great promise in electronics, thanks to their wide array of tuneable dielectric* (insulator)  properties. However, these properties hinge on the presence or absence of inherent structural defects and impurities, as well as on environmental conditions such as temperature. Understanding these influences is critical for developing better-performing electronic components. Here is a summary of how temperature-controlled analysis can be used to bring out these properties.

Investigating the properties of meat alternatives and the sensory experience

Currently around 14% of UK adults (7.2 million) are following a meat-free diet, with 8.8 million pledging to go meat-free in 2022. Combined with the increasing popularity of the flexitarian diet – a portmanteau of vegetarian and flexible, consumption of meat alternatives is rising. The pressure for meat alternatives to fulfil the expectations of former meat eaters has increased.

Cryomicroscopy: The coolest technique in pharma research

In the last two decades, cryomicroscopy methods have become widespread and effective tools used by life scientists, pharmaceutical researchers, and more, to examine biological structures close to their native state.1 The capabilities of cryomicroscopy to visualize the structure of biological molecules, such as proteins and protein complexes, make a valuable addition to existing methods such as X-ray crystallography and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). Determining the structure of proteins and protein complexes, which are of particular interest as drug targets and are the subject of investigation to gain a deeper understanding of disease mechanisms, is an important element of drug discovery.

在过去的二十年中,冷冻显微镜方法已经成为生命科学家、制药研究人员等广泛使用的有效工具,用于检查接近其原生状态的生物结构1。冷冻显微镜能够可视化蛋白质和蛋白质复合物等物质的生物分子结构,是对现有的方法如x射线晶体学和核磁共振(NMR)等的有价值的补充。确定蛋白质和蛋白质复合物的结构是药物发现的一个重要部分,这对研究药物靶点非常有意义,也是深入了解疾病机制的重要课题,。

The Importance of Temperature Control in Pharmaceutical Analysis

In many areas of the pharmaceutical industry, it is becoming increasingly important to understand the micro- and thermo-mechanical properties of a substance. Temperature-controlled microscopy covers a wide range of analytical techniques, including methods that involve combining traditional thermo-analytical methods, such as differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and image analysis techniques, such as thermal analysis by structural characterisation (TASC), to characterise pharmaceuticals and their component materials.
