Complimentary to our wide range of in-house microscopy and macroscopy products we also have an experienced team of scientists offering turnkey systems and solutions. All of the team are actively involved in either product development, or their own biological research (or both!), which we hope keeps us close to both the technology and to interesting biology. A typical system will comprise of Cairn and other third-party equipment integrated onto a research microscope frame, complete with camera, PC and software. Our strength lies in our independence, flexibility and our understanding of how best to make use of today’s technology to answer your research questions.

We always take a long-term view and will work with your group to best configure and support the equipment to suit your changing experimental needs. To this end the systems are highly modular and can be expanded on or reconfigured with minimal redundancy. These pages cover some typical applications and configurations, but if you can’t find exactly what you need then please don’t hesitate to contact us at sales@cairn-research.co.uk / tech@cairn-research.co.uk, or refer to our Custom Design pages for more unusual requests!
