NewsThe US company CVI has supplied most of the optics used in RESOlution laser ablation instruments. In December 2023 they have changed how they sell their optics, and have taken their online catalogue offline. There are also changes to their production runs, and purchasing a single element is no longer as straight forward as it once once. To find out if you can make your purchase, email their sales team (contact details on their laser optics page) and see what they say. We are doing all we can to get parts to users, please shoot us an email to see if we can help. (Dec 2023)
