Roche Diagnostics has launched the Roche Cardiac proBNP test, a cardiac test for heart failure diagnosis and disease management that provides quick results on the spot. It supports rapid treatment decisions.
The Gilson GX-281 Liquid Handler brings flexibility and performance to front-end automation in the laboratory. The GX-281 is specifically designed for semipreparative-to-preparative HPLC applications.
ACOHS has released Labsafe - a web-based program designed for testing the occupational health and safety knowledge of staff and students.
The Stain Expert is a web-based application specifically developed to assist users with the retrieval of stain and dye information.
The Morphologi G2 high sensitivity particle image analyser uses digital image analysis and automated microscopy to measure both particle size and particle shape.
Camozzi Pneumatics has released an emergency breakdown kit for pneumatic applications. It is portable to allow running repairs on most air applications at short notice.
New Objective has released an LCMS source: the PicoView 500 series. Designed to fit the Finnigan series of ion trap mass spectrometers and optimised for low flow rate operation the sources provide optimum sensitivity for peptide and protein analysis.
Infectious Awareables has a range of silk ties and scarves whose designs are based on actual photomicrographs of microorganisms.
Eppendorf has introduced three microcentrifuges, models 5418, 5424 and 5430, which have been designed to reduce operational noises, maximise potential operational speeds and offer intuitive operational panels.
The Varioklav 65T Steam Steriliser from H+P has a deep square chamber so the total usable capacity is increased over the conventional round chamber design. The 65T can hold up to 18 x 1 L round laboratory flasks at one time. On top of this, the bench design allows smarter use of space.
The Molecular Devices SpectraMax M5 is a five mode microplate reader with three mode cuvette port. It is a dual-monochromator, multi-detection microplate reader which features a triple-mode cuvette port and single-read command capability for experiments requiring multiple detection parameters. Using two scanning monochromators, the system also provides users with the flexibility to choose any wavelength between 200 and 1000 nm. The instrument uses standard microplates (6 to 384 well) to read endpoint, kinetic, spectrum, multi-wavelength and well area scanning.
Centrifugal Partition Chromatography (CPC) is a separation method based on the liquid partitioning of compounds.
The StatSpin Express 3 primary tube centrifuge can spin up to 8 x 10 mL tubes to provide high quality plasma or serum in two minutes.
The Elma Ultrasonics S ultrasonic cleaning baths range features: drainage taps and outlets on most models; engineered basket handles to reduce contact with cleaning solutions; solid basket sides to prevent item damage and improve safety; plastic cover to reduce noise; set cleaning period and remaining cleaning time are both indicated; degas feature - removing gas from cleaning solutions; sweep feature - homogenous sound field distribution; auto safety switch off after 12 h; carry handles on most models; lid can be used as a basket drip tray; cleaning tanks made of cavitation-resistant high quality stainless steel; optional heating 30-80°C in 5°C steps; and, heating - set and actual temperature displayed.
Anton Paar now offers an instrument for microwave-assisted organic synthesis. The Synthos 3000 is specially designed for the production of chemical compounds in the multigram range.
