Burkert has launched a range of mass flow controllers and meters for a wide range of gaseous applications. The range incorporates pulsewidth modulated solenoid valves and a sensor technology called CMOSens.
The Mag Stir Genie from Scientific Industries is a digital programmable magnetic stirrer which is suitable for both low- and high-speed stirring. The ultra low and lightweight stirrer is easily programmed for either manual or automatic use according to preference.
Bacto Laboratories is the exclusive Australian agent for Dairei's range of refrigerators and low temperature freezers. The Dairei range of low and ultra low temperate freezers features a single compressor system using patented refrigerants. The advantage of this system is that it ensures high performance, reliability, low noise level, low heat dissipation, low energy consumption and a lower initial cost compared with conventional designs. Dairei products are also designed in such a way that any qualified refrigeration technician throughout the world can perform service without the need of any extra training.
The Eppendorf Mastercycler ep is a fast, flexible, user-friendly PCR thermal cycler.
The Smart Orbit diamond attenuated total reflectance (ATR) accessory offers users the many advantages of diamond ATR technology, coupled with the complete instrument integration of the Nicolet FT-IR products. The Smart Orbit uses a real Type IIa diamond for ruggedness and versatility, allowing analysis of challenging samples. Another benefit is access to the entire infrared range, because the accessory is not limited by use of substrate materials or lenses.
Thermoline now offers six models of blood storage refrigerators that comply with Australian Standard 3864-1997. Cabinets feature stainless steel interiors, extra thick polyurethane foam insulation and generously sized refrigeration systems to cope with high ambient conditions.
The GV2003 from GV Instruments is a CO2 and N2 mass spectrometer, providing a safe, rapid and non-invasive breath-testing tool for a number of clinical conditions. The 13C-breath test is Detection of Helicobacter pylori, but this is just one of an increasing range of tests that now includes fat malabsorption, gastric emptying, lactose intolerance, amino acid oxidation, liver function, fatty acid oxidation, intestinal overgrowth and metabolic turnover.
The Camsizer is a robust instrument capable of the simultaneous measurement of particle size distributions and particle shape characteristics. It is suitable for analysing all dry, free-flowing bulk materials, granules and powders in the range 30 µm to 30 mm.
Sanwa offers two lines of solvent degassers to suit most applications. Both lines, the Degasys Ultimate and Degasys Populaire, are available in flow rates of 1, 3 and 10 mL/min max with a choice of between one and 10 channels.
Fullerton, California, December 2003 - Beckman Coulter introduces the Allegra® X-12 Series benchtop centrifuges, delivering unique capabilities that streamline cell separations. The Allegra X-12R and Allegra X-12 spin up to 4 x 750 mL and feature new Cell Culture Flask Adapters* which enable direct centrifugation of cell culture flasks. By eliminating the transfer step to and from conical tubes for cell concentration, these exclusive adapters save time and expense and reduce the potential for contamination.
Agilent Technologies has announced commercialisation of its whole human genome microarray compatible with major 1 x 3" microarray scanners. This microarray benefits scientists researching disease and developing therapeutic interventions in such areas as cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Gonetec has added the Osmomat Auto multiple sampler to its cryosopic range of osmometer units for the determination of osmolality in aqueous solutions.
Thermoline has a shaking thaw bath with a special tray, which is a specialised bath for the rapid and even thawing of frozen bags of plasma products. The units are based on the standard shaking bath but with many inclusions including a revised reciprocating tray and a twelve 500 mL bag rack, raised bath (splash) rim to accommodate deeper water levels and high capacity heating element to maintain the thaw time to twelve minutes (this time is adjustable).
Deep Purple Total Protein Stain is a fluorescent stain for the detection and visualisation of proteins in 1D and 2D gels. The product offers up to eight times more sensitivity in protein detection. Deep Purple gives proteomics customers the ability to detect more proteins with accuracy while eliminating the problem of uneven levels of background fluorescence, known as 'speckling'.
While Version 4 of LabWare LIMS allowed users to associate LabWare LIMS data with information stored in files elsewhere on the network - perhaps graphics images or document files such as SOPs, work instructions, material safety data sheets, worksheets, etc - there was a dependency that all users of the system would have access to the network drives where the external files were located.
