The CHEMetrics Sulfate Vacu-vials Test Kit (K-9203) for water analysis features self-filling Vacu-vial ampoules, which the user simply snaps in the sample. The Sulfate Vacu-vials test method employs the barium sulfate method. Sulfate ion reacts with barium chloride in an acidic solution to form a suspension of barium sulfate crystals of uniform size. The resulting turbidity is proportional to the sulfate concentration of the sample and can be read on any spectrophotometer that accepts a 13 mm cell.
Media Cybernetics has released a 3D constructor module for the scientific image analysis software, Image-Pro Plus.
The SampleManager 2002 version of SampleManager incorporates a host of advances that are designed to enable scientists to make more informed decisions based on improved capabilities for analysing, searching, reviewing and reporting laboratory data.
SmartStation seamlessly integrates liquid handling, detection and plate management to provide out-of-the-box automation. This automated workstation provides a highly flexible, integrated solution for assay development, secondary screening and ADME/Tox applications. The EnVision multilabel plate reader, featuring speed and sensitivity, provides SmartStation's detection capability.

Thermo Galactic has released version 7.0 of its spectroscopy data processing software, GRAMS/AI. Version 7.0 provides tools to help laboratories handle data in a way that is compliant with 21 CFR Part 11.
The combined fish and daphnia toximeter from bbe is well suited to the rapid detection of wilful or negligent contamination in water systems. The bbe fish and daphnia toximeter can also be used for the long-term monitoring, and the strategic evaluation of water quality.
The LD 400 Luminescence Detector is a sensitive instrument with a luminescent dynamic range of >8 decades. The LD 400 measures both flash and glow luminescence, and has the added flexibility of performing photometric measurements on the same instrument. It is suitable for most biological and chemiluminescent microplate assays, including dual luciferase, reporter gene, toxicity, ATP, bioMass, ELISAs and protein quantification. The detector also features easy-to-use software for qualitative and quantitative data evaluations, as well as a dual injection dispenser system that allows dispensing in 50 µL increments.
Greiner Labortechnik has a series of tissue culture products coated with growth promoting extra cellular matrix (ECM) proteins. These products consistently improve cell adhesion, differentiation, migration and proliferation of many primary cells as well as cell lines in vitro.
Digene has introduced the HC Express Array Kit, a method for gene expression detection on microarrays that offers previously unattainable levels of accuracy, speed and ease of use. With no labelling or target amplification, all that is needed is 1 µg of total RNA. The system is fast enough to give quantitative data in less than six hours and is reproducible.
