The Labtech Essa Scientific Test Sieve range has been extended to reflect the greater requirements made in the new standard DIN ISO 3310 for particle size analysis. In order to adapt their test sieves to these requirements Labtech Essa is accessing a consistency in sieve production. In addition, a logistic manufacturing system makes it possible to record each material used in the process.
Membrane filters are micro-porous plastic films with specific pore size ratings. Membranes retain particles or microorganisms larger than their pore size primarily by surface capture.
The quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation (QCM-D) sensor measures the mass of thin films and simultaneously provides information about their structure.
Immunogold labelling is a method for localising a wide range of cellular molecules.
Beckman Coulter has announced CEQ 8800 software v.9 providing new tools for genetic data analysis.
The RC-200 solvent recycler works automatically with any isocratic system to recover and recycle up to 95% of the mobile phase typically shunted to waste.
GasAlarm Systems has introduced the MSR PolyGard standalone gas alarm controller, with the option of integral gas sensor or remote gas sensor.
The CFW-1310C is a high-resolution single chip colour digital camera that interfaces with both desktop and notebook computers through the IEEE 1394 or FireWire interface.
The Grabner Miniflash is a series of instruments for the automatic determination of the flashpoint of liquids and solid samples according to the advanced ASTM D6450 standard. This procedure describes the 'Standard Test Method for Flash-Point by Continuously Closed Cup (CCCFP)', which offers high repeatability and reproducibility. Test results are equivalent to other standards such as Abel and TAG, and thanks to its design Miniflash can be used for more difficult applications.
Corning Life Sciences has added 96 and 384 well expanded volume microplates for high sample capacity with V-bottom design for full recovery of well contents.
Linkam Scientific Instruments has developed the Incubatrix 35, the entry level stage in the range of cell biology microscope stage chambers. The sample temperature is accurately controlled to 0.1°C by feedback from a Pt100 sensor placed in the sample solution within the Petri dish. The sensor is encased in a thin non-reactive ceramic sheath and can easily be disconnected and sterilised in an autoclave. Sample temperature is maintained by warm air generated from a small heater within the stage.
Hanna Instruments has introduced the C125 portable limpidity meter for rose and white wine.
The MetaMizer is an on-site processor that simultaneously sterilises and granulates clinical waste, converting it to unrecognisable granules.
OpTest has joined with IDM, for just over 11 months to showcase the HiRes fibre quality analyser. OpTest is a Canadian-based company specialising in image analysis.
FoodExpert-ID is a high-density DNA chip for food and animal feed testing. The FoodExpert-ID test, powered by Affymetrix GeneChip technology, will make it possible to verify the animal species composition and the authenticity of raw or processed food and animal feed.
