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.
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.
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.
TaKaRa's BrewSAVE PCR Kit has been designed to detect Hiochi bacteria in brews such as beer and Japanese Sake using polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
Pall Life Sciences' disposable 25 mm Acrodisc unit with Mustang S chromatography membrane is a strong cationic exchange device delivering high dynamic binding capacity and flow rates. Mustang membrane technology offers high capacities for positively charged proteins and large biomolecules. The disposable and stackable chromatography units serve as useful proof of concept tools for validation, process development, and offer direct scale-up to larger gram, and multi-gram Mustang S systems.
The Dalsa Dalstar 1M28-SA area scan camera is suitable for applications such as medical imaging and industrial metrology.
The MilliGascounter is designed for the measurement of small amounts of gas with ultra low flow rates. It is suitable for measuring all inert and slightly aggressive gases, in particular those encountered in biogas technology or in leak rate detection.
The Hanna Instruments HI 98129 and HI 98130 Combo waterproof testers are designed for high accuracy pH, EC/TDS and temperature measurements. All pH and EC/TDS readings are automatically temperature compensated (ATC). The EC/TDS conversion factor is user selectable as well as the temperature compensation co-efficient B. The Combo is waterproof, floating and has a large easy-to-read dual-level LCD and automatic shut off.
LabWare LIMS is now available on the DB2 database platform. This development brings LIMS technology to a business system environment.
The Delta Ohm DO9847K multi-function high accuracy data logger uses SICRAM modules (which allow calibration data of the sensor to be stored in a non-volatile memory) connected to the sensor. Modules are available for RTD, thermocouples (K, J, T, E, R, S, B, N), combined temperature and relative humidity, ±20 V DC, 0-24 mA DC, pyranometers and albedometers (solar radiation measurements).
The HR-US 102 ultrasonic spectrometer is suitable for use in biotechnology and pharmaceutical laboratories, as well as in food, personal care, cosmetics and polymer applications. The HR-US 102 offers fast, high-resolution analysis for small sample volumes.
The PIXImus Densitometer provides bone mineral and body composition results from total body imaging of the mouse in under five minutes. Fast imaging allows use of milder sedation that is safer on animals.
The Falcon 6/300 Refrigerated centrifuge features a choice of two windshielded swing out rotors - the standard aluminium rotor and a high performance rotor.
