Thermo LabSystems has announced that Analytical Quality Control (AQC) functionality is now available as part of the latest version of its Nautilus LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System).
The Setaflash Series 3 flash point tester has been designed for rapid testing and spot checks for most user applications. Checking flash point is important during inspection and analysis of many products. For example, in the classification of potentially hazardous substances where storage, transport and disposal charges are based on flammability and where incorrect classification can lead to significant added costs.
The Captair range of ductless recirculating fume cabinets is suitable when the installation of a fully ducted system is difficult or uneconomical within an existing work environment. Duct route, exhaust location or existing walls can make a ducted system too expensive and complicated.
The Hughes Cupola decon 2 Rapid Decontamination Shelter (RDS) is an inflatable portable decontamination unit that can be deployed in minutes for mass decontamination of the public or emergency services. The unit is fully self-contained and can cope with walking or stretchered casualties requiring decontamination.
BD Diagnostic Systems has developed and incorporated a filtration process improvement to reduce the presence of artifacts when using Difco-BBL Gram Stains.
The Smart Cycler System from Cepheid is a versatile and efficient thermal cycler with precise real-time optical detection.
Varian has released a sensitive quadrupole ICP-MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma - Mass Spectrometry) instrument designed to achieve gigahertz sensitivity (1000 million counts per second per ppm of analyte) while delivering improved performance across other criteria. Sensitivity is a key factor in detection limits, and with environmental and other regulations calling for increasingly lower detection limits, ICP-MS is becoming the analysis tool of choice in a number of industries.
Microdialysis monitors the chemistry of individual tissues by mimicking a blood capillary. Using a CMA Microdialysis probe filled with perfusion fluid, chemical substances are transported to and from the tissues through a dialysis membrane attached to a catheter. Depending on the substance, this can reflect either local (eg, glycerol) or systemic (eg, glucose) metabolism.
Edwards Instrument Co manufactures 0.2 mL PCR tubes with attached, individual caps. The tubes have smooth internal walls to prevent sample hang-up. The polypropylene tubes feature thin walls with domed caps and come in strips of eight.
Thermoline has six models of blood storage refrigerators that comply with Australian Standard 3864-1997.
LabWare Web LIMS fully embraces the web paradigm without requiring customers, using the existing client/server LIMS product, to make any configuration changes. Users have the choice of interacting with the LIMS either via the Web LIMS, or the client/server LIMS, or a combination of both using exactly the same LIMS configuration.
The Solaar S Series atomic absorption spectrometers offer no compromise, budget-conscious, single atomiser analysis with high levels of multi-element productivity. The footprint of the instrument is less than 0.35 m2. It is simple to use with a comprehensive Windows wizard-driven user interface and an optional quarter VGA local control. An Ebert monochromator-based optical system, with Stockdale double beam optics, provides superior detection capability.
The Allegra X-22 Series benchtop centrifuges are multi-purpose instruments that provide a space-saving solution for smaller laboratories. A diverse line of 11 rotors and 18 adapters provides flexibility for a range of applications.
The Helios Mini compact meteorological data logger system from Skye Instruments contains accurate meteorological specification sensors with a data logging system in a compact weatherproof housing, sealed to IP65. The Helios Mini is a 4 channel dedicated logging system, with a choice of sensors: relative humidity, air or soil temperature, a self-emptying rain gauge or a surface wetness (dew) sensor.
The Q400 and Q400EM Thermal Mechanical Analyser (TMA) measures sample dimension changes as a function of temperature, time, force (stress) and atmosphere.
