Varian has released a family of ultra low bleed capillary columns that detect lower concentrations for more accurate quantification and qualification of trace compounds, boost instrument uptime, and speed instrument stabilisation.
Leica Microsystems has developed accessory modules for its Leica DM LS2 and DM LB2 upright microscopes. Apart from a new finish, the microscopes feature user-friendliness.
The Gallay laboratory glassware washer, Lab 999, can be adapted to suit different laboratory glassware cleaning needs. The Lab 999 has 20 standard and 10 optional programs plus a specialised range of stainless steel accessories to process a wide variety of laboratory glassware.
Fibreoptic Lightguides' range of microscope ring illuminators has been expanded to include a six spot ringlight.
The Luxtron Fluoroptic Thermometry (FOT) Lab Kit allows users to easily and accurately measure temperature in hostile environments involving high voltages, electromagnetic interference (EMI) and strong radio frequencies (RF).
The Nichipet Ex pipettor from Nichiryo is fully autoclavable and has enhanced UV resistance. The unit is lightweight and has fatigue-free operation with an enlarged figure rest. The convenient single hand locking lever makes for easy operation and the range of 8 sizes covers from 0.1 µL to 10 mL.
The Shimadzu BioSpec-mini spectrophotometer comes standard with a spectrum mode allowing for full spectral data acquisition over the wavelength range of 190 to 1100 nm.
Amtex Electronics has introduced the ZUP series of laboratory power supplies. The series includes standard features such as overvoltage/undervoltage settings, last setting memory with automatic or safe restart options, universal input 85-267 VAC, built-in RS-232 and RS-485 interface and a GPIB programming option.
The range of Bibby Anadeo visible spectrophotometers is compact and easy to use. It has a large clear LCD, an intuitive navigation system, and is user-friendly. Users can become familiar with the functions very rapidly, including the programmable memory facility. The precision optics system gives reliable results.
Maldi (matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionisation), a laser-based soft ionisation method, is one of the most successful ionisation methods for mass spectrometric analysis and investigation of large molecules.
The Digilab FTS 7000 is a high performance spectrometer designed to meet the requirements of the spectroscopic researcher. Based on a 2" clear aperture, air-bearing, 60° Michelson interferometer and a high flux water-cooled source, the FTS 7000 can be configured to cover the spectral range from 50,000 to 10 cm-1. It also has a wide range of scan speeds, capable of collecting over 100 spectra per second in rapid scan mode, down to slow step scan speeds for frequency domain or time domain step scan spectroscopy.
Warsash Scientific has released the InVia Reflex fully automated Raman microscope from Renishaw. They add simplicity of operation to the performance and flexibility to Renishaw's high optical efficiency Raman microspectrometer design, with a directly coupled Leica DMLM microscope.
Varian's ICP-MS offers ease of use and high sensitivity with its 90° ion optics. The ion mirror reflects analyte ions through 90°, while neutrals and photons pass through. This produces a very high signal to background ratio for low-level detection limits and features tunable gigahertz sensitivity (one thousand million counts per second for every ppm).
The New Wave Research/Merchantek laser ablation systems feature numerous innovations including flat beam ablation, 213 nm UV ablation and Merchantek laser ablation software.
G&C Instrument Services supplies a range of ICP and ICP-MS glassware suited to many different manufacturers and models. The range includes torches, spray chambers, nebulisers, bonnets, demountable systems and some specialised items.
