Centrifugal Partition Chromatography (CPC) is a separation method based on the liquid partitioning of compounds.
The Elma Ultrasonics S ultrasonic cleaning baths range features: drainage taps and outlets on most models; engineered basket handles to reduce contact with cleaning solutions; solid basket sides to prevent item damage and improve safety; plastic cover to reduce noise; set cleaning period and remaining cleaning time are both indicated; degas feature - removing gas from cleaning solutions; sweep feature - homogenous sound field distribution; auto safety switch off after 12 h; carry handles on most models; lid can be used as a basket drip tray; cleaning tanks made of cavitation-resistant high quality stainless steel; optional heating 30-80°C in 5°C steps; and, heating - set and actual temperature displayed.
The Varioklav 65T Steam Steriliser from H+P has a deep square chamber so the total usable capacity is increased over the conventional round chamber design. The 65T can hold up to 18 x 1 L round laboratory flasks at one time. On top of this, the bench design allows smarter use of space.
Eppendorf has introduced three microcentrifuges, models 5418, 5424 and 5430, which have been designed to reduce operational noises, maximise potential operational speeds and offer intuitive operational panels.
The StatSpin Express 3 primary tube centrifuge can spin up to 8 x 10 mL tubes to provide high quality plasma or serum in two minutes.
Infectious Awareables has a range of silk ties and scarves whose designs are based on actual photomicrographs of microorganisms.
Anton Paar now offers an instrument for microwave-assisted organic synthesis. The Synthos 3000 is specially designed for the production of chemical compounds in the multigram range.
Researchers will experience fast filtration flow rates with Nalgene MF75 Filter Units and Bottle Top Filters, which incorporate the sterilisation-grade Pall Supor machV membrane. The membranes are composed of polyethersulfone (PES), the same material used for processing biological and pharmaceutical samples for drug discovery and basic research.
VSN International, developer of the GenStat statistical system, has launched a free version of its commercial software available to non-commercial users and not-for-profit organisations in developing world countries. GenStat for Windows Discovery Edition is available for immediate download from www.discovery.genstat.co.uk
The NanoDrop ND-3300 Fluorospectrometer enables accurate analyses of fluorescent samples across the wavelength range 400 to 900 nm, without filter changes. Excitation occurs from one of three LED sources: UV, blue or white. Light is emitted at a 90° angle and is then measured using a CCD detector.
Dade Behring has received 510K clearance for the Emit II Plus Ecstasy Assay. The assay screens urine for the following illegal substances: methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA, or Ecstasy), methylenedioxyethylamphetamine (MDEA) and methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA). It complies with proposed SAMSHA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) and European regulations and has approved applications for use on the Olympus AU400/AU600/AU2700/AU5400 systems and the Syva 30R Analyser.
The Beecher Instruments ATA-27 automated tissue arrayer makes construction of high-density tissue microarrays fast, accurate and reliable. The instrument can accommodate nearly all current tissue cassettes and can be easily adapted to array large or odd-shaped specimens.
Tecan Systems has launched the Cavro XLP 6000, a versatile high performance syringe pump. The pump is designed for precision liquid handling applications in the 5 µL to 25 mL range and is suitable for clinical diagnostics, life science research and analytical applications.
Membrane filters are specially tested for microbiology. 0.45 µm white gridded membranes are tested for coliform, faecal streptococci and serratia marcescens. All 0.65 µm white gridded membranes are tested for complete retention and optimal recovery of faecal coliform and saccharomyces cerevisieae.
The Ixon DV885 is the latest addition to the Andor family of EMCCD (electron multiplying) cameras. The Ixon camera features high sensitivity, which makes it suitable for live cell imaging applications.
