ARL has a family of Sequential XRF Spectrometers, the AdvantXp series which incorporates a universal goniometer and comes in three models (Advant'X, Advant'XP and Advant'XP+).
The Tek Know TC2000 temperature calibrator offers a combination of dry block and bath in the same unit. The design is a system which combines a dry block well with a liquid bath. By changing the insert, the Tek Know TC2000 is transformed from a dry block to a bath. With the TC2000's flexibility users can combine the best features of a dryblock well with a liquid bath on the same calibrator. The TC2000 has a built-in computer that enables the user to easily set up an automatic multipoint calibration system.
Carl Zeiss has two new modules for the AxioVision software that will improve presentations of microscope images.
Testo has developed a 100 Pascal probe, which when used in conjunction with the testo 400 is suitable for testing of cleanroom applications.
The Vista-MPX inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES) is a viable choice for laboratories that could previously only justify buying a sequential ICP system.
The Leica DC200 is a digital imaging system specifically designed for microscopy. The lightweight, compact camera head accepts all c-mount adapters. Digitisation occurs at the camera, minimising noise and allowing the use of a single cable connection to the computer.
TSI Incorporated has a data logging handheld micromanometer that accurately measures pressure, and calculates velocity and flow rate (CFM, m3/h, L/s) from a Pitot tube.
Sorvall Discovery SE ultracentrifuges are warranted for use with Beckman ultra rotors. They offer powerful functionality together with ease of use to make even complicated ultracentrifuge separations simple.
Beckman Coulter has 32 Karat software for its P/ACE MDQ Capillary Electrophoresis (CE) systems. Designed for the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry, this platform will help users comply with FDA regulations such as 21 CFR part 11, concerning electronic data records and signatures. 32 Karat for CE also provides powerful capabilities for analyte identification.
The Evaporative Light Scattering Detector (ELSD) improves HPLC analysis of nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals and excipients. The ELSD is suitable for analysing many different pharmaceutical compounds. It responds to all analytes, whether or not they absorb UV light.
Greiner Labortechnik has a series of tissue culture products coated with growth promoting extra cellular matrix (ECM) proteins.
The STFL2 Stereomicroscope fluorescence attachment can be retrofitted to Nikon Stereomicroscope systems SMZ-U, SMZ800, SMZ-10A and SMZ-10.
FASTS welcomes the announcement by Science Minister Senator Nick Minchin of the appointment of Dr Geoff Garrett as the new Chief Executive Officer of CSIRO.
Ultrafree-MC and -CL Microporous devices provide fast, convenient clarification and purification of 0.5 to 2.0 mL samples and incorporate low binding Durapore membrane.
LabSystems has released SampleManager 2000 which can run on a wide variety of platforms including NT, Unix and OpenVMS. To allow customers to benefit from recent advances in the Oracle database management system, development and internal validation of the SampleManager 2000 server has been based on Oracle version 8.0.5 (a follow-up release of SampleManager based on Oracle 8i is imminent). The SampleManager 2000 client will run on Windows 95, 98, NT and 2000 operating systems.
