The Dionex CMD-I Carbohydrate Membrane Desalter is a cation-exchange membrane device that removes sodium ions from the eluent stream after oligosaccharide detection.
The Sanyo MCO-20AIC CO2 incubator comes standard with a copper alloy chamber (incu safe). This alloy combined with a constant UV decontamination system eliminates the need to remove samples from the chamber during the sterilisation cycle.
The NEN TSA Microarray Labelling and Detection Kits allow researchers to use as little as 0.5-1.0 µg total RNA starting sample. This is a 100- to 200-fold decrease compared to conventional cDNA labelling protocols, and allows differential gene expression analysis on minute samples such as tissue biopsies. Part of a growing family of Micromax Microarray products, the NEN TSA Labelling and Detection Kits for glass cDNA microarrays are fully QC-tested packages, providing key reagents needed for differential gene expression analysis.
Documentation of microscopic examinations in life science, materials analysis and quality inspection must be reliable and objective. The Axiovision module Autofocus is useful when working with digital cameras, as it automatically focuses on the specimen and leads to razor sharp images every time.
Varian has cryogenic nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) probes for a range of demanding genomics, proteomics and drug discovery and development applications. The probes, cooled using liquid helium, claim a three- to four-fold increase in sensitivity compared to conventional NMR probes. As a result, current experiments can be performed 10-15 times faster, and the scope of compounds that can be analysed is expanded - particularly for those that are available only in minute quantities.
BIA Separations pioneers in monolith separation technologies and manufactures a range of chromatographic and bioconversion supports called Convective Interactive Media.
The Ohaus Adventurer is a versatile, affordable, high-precision balance that offers laboratory users an economical way to perform a variety of functions.
Axioplan 2 imaging MOT is claimed to offer the research and routine microscopist a number of new features. This specifically applies to examinations which are mainly performed using fluorescence techniques, eg, the examination of chromosomes and living cells in genetics and cell biology. The microscope's benefits include its high-speed shutter, the motorised double TV tube, improved operation, and optimised motor control.
Montage Genomics Kits provide all necessary reagents and disposable materials needed to clean up DNA preps and provide high quality DNA suitable for sensitive genetic research applications.
The Horiba's compact LA-300 laser scattering particle size distribution analyser uses a diode laser and measures particles ranging between 0.1 and 600 µm in diameter. It processes high-resolution data for display within 20 sec.
The Omni PCR Tissue Homogenising Kits allow for rapid and complete disruption of cell lysates to expose intracellular contents and increase yields. The PCR tissue homogenising kits offer a choice of autoclavable rotor-stator generator probes in (disposable) plastic and (reusable) stainless steel to suit a wide range of sample preparation applications.
Spectroquant Nova 30/60 Photometers have a diode array design with no moving parts. Barcoded sample vials eliminate the need to select methods and wavelengths manually.
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments has introduced a second UV/Vis spectrophotometer dedicated to bioscience applications. The compact and easy to use BioMini is capable of nucleic acid analysis, protein quantitation, and spectrum measurement. The comprehensive nucleic acid module provides quantitation methods for double and single stranded DNA, RNA and standard Warburg-Christian.
Thermo LabSystems has a full-colour printed case study on the development and implementation of its flagship LIMS product, SampleManager, by its Pathfinder global services group at AstraZeneca's pharmaceutical production sites in Sweden.
The Multi-Clave 10X combines simplicity, high-pressure, agitation, small size and high throughput in a laboratory reactor assembly.
