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.
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.
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 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.
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.
TA Instruments has the AR 2000 advanced research rheometer with performance and convenience features. A fifth generation product, the AR 2000 can handle demanding applications in mobile and viscous liquids, gels, pastes, slurries and solid and molten polymers.
Wyatt Technology multi-angle laser light scattering instruments enable users to determine absolute molar masses of polymers and biopolymers from below 1000 Daltons to hundreds of millions of Daltons. Wyatt has over 50 application notes available and a dedicated bibliography page on its web site with referenced publications of Wyatt instrument applications.
The Nunc EasY Flask closure system allows users to open or close the flasks by a 1/3 turn of the cap. Once the cap is removed the large aperture and the optimally angled neck allow easy access to the entire growth surface of the flask with both pipettes and cell scrapers.
The Lyolab 3000 laptop freeze dryer features a twin-capillary tube system called Power Dry. The principle reduces the time required to reach operating temperature, at the same time providing an ice tapping capacity in a compact laboratory freeze drying unit.
TSI has two TH-Calc Thermohygrometers for measuring temperature and humidity. Each handheld instrument uses a single probe to measure multiple parameters. The Model 8720 measures temperature and humidity and calculates dew point. The Model 8722 adds data logging and performs wet bulb temperature, absolute humidity, humidity ratio and % outside air calculations.
The Hart Scientific Chub-E4, model 1529 thermometer readout which includes four channels for reading thermocouples, PRTs, or thermistors. Accuracy levels are high enough for laboratory use, while battery power makes the Chub-E4 well suited for field applications.
