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.
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.
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.
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 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.
The Horiba LB-500 Dynamic Light Scattering Particle Size Distribution Analyser is designed for nanoparticulate materials that are otherwise difficult to measure using conventional types of analysers.
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.
The Eppendorf Standard Micro Test Tube 3810X has improved lid geometry. Opening and closing tubes is a lot easier, with the optimised lid hinge giving better positioning for sealing and enabling the entire lid surface to be closed evenly. Handling convenience is boosted by the specially developed slanting tube lip, which offers a larger surface for opening and closing.
Penny & Giles Computer Products has a range of 50 mm diameter trackerballs aimed at demanding applications like the industrial, medical and military markets. The trackerballs incorporate a design using PTFE coatings with the end result being a very smooth seal without the 'stickiness' normally associated with dustproof trackerball designs.
