Seikagaku Corporation's Fungitec G Test is a highly sensitive enzymatic method for detection and quantification of (1-3)-b-glucan in the cell wall of fungi. Samples could include plasma and serum from patients with suspected invasive mycosis. The kit is designed as an end-point colourimetric assay and comes with all necessary reagents including a pretreatment set to limit interference and a b-glucan standard.
Man-Tech PC-Titration Plus systems combine automated titration and ion analysis in a single unit.
The Liquid Handling Compendium is a 74-page brochure which provides a comprehensive insight into liquid handling, pipetting and dispensing.
The Photovac family of analytical instruments, including the Photovac 2020 PID, the MicroFID, and the Voyager portable gas chromatograph (GC), offers superior detection, monitoring, and identification of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). In addition, the Photovac family of instrumentation is easy to use, contains powerful integrated data logging software, and is humidity-compensated.
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 EC215 bench conductivity meter measures over an extensive range from deionised water to brine.
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.
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.
Carl Zeiss has two new modules for the AxioVision software that will improve presentations of microscope images.
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.
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.
Testo has developed a 100 Pascal probe, which when used in conjunction with the testo 400 is suitable for testing of cleanroom applications.
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.
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.
