Scientifica Tiltable Objective Mount+ (TOM+) for in vivo two-photon imaging

11 July, 2024 | Supplied by: SciTech Pty Ltd

The Tiltable Objective Mount+ (TOM+) offers two axes of rotation, allowing for imaging from any angle whilst providing a huge field of view with high resolution across the entire image.

World's 'most accurate and precise' atomic clock developed

10 July, 2024

The new clock is so precise that it can detect tiny effects predicted by theories such as general relativity, even at the microscopic scale.

Some landfill 'burps' found to contain airborne PFAS

09 July, 2024

Many municipal landfills 'burp' gas from decomposing organic matter — and burps from buried waste containing PFAS can release these chemicals.

Scanning electron microscopy suitable for asbestos testing

05 July, 2024

Scanning electron microscopy offers a less expensive, easier-to-use alternative to transmission electron microscopy and phase contrast microscopy.

YMC CHIRAL ART separation HPLC columns

04 July, 2024 | Supplied by: Sapphire Bioscience

The columns are suitable for the separation of a wide range of chiral compounds, cis-trans isomers and geometric isomers.

Scientists can now detect antibiotics in finger sweat

01 July, 2024

A fingerprint may soon be all a doctor needs to check whether tuberculosis patients are taking their antibiotics, with scientists detecting the drugs in finger sweat.

UV disinfection lights can produce pollutants in the air

24 June, 2024

Air sanitisers that use ultraviolet (UV) light to kill pathogens can also cause unintended chemical reactions in the air, producing pollutants that could be a health risk.

Measuring microplastics in soil using spectroscopy

21 June, 2024

Japanese researchers have devised a novel and simple method to measure nano/microplastic (N/MP) concentrations in different soil types using spectroscopy at two wavelengths.

Hach QBD1200+ laboratory TOC analyser

14 June, 2024 | Supplied by: Hach Pacific Pty Ltd

The Hach QBD1200+ is a laboratory TOC analyser that supports a wide range of TOC measurements — from ultrapure and pharmaceutical water to cleaning validation.

Microplastic monitoring using porous materials

13 June, 2024

A new system uses inexpensive, porous metal foam to capture microplastics from solution and detect them optically using surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS).

ePrep ONE chromatography sample preparation workstation

13 June, 2024 | Supplied by: ePrep Pty Ltd

The ePrep ONE is a chromatography sample preparation station that uses analytical syringes, rather than pipettes, to carefully prepare samples for analysis.

Lambert Instruments High-speed Intensified Camera Attachment (HiCATT)

12 June, 2024 | Supplied by: SciTech Pty Ltd

The HiCATT is designed for use with any high-speed camera. It increases the sensitivity of a camera and enables low-light imaging at frame rates up to 1 MHz (10 MHz in burst).

Soft X-rays observe carbon-based structures in living cells

12 June, 2024

Researchers have used a soft X-ray free electron laser to capture images of carbon-based structures in living cells, which have not been seen before with other instruments.

Waters Xevo MRT mass spectrometer

07 June, 2024 | Supplied by: Waters Australia Pty Ltd

The system combines multi-reflecting time-of-flight and hybrid quadrupole time-of-flight technologies within a flexible benchtop platform.

A golden key unlocks faster, sharper X-ray imaging

07 June, 2024

Scientists have used a layer of gold to improve the sharpness of X-ray imaging and potentially boost the speeds at which X-ray scans can be processed.
