The AutoDart provides fast and complete analysis of large numbers of samples for the AccuTOF-Dart, from sources ranging in scale from LC fraction collection tubes, to solids, to aerosol sprayed on sampling tips.
Dietary fibre including cellulose, hemicelluloses, lignin, pectin, rubbers and waxes can be determined by digestion with thermostable enzymes in foods and animal feeds. AOAC International (Official Methods of Analysis) has proposed enzymatic method 985.29.
Scientists in Spain have found a way to recycle CDs, DVDs and disc players as portable substance analysers.
Scil Diagnostics has released the Enzytec range of rapid test kits.
Foss has released a new generation of analysers for routine analysis of wine and grape-must. The analysers are: WineScan Grape for dedicated analysis of grape-must, WineScan Flex for analysis of both grape-must and wine and WineScan Auto for efficient, unattended analysis of wine.
Pro-tect is a rapid surface hygiene test, providing a rapid method to monitor whether food contact surfaces have been effectively cleaned.
Varian has debuted its first shielded vertical high-resolution superconducting magnets designed to reduce stray magnetic fields by up to fivefold (in volume), allowing researchers to save space in pharmaceutical and academic laboratories and making nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) more accessible for routine applications. The 500 and 600 MHz premium shielded magnets are integrated with the company's Varian NMR System and are compatible with its suite of cold and room temperature NMR probes.
Scientists at the University of York, who have developed miniaturised tools for chemical and biological analysis, have won a major injection of growth capital to produce them commercially.
The Thermo Electron LyoCheck solution is a rugged, easy-to-use package that provides a rapid method for the analysis of lyophilised (freeze-dried) materials using the Nicolet Antaris FT-NIR (Fourier transform near-infrared) analyser.
GeoVOC represents a new approach to near-surface geochemical petroleum prospecting. Developed in conjunction with petroleum prospecting companies, GeoVOC uses SIFT-MS to reduce sample analysis time from up to thirty minutes to less than thirty seconds
Rudolph's Autopol Series Polarimeters offer a complete line of polarimeters and accessories including units featuring 21CFR11 compliance, electronic temperature control, sample specific programs and simple process control.
Due to the presence of residual acidic silanol groups in most commercial packings, secondary chromatographic effects are common and are usually troublesome. As a result, efficiency and peak shape for some analytes are usually unacceptable at neutral pH
