Open air mass analysis

01 July, 2008

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 extractors

07 February, 2008

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.


A new spin on old CDs

01 November, 2007

Scientists in Spain have found a way to recycle CDs, DVDs and disc players as portable substance analysers.

Surface hygiene test

08 March, 2006

Pro-tect is a rapid surface hygiene test, providing a rapid method to monitor whether food contact surfaces have been effectively cleaned.


NMR magnets

16 January, 2006

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.
