Micromeritics maintains its scientific commitment to innovation in the area of gas adsorption technologies by introducing a series of six new NLDFT models. Four models provide researchers with additional options for characterising single-wall or multi-wall carbon nanotubes.
The Micromeritics ChemiSorb series analysers combine the ability to perform both physical adsorption and chemisorption measurements in an upgradeable system.
A NIST research group has developed TGA instrumentation capable of handling sample sizes an order of magnitude less than current commercial instruments.
A Tel Aviv University researcher has pioneered the development of a swift, small, highly reliable sensor that is claimed to be able to detect explosives more reliably than trained sniffer dogs.
To keep soldiers in the battlefield healthy, the US Army is exploring new ways to detect harmful bacteria in water.
Dyes have many applications in the food and beverage industries. Only a few have been approved for use in foods and beverages. Reversed-phase chromatography is a suitable technique for the analysis of dyes. Many dyes are hydrophobic, readily soluble in reversed-phase eluents and have strong visible and UV absorbance properties.
Reversed-phase HPLC is a technique well suited to vitamin analysis. In Application Note 251 (AN 251), integrated and efficient methods for determining water- and fat-soluble vitamins in nutritional supplements were developed. Efficient and simple methods for the extraction and determination of the water- and fat-soluble vitamins were established and the separations were performed on the Dionex UltiMate HPLC system with Acclaim columns.
NIR Technology Systems has been renamed Next Instruments and expanded its product portfolio. In addition to its range of near infrared analysers, the company now offers a broader range of innovative analytical and process instruments for the food, agriculture and nutrition industries.
A two-in-one test that can simultaneously detect both the E. coli bacteria responsible for food poisoning outbreaks and the toxins that the bacteria use to cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and other symptoms in its victims has been developed.
A new method for determining the age of ancient mummies, old artwork and other relics which does not cause damage to these treasures of global cultural heritage has been developed.
The Nordlund Centre for Biomedical Structural Biology at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore has purchased Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Maybridge Ro3 500 fragment library to support the establishment of a fragment screening-based drug discovery platform.
Palintest has developed a new method for testing chlorine dioxide levels in water. The ChlordioXense provides accurate testing without relying on subjective analysis for results. The instrument eliminates the potential for user error giving precise, consistent results whatever the operator’s level of experience.
Ahura Scientific’s TruScreen, suitable for the commercial aviation industry and designed to complement existing security measures, rapidly and accurately screens for potential liquid explosives, quickly distinguishing between benign substances and threat-listed materials, such as explosives and precursors.
Advances in technology are making Kjeldahl analysis safer and more efficient as users at the Viking Malt laboratory in Halmstad, Sweden, have discovered.
The AutoTrace 280 system is an automated solid phase extraction (SPE) instrument designed to be used with large volume (20 mL - 4 L) samples for the isolation of trace organics in water or aqueous matrices.
