As NASA's Curiosity mission searches for various minerals on Mars, in the hope of finding evidence of ancient habitable environments, British scientists have found that one such mineral (jarosite) breaks down organic compounds when it is flash-heated.
Alicat Scientific has expanded its Gas Select firmware to include a library of up to 130 preloaded gases, referenced to NIST Prop 9 and a utility for defining mixed gas compositions.
Peak Scientific's Precision range of gas generators offers a modular system providing a GC gas solution specific to the user's laboratory needs. Its stackable, space-saving design allows users to make the most of their valuable lab space.
Nessco Pressure Systems (NPS) has upgraded two Hydratron Pressure Relief Valve Test Benches in order to comply with the stringent safety standards of the WA gas fields.
German biotechnology company ibidi has revealed a device that optically measures the exact oxygen content directly in cells and tissues. The ibidi OPAL Optical O2 Measurement System determines the correct O2 content, which is a critical factor in maintaining the natural behaviour of cells in culture.
The Quadrasorb evo Gas Sorption Surface Area and Pore Size Analyzer has been designed for flexibility, performance, accuracy and modularity. The standard evo version provides fast and accurate BET surface area measurements.
Researchers at the University of Adelaide have developed a laser with 25 times more light emission than other lasers operating at a similar wavelength.
PAC has released the latest edition of its multidimensional gas chromatography analyser for fast group type analysis of gasoline and gasoline blend streams - the AC Reformulyser M4.
To better understand levels of fixed gases, CDS has designed an add-on feature to its trapping pyrolysers. By adding a small GC and TC detector to the outlet of the analytical trap, the user will be capable of analysing the fixed gases that are normally purged from the system before analysing pyrolysates from a sample.
The OdourScan Model 2000 Electronic Nose has been developed to provide the food industry with a rapid means of detecting and quantifying odours and smells.
An organic fertiliser manufacturer has selected Michell Instruments’ XZR500 to monitor oxygen levels in its composting process. The innovative process dramatically reduces the time taken to break down animal dung into a useable form and the XZR500 forms part of the control system.
Restek’s redesigned leak detector is an important tool for the troubleshooting and routine maintenance of gas chromatographs. By checking for leaks often, the GC column and instrument will be protected from damage and loss of sensitivity.
Michell Instruments has developed a transportable version of its hydrocarbon dewpoint analyser, the Condumax II. The latest version enables engineers to provide a fast response for investigations into the quality of natural gas wherever it is needed.
Industrial Scientific has introduced the Tango TX1 single gas monitor that detects carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide.
The Micromeritics 3Flex Surface Characterization Analyzer is a fully automated three-station mesopore-, micropore- or physisorption-ready instrument, including kypton capability for low surface area materials.
