The ALPHA is the FT-IR spectrometer for your basic infrared analysis. It enables quick, easy and reliable FT-IR analysis.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has been awarded a US Patent on Spectrometric Data Cleansing. This patent describes a method for filtering artefacts from Raman spectra and is of particular use in removing the distorted data points generated by cosmic ray interference. Elimination of spectral artefacts facilitates automated analysis by such methods as reference library searches and correlation with standard spectra.
Australia has long been known for developing leading-edge scientific instrumentation and this reputation is set to continue with the development of an impedance spectrometer that is up to 1000 times more accurate than its competitors
Glass Expansion has released a range of PTFE spray chambers for ICP-OES. The design is based on the established Tracey glass cyclonic spray chamber which is known for its sensitivity and precision, and fast washout. The pure PTFE (teflon) material reduces the likelihood of contamination. It is also totally inert, enabling the new spray chamber to be used with all common ICP solutions, including those containing HF.
Thermo Electron has announced that its series of x-ray fluorescence (XRF) and x-ray powder diffraction (XRD) spectrometers is suitable for a diverse range of environmental applications.
The Unity Scientific SpectraStar 2400 series scanning NI analyser features fast, accurate analysis of agricultural, food, tobacco, pharmaceutical and industrial samples.
The domnick hunter range of nitrogen generators has been designed to reduce ongoing gas costs for analytical instruments.
New Objective has released an LCMS source: the PicoView 500 series. Designed to fit the Finnigan series of ion trap mass spectrometers and optimised for low flow rate operation the sources provide optimum sensitivity for peptide and protein analysis.
The NanoDrop ND-3300 Fluorospectrometer enables accurate analyses of fluorescent samples across the wavelength range 400 to 900 nm, without filter changes. Excitation occurs from one of three LED sources: UV, blue or white. Light is emitted at a 90° angle and is then measured using a CCD detector.
The Foss InfraXact Pro is a near infrared (NIR) analyser for routine analysis of food and agricultural products directly at the production line.
MathWorks has released the Bioinformatics Toolbox 2.0 for Matlab.
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments has introduced the LCMS-IT-TOF liquid chromatograph/mass spectrometer, a novel hybrid mass spectrometer for biomarker discovery, metabolite identification and proteomics research.
Axios is a range of PANalytical WDXRF (wavelength dispersive x-ray fluorescence) spectrometers with applications and capabilities tailored to meet the needs of specific industries including manufacturing, mining, research, geology and environmental technology. Axios is robust - built to work in unforgiving, on-site industrial conditions so analytical performance is unaffected by heat and dust.
The Finnigan LTQ FT mass spectrometer combines advanced ion trap and Fourier Transform ICR technologies making high resolution, accurate mass determinations and MSn available for high throughput analysis on a single instrument. Experiments claim to have shown that the structure and comparison of compounds can be determined with ten times better mass accuracy than other available methods.
A University at Buffalo chemist has developed a new, high-throughput method for obtaining nuclear magnetic resonance data that can potentially performing orders of magnitude faster than conventional methods
