Enotech is a random access analyser for automatic, multiparameter analysis for enzymatic and colorimetrical tests for process control of vinification as well as the quality of the end product. Parameters that can easily be automated include glucose/fructose, malic acid, acetic acid, free and total SO2, copper, amino nitrogen and ammonia nitrogen as well as many more.
The JPK NanoWizard II Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) represents the latest in AFM technology for life sciences. It is designed to maximise stability, performance and ease of handling with samples in fluid and for full integration with optical microscopy.
Tucsen Digital Imaging Technology specialises in the practical application of high-performance digital cameras. The company, which manufactures C mount USB2.0 cameras for microscopy, has announced three new cameras.
The Series 2000 near infrared transmission analyser is a diode array spectrometer that uses a selection of sample cells to collect near infrared transmission spectra through liquid, suspensions and emulsions, such as lotions and creams. The Series 2000 scans the wavelength range from 720-1100 nm in transmission and transflectance modes. Organic molecules containing O-H, C-H and N-H bonds exhibit strong NIR absorbance bands within this region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Stadvis has signed a worldwide licence to commercialise an automated technique developed by the CSIRO Food Futures National Research Flagship to measure glycaemic index (GI) and resistant starch (RS) in foods and cereals.
Varian has released the 225-MS benchtop GC/MS (gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer). The 225-MS ion trap encloses all of its components, including the foreline vacuum pump, in one compact design. Intended for use in high-throughput laboratories for applications ranging from environmental analyses to product safety, the 225-MS addresses the issue of space limitations while offering improved performance at the same time.
Rigaku Americas is working with the Joint Center for Structural Genomics (JCSG) on an automated ultraviolet (UV) imaging and protein crystal monitoring system to accelerate identification of crystals to be harvested for X-ray crystallographic structure determination.
Asylum Research and the Natural History Museum of London have announced that the museum’s mineralogy department has acquired Asylum’s MFP-3D Stand Alone Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) to expand on their range of research tools to study nanomaterials.
Leica TCS LSI is a super zoom 3D-confocal microscope, offering high resolution plus large field of view for in vivo imaging. The Large Scale Imaging (LSI) platform provides generous workspace and adapts to the experiment needs of native specimen analysis.
