Digital multifunction instrument

08 April, 2008 | Supplied by: Veederline Pty Ltd

The Rish Master 3430 measures electrical parameters in three-phase and single-phase networks replacing the multiple analog panel meters


High-definition MS system

06 March, 2008 | Supplied by: Waters Australia Pty Ltd

As a tool, conventional mass spectrometry is a good method for differentiating between proteins with different masses. However, as different folded forms of a particular protein have identical masses, it is virtually impossible to differentiate them by conventional means. That's where the Waters Synapt HDMS system and its embedded ion mobility technology can help.


Dietary fibre extractors

07 February, 2008 | Supplied by: Rowe Scientific Pty Ltd

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.


New standard in routine FTIR

07 February, 2008 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific

The ALPHA is the FT-IR spectrometer for your basic infrared analysis. It enables quick, easy and reliable FT-IR analysis.


A new direction for gas spectroscopy

15 January, 2008

Physicists at NIST-Boulder have carried out a powerful new spectroscopic study of a gas sample using optical frequency combs.


Raman spectrometric data cleansing

11 January, 2008

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.


Signal isolator

09 January, 2008 | Supplied by: Innovec Controls Pty Ltd

The ISCX1 is a signal isolator that accepts a 4-20 mA signal with an input impedance of 50W or 0-10 VDC with an input impedance of 1 mW and provides an isolated output signal of 4-20 mA or 0-10 VDC with an accuracy of 0.1%.


The key to impeding drug resistance in bacteria

23 December, 2007

Researchers have solved the structure of a DNA-protein complex that is crucial in the spread of antibiotic resistance among bacteria, providing insights into how cells successfully divide into two new cells with intact DNA.


First look at an enzyme target for cancer treatment

21 December, 2007

US scientists have modelled an enzyme critical to the process of DNA transcription and replication which could be a prime target for antibacterial and anticancer drugs.


Turbulent flow chromatography columns

06 December, 2007 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific

Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced a line of silica-based TurboFlow columns designed exclusively for use with Thermo Scientific Transcend Systems. The columns provide scientists in clinical research and pharmaceutical analysis the capability to integrate online sample preparation with LC-MS analysis. The TurboFlow XL columns enable researchers to reduce sample preparation time and minimise ion suppression, while providing faster analysis and more confident data.


Optical sectioning in real time

06 December, 2007 | Supplied by: Carl Zeiss Pty Ltd

Conventional wide field fluorescent imaging is hindered by the detection of out of focus light above and below the specimen plane being examined. This has limited traditional fluorescent microscopes to a Z-direction resolution of approximately 1 µm. This limitation has spurred the adoption of the laser scanning microscope (LSM) into examination of subcellular biology with the capability of Z-resolutions below 0.5 µm.


Spectrometer with atomic resolution

06 December, 2007

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


Visually observing immune responses in living tissue

22 November, 2007

The Centenary Institute, one of Australia ’s leading medical research institutes, has unveiled a microscope more powerful than any other in the country.


Gel documentation and digital colour imaging system

07 November, 2007 | Supplied by: DKSH Australia Pty Ltd

The UVP PhotoDoc-It imaging system is suitable for basic documentation of gels and plates. The system is configured for limited laboratory space and budgets.


Wireless temperature monitoring system

07 November, 2007 | Supplied by: Ai Scientific Pty Ltd

The AES Chemunex Labguard2 is a wireless system that continuously monitors laboratory equipment and automatically alerts users to any problems. Easy to use and install, the Labguard2 provides the data required for FDA CFR21 part 11 and GLP compliance.
