High-throughput preparative separations

10 September, 2007 | Supplied by: Phenomenex Australia

Phenomenex's AXIA is an advanced column packing and hardware design that is claimed eliminates bed collapse as a source of failure in short prep columns. Using hydraulic piston compression (HPC) technology, several fundamental problems faced daily by preparative chromatographers have been solved: collapse, voiding or channelling of the support bed after packing - causing premature column failure; variability in bed density - degrading overall reproducibility; low and/or variable efficiency - making scale-up from analytical more difficult; and peak distortion or asymmetry - reducing the return on each purification cycle.


Box and cardboard compression tester

10 September, 2007 | Supplied by: IDM Instruments

IDM Instruments has designed and manufactured a box compression tester that evaluates packages and material under compressive loads.


DLS plate reader

06 August, 2007 | Supplied by: Shimadzu Scientific Instruments (Oceania) Pty Ltd

The DynaPro plate reader performs automated, high-throughput, temperature-controlled dynamic light scattering (DLS) measurements with industry-standard well plates without perturbing the samples. This device is designed to achieve rapid screening of unfractionated samples and is suitable for a wide range of applications including protein crystallography, pharmaceutical formulation and antibody aggregation studies. The plate reader uses industry-standard 96, 384 or 1536 well plates and features built-in temperature control as well as compatibility with the industry's liquid handling robots.


Oligonucleotide separations technology

06 August, 2007 | Supplied by: Waters Australia Pty Ltd

Waters has introduced two sets of columns for the purification and analysis of oligonucleotides. The Acquity UPLC OST C18 columns have been specifically designed to work with the Waters family of Acquity UltraPerformance LC products. The XBridge OST C18 columns are designed for advanced oligonucleotide HPLC separations. Both products are suitable for purifying and analysing synthetic oligonucleotides including siRNA, primers and probes, therapeutic drugs made by oligonucleotide manufacturers, diagnostic kit makers, government and university laboratories, and biotechnology companies.
