High-speed digital camera

09 August, 2006 | Supplied by:

Based on the SpeedCam MiniVis, the versions MiniVis ECO-1 and ECO-2 offer a maximum of flexibility in resolution and speed. The sophisticated systems convince users with a maximum resolution up to 1.280 x 1.024 pixels and recording speeds of up to 32.000 frames per second, with reduced resolution (ECO-2). The ECO series cameras are suitable for any R&D laboratory application that requires high-speed video.

EMCCD camera

09 August, 2006 | Supplied by:

The EMCCD camera from Andor, the iXonEM+ combines photon collection efficiencies of up to 95% QE with single photon sensitivity through virtual elimination of the read noise detection limit. The range offers multiple readout speeds up to 35 MHz, 14 and 16 bit digitisation and benefits from negligible dark current with thermoelectric cooling down to -100°C. Andor's vertical clock parameters ensure that clock induced charge (spurious noise) is low. Rapid vertical clocking ensures the frame rates are fast and smear is minimal.

Molecular DNA switch found to be the same for all life

18 July, 2006

The molecular machinery that starts the process by which a biological cell divides into two identical daughter cells apparently worked so well early on that evolution has conserved it across the eons in all forms of life on Earth.

Protein crystallisation facility

14 June, 2006

The Bio21 Collaborative Crystallisation Centre (Bio21-C3) is the first of its kind in Australia and will be opened by the Parliamentary Secretary for Innovation and Industry, Matt Viney, MP.

Imaging system for gene therapy

07 June, 2006 | Supplied by: Total Lab Systems Ltd

The UVIchemi chemiluminescence imaging system can be used for imaging western blots which are an important method used to determine the effectiveness of gene transfer. In many cases, the images produced can be analysed (quantified) using UVIband analysis software also from UVItec.

Pressure calibrator

07 June, 2006 | Supplied by: WIKA Australia

With the CPH 6000 process calibrator, routine tasks in the field such as testing or calibrating pressure measuring instruments and pressure switches, are said to be made far easier.

'Before' calibrations count more than many think

08 May, 2006 by Chris Sorensen, VP, Dickson Company

Not that rigorous? Anathema though this thought may be to most pharmaceutical quality managers, it is nonetheless quite apparent to companies such as ours, which make products critical to maintaining quality in pharmaceutical and other applications

Electron microscopy specimen preparation

07 April, 2006 | Supplied by:

The Auto 306 high vacuum coating system provides the electron microscopist with a high quality vacuum system capable of performing a wide range of different preparation techniques in a single vacuum chamber.

Wine analysers

07 April, 2006 | Supplied by: Foss Pacific Pty Ltd

Foss has released a new generation of analysers for routine analysis of wine and grape-must. The analysers are: WineScan Grape for dedicated analysis of grape-must, WineScan Flex for analysis of both grape-must and wine and WineScan Auto for efficient, unattended analysis of wine.

Inhaler aerosol sizing

08 March, 2006 | Supplied by: ATA Scientific Pty Ltd

A group of pharmaceutical companies has combined to develop the next-generation impactor specifically for pharmaceutical inhalers.

BioSpec-mini spectrophotometer

08 March, 2006 | Supplied by: Bio-Strategy Pty Ltd

Quantum Scientific has released the Shimadzu BioSpec-mini spectrophotometer that comes standard with a spectrum mode allowing for full spectral data acquisition over the wavelength range of 190 to 1100 nm.

Surface hygiene test

08 March, 2006 | Supplied by: Biotrace Asia Pacific

Pro-tect is a rapid surface hygiene test, providing a rapid method to monitor whether food contact surfaces have been effectively cleaned.

Optical devices get fishy

23 February, 2006

Scientists in the US have used the DNA from fish waste to make optical components. The team, led by James Grote of the US Air Force Research Laboratory, says that the material could be used to make optical waveguides, modulators and light-emitting diodes. They also claim that fish DNA, which is abundant and environmentally friendly, could outperform other polymer-based devices.

Pitching for gas concentration

22 February, 2006

Penn State University researchers have developed a prototype sonic gas analyser that automatically and continuously tracks the concentration of a gas in an air/gas mixture based on changes in pitch.

New look for optical microscopy

21 February, 2006

Physicists in Switzerland and Germany have made a new type of optical microscope that can produce images without capturing light from the sample. The new device relies on measuring changes in the properties of a gold nanoparticle placed next to the sample. The nanoantenna could have application in sensing devices (Phys Rev Lett 95 200801).
