Phenomenex has introduced a range of Luna PFP(2) (pentafluorophenyl propyl) columns. These bring together the advantages of Luna silica with the chemistry of a pentafluorophenyl for increased selectivity and reproducibility for difficult compounds.
The PowerWave microplate spectrophotometers combine a monochromator-based optical system with hardware and software features designed to meet a variety of microplate-based applications. The readers allow the user to either scan across selected wavelengths or select a discrete wavelength (in 1 nm increments) across the UV-Vis range.
The Gerstel MPS PrepStation automates a wide range of GC sample preparation and sample introduction techniques. Liquid sample preparation, such as standard addition, derivatisation and extraction, is combined with liquid, headspace or SPME sample introduction.
The Unique HT LCMS is designed for complex liquid sample analysis. A high-speed MS detector with integrated control of an Agilent 1200 SL HPLC provides the data density required to support current and future advances in ultra-fast liquid chromatography.
PerkinElmer has announced the Optima 7000 series of inductively coupled plasma-optical emissions spectrophotometers (ICP-OES). The family is designed for best-in-class inorganic analysis and is used in a variety of markets, including environmental, geochemical, product testing and biofuels.
Scientists at the US Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory have devised a 'next generation' X-ray light source — the free electron laser oscillator (X-FELO) — that is many times brighter than current X-ray technologies.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have built a system that relies on the ‘noise’ of jiggling electrons as a basis for measuring temperatures with extreme precision. The system may help define the Kelvin.
