As anyone who works with them will tell you, it is impossible to know everything about technical gases off by heart. But now there is no need to: iGASES, the new app from Witt for iPhone, iPad and Android devices, answers your questions, even interactively.
Interworld Electronics has released the EKB-106 fully sealed, medical-grade, backlit keyboard with an integrated numeric keypad. The keyboard is completely sealed and provides IP67 protection.
Phenomenex has announced Structure Search functionality for accessing the company’s library of over 6000 HPLC/UHPLC, GC and sample preparation applications.
A novel approach to the use of multiple databases containing information about individual patients and how they respond to different therapies is helping medical scientists to improve cancer treatments.
Bruker’s industry focused, operator-friendly and networked chromatography software, CompassCDS 3.0, eliminates the costs associated with licensing of named users. With its capacity for customisation, the product provides operators with a powerful tool for a variety of analytical operations.
GenoLogics, a provider of laboratory information management system (LIMS) software specifically designed for next-generation omics labs, has announced that the Australian Genome Research Facility (AGRF) has implemented the GenoLogics Preconfigured Package for Illumina NGS and is now in full production, using the system.
The world’s largest particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), generates hundreds of millions of particle collisions each second. Recording, storing and analysing these vast numbers of collisions presents a massive data challenge: the LHC produces roughly 20 million GB of data each year.
The main technical difficulty in building a quantum computer could soon be the thing that makes it possible to build one, according to new research from the Australian National University (ANU).
The Method Scouting System is based on the Shimadzu Nexera next-generation ultra high performance liquid chromatograph (UHPLC). It uses the specially developed Method Scouting Solution control software and a robust, high-pressure column switching system to switch mobile phases and columns automatically, achieving a quick and accurate method scouting workflow.
ImarisVantage is a good analytical tool to create and present complex data sets visualised in Imaris. Users can produce informative plots, in which object data can be shown in multiple, scalable dimensions overlaid with original 3D volume data.
Rescentris has released Version 4.5 of its ELN software product CERF - Collaborative Electronic Research Framework - a scalable cross-platform ELN used to replace paper-based lab recordkeeping and enable controlled access and sharing of research knowledge.
A 300-atom ion-crystal is poised to be the heart of one of the most powerful computers ever developed - with performance claimed to be 80 orders of magnitude higher than any existing computer.
University of Granada researchers, in collaboration with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), are working on the development of an extremely precise communications and synchronisation system that has an accuracy of one nanosecond. Researchers plan to integrate this system into CERN's accelerators; more specifically, into the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator.
AARNet and Southern Cross Cable Networks (SCCN) have announced the extension of their SXTransPORT partnership to provide huge upgrades to research and education data connectivity between Australia and the rest of the world. The partnership will see SCCN deliver dual 40 Gbps circuits in 2012 and upgrades to dual 100 Gbps by 2016.
