PANalytical has extended the compatibility of its Omnian advanced standardless analysis software to include the compact benchtop MiniPal 4 X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometer. This combination offers an XRF solution that is both easy to use and powerful. It is suitable for routine laboratory and field analysis, offering quantification of unknowns in situations where certified standards are not available.
Ecotech’s WinAQMS data acquisition system (DAS)is a fifth-generation data gathering and control system that has been specifically designed for use in ambient air, meteorological and emission monitoring applications.
The Hengstler Tico 772 electronic multifunctional counter is an AC version of the versatile counter.
SoftGenetics has added a bar-code tool to its second-generation sequence analysis software, NextGENe. The software allows biologists to analyse the vast amount of data generated by next-generation sequencing systems using preprogrammed applications, an easy-to-use interface and algorithms, and quickly process the sequence and quality files on standard Windows 64-bit operating system hardware.
Mecmesin Emperor software for tension and compression testing has been designed for use in quality control laboratories where the mechanical properties of manufactured products need to be assessed on a routine basis.
Biomatters has released version 5.0 of Geneious Pro, its powerful but user-friendly sequence analysis software. This upgrade allows full bacterial genome assembly for data generated by Illumina, 454, SOLiD, Helicos and other sequencers to be done on a desktop computer and features many improvements to visualise, browse and analyse the large volumes of data created with next-generation sequencing.
The latest version of the graphical and programmatic tool for computational systems biology and pharmacokinetics, SimBiology, provides new features and enhanced performance capabilities, including multiple dosing schemes, for pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) modelling and simulation of biological systems.
An innovative computational technique that draws on statistics, imaging and other disciplines has the capability to detect errors in sensitive technological systems ranging from satellites to laboratories to weather instruments.
The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech has introduced an 8-channel, 12-bit, 10 kS/s multifunction USB DAQ module for testing, laboratory, student or training use. The USB-4702 is a specialised low-cost unit that has no casing whatsoever and is intended for users looking for basic functionality.
Waters has become the exclusive distributor of Fusion Method Development software, developed by S-Matrix Corporation. The software works seamlessly with Waters Empower 2 chromatography data software (CDS) and Acquity UltraPerformance LC (UPLC) to automate liquid chromatographic method development according to quality-by-design (QbD) guidelines. Fusion not only greatly accelerates method development, it enables development of more robust methods which transfer successfully and withstand the test of repeated use.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has released a full-featured LIMS that offers automated data management and is designed specifically for small to mid-sized laboratories. The recently released Thermo Scientific Watson LIMS offers enhanced functionality for large molecule bioanalysis in pharmaceutical and contract research organisation laboratories.
