Restek Resprep Quick-Replace vacuum manifolds

22 January, 2020 | Supplied by: Leco Australia Pty Ltd

Cross-contamination of samples run in series through typical SPE vacuum manifolds is a common problem for sample preparation labs. Restek's Resprep Quick-Replace vacuum manifolds are designed to eliminate this risk as they contain a disposable valve liner that can be quickly and easily replaced between samples.


'Chameleon metals' change surfaces in response to heat

21 January, 2020

Treating particles of liquid metal alloys with heat causes them to roughen their surfaces with tiny spheres or nanowires. Control the heat and you can control the surface patterns.


Polymer fibres: light, strong and tough

14 January, 2020

One individual fibre is as thin as a human hair and weighs less than a fruit fly, yet is very strong: it can lift a weight of 30 grams without tearing.


How to remove air bubbles from your nanopipettes

09 January, 2020

Completely filling a nanopipette with a solution is challenging; because of the capillary force, an 'air bubble' is nearly always present in the pipette's tip.
