Researchers have created a tool that can swiftly analyse microbes in oceans and other aquatic environments, revealing their health and their response to threats to their ecosystems.
Researchers have created a new kind of fibre from a combination of chitin nanoparticles — extracted from residual blue crab shells — and alginate, a compound found in seaweed.
The epMotion 5070 is a compact automated liquid handling workstation for normalisation, PCR or qPCR set-up of 96 samples.
The Eppendorf Research plus is a safe and ergonomic pipette, designed to protect the health of users during their daily work. It incorporates the PhysioCare Concept, which should reduce the strain on the hand and arm during pipetting.
Bio-Strategy and Hamilton introduce the compact Microlab Prep automated liquid handler — a suitable entry-level solution for those transitioning away from manual pipetting in 96- and 384-well microplates and other sample vessels.
Here are some important questions to ask when selecting OEM components and robotic platforms for automated liquid handling.
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.
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.
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.
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.
VEGA's measurement portfolio for pharmaceuticals production now includes the VEGABAR pressure switches/sensors and VEGAPOINT level switches. The measuring instruments are tailored to standard applications that require high quality.
MySirius is a cloud-based service from JRI that coordinates the collection of sensor data to the cloud and enables users to receive alarms via SMS and email, no matter where they are.
The Nano DSC is a powerful thermal scanning instrument that utilises a 300 µL capillary cell design and solid-state thermoelectric temperature control.
Researchers have developed a self-cleaning surface that can repel all forms of bacteria, preventing the transfer of antibiotic-resistant superbugs and other dangerous bacteria in settings ranging from hospitals to kitchens.
