FreZone Freeze Dry Systems feature a compact benchtop design to fit on a laboratory cart or countertop. The units are suitable for personal use by one researcher. The LCD system set-up and operating parameters may be user-configured to display vacuum in mBar, Pa or Torr and temperature in °F or °C. It also displays total number of hours of refrigeration operation and the total number of hours of vacuum pump operation — including the last time they were both serviced.
The Thermo Scientific Orion Star series of portable optical dissolved oxygen meters includes the single-parameter 3-Star RDO meter, the dual-parameter 4-Star pH/RDO meter and the multi-parameter 5-Star pH/RDO/conductivity meter.
Liquid Handling Talk, an online forum dedicated to pipetting and automated liquid handling quality, was launched recently, providing a means for scientists to discuss liquid handling issues and developments with peers and specialists around the world.
Researchers at Tel Aviv University have developed a lab-on-a-chip that uses genetically engineered bacteria to measure water quality in real time.
The Vacuubrand PC 3001 Vario automatic chemistry vacuum pumping system offers chemistry diaphragm pump technology combined with a fully automated vacuum control system. Applications include rotary evaporation, vacuum concentration, vacuum drying, general distillations and filtration.
The PyroEpsilon series non-contact temperature sensors measure the temperature of inaccessible or moving objects and materials. They can measure temperatures from -20 to +500 °C, accurately and consistently, with a response time of 240 ms.
