The Elma Ultrasonics S ultrasonic cleaning baths range features: drainage taps and outlets on most models; engineered basket handles to reduce contact with cleaning solutions; solid basket sides to prevent item damage and improve safety; plastic cover to reduce noise; set cleaning period and remaining cleaning time are both indicated; degas feature - removing gas from cleaning solutions; sweep feature - homogenous sound field distribution; auto safety switch off after 12 h; carry handles on most models; lid can be used as a basket drip tray; cleaning tanks made of cavitation-resistant high quality stainless steel; optional heating 30-80°C in 5°C steps; and, heating - set and actual temperature displayed.
The Varioklav 65T Steam Steriliser from H+P has a deep square chamber so the total usable capacity is increased over the conventional round chamber design. The 65T can hold up to 18 x 1 L round laboratory flasks at one time. On top of this, the bench design allows smarter use of space.
Membrane filters are specially tested for microbiology. 0.45 µm white gridded membranes are tested for coliform, faecal streptococci and serratia marcescens. All 0.65 µm white gridded membranes are tested for complete retention and optimal recovery of faecal coliform and saccharomyces cerevisieae.
Tecan Systems has launched the Cavro XLP 6000, a versatile high performance syringe pump. The pump is designed for precision liquid handling applications in the 5 µL to 25 mL range and is suitable for clinical diagnostics, life science research and analytical applications.
Researchers will experience fast filtration flow rates with Nalgene MF75 Filter Units and Bottle Top Filters, which incorporate the sterilisation-grade Pall Supor machV membrane. The membranes are composed of polyethersulfone (PES), the same material used for processing biological and pharmaceutical samples for drug discovery and basic research.
Biomicroscopy solution provider, ibidi has launched ibiTreat, a surface modification for improved cell adhesion on µ-Slides, ibidi's microscopy carriers. ibiTreat enables optimal cell adhesion and proliferation and allows high resolution microscopy under perfusion conditions.
Thermo Electron has concluded an OEM Agreement with Sotax AG, whereby Sotax dissolution baths will be offered with Thermo's Nicolet Evolution 300 UV/vis spectrophotometer. This collaboration will provide pharmaceutical customers with a high-quality, complete, and automated turnkey system supporting various pharmacopoeia methods.
The Pod platform is an innovative filter system for normal flow clarification and prefiltration applications. Designed for greater process flexibility and productivity, the disposable technology improves process speed, safety and economies in the manufacturing of biopharmaceuticals.
