Automated cell separator

13 November, 2006 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific

Robosep is claimed to be the first instrument to provide true 'walk-away' automation of magnetic cell separation. Using column-free technology to isolate cells by either positive or negative selection, Robosep can label and separate up to four samples (volume between 2.5 x 107 and 8 x 109 cells) at one time. Robosep is easily controlled by an integrated colour touch screen and provides its users with the convenience of using EasySep Reagents and disposable tips to eliminate cross contamination.


Point-of-care testing inches closer

13 November, 2006 by Wendy Cramer, Journalist

Point-of-care testing (PoCT) by general practitioners, or even within the home, is certainly not a new concept. In fact, many PoCT tests have been used for decades, such as the ECG, dipstick urinalysis, pregnancy and blood glucose testing


Transformer isolation and noise reduction
