The Vortex autosampler employs an integrated autosampling device and a multi-stirrer that increases efficiency, enhances precision and promotes operator safety.
StatPrep is a flexible, single-channel, robotic pipetting device that accommodates almost any microplate, test tube, vial or reservoir. With a footprint that measures 315 × 446 mm, it uses a pipetting mechanism (electromagnetic bellows) with no seals or parts to wear down in the pump.
The AquaTec water preservation cell for the prevention of waterborne contamination in CO 2 incubators and water baths provides worry-free sample incubation and cell culture. The cell provides up to six months of protection from more than 600 types of bacteria, viruses, molds and fungi.
The ALS series air-lift mixer stands allow one portable mixer to mix multiple tanks with varying requirements. Stable and compact, they feature an air-operated hand pump for raising and lowering the mixer’s shaft into a tank.
Will Multidisciplinary Collaboration Drive Tomorrow's Scientific Breakthroughs? By Thomas Ricci Today, more and more research in analytical chemistry is occurring at the interfaces between biological, physical, and the materials sciences.
by Roland Anderson, laboratory products manager with KNF Neuberger, Inc.Recent interactions with scientists who use diaphragm vacuum pumps have brought to light different aspects of employing vacuum in their labs to make a solid case for portable, standalone vacuum systems.
by Ngoc Nguyen, Kory Kelly and Sky Countryman, Phenomenex, Inc.Although GC is the standard analysis technique for this method, it has several inherent challenges. These tests run at very high temperatures and standard fused silica columns are not engineered to withstand temperatures above 380 C.
Software Alleviates the Complexities by David Trowbridge, Ph.D., Polymer Chemist, CANNON Instrument Company The distinguishing aspect of polymeric materials is the relatively large size of their molecules—so large that they have been termed macromolecules.
by Erin P. T. Canning. Laboratory managers share insights in overcoming new obstacles. In a survey conducted in February 2007, 71.3% of Laboratory Equipment's readers reported an increase in safety and environmental regulations.
When the Office of Science and Engineering Laboratories (OSEL), part of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), recently moved to new quarters in suburban Washington, its ability to perform precision research dramatically improved, thanks to advanced planning.
