The Micronic Univo Screw Cap Recapper SR008 can cap or decap 8 tubes with screw caps in a single action.
To help laboratories comply with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling, CILS has developed the CILS-8100GHS range of computer-printable durable labels, which can resist solvents, chemicals, abrasion, weathering and extreme temperatures (-196 C to 388 C).
A new online edition of a highly popular book that reviews third party papers on the applications and usage of Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) is now available from Malvern Instruments.
A scientist who faked results of an experimental HIV vaccine in rabbits to make it appear he had achieved a breakthrough was sentenced to more than four years in prison and $7 million in fines by a federal judge.
Blue eyes could be a risk factor for alcohol dependence, according to a new University of Vermont study. People with lighter-colored eyes had a higher incidence of problem drinking, according to the results.
NASA may have just discovered the future of air transportation in a Shark Tank-style pitch meeting with its current employees— or they may not have. It’s too soon to tell, but definitely not too soon to imagine BIG.
As fireflies are delighting children across the country with their nighttime displays, scientists are closing in on a better understanding of how the insects produce their enchanting glow. They have reported new evidence of how the beetles’ chemistry works.
Sufferers from social anxiety are more than just a little shy. But being busy with acts of kindness can help people who suffer from social anxiety to mingle more easily.
Laboratory Equipment’s scientist of the week is Annalena Venneri from the University of Sheffield. She and a team discovered that people with O-type blood have more gray matter and are less prone to Alzheimer’s and similar diseases.
Researchers have reported their discovery of a neural circuit in the mouse olfactory bulb that explains how our mammalian cousins— and by extension, we— are able to adjust the gain on intense odors. There’s a need to dial down powerful signals sampled from the environment, for the simple reason that they would otherwise overpower the nerve cells that receive and process them.
Researchers have compared the pattern of spontaneous reported adverse drug reactions to St. John’s Wort— a herbal treatment for depression— and fluoxetine— a commonly prescribed antidepressant. They found that St. John’s Wort can produce the same adverse reactions as the drug, and serious side effects can occur when the two are taken together.
There may be far fewer galaxies further out in the universe than might be expected, suggests a new study based on simulations conducted on the Blue Waters supercomputer. The study shows the first results from the Renaissance Simulations, a suite of extremely high-resolution adaptive mesh refinement calculations of high redshift galaxy formation.
New research has found that how old you feel changes on a daily basis– and that may have very real ramifications for monitoring your well-being. The researchers also wanted to determine if other variables that could be tracked on a daily basis could be used to predict how old someone felt on any given day. They can.
Age divides U.S. public opinion about science issues as much as political ideology, a new analysis of recent polling shows. There are dramatic generation gaps in opinions on global warming, offshore drilling, nuclear power, childhood vaccines, gene modification to reduce a baby’s disease risk, untested medicine use, lab tests on animals and evolution.
A study has showed that targeting plants with red and blue LEDs provides energy-efficient lighting in contained environments, a finding that could advance the development of crop-growth modules for space exploration.
