METTLER TOLEDO’s Non-alcoholic Beverage Solution Guide suggests best practices for chemical analyses used in this ever-expanding beverage arena, helping producers meet quality goals while protecting their brand, as well as manufacturing profit margins. Examples in the guide range from correct pipetting to multiparameter systems covering analytical concerns that help maintain product reputation, taste and safety.
Labconco’s Protector Echo filtered fume hoods line is an energy-efficient hood solution with several features that are unavailable on other ductless filtered hood. The hoods are intended to work with a broader range of chemicals than other kinds of ductless enclosures.
Perchloric Acid Hoods from HEMCO are engineered for the safe handling of perchloric acids in laboratory procedures. The hoods come in 48, 60, and 72” widths, and include a dedicated washdown and exhaust system.
The Purair 20 Ductless Fume Hood from Air Science has been designed to provide operator protection when using hazardous substances. A face velocity at 100 fpm ensures containment of fumes, and an alarm will alert the operator when the airflow falls to an unacceptable level.
Lucifer Furnaces’ Red Devil Series Model RD8-KHE24 is a space-saving dual chamber unit with working dimensions of 12 x 14 x 24” in both upper and lower chambers. The upper hardening chamber reaches 2200 F while the lower tempering oven heats to 1200 F.
HEMCO’s UniLine Furniture offerings include base cabinets, wall cabinets, countertops, sinks, fixtures, base tables, mobile workstations, specialty storage cabinets and peg boards.
Arcoplast’s flush-glazed interior window panels give planners the ability to create flexible floor plans with maximum light and visibility. The window units integrate with the company’s solid resin-glass composite panels, giving architects and design teams more custom options for high-tech and research facilities.
ZEISS’ MultiSEM 505 is a scanning electron microscope (SEM) that features 61 beams working in parallel, and offers a capture speed of 1220 megapixels/sec at a pixel size of 4 nm. This high acquisition speed is ideal for imaging neural tissue in brain research where it is now possible to observe much bigger samples than before.
Scientists and investigators in research, analytical and forensic laboratories can now acquire sharper visual images while gaining rapid, in-depth information on samples through enhancements to the Thermo Scientific Nicolet iN10 FT-IR microscope. Improved visual performance and upgrades to the software enable users to quickly locate and identify targeted materials.
Scientifica’s LASU, a solution for optogenetic stimulation and uncaging studies, is specifically suited to enhance the combination of electrophysiology, optogenetics and uncaging for advanced studies of neuronal processes. The system provides pinpoint positioning of laser beams for fast, accurate and repeatable experimental protocols.
