Aimed principally at undergraduate teaching laboratories within colleges and universities, the 100-page “An Introduction to Flow Chemistry – A Practical Laboratory Course” from Vapourtec details a set of 10 continuous-flow processing experiments, each of which can be easily delivered in conjunction with the company’s E-series flow unit during a regular lab period.
Thermo Fisher Scientific’s second generation Q Exactive Plus LC-MS is designed to further increase performance for applications such as bottom-up proteomics, lipidomics and high-confidence DMPK qual/quan screening studies.
CRAIC Technologies has developed an UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometer for microscopes. The 508 Perfect Vision is designed to be added to an open photoport of a microscope or probe station so that users can non-destructively analyze the spectra of many types of microscopic samples
Anasys Instruments’ nanoIR2, a second generation AFM-based IR spectroscopy platform, operates with top-side illumination, eliminating the prior need to prepare samples on a ZnSe prism, and enabling measurements on a much more diverse set of samples.
IDRaman micro from Ocean Optics is a compact microscope designed for Raman measurements in research, quality control and quality assurance environments.
Flow Cytometer, Reagents Simplify Sample Prep
INTEGRA’s VIAFLO 96 handheld electronic pipette, used in conjunction with Seahorse Bioscience’s XF96 Extracellular Flux Analyzer, provides high throughput screening of the cellular bioenergetics of multiple cell lines.
Genevac’s Rocket 4D—a fully automated system for drying or concentration of large volumes up to 100 L—allows users to dry or concentrate samples with complete confidence as it uses proprietary vacuum technology to suppress solvent bumping and foaming, problems associated with sample loss when using large-scale rotary evaporators.
The CentriVap micro IR Vacuum Concentrator from Labconco has a small footprint, enabling it to fit in tight spaces, and making it ideal for small throughput in molecular biology, proteomics, genomic, genetics, cell biology and drug discovery labs.
ViroStat has released three new monoclonal antibodies that have broad reactivity with several Rhinovirus types.
Torrey Pines Scientific’s EchoTherm Stackable/Programmable Vibration-Free Chilling Incubators are designed for protein crystallography and other life science uses.
SciGene’s Sodium Thiocyanate Pretreatment Reagent is a convenient 1M liquid formulation of NaSCN for pre-treating tissue samples prior to application of nucleic acid probes for cytogenetic assays.
Sartorius Stedim Biotech’s Microsart @media agar media dishes complement the company’s Microsart @vance, a product line for microbiological quality control in these sectors. The media dishes are designed for Microbial Limits Testing according to USP Chapter 61 and EP (Chapter 2.6.12).
Porvair Sciences’ new generation Krystal glass bottom plates are precision manufactured using a proprietary process resulting in excellent light transmission and an ultra-flat optical plane (+/-15 µm), making them ideal for imaging growing cells.
Cresset has released the Activity Miner module for Torch and Forge. Activity Miner is an intuitive SAR interpretation tool that identifies the key 3D structural and electrostatic changes impacting biological activity.
