Considering all options for liquid nitrogen supply systems, including size and safety, is critical to further the growth of cryogenic applications.
The January issue of Laboratory Equipment features a cover story on easy-to-use, next-generation automation systems. Other articles discuss multi-angle light scattering spectroscopy as a biomedical research tool, as well as different sample preparation techniques for seafood. Product updates include: glove boxes, fume hoods, IR/FTIR, power supplies, pipettes and syringes, and chemicals, gases and standards. Special application sections this month are: food and beverage, biofuel technologies and lab design and furnishings.
Making lab automation systems usable to non-experts is becoming a driver for equipment suppliers.
Centrifugal evaporation has proven itself as a fast, safe and efficient sample preparation method in the analysis of foodstuffs for prohibited antibiotics.
Even with technology-based ROI’s, siting productivity studies, regional tax incentives and third-party recommendations, there are a lot of gray areas for deciding on what or where a new or renovated lab will be built, not the least of which is the economic environment for the company and the country.
Multi-angle light scattering coupled with size exclusion chromatography delivers quality data and further advances researchers’ understanding of human health and disease.
The December issue of Laboratory Equipment features a cover story on the lab of the future 2019. Using data collected from reader surveys, Laboratory Equipment presents the expected changes, technologies and overall feel of the laboratory in five years. Other articles discuss digital and real-time PCR in proteomics research, enabling mobile labs via mobile phones and temperature standardization for samples. Special application sections include proteomics, environmental and field testing and biofuel technologies.
New instrumentation, new technologies and traditional cost savings will drive development of new aspects for the lab of the future.
With the increasing sensor systems combined with a broad ranging and increasingly faster Internet network, is it really that far-fetched to not believe that a large computer system could become sentient? But if this extrapolation is still mostly an unrealistic example of my paranoia, the facts remain that computer systems are being filled with increasingly large amounts of personal data and activities.
Laboratories remain slow to adopt protocols and technologies that can improve and standardize temperature control in biomaterial sample handling and preservation.
PCR technologies, both real-time and digital, show significant promise for growth in the future.
Smartphones have the ability to be as transformative in the lab as they have been in our personal lives.
The November issue of Laboratory Equipment features a cover story on cleaning and waste management, as well as other articles on scales and balances and pipetting evolution and innovation. The last retrospective in Laboratory Equipment's 50th anniversary celebration discusses the first few years of the current decade, and the questions we're left with for the future. Special product sections include: sample prep systems, hazardous storage cabinets, pipettes and syringes, life science and biomedical, lab design and furnishings and weighing systems.
Laboratory washers, cleaning consumables and waste programs help keep the laboratory contamination-free.
While not even a half-decade yet, the 2010s have managed to leave quite an impression already. These past few headline-grabbing years may have stirred up more questions than answers, though— like, how do we handle climate change and all nature throws our way? How are we going to feed an overpopulated world with diminishing resources? What should our space goals be, and how can we obtain these and other goals with reduced funding?
The world of oil is a complex one, a double-edged sword. While continuing to support OPEC nations by purchasing their oil may appear to maintain a sense of political stability, it also acts to fund directly or indirectly much of the terrorist activities that led initially to the 9/11 attacks on our country and many related events since then.
Improvements in pipetting performance in the past 40 years have allowed scientists to obtain more accurate and precise data.
Technological advancements in laboratory balances drive the instrument forward in previously unserved industries.
