Soil represents one of the most diverse habitats for microorganisms. by Ravi J. Venugopal and Mark N.
Diaphragm vacuum pumps provide effective vacuum for bottle top and manifold filtration, vacuum degassing, desiccation and other applications. These pumps are maintenance-free, as there is no pump oil to change, nor is water or a drain required for operation.
Ductless filtration systems for robotics instruments can be custom engineered for specific fume/particle or containment problems. Modular design enables building to specification economically.
The GR4 automated centrifuge presents and accepts microplates above the lid. Plate-handling robots do not have to insert themselves into the centrifuge to pick and/or place samples, so any type of gripper configuration can be used.
The N5 Submicron Particle Size Analyzer's 25 mW output laser allows analysis of samples in the 3 nm to 3 μm sizes range, samples that can be difficult to measure due to their weak scattering nature.
Jouan IG 650, water-jacketed, 5.4 cubic foot, benchtop incubator is equipped for total environmental control. Sensors and digital systems are provided to control temperature, relative humidity, and CO 2 .
Incubators provide precise temperature control and uniformity by utilizing microprocessor control. Shortwave ultraviolet sterilizes the chamber between experiments. The incubator is designed with minimal airflow disturbance. Two non-tip shelves are adjustable at 2.5 inch (63.5 mm) increments.
EchoTherm Models IN30, IN35, IN40 and IN45 convection chilling/heating incubators, offered for benchtop use in any laboratory, feature PID temperature control to 0.1 C over a 4.0 to 70.
New SafeCell UV technology is central to the SANYO MCO-20AIC cell culture CO 2 incubator, which is designed to protect in vitro cell cultures from contamination while minimizing incubator downtime.
Thermo Forma's Steri-Cult CO 2 incubators have been redesigned. New models offer high capacity (8.2 and 11.4 cu/ft chambers), an external humidification system, Class 100 HEPA filtration, on-demand heat sterilization, low velocity laminar airflow, and other improvements.
NuAire Class II biological safety cabinets offer maximum personnel, product and environmental protection. Product features include the HEPEX zero leak airflow system, true laminar airflow, ergonomic design and advanced safety features.
Modular Incubator Chamber MIC-101 enables creation and reliable maintenance of a wide range of gas mixtures. Custom hypoxic/hyperoxic or normoxic conditions allows isolation and propagation of stem cell lines and increases embryo success rates in IVF procedures.
Memmert BE and BP series incubators provide temperature control in the range of +5 C above ambient to 70 C. Homogeneous incubation temperatures conditions are achieved by utilizing double doors and gentle, all-around heating. Available in sizes from 1.1 cu/ft to 26.
Wheaton Science Products, an Alcan Packaging Company, has introduced the R P Roller Culture Apparatus, which enables the development of cell cultures on a research scale unit that can then expand as required to production capacity.
