Kinematica POLYTRON PT 12oo E hand-held homogenizer offers an ergonomic design that minimizes the stresses related to repetitive homogenization. The unit has a 100 W motor and fingertip speed control. Samples up to 250 ml are processed at speeds up to 25,000 rpm.
Heraeus HERAsafe KS Class II safety cabinets feature a microprocessor-based control pad that is easily viewed, accessed and operated by any user in a seated position.
Purifier Class I Safety Enclosures provide protection from agents that require Biosafety level 1, 2 or 3 containment. Additionally, they serve as an economical alternative to Class II biological safety cabinets when applications do not require product protection.
Nor-Lake Scientific offers a complete line of refrigeration and environmental storage equipment to meet the most demanding needs and specifications.
Unistat 291w circulator offers highly efficient heating and cooling from 㫲 to 200 C. Manufactured by Huber, it has cooling capacities up to 19.0 kW with 24.0kW of heating.
Low-temperature circulators provide temperature control. Designed with a 13-L reservoir, 9700 Series Refrigerating/Heating Circulators feature a 㫅 to 200 C temperature range and are available with a choice of three controllers.
ZipVap Evaporator facilitates dry down of 96 and 384-well microplates. Needle height easily adjusts for 96 individual or 384 stainless steel needles. The unit holds standard microplates or deep well plates, and flow control is adjusted with a fine needle valve.
The Captair Flowcap 700S laminar flow-fume hood is 29 wide × 24 deep. It delivers class 100 / ISO 5 HEPA filtered air to the work surface, creating a sterile positive pressure environment.
JULABO heating and refrigerating circulator line includes Economy, TopTech, and HighTech series. Units typically offer an early warning system for low liquid level, clear displays, electronically adjustable pump capacity, automatic 3-point temperature calibration, and temperature control features.
VSOS-4 heavy-duty orbital shaker offers a uniform motion that provides both mixing and vortexing actions.
LANCERCLEAN Detergent and LANCERACID Rinse cleaning chemicals deliver optimum cleaning results for high-pressure glassware washers. Three different formulas are offered to clean everything from standard laboratory soils to hard-to-remove "baked-on" organics.
New generation of oil-free LABOPORT vacuum pumps further reduce operating noise levels using new materials, valve technology, and sound dampening techniques. Each model features a single-piece structured diaphragm for a long, reliable service life.
A glimpse of what's ahead in medicine
Microarray technology has come a long way since Affymax, predecessor to Affymetrix (Santa Clara, CA), introduced polypeptide arrays in the late 1980s. Today's gene, protein, and tissue arrays have evolved from research curiosities to the experimental platform of choice for many life scientists and clinical researchers - something akin to high-tech, ultraminiaturized microtiter plates.
Cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) Targeted Mutation Mouse models are offered for investigating the role of cyclooxygenases in inflammatory diseases. COX Targeted Mutation mice have disruptions in one of the two Pts (protaglandin-endoperoxide synthase) genes.
