The AD 340 absorbance detector, a flexible microplate reader for 6 to 384 well formats, is offered for life science applications in the 340-750 nm wavelength range.
The Multiskan Spectrum combines both standard UV/Visible spectrophotometer cuvette reading capabilities and advanced Microtiter® plate reading in one compact instrument.
The Cary Eclipse fluorescence spectrophotometer uses an intense Xenon flash lamp, coupled with Schwarzschild collection optics, to send a huge amount of light through a sample, resulting in excellent sensitivity. In fact, less than 0.
New BioMini UV/Vis spectrophotometer is capable of nucleic acid analysis, protein quantitation, and spectrum measurement. The comprehensive nucleic acid isolation module provides quantitation methods for double and single stranded DNA, RNA and standard Warburg-Christian.
The FARCyte fluorescence and luminescence plate reader for all microplate formats is optimized to perform in combination with Amersham Pharmacia Biotech's red-shifted fluors - the Gold CyDye range.
Upchurch Scientific is now extruding tubing out of Radel® R polymer (polyphenylsulfone), a mechanically strong, chemically resistant material much like PEEK. The material maintains its strength in applications requiring repeated autoclave sterilization (environments as high as 200 C).
The ProtoCOL automated system, which includes ProtoZONE and the upgraded Version 4 ProtoCOL software, measures inhibition zones and enumerates colonies. The software offers a method for automatically measuring antibiotic susceptibility zones.
The Hamilton MICROLAB® STAR liquid handling workstation is now available with the iSWAP internal gripper. The gripper uses the same gripping mechanism as the MICROLAB SWAP microplate-handling robot.
Array-Ready Oligo Sets are for differential gene expression analysis. Arabidopsis, Candida albicans, Caenorhabditis elegans , and Drosophila melanogaster genomes have been added to its existing product line (human, mouse, rat, yeast, tuberculosis, and malaria).
The website www.mutationdiscovery.com includes the genomic DNA sequences of over 8600 well-understood human genes with information on over 500,000 observed variations on these genes.
Thermo EC's new EC PRO6000 can run both 1st dimension and 2nd dimension gels. The stand-alone unit offers the combined features of 6000V output, microamp display, 1 mA current limiting ability, and linear voltage ramping that are designed for IEF applications.
Diagnostic Instruments offers three new camera models for 2003. The SPOT INSIGHT (pictured) 3-Shot Color Camera provides excellent imaging for both brightfield and bright fluorescence microscopy.
Modern screening systems can run up to 300,000 samples a day. Clear identification of microplates is therefore an absolute must in the HTS laboratory. The CyBi-Print vario labels up to 240 microplates per hour quickly and reliably with high flexibility in barcode definition.
Beckman Coulter, Incorporated has introduced a new class of MHC Tetramers which detect and quantitate the T cells that influence many autoimmune diseases.
