Imaging living samples of cells or other organisms in real time places new demands on the microscope, the chamber needed to support the sample and the microscopist. This article details recent efforts to answer the first two of these areas.
Highly purified water has become a standard tool in molecular biology. Techniques such as reverse osmosis, electrodeionization, ultrafiltration, and chemical treatments provide water of varying quality and utility. Water quality specifications differ for applications such as liquid chromatography, in situ hybridizations, single nucleotide polymorphism analysis, and DNA amplification.

Over the last decade a new technology has emerged that allows cells to grow in three-dimensional structures. This platform, which mimics more the natural state of cells existing in vivo and provides cells biological surfaces rather than plastics for adherence and growth, has become an invaluable tool in the study of normal cells, as well as in the study of cancer genesis and progression.
With a footprint measuring 24 W × 36 D, thin-wall insulation, and a narrow cabinet design, the JEWETT LTU-11 SUPER COLD 㫮 C upright freezer provides 11 cu/ft of storage for critical samples.
Upright ultra-low Forma PowerFREEZE ULT freezer offers capacities ranging from 11.6 to 20.2 cu/ft. The freezers provide sample integrity, safe storage, and easy cleaning. They also feature cooling coils in the shelves to increase heat transfer efficiency for complete product protection at 㫮 C.
Incubators feature a lift-out shaker platform which accommodates a range of flask clamps, test tube racks, and a microtiter plate clamp. Four load-bearing positions are incorporated for optimal weight distribution.
CryoSecure Proximity Card Access System provides access control for the REVCO? range of upright ultra-low temperature freezers.
MACSmix tube rotator runs on rechargeable batteries and operates independently from a permanent power supply. Since it is suitable for use in a temperature range of 2 to 42 C, it can be placed in a refrigerator or incubator.
Misonix Ductless Fume Hoods are self-contained carbon or HEPA filtered enclosures that remove hazardous fumes, vapors and particles. Maximum protection is ensured with control systems that continuously monitor and digitally display the face velocity.
VirTis Benchtop Shell Bath is a self-contained, compact freezing unit that produces a frozen product coating to the inside of freeze-drying flasks. This allows the freeze-drying process to be more efficient, permitting a greater volume of material to be processed during each run.
