EZ-2 HCl benchtop centrifugal evaporator provides an efficient and safe means of routinely removing strongly acidic chemicals from samples.
The C9100 camera features high gain, and good signal to noise, resolution and speed combined with a proprietary hermetic vacuum chamber evacuated to 10 פ Torr. High vacuum, deep cooling and unit electronics reduce camera noise before the gain multiplication process begins.
Producing new anti-microbial therapies and vaccines to treat biological terrorism threats such as anthrax and smallpox has become a priority. Since colony counts provide the data on which the efficacy of this type of treatment is based, it is essential to obtain accurate counts in the shortest possible time.
High content screening (HCS), or the automation of image-based cell biological investigation, has rapidly become a widely utilized approach in basic cell biological research and drug discovery. 1 Currently available tools for HCS address the need for automation and integration of all activities involved in the performance of image-based cellular investigation.
Acumen Explorer 405 microplate cytometer is offered in a model with a single violet (405 nm) laser excitation source.

Columbus Pro microplate washer is offered for applications ranging from diagnostic tests to cell based research. The instrment achieves high wash performance by having very low residual volumes (less than 2 μl) and multiple aspiration points for each well.
Accuspot MALDI plate spotter automates LC micro-fractionation, spotting and preparation for mass spec analysis.
The robotic version of Hettich's model Rotanta 46RSC refrigerated centrifuge offers PC control and rotor positioning with maximum capacity of four, 750 ml round bottom containers, sixteen multiple-well plates or four deep-well plates. The Rotanta 46RSC is designed for automatic sample.
TekCel, Inc.'s Adaptive Process Technology (APT) is the foundation of its Tube Management System. APT uses a combination of robotics and software to optimize tube-picking processes to achieve overall throughput and efficiency.
The Quadra3 pipetting workstation is offered with lidded plate handling stackers and automatic de-lidding capability.
Thermo Electron Corporation has introduced the RapidStak microplate stacker for their Multidrop 384 Dispenser, Multidrop Micro Dispenser, and Wellwash AC Microplate Washer. Intuitive design allows the stacker to deliver and stack plates simultaneously.
