The proprietary Ultra centrifuge is available in two more modelsFixed Speed (U8F) for spinning only blood at 3,300 rpm, and Variable Speed (U8V) for spinning various fluids. This sturdy eight-place unit, with a unique triangle design that eliminates vibration, is an all-metal, one-piece design.
To authenticate QM efficiency and effectiveness in laboratory environments, the XP precision balance meets lab needs for high-resolution performance. With built in, comprehensive applications, the balance controls calibration, testing, and optimization.
Lab Tower portable laboratory vacuum station provides a single source for all pipetting, aspirating, and filtration duties. Quiet and corrosion resistant, it can be used with a variety of media. It is capable of a flow rate of 14 liters/min and a vacuum of 22.5 Hg.
Double-Braided Silicone Hose from AdvantaPure is flexible and is available in continuous lengths up to 50 feet.
Allegra® X-12 Series benchtop centrifuges offer capabilities that streamline cell separations. The Allegra X-12R and Allegra X-12 spin up to 4 × 750 ml and feature new Cell Culture Flask Adapters, which enable direct centrifugation of cell culture flasks.
The Beta Station portable workstation protects against beta-emitting isotopes. With the shield in the "down" position, it functions as a fully enclosed beta-shielding box.
QuickChange Pump Heads provide convenience and modularity for managing multiple fluids with Travcyl fluid handling systems. The pump head component quickly detaches from the motor/driver and is replaced with a spare QuickChange Pump Head in seconds.
McCour temperature control thermal blocks provide a temperature range of 𤩔 to +200 C. Caron's 2050W and Huber Ministat circulators provide ideal temperature control the thermal block by maintaining temperature control at ۪.1 C.
Eppendorf® Thermomixer R combines heating, cooling and mixing for application versatility. Simultaneous mixing and incubation accelerate reaction processes.
Model C85-12 freezers offers a temperature range of 㫀 to 㫭 C for use in medical research, biological storage, preserving tissue, plasma, blood cells, and microbiological and other samples.
CentriVap Benchtop Centrifugal Concentrators concentrate multiple small samples in large chambers for high throughput. Microprocessor controlled 300-watt heater speeds evaporation with a constant amount of heat up to 99 C in one-degree increments.
by Elizabeth Tolchin Taking a unique approach to gene therapy, researchers at the University of Texas, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, are investigating a new delivery method of the p53 gene for prevention of oral cancer.
by Elizabeth Tolchin At the University of Texas, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, gene therapy is taking many forms, with researchers testing a variety of novel approaches, several of which are advancing to clinical trial. Current studies include metastatic lung cancer, head and neck cancer, and brain cancer.
by Elizabeth Tolchin Using real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and gene expression assays, researchers identified six genes associated with survival in diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL), the most common form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The system offers a method for molecular profiling that could be used to identify patients who would be candidates for clinical studies or for new treatment regimens.
Endothelial cell migration is critical in the vascularization cascade underlying many normal and pathological processes, such as wound healing and tumor progression. Traditional angiogenesis assays using microporous membranes involve fixing, staining, and counting migrated cells.
