Cole-Parmer’s line of histology equipment offers options for laboratories to save time and space, and reduce fatigue for the histology technician. The Tissue Embedding Station, which combines typical histology products into one module, requiring less benchtop space in the histology lab.
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments has introduced the DSC-60Plus Series differential scanning calorimeters, indispensable thermal analyzers for materials characterization.
Harvard Apparatus has introduced 10 new German-made surgical kits. These kits are designed for use with mice, rats, guinea pigs and larger subjects, for applications including isolated heart, isolated organ, microsurgery, microdialysis, major surgery and minor surgery.
Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc. announced the availability of its new ddPCR library quantification kit for Illumina TruSeq sample preparation protocols.
Prior Scientific’s new ultra compact spectrometer for microscopy applications, the LumaSpec 800, provides quantitative spectral data for virtually any microscopy light source.
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments launched the HS-20 Series of headspace samplers, which provides a headspace solution for any application analyzing volatile components in a difficult matrix. The HS-20 Series consists of two models: a Loop model for the traditional static headspace methods, and a Trap model, which adds the dynamic headspace technique for applications requiring greater sensitivity.
Biochrom announced the commercial launch of its EZ Read range of microplate readers. Measurement of ELISA assays is a major application of absorbance-based microplate readers. Biochrom offers a solution for scientists running ELISA assays using Galapagos software’s ‘click and drag’ approach for setup and analysis, as well as offering a shaker/incubator and a microplate washer to complete the ELISA workflow.
Qosina introduced three new Hemostasis Valves with sideport tubing connection to a 3-way stopcock. The hemostasis valve features an automatic pre-slit seal, which eliminates the need for manual rotation.
BioTek announced a combination Hybrid multi-mode microplate reader and imaging system—the Cytation3 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader. Modular architecture allows users to select only what they need now, and upgrade with additional modes as their needs evolve.
Agilent introduced the latest version of its data-acquisition software for nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. The new software, VnmrJ 4.0, provides enhanced spectral quality with every measurement, along with all the tools necessary to make magnet, probe and console work together to generate optimal results.
Princeton Instruments launched new emICCD technology, available exclusively in its PI-MAX 4 camera platform. This camera combines the advantages of intensifiers (i.e., ultrashort, subnanosecond exposure times) and the benefits of EMCCDs (i.e., linear gain and high quantum efficiency) to provide single-photon sensitivity and quantitative performance for scientific imaging and spectroscopy applications.
The MicroSeal from Porvair Sciences is a compact manual microplate heat sealer. Of the various methods of sealing microplates, heating sealing has become the preferred option for many labs as it creates an air tight and chemically-resistant seal without the complications of adhesives being applied to a plate.
Hamilton Robotics introduces the PCR setup STARlet, an first automated liquid handling system that can accommodate any DNA amplification reagent kit, from simple setups to highly demanding workflows. The PCR setup STARlet is suitable for a wide range of applications such as gene expression, genotyping, sequencing, or mutagenesis.
Thermo Fisher Scientific offers a number of new chromatography consumables. Among them are several columns designed for improved analysis of chemical compounds. The company has added five phases to its family of Thermo Scientific Accucore solid core HPLC columns.
The CaptairBio PCR Workstations from Erlab use a UV lamp, which allows the working environment to be decontaminated in order to prevent contamination of samples. The filtration of the sterile housing is controlled by a fan that draws in air from the laboratory and passes it through a HEPA H14 filter, which is more than 99.995% effective at trapping particles 0.1 microns and higher.
