Owlstone launched launched its UltraFAIMS series of products, developed to enhance mass spectrometry (MS) by quickly simplifying complex mass spectra, separating isobaric ions and reducing background. UltraFAIMS is a miniaturized chip-based FAIMS (Field Asymmetric Ion Mobility Spectrometry) platform technology developed by Owlstone. It can be interfaced with mass spectrometers to provide an additional in-source separation stage for isobaric analytes, protein and peptide charge states, large and small proteins, isomers and conformers.
Agilent introduced a new triple quadrupole mass spectrometer that is designed for LC/MS applications requiring the highest sensitivity and robustness. The Agilent 6495 LC/MS Triple Quadrupole system is fully integrated with Agilent’s 1200 series UHPLC systems to deliver turnkey performance.
Harvard Apparatus offers the Pump 11 Elite Glucose Clamp Infusion System for academic euglycemic or hyperglycemic glucose clamp studies. The Pump 11 Elite Glucose Clamp Infusion System is a time saving syringe pump enhancement that offers eased set-up using a touch screen display. The built-in software capabilities reduce the potential for error by providing accurate fluid delivery.
Waters introduced two new Xevo mass spectrometers and expanded the ionKey/MS System at the 62nd conference of the American Society of Mass Spectrometry (ASMS). The Waters Xevo G2-XS mass spectrometer is a new high performance benchtop quadrupole time-of-flight (QTof) mass spectrometer, while the Xevo TQ-S micro is a compact benchtop tandem quadrupole mass spectrometer.
Laboratories analyzing food, the environment, and biological samples for compounds like dioxins, PCBs, pesticides, steroids and other challenging analytes now have access to a new generation of GC-MS/MS from Thermo Fisher Scientific, designed to deliver more sensitivity at faster speeds than its predecessor.
AB SCIEX introduced the TripleTOF 6600 system with SWATH Acquisition 2.0—the company’s solution for quantitative proteomics. This high-resolution, accurate-mass system, combined with the new SWATH Acquisition 2.0, brings new power to proteomic data challenges for advanced biomarker discovery and systems biology.
Seahorse Bioscience introduces the XFp Extracellular Flux Analyzer—an extension to the XF product platform. Seahorse Extracellular Flux (XF) Analyzers perform real time ‘stress tests’ of the two major energy-producing pathways of the cell mitochondrial respiration and glycolysis—detecting important changes in metabolism.
Biophoretics offers a modular capillary electrophoresis with multiple detection and throughput modules. The plug-n-play design provides for upgrades adaptable to changing laboratory needs. Three preset configurations are available; manual, semi-automatic and automatic.
Bio-Rad Laboratories offers TGX FastCast acrylamide and TGX Stain-Free FastCast acrylamide kits, which provide handcast gel users access to Bio-Rad’s TGX gel chemistry, previously available only in precast gels. The TGX FastCast kits allow users to hand cast polyacrylamide gels with fast run times, efficient protein transfers, and consistent, reproducible results.
The CESI 8000 System for Biologics Characterization from AB Sciex, a separation-electrospray ionization system for mass spectrometry (MS), combines of capillary electrophoresis (CE) and electrospray ionization (ESI) technologies to create an integrated workflow solution.
Sage Science‘s Pippin Pulse electrophoresis power supply brings field inversion to agarose gel apparatus. The system resolves DNA to 100 kb and beyond, without unwieldy instrumentation and chillers. Pulsed-field protocols are programmed by users and run from a PC.
A new line of general purpose water baths that combine temperature control with full-featured digital functionality and ease of operation is now available from PolyScience. Designed to accommodate a wide variety of clinical and laboratory applications, these water baths maintain bath temperatures from ambient +5° to 99.9°C with ±0.1° stability and ±0.2°C uniformity.
The Leica DMi1 from Leica Microsystems is an entry-level inverted microscope with functions specifically necessary for routine lab work and enables cell biologists to check and document cell and tissue cultures within seconds.
The Hoefer PS600 is a 600-volt midrange power supply unit designed for electrophoresis and blotting techniques, including large format and high throughput applications.
