Carl Zeiss is expanding its ZEN software to drive all ZEISS light microscope systems. Users will experience one identical software interface for all their microscopy experiments. This offers synergies for research institutes using several microscopy technologies.
BD Medical, a segment of BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), announced the commercial launch of a new passive needle guard technology, BD UltraSafe PLUS. This product, in addition to offering needlestick safety, is enhanced with ergonomic features designed to facilitate comfort and support for healthcare providers and patients.
PI (Physik Instrumente) LP offers a variety of piezo-driven precision positioners for high resolution microscope applications.The PIFOC family of fast objective focusing devices provide nanometer precise focus control and are also used in in 3-D imaging and Z-stack image acquisition.
Cresset announced a new release of its XedTools package, including the next generation of the XED force field. The XedTools package contains command line utilities for studying molecular interactions using the XED molecular mechanics force field.
The Thermo Scientific TriPlus 300 Headspace Autosampler is designed for fast start-up, high productivity, and flexibility for analyzing organic volatiles. Throughput of this new valve-and-loop headspace autosampler is enhanced by its 120-vial sample tray capacity and large 18-vial incubation oven overlap capacity.
INTEGRA has reported how a clinical diagnostic laboratory has, using a VIAFLO 96 handheld electronic pipette, significantly improved the reproducibility and productivity with which it carries out Real-time PCR assays.
BD Diagnostics announced it received FDA clearance to market the BD MAX Cdiff Assay in the United States. The assay is performed on the fully-automated BD MAX System and is designed to rapidly and accurately detect the toxin B gene (tcdB), which has been shown to be essential to cause disease, in patients suspected of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI).
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments introduced the LCMS-8040, a triple quadrupole mass spectrometer, which combines newly improved ion optics and collision cell technology with proprietary technologies. This expands the application range and offers high-sensitivity, high-throughput analysis at lower levels of detection.
WITec launched StrobeLock, a time-correlated single photon counting measurement option. The imaging modes include Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging and Time-resolved Luminescence Microscopy, which can be integrated with the WITec alpha300 and alpha500 microscope series.
This new guide from Hugo-Sachs Elektronik-Harvard Apparatus GmbH, includes systems for all model species (mouse through pig), full respiratory mechanics in one system, new pig lung system for translational research and modular systems that allow custom configuration.
Elliot Scientific is now offering the new 20/30 PV Series UV-Vis-NIR Microspectrophotometer from CRAIC Technologies to scientists in the UK and Ireland.
Artemis CCD announced a new camera design specifically aimed at Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) of integrated imaging, spectroscopy, and other low light detection systems.
SeraCare Life Sciences has launched three new seroconversion panels that provide patient samples for Hepatitis B and HIV, expanding its existing line of seroconversion panels focusing on infectious disease.
Promega launched GenePrint 10 System for human cell line authentication and sample identification. GenePrint 10 includes the eight loci recommended by the ANSI Standard (ASN-0002) Authentication of Human Cell Lines: Standardization of STR Profiling, plus Amelogenin for gender identification and the highly polymorphic D21S11 locus for additional power of discrimination.
The Spectroline CL-150 Series UV workstations enable lab technicians to view, analyze and photograph fluorescent samples with both epi-illumination and trans-illumination light sources. A removable bottom panel allows either unit to be placed directly over the transilluminator.
