The new release of Insight and Insight for Excel enhance scientific data analysis with important new capabilities, continuing the rapid evolution of next-generation solutions for interactively searching, browsing and visualizing data within the Cheminformatics Suite.
Porvair Sciences released a new five-layer cell culture flask developed to fulfil the need of the growing number of applications that require large numbers of cells. While single layer flasks are well proven for small-scale cell culture scale up, their use can become laborious and time-consuming when large numbers of cells are required.
The new WITec Suite software is now available for all WITec imaging systems. It was specifically developed to acquire and process large data volumes of large-area, high-resolution measurements and 3-D imaging while providing speed, performance and usability.
The Ozilla from AMSBIO is a purpose-built ozone gas generator. Measuring 13 x 11 x 5 inches (32 x 28 x 13 cm), it will fit in most standard laboratory cell culture incubators, air incubators, cell culture hoods, PCR hoods, or any other environment where a sterile atmosphere is critical.
Thermo Scientific SampleManager 11 is a configurable version of one of the company’s laboratory information management systems (LIMS). SampleManager 11 users can build workflows to reflect their individual laboratory processes and take ownership of workflow management, allowing them to be synchronized with the changing requirements of the lab, all without specialist IT intervention.
Spectronics’ Slimline Series UV transilluminator measures 11 ½ x 14 x 2 ¼ inches (29.2 x 35.6 x 5.7 cm), the size of the average laptop, and delivers a typical peak 312nm intensity of 9,000μW/cm2 at the filter surface. It’s ideal for visualization and photodocumentation of mini gels. A unique diffusing screen ensures light distribution and eliminates confusing light striations caused by the contours of the tubes.
Biacore T200 Software v.2.0 from GE Healthcare enhances the capabilities of Biacore T200, offering researchers a tool for efficient processing of molecular interaction data. Together, they facilitate label-free screening of low molecular weight compounds and low abundance proteins, giving detailed binding profiles on molecule-drug candidate mechanisms of action that ultimately assist in earlier lead selection and optimization.
For biobanks and laboratories looking to securely organize and track stored samples, the new version 4.903 Track-IT Information management system from Micronic enables users to scan tube codes directly into the software.
The Axio Scan.Z1, an automated microscope from Carl Zeiss Microscopy, allows researchers to digitalize fixed tissue sections and cytologic specimens in bright-field and fluorescence. As many as 100 microscope slides can be digitized at one time. The Axio Scan.Z1 captures the entire specimen area of the microscope slide, including the edge.
Sartorius introduces the new Entris, a balance that focuses on the most commonly used weighing applications and dispenses with costly additional functions. The Entris analytical and precision balance is available in 15 models, covering a weighing capacity from 60 g to 8,200 g with a readability of 0.1 mg to 0.1 g.
Suited for researchers in the area of oncology, infectious disease, drug discovery, efficacy, and/or toxicology research, PerkinElmer’s IVIS Lumina series III integrates bioluminescence and full spectral fluorescence in vivo imaging technologies, providing an expandable and sensitive benchtop imaging system.
Pall Corporation offers the XRS 20 Bioreactor System, a bioreactor with unique agitation properties that incorporates a single-use, easy-to-use Allegro 3-D biocontainer. This next generation “rocker” bioreactor is designed for cultivation of mammalian cells in suspension culture.
Cellexus manufactures the CellMaker, a single-use, disposable, airlift bioreactor system. The Cellexus technology applies airlift methodology designed to simplify cell culture and fermentation in bioresearch, scale-up, production and manufacturing.
Life science researchers who want to broaden their cell analysis capabilities can now employ a next-generation flow cytometer with a modular design that provides flexibility in applications ranging from biomarker discovery to cancer research. The Life Technologies Attune NxT Acoustic Focusing Cytometer uses a proprietary acoustic focusing technology to increase detection sensitivity and throughput.
Wheaton and Irvine Scientific have collaborated to introduce a high yield, small-scale solution for bioproduction. The solution consists of a Wheaton CELLine bioreactor flask paired with Irvine Scientific’s BalanCD CHO Growth A animal component-free, chemically-defined medium.
