The Co-Mix is a compact mixer and vortexer from VITL supporting a variety of plate and tube formats for PCR preparation, cell culture and ELISA testing.
Tecan has introduced the Fluent laboratory automation solution, the latest addition to its laboratory automation portfolio.
GEA Niro Soavi has developed full skid homogenizers which are able to meet all the fundamental requirements of hygienic design and quality. In biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, the cell rupture process plays a critical stage. Although some substances are produced by cells or released by autolysis, the preparation of many others - including vaccines, therapeutics, diagnostics and enzymatic preparations - require the breaking of cells for the release of intracellular or subcellular material.
Benchmark Scientific offers the BeadBlaster 24 Microtube Homogenizer. The BeadBlaster 24 can grind, lyse, or homogenize up to 24 samples simultaneously. Tubes in the stainless steel tube carrier are subjected to an intense 3D motion, causing high energy impacts between the samples and microbeads to release their cellular contents.
Omega’s HMG-10 Series of laboratory homogenizers features a 144 watt, high-torque motor with a variable speed adjustment and a separate on/off switch. It manufactured from 316 stainless steel material.
The BULLET BLENDER Gold from Next Advance is designed for homogenizing samples while keeping them near 4°C. The latest addition to the family of Bullet Blenders, the Gold uses patented striking technology to enable thorough, consistent homogenization while dry ice cooling keeps samples cold.
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.
