It supports multiple instrument vendor file formats and techniques (IR, Raman, NIR, NMR, MS, UV-Vis).
AMSBIO announces ClioCell—an ex vivo device for removal of dying and dead cells, improving viability and quality of cell populations and their subsequent productivity. The system comprises super-paramagnetic nanoparticles, which have been coupled with proprietary elements that bind to dead and dying cells and cell debris.
AgileBio released a new version of its Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN), a complimentary application for its LIMS, LabCollector. ELN is designed to store, organize, find and share all researchers’ laboratory experiments in a variety of life sciences and other industries as well as in academic research laboratories.
Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc. launched the QX200 Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR) system, the second generation of the company's ddPCR technology. The system is the only digital PCR system that works with EvaGreen and TaqMan hydrolysis probes (reagents that are used with the instrument) to provide users more flexibility in the design of their digital PCR experiments.
Adopting a standard ANSI / SLAS footprint, INTEGRA 384-well reagent reservoirs (100ml) are fully compatible with all liquid handling systems including the company’s VIAFLO 384 handheld multichannel electronic pipette. 384 individual pyramidal indentations in each reagent reservoir allow maximum liquid recovery when using a VIAFLO 384 electronic pipette as well as other platforms.
Tecan offers the TouchTools PCR Wizard, an add-on to Freedom EVOware offering automation of PCR reaction set-up on Freedom EVO platforms. This new tool simplifies the set-up of applications—including end-point, real-time and multiplex PCR, sequencing, genotyping and gene expression, as well as pathogen and mutagenesis detection.
MagSi-DNA cleanFIX from AMSBIO offers a solution for purifying DNA fragments, removing all unwanted side products and reagents, such as single nucleotides, terminator dyes, primers and primer dimers, enzymes, buffers, and salts.
CORTECS Columns from Waters Corporation are new 1.6 micron solid-core UltraPerformance LC Columns that set a new standard in LC column performance. The higher efficiency brought with the columns allows laboratories to produce greater amounts of information faster with every chromatographic separation.
Torrey Pines Scientific offers the EchoTherm HPLC Column Heater Model CO20. The temperature range is from room temperature to 90.0°C readable and settable to 0.1°C. The PID temperature control software regulates temperatures to ±0.1°C. Temperature accuracy and stability are ±0.1ºC with a stable temperature indicator lamp on the front panel that lights when the target temperature is stable to within ±0.2ºC.
