Micronic launced the new Tracxer Code Reader TS201—a product for reading the 2D Data-Matrix codes of single 24-, 48- and 96-well format sample storage tubes. Incorporating proprietary 'keyboard wedge' functionality the Tracxer Code Reader TS201 is able to automatically scan and decode any 2D Data-Matrix code.
The new C5011 hollow fiber bioreactor cartridge from FiberCell Systems is optimized for maximum antibody production when used with the new FiberCell Systems Duet pump. This module can produce from 10 mgs to 100 mgs of antibody from a hybridoma cell line every two days, in a total volume of 20 mls, for as long as 6 months of continuous production or more.
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. introduced the Thermo Scientific HyClone HyCell-STEM and HyCell-STEM-FF stem cell culture media, designed to optimize the expansion rate of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) per passage for cell culture applications including cell signaling, drug discovery and therapeutic research.
To meet the needs of researchers seeking precise physiological culturing, Thermo Scientific offers the Heracell i range of CO2 incubators featuring variable oxygen control. Ideal for advanced applications in the area of stem cell research, regenerative and personalized medicine and other protocols that necessitate reduced oxygen concentrations, the incubator models are also available for hypoxic experimentation where oxygen levels above atmospheric levels are required.
The MIC-2500 Manual Stage from Applied Scientific Instrumentation is spring loaded; micrometer positioners push under tension for very precise and repeatable positioning. The MIC-2500 Stage is designed to have low drift with variations in Temperature.
PerFix-Expose and PerFix-nc, new reagent kits for intracellular staining from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences, minimize sample manipulation for a streamlined workflow that delivers high quality results. Developed for use on Beckman Coulter’s Gallios and Navios series flow cytometers and compatible with all Beckman Coulter Life Sciences’ fluorochromes, the kits enable a clear focus on the cytoplasmic and nuclear compartments of the cell.
Agilent Technologies introduced an enhanced version of its Dissolution Workstation Software, providing better data integration, method change control and instrument monitoring for controlling multiple dissolution systems.
JEOL USA offers the JEM-1400Plus, a 120kV Transmission Electron Microscope based on the JEM-1400. The new JEM-1400Plus TEM features high resolution/high contrast imaging and S/TEM analytical performance.
The Leica LMT260 XY Scanning Stage from Leica Microsystems is a high-precision scanning stage for stereo microscopes and macroscopes. To ensure successful experiments, it offers a repeatability of 0.25 mm for samples weighing less than 0.5 kg, and of 1 mm for heavier loads of 1.5 kg.
TandD Corp. has introduced the The TR-701, which comes in two versions. The TR-701NW, with integrated ethernet, and the TR-701AW, with wireless integrated 802.11b/g Wi-Fi.
Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics further expanded its clinical laboratory automation portfolio with the VersaCell X3 Solution. The newest model of the company’s longstanding VersaCell System, the new system now offers even more ways to help labs achieve the workflow benefits of automation without the space or budget considerations of a track-based solution.
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has launched the Thermo Scientific Barnstead GenPure xCAD Plus water purification system, featuring advanced technology that allows simultaneous dispensing from three remote dispensers for exceptional flexibility and ease of use in shared laboratory environments.
