Terra Universal, a leader in cleanrooms and controlled-environment equipment, announces a new, cleaner design of their BioSafe Glove Dispensers. The easy-to-clean back-mounted dispensers are designed to hinder microbial growth and minimize the accumulation of particles. The products are manufactured with aseptic electropolished stainless steel or durable polypropylene that stand up to the rigors of common cleaning agents.
AMSBIO has announced the launch of GMP grade STEM-CELLBANKER manufactured in strict compliance with Japanese, EU, US, and PICS good manufacturing practice guidelines. Supplied as a ready-to-use formulation, it is a chemically defined freezing solution optimized for stem cell and iPS cell storage as well as preservation of other valuable cells.
Leica Microsystems offers cameras that are designed for routine brightfield or fluorescence applications. The cameras are equipped with sensors dedicated to the respective applications that allow live images of up to 30 frames per second and a USB 3.0 interface for fast data transfer.
The ProEM-HS line of high-speed EMCCD cameras from Princeton Instruments have patented eXcelon3 technology (X3) for low-light imaging and spectroscopy applications.
Mantis Elite-Cam HD is the newest member of the Mantis family of "eyepiece-less" stereo microscopes. It brings stunning image and video capture capabilities to the outstanding optical performance of Mantis.
Single-pass tangential flow filtration (TFF) with Pellicon cassettes is an enhanced application of EMD Millipore’s existing TFF technology that allows concentration of process streams without the recirculation required in traditional TFF.
The HP D300 Digital Dispenser – available from Tecan – now allows customers to titrate low volumes of biomolecules in aqueous solutions, offering greater flexibility for drug discovery workflows. Users can choose between dispensing DMSO, for small molecule studies, and aqueous solutions in combination with a surfactant, for the investigation of proteins, antibodies, enzymes and nucleic acids.
ViroStat has released a new Rabbit Monoclonal Antibody to Candida. It reacts with all strains of C. albicans tested (12) and is reactive with the Candida species: C. albicans, C. parapsillosis, C. glabrata and C. tropicales. It is non-reactive with other fungi tested (12).
PrecisionAb Antibodies are a product line of rigorously tested primary antibodies validated for detection of endogenous proteins via western blot. Scientists have struggled with antibody unreliability for decades because manufacturing standards and quality control vary widely among vendors, targets, and even among antibody lots.
AB SCIEX introduced the AB SCIEX API 3200MD and 3200MD QTRAP LC/MS/MS systems— two devices that can be used to analyze trace levels of multiple compounds in human samples for diagnostic purposes. The 3200MD series is the first of a family of in vitro diagnostic devices that AB SCIEX plans to roll out.
Miniature, stepper driven valveless OEM Pumps from Fluid Metering Inc. (FMI) are ideal for low and micro-volume fluid control in medical diagnostic and clinical chemistry instrumentation.
Panlab’s Rota Rod provides an easy way to test the effects of drugs, brain damage, or diseases on motor coordination or fatigue resistance in rodents. The animal is placed in one of the rotating lanes of the Rota Road and the timer is started. Latency to fall (minutes and seconds) and rotational speed are automatically recorded.
The Echo qualified reservoir for the Echo 525 is a liquid handler source plate designed to enable convenient assay assembly and efficient large volume reagent transfers. The reservoir enables scientists performing genomic, proteomic and cell-based assays to reduce the use of costly reagents while achieving rapid fluid transfers.
Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc. announced the launch of its CFX Automation System II, a robotic plate handler that enables high-throughput, walk-away real-time PCR automation for all Bio-Rad CFX Real-Time PCR Detection Systems. The new system is ideally suited to meet the high-throughput real-time PCR requirements of today’s drug discovery and screening workflows by facilitating hands-off, around-the-clock data generation and analysis.
Oxford Gene Technology (OGT) released a new microarray designed to improve the accuracy and efficiency of cancer research. The CytoSure Cancer +SNP array (4x180k) combines long oligo array comparative genomic hybridisation (aCGH) probes with fully validated single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) content.
