Prior Scientific introduces its latest motorized high precision microscope stage for upright microscopes—the H101F Flat Top Stage. The design of the H01F incorporates a completely flat top plate which eliminates any obstacle to objective rotation while ultra low profile sample holders facilitate the use of high NA objectives.
ZEISS recently presented its new Hardware Auto Focus and cleanroom kit for the Axio Imager Vario microscope system. An integratable autofocus system ensures fast and precise focusing. The Hardware Auto Focus is ideal for surface inspections on reflective, low-contrast samples.
Cambridge Epigenetix launched TrueMethyl kits. TrueMethyl provides quantitative, accurate and repeatable single-base resolution sequencing of the modified bases hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) and methylcytosine (5-mC).
The Genova Nano from Jenway is a highly versatile three-in-one life science, standard and micro-volume spectrophotometer for highly accurate measurement of DNA, RNA and other proteins.
The CLARiTY 11 Vis/NIR spectrophotometer from On-Line Instrument Systems, Inc. (OLIS) makes it possible to obtain accurate absorbance and fluorescence spectra from historically challenging turbid samples.
INTEGRA launched new single-use waste collection bottles for its VACUSIP benchtop aspiration system—a compact, portable solution for safe and convenient disposal of small volumes of biological liquid waste.
The Thermo Scientific Orion AquaMate 7000 and 8000 Series spectrophotometers enable water and wastewater lab operators to select UV-Vis wavelengths quickly and easily for accurate concentration measurements.
The IRTracer-100 Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectrophotometer from Shimadzu Corporation combines high speed, sensitivity and resolution with enhanced expandability and easy-to-use software.
Tecan’s newly launched AC Extraction Plate is an automation-friendly solution designed to streamline sample preparation for LC-MS analysis of small molecules. The plate, which is based on proprietary TICE (Tecan Immobilized Coating Extraction) technology, reduces the sample preparation process to a convenient ‘pipette and shake’ routine.
Porvair Sciences’ Chromatrap 96 HT is a 96-well chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) assay plate based on the novel spin-column ChIP technology. It is essentially 96 separate Chromatrap spin-columns in one device designed to enable researchers to perform up to 96 ChIP experiments in parallel.
CRAIC Technologies introduced the 20/30 XL UV-visible-NIR microspectrophotometer, which is designed to non-destructively analyze microscopic features of very large samples when integrated into large scale sample handling machinery.
The Leica TCS SP8 STED 3X, a new 3-D STED system from Leica Microsystems, achieves resolutions below the diffraction limit in lateral as well as axial directions.
Enzo’s high-efficiency BioArray conversion kits for detection of 5-mC and 5-hmC modifications (Express DNA Methylation Kit, Blood & Tissue DNA Methylation Kit, and BioArray 5-hmC Methylation Kit) allow for resolution of single-nucleotide changes without the introduction of DNA damage.
Bio-Rad Laboratories announced the availability of its new ddPCR library quantification kit for Ion Torrent library preparation. Used with Bio-Rad’s QX200 Droplet Digital PCR system, the new kit provides researchers with the ability to precisely and directly measure amplifiable library concentrations.
Extending its portfolio of super-resolution microscopy products, Leica launched the Leica SR GSD 3D, a widefield system that offers 2D and 3D super-resolution imaging of molecules and cellular structures. Based on GSD (Ground State Depletion) or dSTORM technology, the widefield fluorescence microscope attains resolutions of down to 20 nm in the lateral and 50 nm in the axial direction.
