BrandTech introduces a selection of safety coated amber bottles to be used with the company’s Dispensette and seripettor dispensers and Titrette bottletop burettes. Bottles are made of soda-lime glass with a LDPE pouring ring and polypropylene screw cap.LISTED UNDER: Labware
Meissner introduces QuaDrum rigid outer containers designed to offer a square alternative to industry standard cylindrical drums. The unique footprint of the QuaDrum container maximizes floor space utilization.
Sarstedt has extended its range of DNA-free certified Forensic-Swabs to include new stem and length options. The original Forensic-Swab features a 95mm polystyrene-stemmed viscose swab assembled in a screw cap transport tube with integral ventilation membrane for self-drying within the tube.
Tecan’s Cavro Omni Robot has been incorporated into Applied Photophysics’ new protein discovery solution, the Chirascan-plus CD Spectrometer. This newly created system combines Tecan’s sample handling with measurement reproducibility.
Temperature Controlled Sample Holder studies vacuum-sensitive and vulnerable samples. This active sample holder is designed to control the temperature of the sample between -25°C and +50°C. The temperature of the sample is manipulated so the humidity around it can be controlled. This enables imaging of moistures and water containing samples as well as reducing the effect the electron beam has on beam sensitive samples.
Type 6624 Solenoid Valve combines the Rocker principle with an actuator. The TwinPower concept of this actuator reduces the size greatly with increased performance on a smaller profile. This creates a 10 mm wide medium isolated rocker valve with a 1.6 mm orifice and a pressure resistance of 2 bar (30 psi), providing the same performance as a traditional 16 mm valve.
Thermo Scientific Bioservative is a sample preservation matrix that does not require refrigeration. Bioservative ensures the cell viability of microbiological samples for up to seven days and delays the breakdown of RNA, DNA and peptides within a sample for up to 26 days.
The expanding breadth of automated applications requires simpler technology.
BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) announced the launch of the BD BACTEC SafePod, designed for the safe transportation of blood culture vials in pneumatic tube systems, and for safe transportation of positive blood cultures from satellite sites to a central laboratory.
The 0.5ml V-Bottom Cryotube from Micronic Europe enables Automated Biobanking and Cryobanking facilities to securely store low volume samples at temperatures below minus 80°C.
DENSO announced a new 2011 product catalog featuring the company’s entire line of compact, high-speed, industrial robots. The 62-page catalog, which can be downloaded as a PDF from the compay's Website.
Hamilton Robotics introduces the FlipTube for use on the company’s MICROLAB STAR and NIMBUS automated liquid handling platforms. This 1.5 mL polypropylene microcentrifuge tube features a snap-cap that can be automatically opened and closed using an independent pipetting channel, eliminating manual steps.
Dolomite has expanded its range of temperature control systems introducing the Hotplate Adaptor – Chip Holder H that allows control over internal temperatures of microfluidic chips without any disruptions to the fluid flow.
Meissner has addressed the need to have a repository of ready-to-use biocontainer designs by creating a Web-accessible “Standards Guide” for the pharmaceutical/biotech industries. The Standards Guide, featuring TepoFlex biocontainer designs, is available for immediate download at www.meissner.com.
Thermo Fisher Scientific introduced new 15ml and 50ml Thermo Scientific Nunc conical centrifuge tubes. Incorporating a new plastic rack design that is reusable, collapsible, and recyclable, the 15/50 ml tubes are offered with an environmentally friendly, space-saving storage solution.
