Pall Corporation launched the Sentino Filter Dispenser to simplify membrane handling and maximize workflow in high throughput microbiology testing laboratories.
The Secura laboratory balance developed by Sartorius for applications in regulated areas such as pharmaceutical labs fulfills particularly high reliability requirements. The balance monitors its ambient conditions automatically, thereby preventing handling errors.
The PolyScience line of heated circulating water baths, available in 23 different models, can achieve temperatures as high as 200 degrees Celsius with temperature stabilities as exacting as ±0.005 degrees Celsius.
The compact, lightweight CM-10MP mini viewing cabinet from Spectronics is designed for any type of life science application requiring high-contrast fluorescence analysis. The cabinets weigh 4 lbs. (1.8 kg) and features dimensions of 8.75W x 10L x 4.5”H (22.2W x 25.4L x 11.4 cm H).
Just like your home, every lab has need of appliances that clean instruments and glassware or freezes and stores samples. The following products represent just some of the tools available from vendors to assist researchers in these needs.
Porvair Sciences announced a new version of its MiniVap Blowdown Evaporator able to safely remove solvent from up to 48 vials in parallel. Made from solvent resistant black polypropylene the new MiniVap Vial Holder has been designed to accommodate up to 48 vials in a standard SLAS / ANSI format.
Miele offers System4Lab—a glassware washer, which includes a competent machine, the right detergents, service, and application support for the life of the machine. System 4Lab is Miele’s complete solution for reprocessing glassware and includes four components.
A line of low temperature coolers that provide cooling of liquids to temperatures as low as -100°C is available from PolyScience. Available in both immersion probe and flow through styles, these compact systems are ideal for cooling exothermic reactions, freeze point determinations, freeze drying, impact testing, lyophilization, and vapor and solvent trapping.
Benchmark Scientific introduced the BeadBlaster 24 Microtube Homogenizer to its line. The BeadBlaster 24 can grind, lyse, or homogenize up to 24 samples simultaneously. Tubes in the stainless steel tube carrier are subjected to an intense 3D motion, causing high energy impacts between the samples and microbeads to release their cellular contents.
TECA introduces a benchtop Liquid-Cooled Cascaded Cold Plate System for ultra-low temperature cooling. The LHP-1200CAS provides direct contact cooling down to -70°C. Designed for laboratory use, the LHP-1200CAS offers versatility and precise control. It can be used to cool components, materials, chemicals, and samples.
Qosina added an Anti-Slip Boot (#51599) to its line of stock components. The new Anti-Slip Boot helps prevent luer fittings from slipping apart, and works with most standard luer fittings. It is made from medical grade silicone and applicable for autoclave, gamma and EtO sterilizing.
Coherent introduced a new range of fiber-pigtailed (FP) lasers into its portfolio of FP products. The new Sapphire FP lasers are compact, CW, visible lasers that offer a combination of low noise and output stability. These lasers are available at seven wavelengths (458 nm, 488 nm, 514 nm, 532 nm, 552 nm, 561 nm and 588 nm), at output powers of up to 120 mW.
Designed to enable labs to process samples simply and productively the INTEGRA VIAFLO 384 is a handheld 384-channel electronic pipette that enables precise transfer of 384 samples simultaneously. The VIAFLO 384 offers increased sample throughput as well as lower sample and reagent use without the expense of having to invest in a robotic liquid handling system.
Artel’s MVS Multichannel Verification System is designed to make it easier for laboratory technicians to boost liquid handling quality, productivity and—if needed—compliance, without impeding efficiency.
