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.
Finding ways to diagnose cancer earlier could greatly improve the chances of survival for many patients. One way to do this is to look for specific proteins secreted by cancer cells, which circulate in the bloodstream. However, the quantity of these biomarkers is so low that detecting them has proven difficult. A new technology may help to make biomarker detection much easier.
Bruker offers CMC-assist, a new software tool that provides routine NMR users with seamless support in their daily workflow of spectral interpretation.
Agilent Technologies announced the release of VnmrJ 3.2, enhancing this software for nuclear magnetic spectroscopy in a number of significant ways. With the release of VnmrJ 3.2, Agilent now offers a data station version that runs on Windows and Mac OS in addition to Linux.
The Spectroline E-Series lamps feature corrosion-resistant, specular-aluminum reflectors to optimize UV irradiance. These compact, lightweight lamps can be carried to wherever they are needed, saving lab personnel trips to the darkroom, for example, to use a UV transilluminator.
Agilent Technologies introduced a new Cary 60 UV-Vis, using xenon flash lamp technology, with improved performance, ease-of-use, and sample handling.
Thermo Fisher Scientific introduced four Thermo Scientific Pierce Calibration Solutions for the calibration of Thermo Scientific Mass Spectrometers, including the Thermo Scientific LTQ Orbitrap series and the Thermo Scientific TSQ Vantage series.
The new EDX-LE from Shimadzu Scientific Instruments is an energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) fluorescence spectrometer designed specifically for screening elements regulated by RoHS/ELV directives.
The Spectroline MiniMAX UV-5G is the a compact lamp designed for many laboratory applications including UV sanitizing of disease-causing microorganisms and UV degradation studies.
Symbion Systems released its SII-AN03 Third Generation Driver for the Applied Instrument Technology’s Analect FTIR spectrometers. The new driver integrates all of the functions of the Analect instruments into the Symbion-DX and RX analytical instrument software suites.
The new Metrohm 887 UV/VIS detector is paired with an 881 Ion Chromatograph and Dosino PCR delivery system for ultra-low determination of hexavalent chromium. Calibration levels down to 12.5 ppt.
Analysis of one- to four-microliter size samples for nucleic acids has become routine in many life science laboratories. However, until now, available instruments require considerable manipulation of the instrument and sample; some require manually recording the data. The user must typically lower and raise the arm manually, then wipe the sample manually from the target after each analysis. And fiberoptics used in some of these instruments are subject to deterioration.
The 45-MHz picoSpin spectrometer from Cole-Parmer resolves proton chemical shifts with a resolution of 100 parts per billion using a very small sample volume of less than 20 microliters.
PerkinElmer announced the launch of the Frontier Infrared Spectrometer, a high performance infrared (FT-IR) spectrometer. Part of a new family of spectrometers, the Frontier analytical platform meets diverse FT-IR challenges ranging from everyday measurements to the most advanced, complex analyses.
CRAIC Technologies introduced the automated version of its flagship product: the 20/20 Perfect Vision UV-visible-NIR microspectrophotometer. This system is designed to be fully programmable with touchscreen controls so that it can automatically analyze microscopic samples with UV-visible-NIR spectroscopy and microscopy.
