Agilent Technologies introduced a new Cary 60 UV-Vis, using xenon flash lamp technology, with improved performance, ease-of-use, and sample handling.
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.
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.
