Phenomenex Inc. announces the addition of a new 50 x 2.0 mm ID column to its Onyx monolith line. The 30% smaller dia column requires less sample volume and reduces solvent consumption.
Computing has revolutionized our testing capacity, but efficient design of experimentation remains a valuable tool for success.
Bryce Tappan and his brother grew up interested in science and were “partners in crime for all the backyard experiments,” he recalls.
From the late-1950s to now, R&D Magazine has been proud to provide you with new products and technologies. But, take a look at what’s still to come.
The biggest challenge for biology and medicine in the 21st century, as for most other scientific and engineering disciplines, is complexity.
Battelle scientists periodically prognosticate about future developments in science and technology. A sampling of predictions was prepared for the 50th Anniversary issue of R&D .
Clarity desalting tubes from Phenomenex have a purity level of about 70% with 80% target oligonucleotide recovery. They can be multiplexed using a vacuum manifold. Phenomenex Inc., www.phenomenex.
ZTEC Instruments’ ZT4210 oscilloscopes provide 1 GS/s sampling, on-board memory up to 256MB, direct inputs of +/- 300 Vpeak, input ranges from 1.25 mV/div to 40 V/div, four calculation and four non-volatile reference channels. ZTEC Instruments, http://www.ztecinstruments.
The PA1200t Label Printer/Applicator is automatic or semi-automatic. It can make labels from 3 inch x 1 inch to 4 inch x 6.5 inch sizes, and comes with a heavy-duty cylinder for high stress in side labeling. Tharo Systems, Inc, http://www.tharo.com/printer_applicators.
Tharo System's Portable Ductless Polypropylene Filter Box comes with a microprocessor controller that allows adjustment of airflow velocities and offers a variety of filters with a post-filter gas sensor. Energy waste and use are reduced. AirClean Systems, http://www.aircleansystems.
For the first time, say Penn State Univ. scientists, research has applied principles of magnetism to a study of non-magnetic materials and found that they exhibit certain magnetic properties. In particular, they exhibit roto second harmonic generation, which means the atoms themselves twist into a smaller position to save energy.
The M4000 series laboratory spectrometers provide a redesigned mirror drive board. The Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) benches feature 0.
Edstrom’s Ultrafilter Water Purification System can be used in new or existing animal watering systems. It employs hollow membrane technology and a carbon filter to block out viruses, bacteria, parasites, and chlorine, and can purify water without power for several days.
Varian’s 216-LC can be used in Fourier Transform mass spectrometry systems. It uses one flow sensor for each mobile phase, guarantees reproducible gradients, and delivers nanoliter flows to a mass spectrometer without discarding a lot of the solvent. Varian Inc., http://www.varianinc.
Low-consumption CS Series capacitive sensors include data cables and a 9V power adapter. The DS-2100 WiFi display, which can calibrate loads in pounds from 0.1 to 999.99, is able to connect wirelessly with LoadVUE software. Loadstar Sensors Inc., http://www.loadstarsensors.
