Columbia Research Lab’s Model SA-120RHT was designed as a measurement while drilling (MWD) sensor for use in downhole well service applications. Model SA-120RHT is a force balance accelerometer capable of operating at temperatures of up to 200°C under extreme shock and vibration conditions.
FEI Company released two dedicated scanning electron microscopes (SEMs) and a new software package for automated analysis of gunshot residues (GSR). The new GSR S50 and GSR F50 SEMs include the Magnum GSR software and specially-modified hardware to provide fully-automated analysis with improvements in speed, accuracy, and affordability.
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. announced the availability of the Thermo Scientific Cellomics Synaptogenesis High Content Screening (HCS) Reagent Kit. The kit enables simultaneous detection of neuronal population, neurite, pre-synaptic vesicle, post-synaptic puncta, and synapse using a fixed end-point assay that is based on immunofluorescence detection in cells grown on standard high-density microplates.
Saelig Company, Inc. announced the debut of CANatomBOX, a versatile, compact embedded controller targeted for Windows-based embedded CANbus control applications.
Today, developers of a new federal disaster response technology demonstrated how the Rapid Deployment Shelter System (RDSS) will shape the future of emergency preparedness and disaster relief. The compact, highly portable rigid wall shelter is easily transportable to domestic and global disaster sites, and may be deployed by one person in less than two minutes with the push of a button.
Athena Controls, Inc. has announced availability of their new improved Series IMP Modular Hot Runner Controller. Easy to set up and simple to use, the next generation Series IMP continues to provide injection molders with new and productive user benefits.
The 491M/B/SD modular gas standards generator blends VOC/TOC gas standards with parts-per-billion (ppb) and parts-per-trillion (ppt) analyte concentrations. Two modules provide two sequential stages of dilution.
This month's issue celebrates the 2009 R&D 100 Award winners.
The Mamba from Coherent Inc. is a 525 Watt (at 1064 nm), diode-pumped, solid-state laser that delivers an unmatched combination of high reliability, long lifetime, and minimal maintenance downtime, and is primarily intended for high throughput materials processing applications such as edge deletion of solar panels and ITO patterning.
Phenomenex Inc. introduced Kinetex—ultra-high performance LC columns based on the company’s new core-shell silica technology. Kinetex meets researchers’ need to improve results and increase productivity without large capital expenditures.
Solid Sealing Technology introduced two new series of high current connector solutions. These connectors are rated for currents from 69 to 250 amps and incorporate SST’s ceramic to metal sealing technology for use in ultra high vacuum, pressure, cryogenics, and gas/plasma processing applications.
The MulitCal 14 temperature calibrator is a compact, light weight, and easy to use hand-held temperature calibrator that measures and simulates DC voltage, resistance, thermocouples, and RTDs. This temperature calibrator can display 5 digits for measurements and 6 digits for source values.
The climate change bill has become the poor cousin of health care this summer, but that may soon change. The Senate will eventually vote on cap-and-trade, and already the technology stream is offering carbon storage solutions. Let’s just get used to it: carbon sequestration, like ethanol, will soon be big business.
The Temperature Products Group of Measurement Specialties (MEAS) announced the availability of surface mounted devices for varied contact temperature sensing applications. The Ni1000Si is a nickel thin film resistance temperature detector (RTD) that is suitable for use in contact sensing.
The Brookfield Falling Ball Viscometer measures viscosity in accordance with the test method defined in DIN 53015 (Höppler principle) to measure the viscosity of Newtonian liquid by measuring the time required for a ball to fall under gravity through a sample-filled tube.
