The Heavy Duty Linear Abraser can evaluate material properties of finished products with a rugged, durable surface finish.
Freeslate, Inc. launched its third generation Core Module automation system (CM3); designed to optimize workflow integration, it enables scientists to leverage a single automated platform to run a diverse array of laboratory applications.
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. announced the new Thermo Scientific Wellwash and Wellwash Versa strip washers. Both models feature a large, easy-to-use, icon-based, graphic user-interface, available in eight languages, as well as a context-sensitive help feature.
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. introduced the new Thermo Scientific Multiskan GO UV-Vis spectrophotometer offering free wavelength selection for both 96- and 384-well plates and various types of cuvettes.
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. announced a new smaller-capacity Thermo Scientific Midi 40 CO 2 incubator.
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. will highlight key products within its portfolio of Thermo Scientific Revco high-performance lab refrigerators and freezers with solutions covering +4 °C to -196 °C.
To say there’s been some resistance in the scientific community to the idea of cold fusion is like saying that health-care bill narrowly passed in the U.S. House of Representatives is polarizing. It’s an understatement and a half. But now, 21 years later, cold fusion is back.
AMETEK Calibration Instruments has added the JOFRA RTC-700, to its RTC series of advanced dry-block reference temperature calibrators.
Boekel Scientific introduced a new orbital shaker that offers a variety of accessory options to accommodate a wide range of mixing requirements.
The AQUACOUNTER HG-400 Mercury Analyzer provides accuracy and sensitivity through an improved optical flow path optimization and is suited for trace levels of mercury detection.
Supercritical Fluid Technologies introduced a new series of stirred reactors for high pressure chemistry. The HPR Series Reactors have been designed for researchers who are interested in performing pressurized chemical reactions in their laboratories.
At the AudiologyNOW! 2010 show in San Diego next month, UK-based coatings company P2i will display their relatively new Aridion liquid-repellant nano-coating. Designed for exposure to humidity or sweat, the polymer layer is applied by a pulsed ion gas process that lower’s the hearing aid’s surface energy, coaxing water away from delicate components.
Scientists already know that some types of bacteria can alter uranium (VI)—a radioactive, toxic, and water-soluble relic of the Cold War era—into uranium (IV)—insoluble, stationary, and less harmful. Argonne Lab studies are beginning to unlock this pathway, but because bacteria interact with so many other elements, harnessing their abilities will prove difficult.
Oxford Instruments America, Inc.’s Magnetic Resonance Group released the second generation of its MQC analyzers.
BioDiscovery Inc. released ImaGene 9.0 for microarray image analysis. The new features include improved memory performance for the latest high density arrays, streamlined processing pipeline focused on image quantification and intensity extraction, and new modular design with options to add modules for analysis of gene/miRNA expression or CGH data.
