The double O-ring design on the standard polyurethane cuffs allows users to quickly and easily change gloves to meet a variety of dexterity needs.
Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced the Truevolt Series digital multimeters (DMMs). The Agilent 34461A DMM is a direct replacement for the Agilent 34401A DMM, and was designed to make migration easy for current users of the 34401A. The Agilent 34460A offers users a basic entry point to the 6½ digit class of DMMs.
Waters Corp. has introduced CORTECS columns, a new family of high-performance, 1.6-micron, solid-core UltraPerformance LC columns. Available in C18, C18+ or HILIC chemistries, Waters offers the columns in 30 column configurations.
Vision Research has expanded its line of Phantom Miro cameras to include a ruggedized body style. The Phantom Miro R-Series is targeted at applications in harsh environments where the camera must survive high shock and vibration, as well as a range of operating temperatures.
Omega Engineering’s PR25CU RTD sensor incorporates a copper tip which provides an improved heat transfer path between the sensing element and the process conditions allowing for reduced response times and better temperature tracking.
Piezosystem jena has introduced the PZ 300 piezoelectric actuator-based z-axis elevator stage for standard and inverted microscopes. The monolithic stage design is free of mechanical play and offers a travel range of up to 300 microns with a step resolution of ±2.5 nm.
Kinetic Systems has introduced a new concept in vibration isolation for moving load applications—the Vibralevel DSM dual stiffness isolation mount. Providing the optimal combination of damping and vibration isolation, the Vibralevel DSM is an alternative to active vibration isolation systems.
Technology exists for removing heavy metals from drinking water, but often is too costly in developing countries. Scientists are now reporting the development of an inexpensive new material made of clay and papaya seeds removes harmful metals from water and could lower the cost of providing clean water to millions of people in the developing world.
FLIR Systems has introduced a new range of thermal imaging cameras optimized for industrial R&D applications. FLIR A3500sc/A6500sc series thermal imaging cameras incorporate a cooled 3 to 5 micron MW-IR detector. Achieving a high thermal sensitivity of <25 mK, the cameras are able to capture fine image details and temperature difference information.
Teledyne DALSA has introduced two new models—Shad-o-Box 512 HS and Shad-o-Box 1024 HS—in its Shad-o-Box x-ray detector product line. The models feature active areas of 10.4 by 6.9 cm (768 by 512 pixels) and 10.4 by 13.9 cm (768 by 1024 pixels), respectively. Both models use a 135 µm pixel size.
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has introduced a new-generation triple quadrupole liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) platform. The platform, which includes the Quantiva triple-stage quadrupole mass spectrometer and Endura triple-stage quadrupole mass spectrometer, made its debut at the ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics.
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments Inc. has introduced the MALDI-7090 MALDI TOF-TOF mass spectrometer targeted for proteomics and tissue imaging research. Innovative technology incorporated into the MALDI-7090, such as ASDF- axial spatial distribution focusing, delivers high-resolution MALDI MS/MS for accurate compound characterization.
Ocean Optics has introduced the HPX-2000-HP-DUV xenon light source, a powerful, 75-W short-arc lamp suitable for UV-Vis absorbance spectroscopy and other applications where a high-intensity lamp is necessary. The lamp provides continuous spectral output from 185 to 2,000 nm and has up to 2,000 hrs of bulb life.
