Alicat Scientific Inc. has introduced the MCD Series bidirectional mass flow and pressure controllers that precisely and rapidly control mass flow rate, volumetric flow rate and absolute pressure of gases in two flow directions. The controllers feature a flexible dual-valve design.
JPK Instruments has released its next generation of NanoWizard AFM systems, providing fast scanning and super-resolution on an inverted microscope. The fast-scanning NanoWizard ULTRA Speed AFM is important to users as it enables the tracking of changes in samples in real time, whether the sample be imaged in air or liquid.
JEOL Ltd. has announced a joint initiative between JEOL and Gatan that brings the power of Serial Block Face imaging to the JEOL family of scanning electron microscopes. Researchers are now able to image 3-D structures of biological and materials samples at ultra-high resolution using the JEOL JSM-7100F field emission scanning electron microscope with an integrated Gatan 3View Serial Block Face imaging system.
Phenomenex Inc. has introduced a new 30-nm internal diameter Kinetex core-shell 5-micron column in Axia hardware for preparative HPLC and SFC in pharmaceutical laboratory-scale purification. Also offered in a 21.2-mm internal diameter, the 30-mm column enables increased sample loading and throughput.
Thorlabs has introduced two fiber-coupled, broadband tungsten light sources (SLS201/SLS202), extending its broadband light sources product offering to spectroscopy for chemical, medical and biological analysis. The sources come in two versions, both featuring a constant intensity blackbody radiation spectrum that ranges from either 300 to 2,600 nm (tungsten-halogen) or 450 to 5,500 nm (tungsten).
Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced the Thermo Scientific Delta Ray isotope ratio infrared spectrometer. The Delta Ray system is an analyzer for the continuous measurement of isotope ratio values from carbon dioxide in ambient air. The ability to transport the system into the field enables scientists to continuously collect data.
Molecular Devices has introduced the SpectraMax MiniMax 300 imaging cytometer. The cytometer enables both cellular visualization and stain-free cell-based analysis on the field-upgradable SpectraMax i3 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader.
Promega Corp. has introduced the QuantiFluor ONE dsDNA system, a sensitive, dsDNA-specific fluorescent dye suitable for use in both research and clinical workflows. The dye system is integrated into the Promega Quantus fluorometer and GloMax detection instruments, but is compatible with many fluorometer capable of measuring the appropriate fluorescence excitation and emission spectra.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced its enhanced Thermo Scientific general-purpose centrifuge line. The centrifuges feature increased capacity and flexibility with rotor innovation including the new Thermo Scientific TX-1000 rotor, which employs a 4-L capacity in a traditional 3-L footprint.
Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced its 7500 atomic force microscope (AFM), an advanced instrument that achieves atomic resolution imaging with its 90 um AFM closed-loop scanner. The microscope platform is designed to extend the frontier of atomic force microscopy for academia and industry by offering high resolution and precise environmental and temperature control.
Designed for integration into spectroscopy instrumentation and medical devices where a small footprint is desired, the STS-UV microspectrometer, from Ocean Optics, is a compact and high-performance spectrometer. Measuring 40 mm by 42 mm and 24 mm high, the spectrometer is optimized for applications in the ultraviolet (190 to 650 nm).
Air Science USA has introduced its Safestore vented chemical storage cabinets for storage of noxious or odorous chemicals. The cabinets minimize health and environmental risks in handling chemical vapors and residues, VOCs and general laboratory functions.
Equipped with a new generation of drivers, the RM05-8A-S PCB mount reed relay module from Standex-Meder Electronics offers a 24% smaller footprint than the RM05-8A model. It is ideal for test and measurement, high frequency and telecommunications applications.
The new Dymax Model 300 dispensing system features a pneumatic, normally closed diaphragm valve that is designed for use with low- to medium-viscosity fluids. The valve’s diaphragm design prevents fluid from contacting the actuating components within the valve, reducing component damage and wear while extending the life of the valve.
The SteriMax Smart from WLD-TEC is suitable for most laboratories, anaerobic environments and safety cabinets. The sterilizer uses specifically focused infrared light which generates an infrared hotspot for sterilizing inoculating loops at a temperature of 650 to 1,100 C in 5 to 10 sec, without preheating.
