Since 1925, ATCC® has set the standard for the manufacture, characterization, preservation, storage and distribution of biological materials. With more than 85,000 microbial strains, ATCC® has the knowledge, experience and meticulous methodologies.
A wide variety of internally or externally threaded microtubes, cryovials, and specialty tubes such as those for spit collection, can be rapidly decapped and capped so that labs can work with tube volumes and types that are most appropriate for their specific application needs.
Astell Scientific’s new website features a new Product Finder tool to help visitors find the right autoclave, and better social media integration with feeds offering the latest news and tips.
For automated filling of Petri dishes and test tubes, the INTEGRA MEDIAJET can be used with virtually any brand, size or shape of plate with optimized media level saving money on costs.
Using externally threaded tubes for sample storage eliminates the possibility of the sample coming into contact with the screw thread.
One pipette, one tip, two volumes - dispense 1ml for pour plates and 0.1 ml for the spread plates then prepare next serial dilution.
Ideal for sensitive molecular assays, Rainin TerraRacks are available as ready-to-use, sterile tips in racks - choose between filtered or unfiltered tips.
Successful laboratory autoclave manufacturer Priorclave, has over 60 standard models in its current range including benchtop, top and front loading, as well as double-door and power-door autoclaves.
The VIAFLO 384 is the only benchtop pipette on the market, which allows easy and precise pipetting into 1536 well plates.
The controller software has been developed by Astell for the precision control of all its autoclaves and sterilizers and contains features designed to improve both the speed and management of load cycles.
Ready-to-use, disposable Merck EZ-Fit™ filtration units are intended for filtration of liquid samples such as water, raw materials, in-process samples and final products for bioburden testing.
Software allows a holistic approach to pipetting quality and pipette management - easy to implement and efficient to use, better enabling labs to generate consistent results.
For perfectly aligned pipette tips every time - INTEGRA GripTips never loosen, leak or fall off, the special design ensures tips cannot be overloaded and that all tips on the multichannel pipette are fitted to exactly the same height so improving the reproducibility and accuracy of your pipetting.
The hand held Gosselin™ Pipette Controller is ideally suited for pipetting tasks during microbiological sample preparation and testing, the controller incorporates a PTFE membrane filter (0.2 µm and 0.45 µm) together with an autoclavable silicone pipette holder prevents sample contamination issues.
Rainin Pipet-Lite™ XLS pipettes and filter tips are a popular choice for researchers at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute in La Jolla, USA, where they are used for virus work, particularly experiments involving DNA and RNA studies, and it is essential to avoid any potential for contamination.
Available in 4-, 6-, 8- and 12-channel versions, INTEGRA's VOYAGER II pipettes are the only commercially available pipette range where the tip spacing can be changed electronically, up to 40 individual custom programs can be saved making often repeated pipetting protocols even easier to implement.
Priorclave will be exhibiting their range of low energy laboratory autoclaves at Medica 2016, in Dusseldorf 14th - 17th November, an autoclave with a clear sided panel will allow stand visitors to see inside and view the clean, structured lines of the build.
Triclosan and other ingredients have been banned by the FDA from OTC hand washes and sanitizers, the decision does not yet apply to antibacterial products intended for use in healthcare situations which are still under investigation.
Don't have enough plates to justify a fully automated robotic liquid handling system but need to run assays in 1536-well plates? INTEGRA has a new plate holder that handles 1536-well pipetting using the adaptable, easy-to-use benchtop VIAFLO 384.
Suitable for homogenising a range of volumes from 80 to 400mL., the Gosselin S-Blender-1 quickly and accurately blends samples for microbiological testing of food, agricultural, chemical and cosmetic samples.
