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.
Labplas' RACK’N’LAB is a light weight versatile rack which allows sample bags to be held upright without the need for bottles or specially designed bags. Marked rows allows samples to be easily identified whilst being held securely reducing risk of spillage.
NCIMB has launched a new improved website making it possible to submit forms on-line for microbial identification. make a patent deposit or submit a new accession to the National Collection of Industrial Food and Marine Bacteria.
A new range of autoclaves from Astell have improved appearance, operation and functionality, capacities range from 120L-344L.
Part of Priorclave's established Q63 range, the new 400 litre autoclave offers an affordable, energy conscious and versatile laboratory steam steriliser, the taller chamber profile makes it ideal for any lab needing to sterilise large, bulky items.
The VOYAGER II is the only pipette where the tip spacing can be changed electronically, spacing can be conveniently changed as you are pipetting using only a single hand.
The VOYAGER II is the only commercially available pipette range where the tip spacing can be changed electronically. using a VOYAGER II pipette the number of transfer steps, compared to using single channel pipettes, can be significantly reduced.
Cherwell will be attending two National Conferences in September to demonstrate their product range, offer practical advice and discuss customer-specific requirements for both NHS and industrial pharmaceutical manufacturers.
The new compact C85 laboratory autoclave (footprint just 472 x 500mm) has an 85 litre chamber and operates from a 13A single-phase supply, ideally suited for sterilising taller items such as fermentors and large capacity Erlenmeyer flasks or for large loads.
Increase lab productivity, reduce contamination risk and ensure correct diluent volumes every time, with the Gosselin S-Diuter -1 automated sample dilution suitable for a range of sample sizes from 50 ml. to 400 ml.
