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.
Study demonstrates that the Tetracore Anthrax BioThreat Alert® Lateral Flow Assay is a robust and reliable assay that can be used to rapidly screen for the presence of Bacillus anthracis in an environmental sample.
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.
Sartorius Stedim Biotech launches two single-use Sartocon® Loop Assemblies with Integrated Polyethersulfone (PESU) Membrane Assemblies saving up to 60 percent on processing time and offer a safe approach to ultrafiltration of biologics and vaccines
