Photonis has introduced a new Microchannel plate product group, optimised for time-of-flight mass spectrometry measurements. The TruFlite products are designed to reduce two of the most common issues with instrumentperformance in ToF mass spectrometry: ion arrival time and time jitter. The TruFlite line optimises surface flatness of the MCP and channel size and bias angle to improve the resolution. The TruFlite line will be offered in both 18 mm and 25 mm active areas, and custom detector assemblies.
Sacher Lasertechnik have released a new website including new features and services, including an interactive online store and video clips related to products. www.sacher-laser.com
Newport Corporation has introduced three new additions to its series of thermopile detectors. The 818P-500-55 is a fan-cooled detector which can handle up to 500 W of continuous optical power. This device also features a 55 mm diameter active area and very flat responses in an extended wavelength range from 0.9 µm to 20 µm.
The Opto Diode Corporation has announced the new OD-624L high output red LED. This second product to be introduced to the company's series of LEDs has a dominant emission wavelength at 624 nm and features a narrow beam angle that is suitable for fluorescence in medical, scientific testing instruments and forensic applications.
PerkinElmer has announced a suite of hyphenated solutions for evolved gas analysis, providing laboratories ranging from pharmaceutical and polymer to academia and chemical, with solutions for enhanced safety and quality. Hyphenated technologies for EGA enable scientists to determine how materials respond to heat.
Biochrom has introduced its Asys UVM340 microplate reader. The monochromator-based plate reader selects any wavelength between 340 nm and 800 nm at 1 nm intervals to measure absorbance.
The new Tandem II from Bruker Optics is a fully automatic tablet testing system for on-line pharmaceutical process monitoring solutions, combining FT-NIR spectroscopy for tablet content uniformity and physical tablet tests of weight, thickness, diameter and hardness.
MKS Instruments has introduced Microvision 2 and e-Vision 2 web-enabled residual gas analysers for greater stability and reliability in e-diagnostic, process monitoring and general vacuum trouble-shooting applications.
Newport Corporation's Oriel Instruments division has announced the Oriel IQE-200, which allows simultaneous measurements of both the external and internal quantum efficiency of solar cells, detectors or any photon-to-charge converting devices.
JPK Instruments has announced the latest of its nanotechnology characterisation systems, the ForceRobot 300, for single molecule force spectroscopy.
Laser 2000 has presented a new line of "light engines" designed to replace traditional light sources in optical instrumentation and, in particular, for bio-analytical applications.
Two new nitrogen generators, the ABN2ZA and the AB-3G, have been introduced by Peak Scientific. Both are specifically designed to operate LC-MS instruments manufactured by Applied Biosystems/MDS Sciex, producing nitrogen and dry air through three independent outputs at the required flow rates, purities and pressures.
Supercritical Fluid Technologies has launched the SFT-100XW supercritical fluid extraction system. This new, mid-scale SFE was developed to investigate the feasibility of applying supercritical fluid techniques to various analyses, processing challenges and QC/QA applications.
Starna Scientific has introduced an updated customer feedback system to assist compliance with ISO 17025:2005 guidelines. www.starna.com
The K1 re-circulating chiller from Applied Thermal Control has been designed to meet the cooling needs of today's high-tech instrumentation. The new robust design improves ruggedness without compromising its appearance. The machine delivers 1.75 kW of cooling power with a temperature precision of ±0.1°C, in a compact 520 mm × 420 mm footprint. The unit has high/low temperature alarms, fluid level and flow and pressure indicators fitted as standard. The K1 is provided with a choice of pumps to meet all flow rate requirements and also comes with a two-year guarantee.
Biochrom has launched the Anthos instant microplate solution (AIMS), a new package which contains all microplate instrumentation needed to run ELISA and other microplate-based applications. It is suitable for laboratories that handle a large number of absorbance-based assays which also need flexibility for future techniques. The package includes the Zenyth 200 microplate reader with cuvette UV-vis spectrophotometer, which is a monochromator-based instrument that reads 6–384 well plates at any wavelength between 190 nm and 100 nm, with temperature control. The built-in spectrophotometer saves bench space and there are pre-programmed cuvette methods for nucleic acid and protein measurements. The Fluido 2 four-channel microplate washer, which handles up to four different wash buffers, up to 50 different programs and 20 different plate types—including strip plates and round bottom wells. In addition, the package contains ADAP Prisma PC analysis software and a laser printer free of charge.
The new DSC-Raman system from PerkinElmer combines thermal analysis with Raman spectroscopy to provide greater insight into material changes at a molecular level. It combines the double furnace DSC 8500 with the RamanStation 400 spectrometer, enabling simultaneous analysis of chemical and structural information from the spectrometer and correlating it with the calorimetric data of the DSC. Tests using the hyphenated techniques have given greater insight into polymer crystallisation, drug–carrier interactions, curing and polymorphic changes.
The Ortec business unit of Ametek has introduced the DigiDart-LF, a portable multi-channel analyser for sodium iodide, lanthanum bromide and other scintillation detectors. The rugged, lightweight analyser is completely operable without a PC and can perform a variety of measurements directly in the field or on site, storing a large amount of spectra in an internal memory. Its built-in backlit LCD display and control keypad create a live display as data is acquired and its advanced low-power design provides digital stability, high data throughput and up to 12 hours of operational life from a single battery.Issue: 21/05 RSN: 113 More information via
Alfa Aesar has published a new Research Chemicals Addendum that includes products which have been added since the publication of the 2008/2009 full line catalogue. The new addendum features over 400 new products, many of which are novel fine organics, including new boronic acids, silanes and silanols, chiral diamines and fluorochemicals. Other new products include nanomaterials, pure metals, alloys and analytical standards. Many of the new products in this catalogue are only available from the company.Alfa Aesar Issue: 21/05 RSN: 142 More information via
The new Techne catalogue introduces new cooling products and the company's extended thermal cycler range. Over 50 full colour pages illustrate their temperature control and science equipment for life sciences, research, clinical and general laboratories. Two significant additions in the new catalogue will solve sample-cooling problems in many labs. The N°ICE electronic ice bucket contains ceramic-coated beads to support any shape vessel and the BL°CKICE cools tubes held in two Dri-Block inserts. Both maintain a set temperature in the 0°C to 40°C range. Their range of personal thermal cyclers is joined by the expanded capacity TC-3000X and the TC-3000F, a small gradient model. Users of standard thermal cyclers will welcome the appearance of the new-look TC-4000 and TC-5000. Also included in the Techne range are temperature-controlled water baths, Dri-Block heaters, cell culture equipment and molecular biology products such as hybridisation incubators.
