A USB to Ethernet converter device which enables the line of Avaspec USB controlled spectrometers to plug into an Ethernet connection. It provides instrument control and data acquisition and, via USB hub, can handle connection to between one and 16 spectrometers. A web-based configuration utility is provided.
Peak Scientific has introduced the Fusion 1010, a generator that provides both zero nitrogen and zero air in a single system. The new generator supports both GC-ECD and GC-FID applications and may also be used for THA applications. It essentially combines two technologies to produce zero nitrogen (ultra-high purity nitrogen with no hydrocarbons as methane) and zero air (air with no hydrocarbons as methane) from two separate outlets. The system produces high purity results, even in highly polluted environments and hydrocarbons will not cause any higher baselines. Other features include a “Rapid Start” function that allows the system to be operational again soon after a power cut and there is no need to recalibrate applications, giving consistent and reliable analysis results.
Pfeiffer Vacuum has brought a new series of magnetically levitated turbopumps named HiPace M to the market. They cover pumping speeds of 300 L s–1, 700 L s–1 and 800 L s–1 and achieve high compression ratios for all gases. Features include a special rotor design for unlimited rotor service life, achievement of Protection Class IP 54, which enables the pumps to be employed in industrial environments, a low dynamic field which does not interfere with sensitive nearby equipment, an integrated electronic drive unit which reduces the need for costly and cumbersome cabling, innovative technology which reduces power consumption, reduced run-up times, functional aluminium housings which make the pumps extremely light, an option sealing gas connection which safeguards bearings against particulate matter or oxidising gases and quiet, low-vibration operation.

The new SplitFlow 50 from Pfeiffer Vacuum is a small, powerful turbopump that is suitable for use in analytical applications.
Bruker Energy & Supercon Technologies, Inc. (BEST) has acquired the assets of AIXUV GmbH in Aachen, Germany, a company specialising in XUV/EUV systems and key components. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed, and AIXUV has been relocated to the BEST operations in Bergisch Gladbach.
A European research project has shown how to build optical sensors directly into the structure of labs-on-chips. The breakthrough paves the way for on-the-spot medical diagnostics.
Laboratories are often annoyingly noisy due to vacuum pump. Vacuum pumps (rotary, scroll) are typically required to maintain a vacuum on many lab devices. This noise makes working conditions around equipments uncomfortable and tiring for anyone who works in the lab. Vacuum pump enclosures from MS Noise can reduce this noise by half, by up to 12 decibels. The company offers a wide range of enclosures that fit virtually all vacuum pumps.
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.
