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.
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.
