The battery operated portable analysers can quickly and easily measure percentage biodiesel in diesel fuel to levels as low as 0.025%, the level of oil in cooling water, the level of water in lubrication fluids and degree of oxidation of lubricants or fuel. The Pal analyser, a benchtop version, is available for customers not requiring battery operation or portability.
Wilks Enterprise has introduced a portable infrared analyser that determines the presence of biodiesel in diesel fuel deliveries for standby generators in less than a minute. Weighing less than 5lb, the Infracal analyser can be operated from a battery pack or a cigarette lighter adapter cable, making it suitable for use in a field environment. The ASTM Method D 975 currently allows up to 5% of biodiesel in diesel without the need for content labelling. Therefore it is necessary for operators to determine whether fuel deliveries contain biodiesel. The analyser provides blend ratio measurements of diesel fuel and will detect down to 0.2% biodiesel. An internal calibration table allows the analyser to directly read out the percentage of biodiesel and provides the user with the capability to quickly measure the fuel on site to ensure its purity.
Foss has extended the availability of its software functionality that helps to spot adulterated raw milk. The software allows MilkoScan analysers, based on FT-IR technology, to be programmed to give a warning of possible abnormalities in raw milk samples. The analyser does not identify specific contaminants, but helps to identify a suspect raw milk sample quickly. The sample can then be analysed further to determine the contaminant.
FlexiMass DS are new, cost-effective disposable targets for MALDI analysis which have been developed by Shimadzu Biotech.

Ionicon introduces the new PTR-TOFMS series, with the launch of the PTR-TOF 2000 and PTR-TOF 8000. Using a specially designed orthogonal acceleration reflectron time-of-flight (W-ToF) mass spectrometer combined with proton transfer reaction (PTR) technology, the PTR-TOF 8000 has a mass resolution of up to 8000 and a limit of detection <10 pptv. The ToF component gives the ability to analyse a whole mass spectrum in a fraction of a second and even isobaric species can be resolved and identified with virtually no instrumental mass range limitation and a linearity range over six orders of magnitude. The PTR-TOF 2000 has high sensitivity and a detection limit in the single-digit pptv-range. It provides results in real-time with a mass resolution of up to 2000. The PTR-TOF 2000 uses a new compact orthogonal acceleration reflectron ToF analyser. Up to 300 cps/ppb and less than 5 pptv detection limit together are achievable.
Shimadzu Scientific has introduced SeqLab de novo sequencing software for use with their Axima line of MALDI mass spectrometers. With the software, researchers can use MS/MS data to find high-quality de novo sequences and tags for peptides from low- to high- energy CID MS/MS data, including data from the Performance ToF/Tof spectrometer. Additionally, the software uses related MS3 data, which provides more information and completes sequences across the length of the peptide.
Starna Scientific is offering pharmaceutical quality assurance laboratories a safe-to-handle toluene/methanol CRM for validating instrument resolution with derivative spectrophotometry analysis methods. The easy-to-use CRM offers safety benefits for users because the methanol is permanently heat-fuse sealed, ensuring that laboratory users no longer need to handle the volatile, flammable, toxic solvent. The CRM is suitable for pharmaceutical QA laboratories using derivative spectrophotometry procedures to validate instrument resolution following the guidelines specified in section 2.2.25 of the European Pharmacopoeia.
Carl Zeiss has launched a new field emission scanning electron microscope. The Merlin combines the contradictory requirements of ultra-high resolution imaging and analytical capabilities and supports the user with a wide range of detailed solutions for tasks that could not be performed in the past.
