Demonstration DVD

User Rating: / 4

Thermo Fisher Scientific have announced the availability of a new demonstration DVD which serves as a convenient evaluation tool to increase efficiency in elemental analysis laboratories in a variety of application areas in the metallurgy industry, from foundries to large aluminium smelters and modern steel works. Featuring a video of the automated ARL Metals Analyser with SMS-2000 sampling manipulation systems the DVD is designed to allow current and prospective customers to discover the features, benefits and abilities of automation. It provides a complete overview of the ARL SMS-2000 series, featuring the benefits of full laboratory workflow automation, from sample preparation and analysis to sample labelling and result distribution. Designed for use with Thermo's OES or XRF spectrometers, the system provides an integrated automation solution with operational flexibility to cover the most demanding applications. A choice of sample preparation techniques is available for metals and oxides. Users are able to achieve more precise results in less time and are able to work closer to low-grade specification limits, saving expensive alloying material. The DVD can be requested free-of-charge from the company's website.

Techne catalogue

User Rating: / 3

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.

CBS 102

User Rating: / 2

The latest edition of the CAM AG Bibliography Service, CBS 102, is now available from their UK distributor Omicrom Research. This latest issue features CAM AG's new TLC-MS interface, showing how its semi-automatic design can aid the identification of unknown substances by extracting compounds from a TLC/HPLC plate and feeding them into a mass spectrometer for substance identification of structure elucidation. Botanical slimming products come under investigation using HPTLC methods, revealing the extent to which Hoodia Gordinii is misrepresented in product labelling. Studies of nature continue with HPTLC analysis of natural sponges and the world's oldest tree species, Ginko Bibba, for their pharmacobiological properties.
