FTIR Spectrometer

Exoscan is a small, compact Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometer designed to move spectroscopy out of the laboratory and into the field. The innovative analyzer can perform nondestructive on-site surface and bulk analysis applications. Weighing less than seven pounds, the Exoscan is easy to use and features analytical performance that rivals larger and more expensive traditional FTIR spectrometers. It is also capable of handling attenuated total reflectance applications. It can be powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery or AC power and can sample from a wide variety of materials including solids, pastes, gels, and liquids.

Protein Characterization and Purification Columns

The Jupiter 3 mm C18 300 Å high-performance liquid chromatography columns are for protein characterization and purification. Jupiter 3 mm C18 columns fully resolve posttranslational modifications and are suitable for research on proteins such as cytochrome C, insulin, and b-lactoglobulin. All Jupiter 300 columns feature extended pH stability ensured by extensive testing and quality control documentation. Jupiter's bonding and silica technology provide scalability from analytical and preparative media to bulk material.

High-Resolution Liquid Chromatography

The Series 275 HRes Liquid Chromatography (LC) System provides the opportunity to increase throughput and improve resolution using small particle‐size column technology at ultrahigh pressure ranges. The system is designed to support quality control in the food and beverage, environmental, pharmaceutical, and materials testing markets. The system's new Brownlee HRes LC Column technology features newly developed small particles for high resolution and speed of separation. The system also includes the Series 275 Autosampler, which allows for automation and repeatability in the critical injection phase. A new Series 275 Binary Micro Pump supports the small particle/high resolution LC columns.

Spectrophotometer

NanoVue is a sensitive ultraviolet/visible light spectrophotometer that accurately quantifies DNA, RNA, oligonucleotide, and protein samples in under five seconds. NanoVue's measurement speed is due to the system's proprietary “drop-and-measure” hydrophobic sample plate and user-friendly built-in software. NanoVue does not require a computer and users can select predefined methods or create their own directly from the system's display. The instrument's sensitivity enables measurements of sample volumes as low as 0.5 ml. The system eliminates the use of cuvettes or capillaries and is easy to clean, reducing the risk of contamination. Other features include up to 90 user-defined methods, an optional built-in printer or data output via USB, optional wireless connectivity, and a small footprint.
