Stirring System

Viscous reaction mixtures often require more powerful stirring than can be achieved with magnetic stirrers. The Vortex stirrer system converts a single overhead stirrer into a powerful three-position parallel stirrer combined with a multiple heating block. The combination of Vortex stirring and DrySyn heating blocks provides efficient stirring while retaining the benefits of the DrySyn range, including safety, rapid heat transfer, and a small size. Used with a standard laboratory hotplate, the unit becomes a compact, small-footprint reaction station capable of running up to three parallel reactions in conventional round-bottom flasks.

Data Management for Sequencing Platforms

The HT-BLIS productivity system provides an enterprise-scale informatics environment for integrating, analyzing, and sharing data generated by next-generation sequencing systems. HT-BLIS can process, in real time, the massive amounts of data generated by high throughput genomic analysis systems such as Applied Biosystems' Solid System, Helicos's HeliScope Sequencer, Illumina's Genome Analyzer, and Roche's Genome Sequencer FLX System. The latest genomic analysis technologies generate millions of sequences with billions of bases per day. While this capability offers unprecedented resolution and speed for gene expression, sequencing, and genotyping projects, the huge data volumes overwhelm existing informatics infrastructures. HT-BLIS addresses this challenge by receiving, storing, and manipulating in real time the massive amounts of data generated by banks of next-generation sequencers.

Handheld X-Ray Fluorescence Instrument

The TracerturboSD is a handheld X-ray fluorescence instrument that features a silicon drift detector (SDD) for dramatically improved speed, sensitivity, and resolution. Bruker's XFlash SDD has been integrated into the handheld device to achieve the speed, analytical specificity, and energy resolution that is generally found only in more expensive laboratory systems. New applications include art conservation, archeology analysis, and the aerospace industry, where users can better analyze light element alloys, even without the use of vacuum or helium attachments.

End Repair Kit

The End-It DNA End Repair Kit is for treating fragmented genomic DNA for use in next-generation DNA sequencing. The kit converts DNA containing damaged ends, 5' protruding ends, or 3' protruding ends to 5'-phosphorylated, blunt-ended DNA for fast and efficient ligation to sequencing adapters. The end-repaired, 5'-phosphorylated DNA can then be efficiently ligated using Epicentre's Fast-Link DNA Ligation Kit.

Freeze Drying System

The Virtis Genesis Freeze Drying System offers the versatility for use in pilot, research, and small-scale applications. The compact, freestanding, mobile design enables the system to be optimally configured to almost any freeze drying application. New ergonomic profiling allows easy inspection of the vacuum pump and facilitates quick, trouble-free oil changes. A clean room version is also available. The product chamber, shelves, and condenser chamber are made of durable stainless steel, with a squared product chamber that ensures easy cleaning and maximum shelf area. A four-inch diameter port increases vapor flow from the product to the condenser chamber, maximizing productivity. It is available with up to six bulk-drying shelves and five vial processing shelves.
