Tube Locking Mechanism

Snap Tube is a proven mechanism that enables sample storage tubes to be securely locked into storage racks. Snap Tube can be securely locked onto sample storage tubes by applying downward pressure on tubes in a storage rack. To unlock, the user applies gentle upward pressure, and the tubes are free again to be handled by an automated tube picking system. Available on all new Micronic Roborack, StaboRack, and Loborack storage racks, Snap Tube ensures that samples in noncoded, alphanumeric, and two-dimensional coded tubes are kept secure during transport or storage.

Chemiluminescent Detection of Hydrogen Peroxide

Lumigen HyPerBlu is a novel chemiluminescent substrate that enables direct detection of hydrogen peroxide. Combining a broad dynamic range with a bright, sustained chemiluminescence, the ready-to-use reagent offers convenience for high throughput screening laboratories. The reaction of the substrate with hydrogen peroxide rapidly generates sustained high-intensity luminescence in solution assays. Direct detection increases accuracy and simplifies data analysis. When coupled with oxidases, the reagent also allows reliable, one-step, indirect detection of oxidases or their substrates.

Energy-Efficient Power Supplies

New power supplies for NewClassic balances are fully Energy Star compliant. They are lighter, smaller, and more efficient in order to save energy and money for users of Mettler Toledo balances. Suitable for every weighing need, the NewClassic MS is a workhorse that features durability and ease of operation. A high-quality metal housing offers reliable protection and is resistant to chemicals. A redesigned user interface allows for intuitive operation. A high-contrast display enhances user friendliness by allowing error-free reading of results.

Photomanipulation System

The cell^FRAP system offers fast and easy real-time photobleaching and photomanipulation experiments with hardware-based device synchronization. Applications include fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP), fluorescence loss in photobleaching (FLIP), fluorescence localization after photobleaching (FLAP), pattern bleaching, photoactivation, and photoconversion. This flexible system also delivers simultaneous laser manipulation and observation at the click of a button. Intelligent scanning algorithms that target only the region of interest (ROI) remove the need for line scanning between ROIs and therefore increase the scan speed. The system makes it possible to undertake simultaneous photobleaching and image acquisition of multiple ROIs. It can be used for a range of applications from simple to advanced.

Custom BeadChip

An enhancement to the recently announced OmniExpress BeadChip, the HumanOmniExpress+ Custom BeadChip allows for the addition of up to 200,000 custom variants for a total of 900,000 variants per sample. OmniExpress+ leverages the proven iSelect custom genotyping infrastructure to provide researchers with unlimited flexibility in adding custom content for disease or pathway-specific markers, rare variants from the 1,000 Genomes Project, or panels for fine-mapping onto optimal sets of single nucleotide polymorphisms.

Fluorescence Activity Kits

The DetectX Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and Butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) Fluorescence Activity kits are simple, sensitive kits that measure AChE and BChE activity in a wide variety of samples. The kits contain everything needed to measure activity, including microplates. The reactions are initiated by the addition of a substrate and a fluorescent reporter. After a 20-minute incubation, the signal is read at 510 nm. The activity can also be read kinetically.
