High-Capacity Slide Oven

The CytoBrite Slide Oven is a 60-slide convection incubator for performing extended or overnight FISH/ISH probe hybridizations. The CytoBrite Slide Oven has the capacity of five Thermobrite instruments in 60% less bench space. The oven has five pullout drawers that each receive two six-slide removable trays from the CytoBrite Slide Incubation System or CytoBrite Duo System. Slides are uniformly heated without humidification with the use of CytoBond Removable Coverslip Sealant.

Micromanipulator

The new TransferMan 4r is an innovative micromanipulator that combines an intuitive user interface with outstanding precision for rapid and simple microinjection. The exceptionally direct transmission of movement in all directions gives a "real-time feeling" and makes this instrument line the ideal platform for a broad range of applications, including microinjection and manipulation of suspension cells such as oocytes and blastocysts. The new DualSpeed joystick extends the precise and intuitive direct movement control with an additional dynamic speed mode for covering longer distances or speeding up sample processing. The multifunctional TransferMan 4r simplifies individual workflows by offering four predefined application-specific user interfaces such as "cell transfer" and "DNA injection." Users also have the option of programming additional methods for their individual application needs. The ergonomically designed control board and unique DualSpeed joystick mean the TransferMan 4r is tailored to providing excellent precision during cell handling and manipulation.

LED Illumination System

The new Lumen 300-LED from Prior Scientific is the latest product in Prior's ever expanding microscopy illumination product line. The unit is specifically designed to offer broad spectrum LED illumination for fluorescence applications. Fitting directly to most microscopes, the system is simple to install and use. Controlled by a manual keypad controller, the Lumen 300-LED offers instant on/off operation via TTL, manual 0%–100% intensity control in 1% increments and on/off control for each LED. An optional liquid light guide is available when there is a need to keep the illumination source remote from the microscope. Providing 25,000+ hours of bulb life, the Lumen 300-LED is an environmentally friendly illumination system that requires no special disposal regulations.

Vacuum Jacketed Reactor System

The ReactoMate Reactor System, with glass vacuum jacket, offers outstanding thermal performance thereby improving control of reactions. By reducing heat loss/gain the glass vacuum jacket enables faster rates of heating and uses less energy to cool the system. Also, lower temperatures can potentially be achieved compared with vessels without a vacuum jacket. In addition, the vacuum jacket provides excellent reaction visibility and reduces condensation—staying ice-free to -50° The ReactoMate Reactor System is a safe and super-stable laboratory reactor. Compact in design, the ReactoMate accommodates vacuum jacketed reactors from 50 mL to 10,000 mL and delivers precise control of reaction variables. Support systems for ReactoMate are constructed using stainless steel and aluminium components to ensure stability. Larger vessels (3,000–10,000 mL) are additionally supported at the base of the reactor to enhance safety. ReactoMate is designed to be compact, ergonomic, and have a simple setup.

Rotary Evaporator

The RC 900 Rotary Evaporator is designed to simplify rotary evaporation and enhance safety in the lab. The all-new RC 900 provides lab personnel with a unique combination of high-performance functionality and a simplified user experience, from an instrument that remains whisper-quiet and requires minimal space on the lab bench. The RC 900 provides lab personnel with streamlined rotary evaporation via a multitude of operational enhancements. Specifically, the instrument boasts straightforward flask exchange; now, a scientist can simply lock the flask into place using just one hand. Optimum flask angle is conveniently set via an adjustable knob. The system offers wireless control of all evaporatiå functions with an easy-to-use touchscreen and control knob. A cordless heating bath with pour spout encourages safe emptying without spilling, maximizing ease-of-use.

Reaction Monitoring Probe

A new Direct Analysis Probe for the line of expression compact mass spectrometers (CMS) is now available. With hundreds of CMS systems utilized in chemistry laboratories around the world, this latest development creates yet another important tool for chemists that need fast, simple, and reliable sample analysis of liquids, solids, and tablets without the need for sample preparation. Recognizing the unrivaled flexibility of the Advion CMS as a detector across many workflows, the Direct Analysis Probe delivers essential mass spectral information of compounds in less than one minute. The new Direct Analysis Probe sample introduction, otherwise known as ASAP (Atmospheric Solids Analysis Probe), uses a standard glass melting point capillary which is introduced into the CMS system. Chemists dip the closed end of the capillary into the sample of interest or scrape the surface of a solid, and then place the capillary into the CMS for analysis.
