Paraffin Section Flotation Bath

A new paraffin section flotation bath makes the manipulation and placement of paraffin wax sections onto glass slides both simple and efficient. With its user-friendly design and optimized performance, it builds on the success of Electrothermal's original appliance and continues the brands legacy of robust, safe, and efficient laboratory equipment. The Paraffin Section Flotation Bath benefits from a PTFE black interior, which provides high contrast for easy viewing of samples. Virtually maintenance-free and simple to clean, it delivers ultimate ease of use and reliability. The bath also has improved heat-up rates (raising 2.25 L of water to a nominal temperature of 45°in just 40 minutes), and enhanced temperature stability of ±5° These improved levels of control also prevent overheating and lower the risk of damaging samples. Users can not only prepare slides for viewing in a shorter timeframe, but can have upmost confidence in the safe handling of their biological materials.

Magnetic Beads

MagSi-Direct provides a convenient and efficient way to attach virtually any biomolecule to nanoscopic paramagnetic beads. It is particularly suited for exploiting interactions between a biomolecule and its binding partners. With MagSi-Direct, you can start with a molecule of interest, attach magnetic beads to it, and then use a magnet to isolate that molecule from any desired reaction mixture, together with any other molecules, complexes, or even intact cells to which the starting molecule has bound. In effect, the starting molecule is converted into a magnetic affinity reagent, or "bait," which can be used to purify, isolate, or characterize the partners with which it interacts. MagSi-Direct beads attach to the starting molecule via strong coordinate bonds between the surface of the bead and any electron donating group on your molecule (carboxyl, amide, 1°°°ine, hydroxyl, phosphate, halogen, etc). Molecular orientation is non-specific and random.

Ultrasafe High-Pressure Reactor

PressureSyn is a state-of-the-art, 125 mL working volume high-pressure reactor that uniquely combines outstanding performance, ease of use, and the highest level of operational safety for users. PressureSyn reactors provide an ideal tool for stirred, or non-stirred, high-pressure applications including hydrogenations, carbonylations, catalyst screening, and polymerizations.

The standard safety features of PressureSyn include a bursting disk and a pressure relief valve. PressureSyn reactors feature a unique bracket and key operated locking system ensuring easy assembly. However, this novel clamping arrangement also prevents the clasp from being disassembled while the reactor is still under pressure. Each reactors locking collar has a unique key which ensures only that key can be used to open that specific individual reactor. With customer safety paramount, each individual PressureSyn reactor is tested to 170 bar, witnessed and certified by Zurich Insurance, and is rated for use up to a maximum pressure of 100 bar and temperature of 200°

High-Performance Liquid Chromatography System

A new high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) system has been designed from the ground up to provide new levels of performance, productivity, and usability when used as a standalone system or with the latest mass spectrometers. The monolithic case contains an instrument that combines the ruggedness of an integrated system with the flexibility and serviceability of a modular system. Vanquish stands about 25% lower than comparable modular stacks for safety and convenience in the laboratory. Central to the Vanquish concept is the new family of Accucore Vanquish UHPLC columns, specially designed to optimize performance. The new columns feature 1.5 μm solid core particles utilizing Core Enhanced Technology to take full advantage of the Vanquish system's 1,500 bar (22,000 psi) maximum pump pressure and flow rate up to 5 mL/min for ultrashort diffusion path lengths and highly efficient separations.

Automated Electrophoresis System

The new LabChip GX Touch and GXII Touch electrophoresis systems automate conventional gel electrophoresis, eliminating the need for manual sample preparation. The LabChip GX Touch and GXII Touch reduce hands-on time and simplify data generation via a user friendly operator touch screen. The LabChip platform provides the data and throughput necessary to perform effective nucleic acid quantification and protein characterization. The LabChip GX system can enhance genomics research process by precisely quantifying nucleic acids. The GXII Touch system helps to accelerate the development of biotherapeutic drugs by automating the protein characterization process. The LabChip GXII Touch system's rapid reporting of multiple proteins' critical quality attributes can support customer needs throughout the product life cycle. The LabChip Touch platform's top differentiator is its ability to perform electrophoresis in microfluidic channels. The LabChip GX Touch system provides rapid, quantifiable data for pre- and post-polymerase chain reaction sample analysis, which is critical for next generation sequencing and genomics workflows.
