Microtube Homogenizer

The BeadBlaster 24 Microtube Homogenizer can grind, lyse, or homogenize up to 24 samples simultaneously. Tubes in the stainless steel tube carrier are subjected to an intense 3-D motion, causing high-energy impacts between the samples and microbeads to release their cellular contents. After homogenization, samples are centrifuged and the supernatant collected for additional processing. Operation of the BeadBlaster 24 is programmable, allowing for short bursts of homogenizing with rests in between to protect sensitive samples. Up to 50 programs can be stored in memory and recalled quickly. The transparent lid prevents access to the samples when the unit is in operation while a brushless motor provides cool and quiet operation. Benchmark offers a variety of prefilled tube kits to meet your sample needs.

Spectrophotometers

Qualoupe Lite is a new low-cost, intuitive laboratory information management system (LIMS). Compatible with Jenway 7300, 7305, 67 series, Genova Plus, and Genova Nano spectrophotometers, Jenway 4510 bench conductivity meter, and the Stuart SMP40 automatic melting point, the system provides a convenient solution for laboratories in need of simple, auditable data storage. Qualoupe Lite is ideal for small and medium laboratories in the academic and commercial sectors, delivering powerful but straightforward functions for storing and retrieving laboratory results and data. This affordable LIMS eliminates the need to spend large amounts of money on overcomplicated software—a common problem faced by laboratories looking to upgrade from a traditional paper or multiple PC storage system. Using Qualoupe Lite, analysis results and method information can be transferred easily from the instruments to the database, either by a direct connection or via removable media, ready to be recalled for review at any point.

Fluorescence Spectroscopy System

The new FluoroMax Plus is a convenient, affordable, and easy-to-use benchtop spectrofluorometer. The new FluoroMax Plus expands on the already class-leading capabilities of our FluoroMax series with the option of a second detector and two position grating turret, providing an extended range out to 1,650 nm, and TCSPC performance down to 25 ps. The higher sensitivity offered by FluoroMax Plus enables faster measurement of weaker and smaller samples. Horiba Scientific offers a broad range of gratings, detectors, and accessories for the FluoroMax series to fit any research application needs. These include measurement of solid and liquid samples, high throughput screening, cryogenic or elevated temperatures, absolute quantum yields, microliter volumes, and even micron-scale measurements with a fiber optic coupling to a microscope.

Chromatography Medium

Capto S ImpAct cation exchange chromatography medium is designed for efficient and flexible purification of monoclonal antibodies (MAbs). Capto S ImpAct is a strong cation exchanger for the intermediate and polishing steps when purifying MAbs and a wide range of other biomolecules. Capto S ImpAct offers both high binding capacity and high resolution at high sample loads. The high-flow characteristics of the Capto base matrix enables excellent pressure-flow properties. The small bead size for high resolution, in combination with the novel extended-surface ligands, supports high dynamic binding capacity at high sample loads. The ability to run at both high flow rates and bed heights combines with these attributes to increase productivity and flexibility in process design. Key benefits of Capto S ImpAct include: high binding capacity, high resolution for efficient aggregate removal at high sample loads, large operational window of flow rates and bed heights for easy optimization and scale up, and high productivity.

Biological Sample Concentrator

The miVac Quattro is the perfect workhorse sample concentrator for biological laboratories tasked with handling larger numbers of samples. The miVac Quattro centrifugal vacuum concentrator rapidly removes a wide range of solvents, from volatile organic solvents through to DMF, including water, making it the ideal system for concentrating precious samples in applications including oligonucleotide synthesis, RNA/DNA preparation, peptide preparation, sequencing, molecular biology, and ADME/toxicology research. A wide variety of high-capacity rotors means that the miVac Quattro is capable of removing water and organic solvents from biological samples in a range of formats including tubes, microplates, and vials. Fitted with a four-swing position rotor the miVac Quattro can simultaneously accommodate up to twenty shallow-well microplates or eight deep-well plates enabling significant increases in throughput and slashing drying times. The intuitive controls allow inexperienced users to get first-class results first time with most samples, while providing more sophisticated programming capability for experienced workers.
