Multimode Reader

The new Cytation 5 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader includes added functionality to the automated digital microscopy and conventional multimode microplate detection modes, enhancing phenotypic cellular information and well-based quantitative data. Cytation 5's microscopy module provides cellular visualization up to 60x magnification in fluorescence, brightfield, H&E, and phase contrast modes. Equipped with BioTek's patented Hybrid Technology, the multimode module includes variable bandwidth quad monochromators, high sensitivity filter-based detection, and laser-based Alpha detection for unmatched versatility and performance. Cytation 5 also includes temperature control to 657° CO2/O2 control, shaking and Gen5 software, specifically designed to make sample detection, image capture, and analysis quick and effortless.

Chromatography Software

DataApex is pleased to announce the release of control drivers for Hitachi Chromaster and Primaide HPLC systems. Clarity Chromatography Software platform now enables both direct instrument control and digital data acquisition. The drivers have been released with Clarity version 5.0.5. Hitachi drivers will be available in selected territories through Hitachi official partners. Maximizing the portfolio of Clarity control drivers is very significant for us; the portfolio of controlled instruments is one of the greatest Clarity assets. Drivers for Hitachi HPLC systems were highly desired by Clarity users. Clarity Chromatography Software has a strong position in the chromatography data systems market. Clarity is highly regarded for its intuitive approach, excellent performance, cost-effectiveness, and proficient technical support. DataApex is solely focused on chromatography software development. A strong emphasis is placed on technological innovation, visionary adoption of new laboratory standards, best practices, and extensive customer support.

Digital Microscope Camera

High-quality digital microscopy is now more accessible than ever with the new 5 megapixel SC50 microscope camera, bringing fast, full high-definition live imaging and more to a host of routine applications. Designed for the convenience of everyday use and ideal under low-light conditions, the new 5 megapixel SC50 microscope camera is built on the latest CMOS chip technology to deliver improved speed, sensitivity, and resolution. Achieving full high-definition images at 32 fps, high-speed imaging with the SC50 captures and records dynamic events. The camera delivers clear, high-quality images to nearly every kind of monitor or projector, ready to be further analyzed or shared with an audience and enhancing a range of applications throughout both life and materials science. The SC50 actively keeps noise under control with Olympus Smart Image Averaging technology. Designed for ease of use, the SC50 also boasts an automatic and continuous White Balance feature.

Low-Noise Data Acquisition System

Patch clamp recordings require significant preparation time not only for sample setup, but also for eliminating the 50 and 60 Hz line-frequency background noise that severely impairs analysis of biological signals. With traditional systems, this line-frequency noise may completely prevent data acquisition if its source cannot be identified. The Digidata 1550A Low-Noise Data Acquisition System is the first digitizer with built-in adaptive noise cancellation technology, called the HumSilencer, which provides single-click elimination of the 50 and 60 Hz line-frequency noise. The system rapidly identifies local line-frequency noise and suppresses extraneous noise amplitude up to 20V peak to peak at the analog input in less than one second, saving troubleshooting time and increasing the data quality of patch clamp recordings. When combined with the Axon family of products, the Digidata 1550A completes the setup required to perform electrophysiology recordings essential for basic ion channel research as well as cell pathway analysis and disease research.

Nucleic Acid Isolation

Small on space. Big on productivity. Introducing the revolutionary chemagic 360. Providing unparalleled sample volume flexibility and productivity for nucleic acid isolation, the chemagic 360 enables users to purify from 10 μL up to10 mL of sample volume in batches varying from 1 to 96 samples at a time. Its modular set up allows for convenient integration with upstream and downstream platforms to provide a streamlined hands-free workflow. chemagen Technology by PerkinElmer also provides an extensive portfolio of kits to allow for nucleic acid isolation from various sample types. In addition, standard features such as an integrated dispenser for automated buffer filling, QA software, and barcode reading provide enhanced quality assurance to deliver results with certainty.
