Cell Thawer

Eppendorf now offers a further building block in supporting scientists with tailored solutions for the daily lab routine. Controlled, reliable cell thawing is mandatory for further downstream experiments in every cell-handling lab. Although water-bath based or even manual thawing of cells is still commonly practiced, these methods are not as desirable due to their limited reproducibility. The Eppendorf ThermoMixer C now features an exchangeable thermoblock, the cryo-thaw SmartBlock, which provides a dedicated thawing program for reproducible, reliable thawing of cells from frozen storage conditions up to 37°C.

Recombinant Monoclonal SARS-CoV-1/2 Antibodies

In response to the community's need for highly specific and reproducible antibodies for SARS-CoV-1/2 research, MilliporeSigma has designed ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibodies against various SARS CoV 1/2 targets. ZooMAb antibodies are all recombinantly produced, lyophilized, and free of animal components. Explore our offering of ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibodies that are suitable for COVID-19 research: Anti-SARS-CoV-1/2 NP, clone 1C7C7 ZooMAb Mouse Monoclonal Nucleoprotein; Anti-SARS-CoV-1/2 S Protein, clone 2B3E5 ZooMAb Mouse Monoclonal SARS-CoV-1/2 Spike Glycoprotein; and Anti-SARS-CoV-1/2 S Protein clone hu2B3E5 ZooMAb Chimeric Monoclonal.

3D Bioprinter

The BioScaffolder Prime from Analytik is an affordable, high-performance 3D bioprinter that delivers precision engineering in an advanced, customizable platform. The rapidly expanding field of 3D bioprinting for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine combines biocompatible/biodegradable polymers with living cells. This bioprinter package offers researchers the ability to create bioscaffolds for cell growth and to deposit layers of bioinks on implants or microfluidic objects. The unit can be equipped with multiple dispensing tools, including unique core/shell tools for simultaneous dispensing of different materials. Decentralized units for printing, media control, and computing save precious space in your biosafety cabinet and ensure superb heat dissipation. Silent but smart XYZ-drives deliver micrometer precision. In addition, the system comes with a Peltier heater/cooler cartridge for temperature-controlled bioprinting and a built-in UV-source UV-LED pen. Designed to fit and operate in a standard biosafety cabinet, BioScaffolder Prime enables you to undertake your 3D printing applications quickly, safely, and in a sterile environment.

Semiautomated Tube Picker

Ziath reports strong uptake of its Mohawk semiautomated tube picker in smaller biobanks and biorepositories, which need to select tubes from cold racks straight from the freezer but cannot afford the huge investment in robotics required to automatically pick and place tubes. The small, compact Mohawk can pick up 16 tubes simultaneously from a 96-position tube rack. By elevating sample tubes in racks using solenoids, the Mohawk enables biobank operators to quickly retrieve the correct tubes and put them in the destination racks. Additionally, because the Mohawk can seamlessly connect with Ziath rack scanners, biobank users can read a picking list, select tubes, and verify that the correct tubes are picked—making the process of finding and selecting the right tubes in your biobank more efficient and economical.

Low Temperature Flow Chemistry Module

The Cold Coil II Flow Reactor Module from Uniqsis is a flexible, entry-level solution for low temperature flow chemistry applications. Used in conjunction with an external thermoregulation circulator, the unit can maintain stable temperatures between −78°C and 150°C for extended periods of time. It is compatible with all Uniqsis coil reactors, from 2.0 mL up to 60 mL capacity. A proprietary clamping mechanism holds the coil reactor firmly in place and ensures optimal thermal contact while allowing easy interchange of coil reactors. The Cold Coil II can be easily converted into a photoreactor by coupling it with a Uniqsis PhotoSyn high-power LED light module. It is also compatible with the Uniqsis HotColumn multiple-column reactor adaptor for packed-bed applications. To ensure accurate remote measurement of the Cold Coil II reactor temperature, an optional internal temperature probe can be connected directly via RS232C.

Microplate Sealing for LC/MS Applications

The RAPID EPS (Easy Piercing Seal) from BioChromato is designed for scientists looking to prevent contamination issues and autosampler-needle clogging when accessing samples stored in 96-well microplates ready for LC/MS analysis. For LC/MS users, a key criterion for an effective microplate seal is its resistance to solvents such as acetonitrile, methanol, and DMSO, which are commonly used in experiments and analysis. The RAPID EPS uses a synthetic rubber adhesive to create a high-integrity, airtight seal with microplates, and shows no contamination in the eluents. In addition, the unique construction of BioChromato's RAPID EPS does not leave particulate material when pierced, further safeguarding your samples from contamination and eliminating potentially harmful effects to your LC/MS autosampler. The RAPID EPS is proven to offer dependable microplate sealing over a working temperature range of −80°C to 80°C.
