GOW-MAC Instrument Co. 233
Software. TOC Talk supports laboratory compliance to the regulatory guidelines. This 21 CFR Part 11-compliant software package is in compliance with new federal regulations regarding electronic record keeping, a great concern in pharmaceutical laboratories. This package gives users administrative control of the analysis software, system security for TOC data, and comprehensive history files for auditing data.
Columns. The XTerra lines of preparatory instruments are designed for scientists performing isolation and purification in discovery and development settings. With these columns, users can load up to 60 times more sample onto a column than traditional silica-based reversed phase columns and allow the screening and purification of compound libraries in half the time while maintaining a high level of resolution.
Testing Samples. The Enviro-PT Program is designed with the same guidelines used by the U.S. EPA criteria document for Water Pollution and Water Supply, in addition to DMRQA. The lab has up to 45 days to analyze the samples and return the results to the company. After the close of the study, a comprehensive data package is sent by mail, fax, or e-mail. These testing samples are manufactured under ISO 9001 guidelines and triple-checked for quality.
SPEX CertiPrep 236
Software. The Scientific Data Management System 5.0 is a Web-enabled suite that is designed to electronically assist the laboratory environment in information collection, storage, and retrieval by automatically aggregating data from disparate sources, providing greater access and insight into critical knowledge generated in the laboratory. The 5.0 upgrade adds Web technology to the current SDMS, in addition to several other features that enable streamlined data management throughout the scientific enterprise.
Software. The MICROLAB Vector program is designed for lab automation programming and integration. Protocols are created in a flexible Windows-based environment. With a combination of general program functions and instrument-specific commands, the user has extensive control over the protocol as well as specific parameters. In addition, Vector allows multiple instrument selection and integration in the same software environment. One protocol can be created to incorporate all selected instruments without additional software or complicated programming.
Hamilton Co. 238
Dispenser. This universal bottle top dispenser has an indestructible ceramic piston and a user-friendly reagent recirculation system. Due to the recirculation system, there is no loss of reagent and the micro-step volume adjustment is calibrated to last for the devices lifetime. Each dispenser has an individual quality certificate and is conformity certified.
Application Note. The Key to the Analysis of High Matrix Samples by ICP-MS presents the benefits of using the ELAM 6100 system for multi-elemental determinations in high-matrix samples. This application note describes the design features of the ELAN 6100 that prevent instrument drift and explains a procedure that allows laboratories with high-matrix samples to benefit from the companys SCIEX product. As illustrated, this system offers laboratories increased stability, even in the presence of high concentrations of matrix elements found in geochemical and environmental samples.
PerkinElmer Instruments 240
Catalog. Tools for Scientists is the companys latest 2001 catalog. Three new temperature controllers are featured; one has Pt RTD sensing for control to 0.1 °C, and the second is a dual controller that permits running two independent reactions simultaneously. The third controller has variable voltage control for low-voltage heaters as well as on/off control for operating a Lab Jack or cooling system. Also featured are safety products such as protective shields, water shut-off systems that prevent lab floods, a liquid level sensor, and disposable glove bags.
