Automated blood processing
Accessory Kit
Automated blood processing.
The Olympus OLA 1500 pre- and postanalytical blood sample processing system meets the needs of medium to large transfusion services. It streamlines workflow and reduces costs associated with sample processing by automating identification, decapping, output sorting, and archive preparation of sample tubes.
Olympus 155

Accessory kit. The accessory kit for the Biomek 2000 Laboratory Automation Workstation includes hardware and software elements that automate the quantitation and normalization of DNA samples in 96-well plates. The package includes predeveloped BioWorks methods and Data Collector software for quantitating DNA sample concentrations by reading and standard plates.
Beckman Coulter 156

MicroDissector. This PPMD method processes all common histological samples, as well as living cells, rapidly and precisely. It eliminates the time-consuming pretreatment of sections. The type and thickness of the section have no bearing on its performance. There are no adverse effects from heat exposure or UV radiation to the surrounding tissue.
Eppendorf 157

Drying adapter
Drying adapter.
The VacMaster allows SPE columns to dry more quickly than do traditional vacuum methods. Analyte recoveries are enhanced when columns are thoroughly dried before elution. The drying adapter works in conjunction with a vacuum manifold, and options are available that are compatible with column volumes of 1, 3, 6, 15, and 25 mL.
Jones Chromatography 158

Incubator. The translucent, acrylic, Peltier-based chilling/heating incubator is for use in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, biochemistry, clinical, general chemistry, and other laboratories. The unit holds 12 assay plates or 664 centrifuge tubes in an 8 x 14.5 in. footprint from 10.0 to 50.0 °C. Applications include protein crystal growth; culture growth above, below, or at ambient temperature; enzyme reactions and deactivations; ligations; storage of oocytes and DNA libraries; hybridizations; and incubation of marine cultures.
Torrey Pines Scientific 159

Mass spectrometer. The LCQ Deca XP research-grade benchtop ion-trap instrument features a completely redesigned orthogonal API source that provides ultrasensitivity and extreme ruggedness. This unit gives high data quality in full-scan MS and MS/MS mode.

HPLC columns
Imaging system
This simple manual system spots DNA, cDNA, RNA, protein, and antibody microarrays for a variety of assays. It is ideal for conducting pilot and proof-of-principle studies and screening small genomic libraries.
V&P Scientific 162

Microplates. The small-volume Proxi Plate microplates are available in 96- and 384-well format and in black and white. Shallow wells allow the microplates to position samples much closer to the instrument detectors, yielding increased signals.
Packard BioScience 163

Analyzer. The YSI 7100 MSB is a powerful, upgradeable system for testing in the laboratory and pilot plant, as well as in production. It measures up to four distinct parameters simultaneously. The system can be customized with up to three mix-and-match sensor modules, each containing up to two chemistry sensors. Existing chemistries include glucose, lactate, glutamate, and glutamine with ammonium. Standard features include true multiparameter measurement and display.
YSI 164

HPLC columns. Prevail columns are available in a full range of phases and hardware formats to suit every application. The Prevail C18 is a general-purpose column that works well in all mobile-phase conditions. The proprietary bonding process stabilizes the C18 phase in a highly aqueous mobile phase.
Alltech 165

Imaging system. The TILL real-time fluorescence system features the highest possible synchronization between fluorescence excitation and image acquisition, yielding the best duty cycle to reduce photo damage to a minimum. Gap-free bursting image acquisition allows high-speed, multicolor image acquisition, which is necessary for the study of fast dynamic processes in living cells.
