MKS has introduced the a-Baratron, an advanced high-performance, heated absolute capacitance manometer with higher tolerance to ambient temperature changes. The a-Baratron manometer is internally heated to 45, 80 or 100 C, and has a pushbutton zero that allows service intervals up to four times longer than earlier models.
Anoto and ChasmTech announced the SmartInk Redline—a digital pen drawing markup solution with Anoto Live PDF. Designed for utilities, architects and engineers who need timely access to as-built information, SmartInk Redline allows users to markup CAD drawings and automatically reads the Anoto Live PDF files as they are returned.
The TR-72wf contains an integrated Wi-Fi function that enables it to automatically upload recorded data from the logger to TandD’s free cloud-based WebStorage Service. The device has an AP mode which allows for direct log on and downloading of data by a smartphone or tablet.
The dependable, rugged-built weigh cell of the Practum balance ensures that even entry-level users will start weighing right and obtain professional, accurate results at all times. The easy-to-use menu guides the user intuitively through standard built-in applications, such as weighing, counting, peak hold to “lock in” the highest reading of a measurement series and weighing under unstable conditions.
FLIR ONE’s ability to detect and visualize heat, including minute differences in temperature, allow users to spot relative temperature differences at doors and windows to optimize energy efficiency, or to locate wall studs and ceiling joists.
With the enhanced workgroup functionality, Allplan 2014 allows architects to integrate project partners and employees in their working environment across office and company boundaries as though all were working around the same table on the same design.
Specifically designed for use by smaller labs, it may also serve as an economical setup for larger labs. Bactron systems have airtight construction of stainless steel and rigid Plexiglas, for unobstructed vision and integrity. The patented cuffs form a comfortable seal around the operator's arms permitting bare hand manipulation of plates and specimens inside the working chamber, making work more comfortable and efficient.
The Allegro peristaltic pump system allows maintenance-free, continuous flow pumping for various fluids. The Allegro can easily dispense in forward or reverse direction using the touchscreen display. Additionally, all parameters are clearly displayed on the touchscreen for easy viewing.
Its intuitive operating design guides users through the many weighing applications built into the balance, helping to enhance lab workflows. The new Sartorius lab balance is available in a choice of 12 models with weighing capacities ranging from 120 to 5,100 g and readabilities extending from 0.1 mg to 1 g.
Ocean Optics has introduced the IDRaman micro, a compact microscope designed for Raman measurements in research, quality control and quality assurance environments. The IDRaman micro is a versatile, high-performance analytical tool for applications where sampling requires careful focus and high spatial resolution to optimize the Raman signal.
Features include: a dual-volume setting system and volume lock, easy calibration, universal shaft, durable sealing system effective for 60,000 cycles, fully autoclavable, UV resistant, large pipetting pushbutton, color-coded, comfortable finger hook, contoured handle and soft spring system to minimize hand fatigue.
The benchtop model allows users to work with a flat-topped peak profile that tolerates mass-scale drift with no effect on measurement results. Additionally, the speed of measurement combined with precise analysis should enable a faster process understanding and, in turn, a shorter development cycle.
Torrey Pines Scientific offers the EchoTherm stackable/programmable vibration-free chilling incubators for protein crystallography and other life science uses. The incubators are 27-L capacity and Peltier-based for heating and chilling.
The animated, self-explanatory and wordless symbol display facilitates a rapid and easy selection of all functions. To assist the user, the new functions provide: zero-pressure shut off, gas consumption display, cooling reminder for inoculation loops, temperature regulation for heating media, user account selection, graphical installation instructions and acoustic signals as operating aids.
Kewaunee Enterprise is a self-supporting, moveable workstation table design. It is available with an above counter support structure, or as an adjustable height four legged table.
The new Captair Flow fume hoods from Erlab are designed to protect samples handled in the enclosure using very low energy consumption. Air entering the enclosure is free of any external contamination and provides an ultraclean work atmosphere which protects contamination-sensitive samples.
The Protector XStream laboratory hood from Labconco is a high-performance fume hood which operates well at low air volumes. The Protector XStream uses patented features that work together to significantly reduce the concentrations of contaminants in areas behind the sash opening and near the user's breathing zone.
The AirMax fume hood with wet fume scrubber system from AirClean Systems is a complete solution for protecting personnel from dangerous chemical exposure while also protecting ductwork and the environment by scrubbing acids and other water soluble gases from fume hood exhaust.
As the cost of energy continues to rise and research budgets grow ever tighter, a lab’s autoclave is an excellent place to create savings without compromising on usability or results. In a 2011 audit, researchers with the British Higher Education for Environmental Performance Improvement (HEEPI) project’s S-Lab initiative found that the University of Edinburgh’s Cancer Research Centre’s pair oflarge medical-grade autoclaves accounted for 41 percent of that facility’s total annual energy usage.
The College of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley is redesigning and rebuilding its chemistry and chemical engineering laboratories with a $30 million, 22,000 sf project in a facility that had not been upgraded for nearly 50 years.
