Construction of your Biosafety Cabinet Matters!

NuAire Class II Biological Safety Cabinets are designed as a monolithic unit. This means the shell of the cabinet is manufactured by welding sheets of heavy gauge stainless steel together to create a stronger core eliminating potential leaks. Try a NuAire and see why we are the safer choice. Watch the video here.

Shimadzu/UV-2450/2550 - Calibration
I am having trouble with getting absorbance check reading to fall within range. I have cleaned the cells and made fresh potassium dichromate solution and still the absorbance readings are not falling within range at wavelengths 235nm, 257nm, 313nm and 350nm. Does anyone have any suggestions on what other trouble shooting I can do? Advise this member.

Cincinnati Sub-Zero/Z-Plus - 570i controller
I have two chambers a Z-8 PLUS and a Z-64. I also have the CSZ EZ-View on my computer. When I create a profile and download it to the Z-64, it puts the product information in the humidity spots. The two chambers will be connected to a network line here at work. Can someone please help me how to deal with this problem? I understand that I need an RS232 to RS485 converter but don't know where to put it exactly. Advise this member.

Perkin Elmer Spectrum 1000 - Back up and running
We are trying to get a PE Spectrum 1000 up and running again after not being used for 10 years. I contacted PE and they sent me a manual for a RX1 which has a different interface. Does anyone have a manual for a Spectrum 1000 or suggestions on how to get this back up and running. I have contacted ftir and he is going to work on the optics and laser but the software is the issue. We have a copy of the Spectrum 3.02 software from PE. Advise this member.

Magritek expand benchtop NMR capabilities with 31P Phosphorus system.

Magritek Spinsolve Benchtop NMR spectrometers repeatedly demonstrate the highest performance in their class in terms of sensitivity and resolution. Spinsolve Phosphorus extends that capability to include the 31P nucleus. The high NMR sensitivity of 31P combined with its large chemical shift range, simple spectra and absence of impurities in the background spectrum make 31P NMR ideal for routine purity assessment and tracking reactions. Magnet design and thermal control provide remarkable long-term stability meaning minimal requirement for optimisation sequences. Compact and convenient, easy-to-operate and with low cost of entry and maintenance, Spinsolve is a most attractive proposition for laboratories today.

Moisture-Free Storage: Nitrogen or Desiccant?

Desiccators, sometimes called dry boxes, provide a low-humidity atmosphere for storage of items and materials that would otherwise be damaged by moisture. Desiccators are used for a wide range of applications across several scientific disciplines.

In chemistry and biology, desiccators are often used to store hygroscopic reagents and chemicals. Keeping these compounds in a low-humidity environment drastically increases their shelf life. In semiconductor research and manufacturing, dry storage is often employed to prevent damaging oxidation of wafers and other components that can lead to immediate or latent failures.
