Recently Asked Questions

Beckman Coulter/Microfuge 18 - Door latch
Found this model in our salvage area. It won't spin because the door latch light comes on. Is this a simple fix? It seems so, and repair prices are ridiculous. Otherwise, it seems it very good condition.  Is this something I can easily fix myself? Replace the latches inside? Some minor adjustment? Advise this member.

SCIEX/CEQ 8000 - Runs terminate early
 Using the Grag1 program I occasionally have runs that terminate early (say around 250 bp rather than the 400+bp expected).  I have three questions:  1) why is this happening?  2) are the peak sizes I see on the abbreviated tracings accurate?  3) would it help to use a different program (maybe Freq2)? Advise this member.

Branson Ultrasonics/Branson 8510 Ultrasonic Cleaner - Won't power on
Branson 1510 cleaner will not power on.  Switch, fuses all check out good. 115vac on board no relay activated.  Require schematics/service manual for repair.  Can any one help out? Advise this member.

Lab Equipment Questions for the Experts

Conair/NCM Series - Equipment Maintenance Tech
We have a NCM-3 that the bearing on the motor end of the grinder is lost all its grease and is making noise and I am looking for a replacement bearing, could you give me a part # and price or a bearing number so I could get one from a local bearing distributer. Advise this member.

Hettich/Universal 16 - Error 11
We are facing Error 11, currently we are not able to run the machine, Please provide solution. Advise this member.

PerkinElmer/Clarus 500 - Replaced PC and now LINK doesn't work.
I replaced the control computer for my Clarus 500 GCMS and installed Turbomass. I can see the MS, but I can't configure the LINK or serial port for the GC. When I used the TurboMass/GC/configure dialog box, and I query the port, it replies with "Interface not found or unavailable".  Do I need specific LINK software, not on the TurboMass install disk, or has my LINK card in the GC failed? Is there a way to test the LINK card? Advise this member.
