Tips to ensure your PhD benefits from PHD (Perfect Hydro Decontamination)

We’ve become accustomed to the ever-changing technological world around us. We expect nothing less than the best power and performance. It’s a symptom of our times. I mean waiting for the internet to load a website is so 90’s right? Today we want it now and it better be good. So why should you settle for anything less in the lab? After all, quick turnaround times and high quality water are directly proportional to your experimental success.

Recently Asked Questions

Sartorius/Extend Series - Error 53
When the equipment is switched on, there is no display as normal function. You can see an indication of ERR 53. What is error 53 and how can I solve it to get my scale working again? Advise this member.

PerkinElmer/Pyris 1 TGA - Sample Temperature
When I set the linear ramp of temperature between 30-600°C, if the sample has a weight loss at about 450-500°C, the sample temperature (and also the temperature visualized on instrument display) does not follow the set temperature, and at about 500°C, goes down; but then the temperature rises up to 600°C. Is it a malfunction of the furnace or calibration loss? Advise this member.

Thermo Scientific/Sorvall Evolution - Rotor drive motor
The rotor drive motor is not spinning. When I spin the rotor by hand, it displays speed. The green light on the drive control just blinks. Any info? Advise this member.

Unanswered Questions

IEC/Centra MP4 / MP4R - How can I repair
I already have a centrifuge MP4, but every time I set 10000 RPM, the velocity suddenly goes down up to 9500 RPM, then goes to 10000 RPM again. I think the centrifuge is damaged. How can I repair? Does it need a new motor?  Advise this member.

Dionex/ASE 200 - Pressure calibration
We're having an issue with the pressure calibrations on our ASE 200. We have the newer pressure transducer board and the air and nitrogen offsets and gains appear to be improperly set. The instrument reaches over 1000 psi during a rinse and overpressures at over 4000 psi during an extraction set for 1000 psi. Does anyone have any experience calibrating these things without paying a field technician? Advise this member.

Teledyne Isco/CombiFlash Companion - Ready mode
My Companion powers up but doesn't go into ready mode. I would appreciate any help.  Advise this member.
