If you’re anything like me you try to process work quickly and efficiently while maintaining quality in the end, much like the goal of homogenization. The article featured this week from Lab Manager Magazine titled The Right Choice For Homogenization showcases some of the top homogenizers and what applications they are used for. Also, this week we have the first LabWrench Product Survey for Lab Glassware Washers, if you haven’t taken it yet you can do so by clicking here.

JEOL Introduces New Environmental Control System for Scientific Instrument Labs
Scientific instrumentation is typically housed in an enclosed room, with just enough access for operation or service. The heat generated from equipment, personnel entering and exiting the room, and the enclosed facility itself can all affect the performance of sensitive instrumentation. To help ensure optimum instrument performance and maintain a consistently cool environment without adding air turbulence, JEOL, a global supplier of ultrahigh resolution electron microscopes, has developed a unique radiant cooling system for the instrument laboratory.

Bruker Brings Exceptional High Performance Single and Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometry to Gas Chromatographers with the Release of the SCION Series
At the 2011 Florida Pesticide Residue Workshop, Bruker announced the release the SCION TQ™ triple quadrupole and the SCION SQ™ single quadrupole mass spectrometers for gas chromatography (GC) detection. Designed especially to enhance data quality and productivity for analysts working in routine testing and applied markets, these systems combine performance and value like never before in GC-MS. The SCION GC-MS platform offers revolutionary performance and ease of use, particularly for the food safety and environment monitoring communities, and represent an innovation leap in GC-MS technology.

Improving chiral separation and natural product sample preparation
The Genevac Rocket Evaporator is widely used by researchers seeking to extract functional molecules from natural sources. Typically investigations involve a primary solvent extraction of natural products that result in a large volume of crude extract. The crude extract is then often concentrated before being fractionated to isolate each component. The time consuming concentration task has been revolutionised by the unique large volume parallel processing capabilities of the ROCKET evaporator. The process of natural product fractionation typically produces many samples from a single extract. These samples need then to be evaporated before storage or analysis.
