The Next Generation of Vacuum Pump Systems; Clean, Quiet and Energy Efficient
Vacuum pumps systems no longer have to be loud, noisy, filled with oil that leaks and smokes, or complicated to use. Today’s researchers are looking for vacuum systems characterized by reliable, deep vacuum performance, for use in a wide variety of applications, high flow capacities, shorter process times, precise pressure control, accurate, repeatable results, and clean, quiet, and efficient operation. Also important are environmentally friendly products without sacrificing performance. Learn more

Product Focus: Live Cell Imaging - Microscopy in Real Time
Cell imaging has become one of the most exciting subcategories of biological microscopy. During the past decade, cell imaging has evolved from the study primarily of fixed cells to time-lapse photos of events in living cells to real-time videos of cellular processes. Learn more

Centrifuges: Adding Safety and Versatility to High-Speed Separations
When it comes to common technology in a laboratory, centrifuges rise toward the top of the list. If a scientist wants the liquid at the bottom of the tube, but it’s distributed along the sides in droplets, centrifuge it. Need to separate the cells from a suspension? Centrifuge it. This tool also comes into play in a wide range of other workflows, including purifying DNA, RNA, or proteins. Learn more

It's Time To Set A New Standard

Don't get left behind in the race for clean. An independent study* demonstrates that Panasonic H2O2 decontamination provides 100% kill rate with at least a 6 log reduction of major contaminants within 3 hours, making it more efficient than heat sterilization. *Study for efficacy evaluation of sterilization techniques in cell culture incubators by Charles River.

Be the first Lab to have the new Findenser- Greener alternative to Water Condensers

Every lab has the typical stirring hotplate, heating block and water condenser set up for daily reflux. Ever think there might be a greener way rather than the traditional water condenser? This year with collaboration of a leading pharmaceutical company, Radleys has created the Findenser. The super air Findenser comprises of an internal vigreux condenser and an external, finned aluminum jacket, between which a small amount of water is permanently sealed. Not only are you receiving excellent heat transfer but also removing the need for water cooling. This system can be used for 95% of all common chemistry applications. Go Green in your lab today with the new Findenser.

 Featured Question and Discussions

Plenty of discussions are happening on LabWrench all the time. We have many questions come in daily from users that are seeking advice from fellow users and lab professionals. Can you help any of these users find the answers they are looking for?

GE Healthcare Biacore 3000 error message
I am getting an error message saying that the lower optical sensor on the pump is blocked continuously, just wondered if anyone could shed any light on what this means? Provide an answer

Agilent 5873 temp problem. error 511c
I have cleaned source and changed repeller. Reading of the white lines on repeller and heating block are 108 omhs, so not broken there, changed the side board and still when pumping down 511c temp then changed out the main board and again 511c temp. This doesnt allow you to pump system down. Any other ideas? It seems to be electronic, just not sure where. View this discussion

Moving of the Machine
Have recently acquired a secondhand (operational) Foundry Master Compact Spectro - I am about to move it to my site. Does anyone know what I should be careful of/need to do/disconnect (obviously the argon and power) etc. before moving it. Provide an answer

PerkinElmer AAnalyst 400
I have problem with my AAS during the work for cupper and silver, it shows me Detector Saturation. Data may not be valid. Can you please send some information wich can help me? View this discussion
