New Products Centrifuge-Compatible Reservoir and Collection Plate The VBLOK 200 is a high-capacity, low dead-volume centrifuge-friendly collection plate that allows researchers transfer all that valuable liquid without using tips. The collection plate is certified DNase, RNase, and pyrogen free, and individually sterile packaged. The VBLOK 200 is a ANSI:SLAS, ISO 9001 solution to the shortfalls of off- the-shelf plasticware. With a total capacity of 282 mL, the VBLOK 200 has a graduation mark at 200 mL for visual reference, and comes individually packaged for quality control. Clickbio Live-Cell Analysis Platform The IncuCyte ® S3 is live-cell analysis platform for real-time, automated measurements of cell health, proliferation, movement, and func- tion for use inside a standard incubator. The IncuCyte S3 automates data capture and cell assessment delivering new insights and under- standing into biological processes. Cells can be continuously monitored and data collected around-the-clock and at precise, regularly scheduled sampling intervals for days, weeks, or months, while remaining unperturbed in a physiologically relevant environment. The S3 offers a completely redesigned user interface, enabling even first-time users to set up an ex- periment within minutes and then walk away as the IncuCyte automatically collects and analyzes images. Multiple T-flasks or up to six 96 or 384 well microtiter plates fit within the IncuCyte S3 system, increasing productivity and allowing different applications and assays to be run simultaneously, all the while collecting more than 4,000 images per hour. Essen BioScience Balance Enclosure for Powders and Liquids The VSE enclosure is offered in 24", 36", and 48" widths to accommodate an analytical balance and other small-scale lab processes. Constructed of chemical-resistant metal framing and 1/4"-thick, clear acrylic side panels and view- ing sash. Efficient air flow design with airfoil and bypass, directs contaminates to baffled exhaust thereby providing improved air flow and containment performance for user protection. The viewing sash is angled 15 degrees for ease of viewing comfort with 8" reach in opening height. Sash swings up to provide 20" of access opening. Two service ports are located in the lower-right and left-rear walls. HEMCO Automated Microscopy Platform The Celldiscoverer 7 combines the user-friendly automation features of a boxed microscope with the image quality and flexibility of a classic inverted research microscope. Scientists acquire data in shorter times with 2D or 3D cell cultures, tissue sections, or small model organ- isms. The system comes with various incubation and detection options and can be tailored to the individual needs of research labs. Users can choose from a selected range of microscope cameras for even the most demanding live-cell experiments and rapid time-lapse recordings. The new optical design of Celldiscoverer 7 together with advanced automatic calibration routines helps researchers to achieve reproducible high-quality data even from complex, long-term, time-lapse imaging experiments. A new hardware-based autofocus not only finds and keeps the focus automatically, but also detects the thickness and optical properties of the sample carrier. Zeiss High Area Filters The Express ® high area cartridges and single-use capsules are ideal for feed streams with high levels of particulates, such as cell culture media and protein solutions. These new high area filters help ensure product safety, efficient and effective processing, and optimum yield for demanding drug produc- tion processes. The Express cartridges and capsules combine fast-flowing polyethersulfone (PES) membranes with an M-pleat pattern. This design provides up to twice the surface area of a conventional filter, resulting in increased opera- tional efficiency. Additionally, an onboard prefilter increases the capacity and amount of fluid through the membrane, providing a longer filter life. MilliporeSigma Bathless Dissolution Tester The Model 2500 Select Bathless Dissolution Tes- ter offers patented technology that eliminates the water bath and all associated maintenance, providing heater jackets to raise media tem- perature from ambient to 37°C in less than 15 minutes. Wireless in-shaft temperature sensors continuously monitor and display the internal temperature for each vessel. A user-friendly touch screen allows for simplified command of the instrument with electronic tracking of seri- alized stirring elements, qualification status and due dates and extensive reporting and method storage capabilities.
