New Products Single-Cell Analysis System The Cyto-Mine ® single-cell analysis system is supported primarily by its picodroplet technol- ogy. The instrument is compatible with the Cyto-Cartridge ® , a disposable microfluidic biochip that allows single cells of interest to be dispensed into individual wells of a microtiter plate for biopharma discovery, cell line development, and monoclonality assurance. This enables a step change in throughput for biopharma applications. Traditionally, up to three different items of equipment would be required for each step, resulting in a costly and time- consuming process, using up valuable lab space, and increasing the risk of sample contamination. The Cyto-Mine system can deliver up to 10 million tests in a single day compared with other systems on the market that deliver 10,000 tests in three weeks. Sphere Fluidics Filtered Glove Boxes 2300 Series Containment Glove Boxes are configured as an open-loop airflow system safely and effectively control particulates in a laboratory. Particulate control requires a glove box with HEPA or ULPA filters that are used to capture particulates. This product protects operators via negative pressure, which contains particulates inside the cham- ber. Particulates such as fine pharma- ceutical powders, aerosols, and mi- crobial contaminants can be captured by filters. HEPA/ULPA filter remove contaminants from the exhaust gas and draws exhaust particles through a filter to make it safe for indoor release. Alternatively, 2300 Series open-loop glove boxes can be factory-configured to positive pressure to pro- tect samples against airborne particles. As particulates can contaminate very clean or sterile samples, filtered glove boxes can be designed to isolate sterile objects or samples inside from outside particulates. This product is available with two ports or four ports, available in acrylic, static dissipative PVC, clear PVC, and polypropylene material. Cleatech Dual-Antigen IHC Staining Kit The ImmPRESS™ Duet Double Staining Polymer Kit for immunohistochemistry delivers all the advantages of polymer stains including low-background, high-signal intensity, and the elimination of off-target binding. The kit enables fast, well-defined lo- calization and visualization of two different target antigens on the same tissue section. ImmPRESS Duet combines highly active horseradish peroxidase (HRP) and alkaline phosphatase (AP) enzyme polymers, conjugated to anti-mouse IgG and anti-rabbit IgG secondary antibodies, to produce a ready-to-use HRP/AP formulation. Vector Laboratories Automated LC–MS System The automated ResolveX™ A200 positive-pressure workstation for LC–MS sample prep. This walk- away system offers unattended positive-pressure solid-phase extraction, providing increased walkaway times for LC–MS sample preparation workflows. Lighter and smaller than previous systems, it has been carefully designed to offer greater ease of use and enhanced performance. Eight-channel dispensing delivers a threefold increase in speed compared with single-channel dispensing, and the intuitive touchscreen control enables straightforward integration into labora- tory protocols for immediate productivity. The system is compatible with the company's range of 96-well plate and column-format smart con- sumables. Tecan Varicella Zoster Virus Antigens Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) is one of eight herpes viruses known to infect humans and is also known as chickenpox virus, vari- cella virus, zoster virus, and human herpesvirus type 3 (HHV-3).Two new VZV antigens—one a standard VZV antigen and the other a VZV glycoprotein anti- gen—have been expressly designed for use as integral components within solid- phase enzyme immunoas- say test procedures. These two antigens meet the needs of biopharmaceutical, clinical, drug-discovery, and life science researchers, as well as manufacturers of IVD test kits. Both VZV antigens exhibit exceptional pu- rity levels as a result of chromatography techniques. They both also feature an outstanding shelf life stability claim of 10 years from the date of manufacture and are offered in a standard sized 1.0-mg-filled vial, with larger, bulk configurations also being available. The Binding Site Trace Metal Fume Hoods EcoFlow Fume Hoods are offered in 24", 30", 36", and 48" width models, and are an economical solution for labo- ratories where space is limited. The hood size makes it ideal for additional hood space applications and student workstations. Because of the reduced size, this hood requires less exhaust air to be drawn from the lab. The fully adjustable sliding sash is made of 3/16"-thick shatter-proof Plexiglas and is fully adjustable to allow easy access into the fume chamber. "Easy-Touch" opera- tion allows for precise positioning. A full selection of accessories and components including work surfaces, base cabinets, plumbing, and electrical services are available. HEMCO
