The software works alongside industry-standard ro- botic platforms and corporate databases to improve antibody discovery and cell line development work„ows. The Cyto- Mine Studio Software Suite has updated features and user interfaces for the Cyto-Mine Instrument Control Software and the o†-line Cyto-Mine Data Analysis Software. It has an application programming interface (API) that enables easy communication with many industry-standard robotic platforms and links to corporate databases for easy data transfer, and includes features such as single cell dispensing to individual wells of 96- and 384- well microtiter plates and software data outputs from single cell imaging analysis. Sphere Fluidics www.sphere„ Sample Cooler The AirJet XR Sample Cooler is designed to provide precision sample temperature control (–90°C to +100°C) for NMR, EPR, and X-ray di†raction instruments using a mechanically refrigerated, temperature-controlled air stream. Unlike systems that use cryogens such as liquid nitrogen or carbon dioxide to control temperature, the AirJet XR requires only house-com- pressed air to control temperature. When dry air passes through the AirJet XR, it is cooled by the mechanical refrigeration system and heat input is precisely regulated to control the temperature of the air stream. This design approach creates outstanding temperature stability for instruments of just ±0.1°C, improving the accuracy and repeatability of your experiments. Long non-magnetic delivery lines allow positioning of the AirJet XR refrigeration system remotely from your sample area. Compact in design, it enables rapid transitions and precise control for „ows up to 2 SCFM (56 lpm). SP Scientic www.spscienti¡ Heating Blocks DrySyn is the environmentally friendly heating system of choice worldwide enabling clean, safe synthesis without the hazards and problems associated with silicon oil baths or heating mantles. Made of chemically resistant, anodized aluminum, the DrySyn range of heat- ing blocks o†er excellent visibility and heating performance to over 300ºC and can heat a reaction 25% faster than oil baths. The new DrySyn inserts enable scientists to heat reactions in 11.80mm-, 15.00mm-, and 27.65mm-diameter vials. In addition, the ADS2-2 DrySyn MAXI stand-alone 2L base is designed for laboratories wanting to heat larger-scale „ask-based reac- tions, and the DrySyn SuperMAXI 4L insert is intended for use with the SuperMAXI 5L base. They provide an excellent heating and stirring performance, without the inherent risks, mess, and negative environmental impact and cost o† oil disposal. DrySyn heating blocks help you create a safer, cleaner, more e§cient and sustainable working environment. Asynt Compact Refrigerators A new series of compact refrigerators has been speci¡cally developed to address the need of clinical laboratories and patient care facilities for cold storage equipment that enable secure and energy-e§cient storage of vaccines, medicines, lab kits, and breast milk while o†ering quiet operation and a small footprint. Powered by Phononic's solid-state cooling technol- ogy, the new TSG refrigerators have been designed to provide uninterrupted temperature stability and cleanroom-compatible readiness for reliable storage of the most sensitive materials. Furthermore, the systems o†er whisper-quiet operation at less than 35 dbA, meaning they can be placed in clinical labo- ratories, nurse's stations, and even patient rooms and intensive care units, without disrupting the work environment and patient comfort. The TSG Series refrigerators are available in under counter and countertop con¡gurations to suit varying application needs. Thermo Fisher Scientic www.thermo¡ Circular Photodiodes The AXUV20A circular photode- tectors can be used for radiation, electron, and photon response in the ultraviolet (UV), extreme ultraviolet (EUV), through visible and near- infrared (IR) wavelength ranges. The circular device, with an active area of 5.5-mm diameter, features sensitivity to low-energy electrons. The AXUV20A photodiode shunt resistance is 100 MOhm, minimum. Reverse breakdown voltage is 5 volts, minimum, and 10 volts, typically. Other features include capacitance at four nF, typically, with a maximum of 10 nF, and a rise time of 2 µsec. The AXUV series of photodiodes exhibit a response to electron energy levels as low as 100eV. Operating and storage temperatures range from –10 °C to +40 °C in ambient environments and from –20 °C to +80 °C in nitrogen or vacuum environments. Opto Diode Automated Western Blotting Jess is an automated Western blotting system for chemiluminescent immunode- tection, two-color „uorescence (for multi- plexing), protein normalization, and even traditional chemiluminescent Western blots. Simply load your sample, antibodies, and reagents into the plate, insert your plate and cartridge into Jess, and press start. All assay steps from protein separation, immunoprob- ing, detection and analysis of data are fully au- tomated. With just 30 minutes of experimental setup and 3 hours of hands-free runtime, you can be analyzing data for your next publication or grant. Jess can dramatically increase your throughput by automating the protein separation and immunodetection of traditional Western blotting. Everything happens inside a capillary, and Jess precisely controls the protein separa- tion and reagent additions and incubations, even the detection. Use Jess' „uorescent capabili- ties and multiplex your proteins for even higher throughput. With her 13- and 25-sample capil- lary cartridges, you'll get the throughput you need, with minimum hands-on time. Protein Simple
