Oct. 10, 2005
This showcase of lab equipment offers products that will help keep your R&D and QA/QC processes up to snuff.
Microemulsion processorThe M-110L Laboratory Microfluidizer processor is a CE-compliant, high-shear fluids processing system for lab volume microemulsions, cell disruption and microencapsulations. It is used for producing high yields in cell rupture with minimal processing and easy recovery. Additionally, it achieves high pressure with low air draw, which is particularly useful in the production of liposomes, injectable drugs and emollients. Standard features include a stainless steel full system enclosure, small diameter tubing, a 200 ml glass reservoir and removable circulation loops and cooling oil.Microfluidics; Newton, Mass.800-370-5452; www.microfluidicscorp.comHigh-temperature liquid chromatographAlthough the vendor is a manufacturer of aroma chemicals, it also has produced a high-temperature liquid chromatography tool to analyze the sensory characteristics of food products. LC Taste allows researchers to separate aroma chemicals and flavor chemicals from solutions using a non-toxic blend of solvents. The vendors claims this is the first time that mechanical analyses and human taste tests can be performed simultaneously on flavors and aroma compounds.Symrise; Holzminden, Germany

Mechanical pipettor

The mLine mechanical single channel pipettor family now includes the m20 pipettor for the volume range of 2- 20µl. Together with a light tip ejection force and ergonomical handle design, benefits includes reducing the risk of repetitive strain injuries. Safety features comprise full autoclavability and tip cone filters, including a filter ejection system to prevent the contamination of the pipettor and the samples.
