Impact on Facility Design

The Publisher's Blog
At the risk of sounding political, I feel compelled to share my thoughts on some recent observations, as well as the absence of observations I’d like to have.

First, I’m still dying to learn what the regulations are that are keeping American businesses from expanding their operations and hiring people. We keep hearing that the government has to illuminate regulations that are killing jobs, but I just can’t determine what these are. Surely the biopharmaceutical industry isn’t suggesting...

DNA Isolation Kit
The Optek all-in-one Control 8000 Universal Analyzer is a powerful, microprocessor-based converter for use in biotech applications including pre- and post-column chromatography monitoring. The C8000 provides optical density or forward scatter turbidity measurements in the ultraviolet (UV), visible (VIS), and near infrared (NIR) ranges.
In addition to optical sensors, the C8000 monitors up to two pH sensors and two conductivity sensors with integrated temperature measurements. One converter assures easy operation with an intuitive user interface in a compact package.

The combination of C8000 and ACF60 conductivity sensors allows a wide dynamic range from 0–10 μS/cm up to 0–850 mS/cm with the same sensor.

Entry Level Electronic Microplate Sealer
Porvair Sciences has designed the versatile and compact MiniSeal microplate sealer for handling smaller batches of plates in preparation for storage. MiniSeal requires only one single electrical outlet to operate – no compressed air source or dedicated compressor is needed.

Unlike hand-operated manual units, the MiniSeal uses a pre-set sealing pressure to deliver highly reproducible plate seals every time. The MiniSeal ensures operator safety with its unique twin-button operation to produce an accurate and tight seal on any standard, deep-well, or PCR microplate from 3–62 mm in height.

Offering adjustable temperature heat-sealing from 50°C up to
200°C, MiniSeal is able to operate optimally with most foil and film seals.
