New Brunswick CelliGen® BLU 5 L Packed-Bed Vessel

Eppendorf is proud to announce the release of the first single-use vessel to incorporate New Brunswick’s proprietary packed-bed impeller system. Pre-loaded with 150 g of Fibra-Cel® disks, and ready to use out of the box, the New Brunswick CelliGen® BLU 5 L Packed-Bed Single-Use vessel is a welcome addition to the growing portfolio of New Brunswick single-use products.

Customers of New Brunswick’s autoclavable packed-bed impeller have touted the maximum cell densities, product yields, and overall system performance. Targeted at secreted product applications, the packed-bed impeller system has proven successful using both anchorage dependent and suspension cell lines. Customers looking for a single-use solution for their application now have the option to incorporate the advantages of the packed bed system.

Portable System for Aspiration and Disposal of Biological Waste
The VACUSIP from INTEGRA provides an ideal benchtop solution for the safe aspiration and disposal of small volumes of liquid waste in clinical, molecular biology, biochemistry, and microbiology labs.

With an integrated vacuum pump and long-life battery, the VACUSIP is completely portable. To optimize battery run-time, the pump automatically switches on and off according to the vacuum needed for an aspiration task.

The unique VACUSIP hand operator enables precise fine regulation of liquid aspiration flow. A wide range of adapters are available for the hand operator enabling the VACUSIP to handle almost any liquid waste disposal task. A hydrophobic filter protects the unit from contamination and liquid entry. All components coming in contact with liquids can be autoclaved. Plus, exchanging a full collection bottle is both safe and easy.

Avanti J-26S High Performance Centrifuge
Provides Enhanced Environmental and Safety Benefits

For more information,
please visit
The newly redesigned Avanti J-26S high performance centrifuge from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences combines important environmental benefits with increased BioSafety features. Built upon benchmark performance, the J-26S provides high speed, low heat output, imbalance tolerance and low noise, and a range of ever-expanding separations capabilities. Ergonomic design, featuring lower instrument height and hands-free door operation, remains unchanged.

Dual-system rotor recognition automatically detects which rotor is installed and prevents it from being run above its maximum rated speed, and does so without shutting down the run. BioCertified rotors, instruments and labware reduce microbiological aerosols, while sterilizing grade filters capture harmful aerosols that might be expelled into the lab environment.

Application versatility is built in: the J-26S can process up to six liters of fermenter output, deliver a subcellular fraction, run 24 microplates at a time, and separate live-cell populations with centrifugal elutriation.
