Versatile Image Analysis System
FEI announces the availability of its Tecnai Arctica™ transmission electron microscope (TEM) for structural biology research. The Tecnai Arctica incorporates sophisticated automation to elucidate the three-dimensional (3D) structure of biological macromolecules and molecular complexes.

The Tecnai Arctica is specifically designed for structural biologists who are focused on increasing productivity and reducing cost-of-ownership. The system’s high-throughput and easy-to-use, highly-automated workflow, combined with its lower acquisition cost, minimizes the overall cost of analysis per structure.

The Tecnai Arctica is part of a tightly-integrated, start-to-finish workflow, comprising cryo-sample preparation, data acquisition and analysis, and final visualization. Its cryo-sample autoloader, combined with automated target identification and low dose imaging, enable unattended acquisition of large SPA data sets. Its streamlined user interface and extensive automation of routine operations and set up procedures significantly lower the threshold for operator expertise.

ParticleTrack E25 Provides Accessible Inline Characterization
Mettler-Toledo is pleased to announce the launch of ParticleTrack™ E25, its new inline particle system characterization tool. Modifying focused beam reflectance technology (FBRM®) for use in settings where pneumatic motors are impractical, the fully electric ParticleTrack E25 measures aqueous particle and droplet systems.

The probe-based technology eliminates sampling’s measurement variability for simpler, faster, and more cost-effective system characterization. Based on traditional FBRM technology, yet requiring no air/gas supply, this robust FBRM probe allows real-time product-quality optimization, greater formulation stability, and enhanced processing whether particle systems are being observed in 2 L beakers, 20,000 L vessels, or pipeline flow.

ParticleTrack E25 is ideal for measuring modern manufacturing processes such as crystallization and precipitation; homogenization and emulsification; and solid/liquid or liquid/solid separations including flocculation, coalescence, and flotation.
New LC Column Line for Protein Separations
Protea Biosciences Group, Inc. announces the introduction of Amplus® wide-pore core shell HPLC columns, a new line of liquid chromatography columns specifically designed for intact proteins analysis.

This new family of HPLC silica-based columns employ core shell technology combined with a specific porosity designed to facilitate proteins separation, including those with high molecular weight.

Amplus, the new brand of analytical columns, has been developed in collaboration with the Japanese firm CromaNik Technologies. It is available in different chemistries and porosities to facilitate and resolve the most difficult separations in top down proteomics studies.
