The Solution Center can be accessed from the BioStorage Technologies homepage. Visitors simply need to complete a short online registration form. Once registered, users will find information related to strategic consulting, supply chain, sample bioprocessing, sample storage, onsite management, project management, technology solutions, and business continuity.
Enhanced Raman Spectrometer
HORIBA Scientific has launched the XploRA™ PLUS, a compact Raman spectrometer that compromises on space but does not compromise on image resolution, data quality, and reliability for multi-sample detection.

The XploRA PLUS is a high performance and fully confocal Raman microscope based on the XploRA ONE™. It offers options such as multiple laser wavelengths, simple operation, complete automation, EMCCD detection, AFM coupling, Raman polarization, and even a fully functional light microscope. It also uses deep cooled CCD detector technology instead of air cooled CCD detectors. HORIBA’s SWIFT ultrafast Raman imaging provides high speed detector-stage coordination to make millisecond Raman mapping a reality.

Coupled with LabSpec software, the XploRA PLUS offers a one click user interface, secure logins, and automated Raman analysis. It is also compatible with atomic force microscopes for combined Raman-AFM and Tip Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy.

New ‘Intelligent’ Cell Incubator Line
Panasonic has released a new line of smart incubators ideal for high temperature and contamination sensitive cell lines or media. Equipped with full-color touch screen based input, the CellIQ series of incubators provide ease of use and speed of operation.

The CellIQ line delivers a decontamination speed of under 3 hours and a CO2 recovery speed of 2 minutes. It replaces standard heat decontamination in favor of Sterisonic® hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), along with SafeCell UV technology. The CellIQ line's main feature is its touch LCD based input that lets users have complete control over their cells. It can be used to work on different protocols, add set-point configurations, sensitive parameters, and even define security.

Dual infrared sensor detectors are in charge of monitoring and replacing the CO2 content after multiple door openings, without any overshoot. Temperature is controlled by a direct heat and air jacket system, instead of the more commonly used water jacket system. Humidity is managed by Panasonic’s ‘dew stick’ coating.
