Precise control of GSM chip reactor temperature

HotChip from Uniqsis controls GSM chip reactor temperature

A new heater to give precise temperature control of flow chemistry glass static mixer (GSM) chip reactors has been launched by Uniqsis. HotChip is said to be easy to use as a standalone unit, and can also be controlled with…

Dry bath controls temperature to 0.1C

THE Peltier-driven EchoTherm IC50 chilling/heating dry bath from Torrey Pines Scientific promises tight control of sample temperature, to within 0.1C over a range from-10 to +110C. The unit’s temperature probe is inserted directly into the sample or sample block, sensing…

Maintaining a permanent chill in the lab

SP SCIENTIFIC offers a wide range of compact and quiet recirculating chillers with heat removal rates from 1050 to 24,000W and temperature ranges from -90C to +150C. The company says an optimised SP Scientific chiller is available to suit most…

Controlling temperature during live-cell imaging

A CONSTANT concern when imaging live cells in the laboratory is maintaining a survivable environment for the microscopic subjects. Now Okolab has introduced its T Plates to provide a steady temperature on the microscope stage. Said to be compatible with any…

Better temperature control means better viscometry results

THE LATEST addition to RheoSense’s VROC (viscometer/rheometer-on-a-chip) family, the Microvisc TC, provides precise temperature control for the handheld Microvisc viscometer.  Temperature dependence is one of the most important factors in determining viscosity, and a tiny variation can generate significantly errors…

Chilling benchtop incubators are vibration-free

AIMED at protein crystallography and other life science laboratory applications, the latest EcoTherm chilling incubators from Torrey Pines Scientific have a larger 100 litre capacity.  Exploiting the Peltier effect for heating and chilling, these units require no motors or compressors…

Heating block is safer and faster than oil bath

A SAFER, more productive method of heating samples in a variety of laboratory glassware is the promise of the DrySyn Multi from Asynt.   This device converts any standard laboratory hotplate stirrer into a reaction block which can accommodate up to three…

Temperature logger uses Wifi connection

A NEW based data logging temperature sensor from Measurement Computing will continue to log readings even if its Wifi connection is lost.  The WiFi-501-TP uses a Wifi network to send its readings wirelessly to a PC, where it can be viewed by…

High-sensitivity thermal imaging for scientific research

PROMISING the highest sensitivity on a portable thermal imaging camera for scientific research and development, Flir Systems says its SC650 and SC450 camera packs offer ‘no-compromise’ flexibility.  With its uncooled vanadium oxide (VoX) micro­bolometer detector, the Flir SC650 generates 640×480…
