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…

Flow chemistry chiller takes reactions to -88C

COOLING flow chemistry reactions below about -70C has traditionally presented challenges in the laboratory, requiring the use of pressurised gas and heat exchangers.   Now Uniqsis says it has developed an advanced chiller unit, the FlowSyn Polar Bear, which works with…
