Novel two-part vial solves tricky pipetting problem

WATCHING a chemist struggling to pipette an unusually viscous oil sample into a standard autosampler vial, Jerry Finneran recognised that standard labware wasn’t making this tedious job any easier.   Because of the viscosity of the sample, the oil was adhering to…

Widest mouth of any autosampler vial

THE VASE-like neck of JG Finneran’s Versa Vial has a 9mm opening, which the company says is the largest for any autosampler vial.    This design makes it easier to add samples to vials by pipette, and safer to empty. The…

Vials have large openings for lab automation

RESEARCHERS working with limited sample volumes in automated laboratories may find benefits from using the large opening RAM vial, says JG Finneran. Measuring 12x32mm, the StepVial design is a combination of vial and insert with a 40% larger target area…

Trough plates boost productivity in multichannel pipetting

RESEARCHERS performing serial dilutions or working with reagents using multichannel pipettors might like to check out this new ‘trough plate’ from JG Finneran. These eight- and 12-channel reservoir trough plates hold liquid reagents in precise rows that align with pipette…

Multiple sample vials in 96-well microplate footprint

COMBINING the benefits of individual sample vials with the handling advantages of the standard 96-well microplate format, JG Finneran’s new Snap Seal Vials and Snap Top Caps may appeal to many laboratories. An adaptation of the company’s existing vials and…

Film seals microplates without contaminating samples

ANY MICROPLATE sealing film presents an obvious risk of allowing the adhesive to come into contact with the sample. JG Finneran says its new 96-Well PTFE Sealing Film features a patented design to seal samples into microplates without exposing them…

Aluminium microplate gives better heat transfer

THE PLASTIC microplate is such a standard feature of the modern laboratory that the advantages of other materials for specific applications might be forgotten. JG Finneran says its 96-well aluminium microplates are the preferred choice for lab work where uniform…

Chromatography vial made for lab automation

MADE of borosilicate glass in either clear or amber, the Ram Vial from JG Finneran is designed around the needs of laboratory automation systems. Its 12 x 32mm external dimensions are said to be optimum for robotic arm autosamplers to…
