This highly precise, easy to use, benchtop instrumentation for fast, low-cost nucleic acid extraction offers faster, cleaner and more efficient magnetic bead extractions for high-purity nucleic acid recovery. PSS has developed the unique Magtration (magnetic filtration) technology to optimally separate magnetic beads in a fully automated workflow. It is very compact and frees up extra space.
Multichannel Pipetting Robot (Assist Plus), Integra Biosciences Switzerland
Modern laboratories increase throughput with Multichannel pipettes. But prolonged manual pipetting takes up precious time and can lead to repetitive strain injuries. ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot streamlines routine pipetting tasks at an affordable price. Using electronic multichannel pipettes, the system automates pipetting tasks, eliminates physical strain and ensures superior reproducibility and error-free pipetting.
Biosafety Cabinet, Bioair Italy
The new Class II (type A2) Microbiological Biosafety Cabinets SafeMate EZ series includes premium features in an entry-level priced cabinet. The “V”-shaped antiobstruction grill allows working without worrying about armrests, while the self-positioning electrically operated front sash makes sure that the front aperture is always at the right size for comfort and safety.
Nano spectrophotometer, Jenway UK
This Genova Bio is a simple, low cost, easy to use UV/visible spectrophotometer that is dedicated to life science applications. The fast, responsive color touchscreen and pre-programmed methods for the measurement of nucleic acid concentration and purity, protein assays and cell density, make this spectrophotometer the ideal addition to any laboratory.
Freezer / Refrigerator, Pol-Eko, Poland
This Laboratory Freezer is highly recommended and ideal for long-term storage of samples and biological material for research, storage of easily decomposing material (e.g. solid-state), freeze resistance tests (e.g. of building materials: concrete, wood, etc.), pre-freezing, plasma storage. It comes with LAN, USB ports for data transfer, multi-segment time and temperature programs, visual and sound alarm and more.
Bunsen, Fireboy, Integra Biosciences Switzerland
Bunsen Burners are conventionally used widely as standard equipment for routine flame sterilization work but a huge risk factor lies within. The FIREBOY Portable Safety Bunsen is a safe alternative as it not only prevents the danger of gas leaks but also reduces the risks of fire or burns if unintentionally left on.
