One month till we open the doors

With just days remaining before the opening of Lab Africa, the excitement is beginning to settle in. It is hard to believe that it has been two years since the last big event in Johannesburg and alarming to believe that if you miss Lab Africa 2015 you will have to wait till 2017 before you can discover all of the process and laboratory solutions on display. 

Registrations to visit have reached a record high, perhaps because the 2015 event will showcase products from around the globe including products that have never been presented in South Africa.

Stop Pipetting Problems Ruining Your Experiments with MICROMAN® E

According to scientists, the main pipetting errors with air displacement pipettes, when they aren’t human, are due to problem liquids. To help scientists counter those problems, Gilson has announced the official worldwide launch of its new positive displacement pipette: MICROMAN® E.

The solution for problem liquids pipetting

MICROMAN E positive displacement pipette with its Capillary Pistons helps scientists counter common pipetting problems that may affect accuracy and precision when working with problem liquids. Problems they may have faced include: microliters of viscous liquids sticking to the tip of the pipette, volatile liquids creating leakage in the tip or even under-delivered hot liquids.

MICROMAN E with its positive displacement principle solves these common problems and also avoids contamination by isolating the aspirated sample from the inside part of the pipette, eliminating the air space between the piston and sample, to offer the highest precision.

No risk of contamination

MICROMAN E and CPs are the strongest barrier against residual sample carry-over, aerosol contamination, and cross-contamination when pipetting liquids such as DNA fragments, PCR templates, enzyme solutions and buffers.

With MICROMAN E, you protect your pipette, your sample and yourself!

Advanced ergonomic design

MICROMAN E ensures accuracy and precision with the highest ease-of-use and control through an ergonomic design with large action button, comfortable finger rest and visible volumeter on front of the body, a patented QuickSnap unique CP fitting system that makes it the only positive displacement pipette as intuitive and simple to use as regular pipettes and tips, and a volume control button to secure the manipulation from accidental volume changes.
About Gilson
Gilson provides high quality, dependable solutions for today's demanding liquid chromatography, solid phase extraction, gel permeation chromatography clean-up requirements, and manual liquid handling, including the world-renowned PIPETMAN® brand. Gilson has worldwide sales and service supporting the pharmaceutical, biotech, environmental, clinical, food & beverage, and forensic markets. Gilson's innovative products revolutionize the lab; providing the durability, flexibility, modularity and ease-of-use the industry has come to expect from Gilson.

Introducing the Pegasus® GC-HRT 4D

St. Joseph, Mich.— LECO is pleased to announce the launch of Pegasus GC-HRT 4D, which combines the industry standard for comprehensive GCxGC with the highest performance time-of-flight mass spectrometer on the market. This latest innovation in comprehensive GCMS provides scientists with the unprecedented ability to investigate complex samples and identify unknown analytes with the ultimate confidence.

“This product has been eagerly anticipated in the marketplace, as we have fantastic new capabilities and our collaborators are very pleased with the results they are obtaining,” says Lorne Fell, Separation Science Product Manager. “We have built upon our years of GCxGC experience to deliver an appropriate balance of familiar and innovative new features. As we gain traction in our key markets—metabolomics, petroleum, and environmental—we predict this machine will empower our customers to truly discover what other analytes are in their samples instead of playing a guessing game.”

These advances in technology are paired with LECO’s ChromaTOF-HRT® brand software with High Resolution Deconvolution™ (HRD™), which is tailored to get the most out of high resolution data using NIST and Accurate Mass Libraries. Work flows enabled by features such as pseudo-molecular ions via Chemical Ionization, leveraging retention time matching, isotope patterns, and mass accuracy of deconvoluted fragments—all lead to confident identification of unknown species. With mass accuracies of 1 ppm and peak capacity potential at least two times greater than any currently available on the marketplace, the Pegasus GC-HRT 4D is the solution to winning the fight against coelution and comprehensively characterizing even the most complex samples.
