Streamline Your GC Workflow with Precision Hydrogen SL
Streamline Your GC Workflow with Precision Hydrogen SL
With Precision Hydrogen SL, Peak Scientific has engineered a state-of-the-art gas generator for labs requiring hydrogen gas to support their GC flame detector, creating a more streamlined solution for the lab’s workflow. Many labs performing GC-FID use hydrogen gas cylinders for their analyses. This has been the more traditional method of supplying laboratory grade gas to GC instruments and flame detectors. However, by switching to an on-site hydrogen generator, labs benefit from having the convenience of gas flow available 24/7. Producing hydrogen gas with a hydrogen generator means labs can have a consistent and dependable supply of gas. This way, analysists performing GC-FID will have peace of mind knowing there will be no disruption imposed on their analyses due to a gas supply shortage or a delay in a delivery – issues that can often occur when relying on gas cylinders. With Precision Hydrogen SL, Peak Scientific has engineered a state-of-the-art gas generator

High-quality tubing for diverse applications
High-quality tubing for diverse applications
Spetec GmbH has grown into one of the world's major manufacturers of peristaltic pumps, which are now produced both as made-to-measure units and as OEM versions in a wide variety of types. And one thing that these types of pumps always need is tubing. Peristalsis refers to the synchronous contraction of the muscles in hollow organs that propagates as a wave and transports the contents in a given direction. This is the way in which organs such as the human esophagus or intestine work, and they act in the same way as the pump tubing. In humans, hollow organs such as these are of exceptionally high quality, which often allows them to do their job reliably for 80 years or more. This is an indication of how high the quality of the tubing material needs to be in peristaltic systems in order to guarantee acceptable durability. This required decades of development, since the conditions of use were, and still are, so varied. And who should know better what degree of elasticity

Beyond the common procedures of the European pharmacopoeia, e.g. the Glass Test (for determining the hydrolytic resistance of pharmaceutical glass ware) and the Rubber Closure Test, these applications include a variety of special applications, such as material tests and the simulation of environmental conditions. In more detail, these special applications include processes for the simulation of ageing phenomena and moisture resistance. Examples given are the Pressure Cooker Test according to DIN EN 60749-33 and the HAST Test (highly accelerated stress test) according to DIN EN 60068-2-66. The Glass Test is a test method that examines the hydrolytic resistance of the inner surface of glass containers and eventually classifies them. This is done by determining the amount of sodium and other alkaline earth metals or oxides of alkaline earth that

In-tube or in-well thermal cycler calibration method Comparison of temperature dynamics
In-tube or in-well thermal cycler calibration method
Comparison of temperature dynamics During the 19th International Metrology Congress in Paris, CYCLERtest presented a comparison between an in-tube- and in-well thermal cycler calibration method. Preferred method The study - performed with BIOplastics’ tubes - showed that it is feasible to develop an in-tube method with a low measurement uncertainty. However, due to the large impact of the tube-to-well fit on the measurement uncertainty and the large variability between tubes, it is not practical to use in-tube methods for metrology purposes. An in-well thermal cycler calibration method is therefore the preferred option. Read all about the research in the abstract Comparison of temperature dynamics of various thermal cycler methods.

Nature reports that MR Solutions’ preclinical imaging system Helps researchers better understand ageing processes
Nature reports that MR Solutions’ preclinical imaging system
Helps researchers better understand ageing processes Research published in Nature by the Korea Advanced Institute of Science (KAIST) found that lymphatic vessels in the scull involved in the clearance of cerebrospinal fluid often become compromised with age. This finding was only possible through advances in imaging technology. Using MR Solutions’ 3T/17 preclinical liquid-helium free MRI system the KAIST researchers observed how the meningeal lymphatic vessels (mLVs), mainly in the basal part of the skull, are involved in the clearance of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). They found that, as people age, the integrity of the mLVs and subsequent CSF drainage is impaired. The team’s findings are helping to better understand how these mLVs contribute to the neuropath physiological processes that are associated with the ageing process. The full research findings have been published in the scientific journal Nature, August 2019.
