SpillFix: Quickly absorb spills
SpillFix: Quickly absorb spills
The eco-friendly SpillFix granular can be safely used to remove spills from the most porous or uneven surfaces. Safe to use SpillFix is a 100% natural product made out of coconut coir that unlike clay-based granulars does not release cancerous silica dust. In addition, SpillFix is a lightweight product with a microsponge honeycomb structure that is highly unlikely to cause any straining or lower back injuries. Absorbs immediately and effectively Thanks to its honeycomb structure, SpillFix granulars immediately start pulling liquid inside and quickly absorb any liquid. On top of this, 2.8 kg of SpillFix can absorb the same spill volume as 22.5 kg of clay based granular, so a lot less product is needed to achieve better results. Unlike many clay-based granulars, SpillFix does not leave any slick residue behind and can be mopped up with a few swift swipes.

Clean room workplace CleanBoy®
Particle-free air for all industry and research workplaces SPETEC GmbH in Erding/Munich is presenting a new product in the field of clean room technology. With CleanBoy®, users can achieve highly efficient clean room conditions at any workplace at little investment cost. The need for extremely clean conditions is becoming ever more important in research and production as well as during service operations. The aim of clean room technology is to remove particles of a diameter of 0.12 µm or larger from a defined space in which the most exacting cleanliness standards guarantee a reliable workflow. This can be achieved using a clean room module from the SuSi® (Super Silent) series which is positioned directly above the work area. Exceptionally pure, filtered air is then passed over the work area. While the normal indoor atmosphere contains somewhere between 9,000 and 15,000 particles per liter, the use of clean room technology reduces this to a mere 3 particles per liter. Parts or components produced in the mechanical engineering,

Piezo nanopositioning A key enabler of super-resolution microscopy
Piezo nanopositioning
A key enabler of super-resolution microscopy The days of looking down the lens of a microscope are fast being eclipsed by super-resolution microscopy (SRM) that allows researchers to investigate and understand intracellular processes and interactions at a molecular level. Given the significant improvement in resolution achieved by SRM techniques, the ability to position samples and objectives accurately is obviously a key requirement to fully exploit the capabilities of these systems. Fortunately, piezo positioning systems – already considered the gold standard for the fine positioning of both sample stages and objectives in a broad range of microscopy techniques – offer the sub-nanometre accuracy required. Piezo actuators are currently used for three main applications in SRM: Z-positioning of objectives, manipulation of illumination systems (such as in light sheet and 4Pi techniques), and positioning of sample stages. Each of these applications obviously has unique requirements in terms of range of travel, reproducibility
