Analytical laboratories have to provide sound results in a short time. Speed and reproducibility play a significant role here. Modern automation technology saves time, increases quality and reduces costs for the transport and distribution of samples. By Paul Kendall
The trend in automation technology is towards smaller, multifunctional components. Compact one-way flow control valves type VFOF-LE-BAH are one of the latest developments in the field of pneumatics. By Peter Kronawitter
INTEGRA has prepared an explanatory application guide that demonstrates the benefits of its electronic adjustable tip spacing VOYAGER II pipette range. Learn how to significantly reduce your pipetting hours and minimize transfer errors when pipetting liquids between tubes, vials and microplates. Example applications covered in the new application guide include screening compound libraries, genotyping, qPCR and cell seeding.
To effectively exploit the corporate knowledge officially recorded in an ELN, an organization should expect an ELN solution to benefit the entire company as well as each of its departments.
We’re all aware that the way research and development (R&D) is carried out today represents a huge change compared to a few years ago. With concepts such as ‘the lab of the future’ and the ‘paperless lab’ becoming more common, it’s important to understand what these terms really mean in practice. In this paper, we’ll be examining what the future holds and also the main drivers pushing the industry towards new ways of working. And just as R&D-focused organizations have had to adapt, we’ll conclude by examining the response of the R&D enterprise software sector to the challenges of change.
Many laboratory applications require liquid transfers between various labware formats. Due to varying requirements in their sample processing, different labware vessels are typically used for sample storage, processing and analysis tasks. Traditional multichannel pipettes were not designed to accommodate this wide variety of labware formats because their tip to tip spacing is optimized for use with standard 96 well microplates.
The pipeline of biopharmaceutical drugs is rich and becoming increasingly diverse. Many new biologic modalities are being developed as established therapeutic classes move through their lifecycle. Wide arrays of different types of molecules are expected to coexist within product portfolios and manufacturing networks. It is clear that this will have a significant impact on manufacturing facilities. Strategies need to be developed to prepare facilities for these challenges.
When selecting a glassware washer, there are many factors to consider, including productivity, durability, cost and performance. Let’s take a look at how certain washer attributes play into these sought after qualities.
