New HPLC columns

17 Sep 2021

Macherey Nagel have expanded the HPLC product line to include the NUCLEODUR® PFAS, 3 µm HPLC and UHPLC columns

Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of highly stable synthetic organic compounds which are used in a wide variety of industrial and commercial applications as additives in consumer products such as fire-fighting foam, fiber coating, cookware, paper finishing and food packaging to name a few. Within mainstream media they are often referred to as "forever chemicals". These substances strongly bioaccumulate within our natural environment and have become ubiquitous throughout the world since the 1940's.

NUCLEODUR® PFAS, 3 µm HPLC columns provide a solution for analysing and detecting these substances. Macherey Nagel columns show a high batch-to-batch reproducibility which make them well suited for LC-MS/MS analyses due to low bleeding characteristics. The new columns are available in a 2 mm ID and 100 or 50 mm lengths. Each column is accompanied by documentation which certifies and identifies each column to it's respective batch for PFAS analyses in the laboratory.

NUCLEODUR® PFAS Delay, 5 µm columns provide high retention for PFAS compounds and are used to retain PFAS contaminants from the HPLC system, which could otherwise falsify the sample to be analysed. For this purpose the NUCLEODUR® PFAS Delay column is connected in flow direction between the mixing vessel and the sample injector, as seen in the flow diagram below.


HPLC and UHPLC columns

Stainless steel HPLC columns for analytical or preparative applications are an ideal choice for your daily labwork.

NUCLEOSIL HPLC phases have gained wide acceptance as routine chromatographic packings for differing fields in modern chromatography. It is one of the first spherical silicas used in HPLC and is a reliable choice for routine analyses.

NUCLEODUR silica is an ideal base material for modern HPLC phases. It is the result of MACHEREY-NAGEL's pioneering research in chromatography for almost 50 years. NUCLEODUR HPLC columns with 1.8 µm particle size for increased separation efficiency are used for UHPLC applications.

Due to core-shell technology NUCLEOSHELL columns provide efficient separation results with a comparably lower back pressure to fully porous materials.

HandyStep® Touch S

23 Jul 2021

Repetitive pipettes are the first choice when it comes to efficient liquid dispensing. Positive displacement pipettes are often the correct solution for pipetting viscous media. The new HandyStep® touch from BRAND combines both features.

With the intuitive touchscreen display, you are able to conveniently swipe back and forth between functions and always have an overview of the essential information on your work steps. Operation is easy, even with protective gloves on. The days of manually changing tips are over as on the HandyStep® touch, lightly tapping the eject icon on the display is enough to eject the tip.

The HandyStep® touch repetitive pipette automatically recognises the volume of the new BRAND PD-Tips II. This saves time and reduces the risk of error. Tips from many other manufacturers can also be used, providing maximum flexibility.

Charging is easy and efficient: simply place the HandyStep® touch in the inductive charging stand and the battery automatically starts charging.

Automatic tip size detection with Brand PD-Tips II
The HandyStep® touch saves time and prevents errors by automatically recognising BRAND PD-Tips II via the patented coding on the pistons. After insertion, the tip size is automatically recognised and displayed making it easy to select the volume to be dispensed. When a new PD-Tip of the same size is inserted, all instrument settings are maintained.

Product Review of the new Haier CO₂ Incubator

01 Jul 2021

Rowe Scientific would like to introduce an informative and in-depth look into the HCP-168 Haier CO Incubator. This is a part of our “Product Review” series of videos which are designed to show you key features and benefits from our quality range of instruments and consumables. In order to be notified of future reviews please visit our YouTube page and subscribe to our channel.

The Haier Biomedical CO Incubator with Internet of Things (IoT) functionality and a 180°C dry heat sterilisation feature, provides a safe reproducible growth environment for biological cell cultures.

Ideal for use in a typical Life Science Laboratory setting with the added benefit and flexibility of installing in an under-bench setting, or even in a stacked configuration. Please see our video review below: 

The key features and benefits of the Haier HCP-168 CO incubator are as follows: 

  • Uniform and Stable Temperature:
    Temperature is precisely controlled within the fluctuation range of ±0.1℃ to ensure the normal growth of cells throughout their life cycle.
  • Precise CO Concentration:
    A new type of IR sensor controls CO concentration sensitively to keep the culture medium stable in a weak alkaline environment.
  • 180℃ Dry-heat Sterilization:
    Easy and effective sterilization of microorganisms including bacteria, fungi and strong resistant microplasma, all achievable at 180°C high temperatures without the need for consumables. Simply press the “sterilization key” to activate and complete the sterilization process automatically in just 12 hours.
  • IoT (Internet of Things) Mobile Application: The operation of incubator can be monitored at any time through a mobile APP or computer terminal. The alarm and service functions are available with just the touch of a button.

Above is an example of the abilities of the Haier CO Incubator. Should you require further product information or purchasing details, please contact us by clicking the link below.
