Analyzing soil samples for percentage carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen

Application note 51 from Exeter Analytical Inc. illustrates how the Carbon, Hydrogen and Nitrogen (CHN) content of soil samples can be precisely and reproducibly determined using their Model 440 Elemental Analyzer.

New barcode library allows multiplexing of up to 96 different samples in a single sequencing run

Fluidigm Corporation has announced the availability of the Access Array™ Barcode Library for the Ion Torrent Personal Genome Machine (PGM) sequencer. This barcode library allows multiplexing of up to 96 different samples in a single sequencing run.

Determining CHN composition of filter samples

Exeter Analytical has developed a sensitive and precise protocol for direct determination of total Carbon (C), Hydrogen (H) and Nitrogen (N) in air and water filter samples.

Cryogenic storage rack for high volume samples

Durably constructed the thick-walled Arctic Rack-24 from Micronic is a new rack and cover enabling high integrity sample storage at ultra low (cryogenic) temperatures over extended periods of time.

Simplifying extraction of samples

Thermo Scientific's HyperSep SLE Range provides greater sample purity from biological samples

Processing of 96 samples in less than 30 minutes

Automation of a magnetic bead workflow for protein biomarker quantification

Lab labelling system has clear advantages for samples

Creates clear, durable labels which withstand low-temperature sample storage

Automated preparation of analytical samples

Agilent Technologies' 7696 Sample Prep Workbench reduces the cost per sample because it consumes smaller amounts of chemicals and solvents

SP Scientific has chosen Pittcon 2010 for the global launch of its new company name at well as exhibiting a range of exciting new innovations for its Rocket Evaporator.

Preparing Samples for Drug Discovery

The MiniSeal Plus device is capable of producing an accurate and tight seal on any SBS proposed standard, deep well or PCR microplate from 3 to 62millimetres in height.

Biosensors could detect poisons or proteins in blood samples

Biosensors, says Sean Ottewell, are about to take a huge leap forward in sensitivity following research successes both in Europe and the USA.

Uniform and precise cooling of cellular samples

The mechanically refrigerated Bio-Cool provides a reliable, safe and quiet alternative to controlled-rate freezers that utilise liquid nitrogen as the refrigerant.

Moisture content determination in samples

The TitraLab580 monoburette and TitraLab585 biburette Karl Fischer Titration Workstations provide efficient moisture content determination in quality control samples.

Triplex assay for samples with human duplex genomic DNA

Triplex nucleic acids have attracted attention due to their potential regulation of DNA transcription, replication, recombination, chromosome packing, and potential applications in gene therapy.

Reference material more accurately reflects patient's samples

Altoona Hospital, Altoona, Pennsylvania, USA, has selected Advanced Instruments' Renol urine reference control to calibrate the osmometer in its diagnostics laboratory. Osmometers are used by clinical laboratories toprovide the fastest results in diagnosing drug intoxication, renal function, head trauma, and other applications.

Historical crop samples link changes in wheat disease

Scientists at the UK's Rothamsted Research in Harpenden and the University of Reading have been able to recover DNA from crop diseases on wheat samples stored as part of a Victorian field experiment.
