Specimen misidentification on slides can be a major risk in lab operations due to the difficulty of reading handwritten patient data or the use of difficult-to-apply xylene-resistant labels. That’s why direct-to-slide printers such as Primera’s Signature Slide Printer have recently become popular in laboratories all over the world.
Toshiba Imaging Systems Division (ISD) introduced the IK-HD3H, an ultra-small, 2.1 megapixel, 1080p 3-chip CMOS HD video camera. The new, feature-rich camera is the first in a series of two CMOS remote-head HD cameras, both interchangeable with Toshiba Imaging’s new IK-HD3D controller.
SCHURTER has announced that its compact KEA series power entry module, with 1- or 2-pole fuseholder, now mates with V-Lock cord sets. The KEA’s new V-Lock compatible feature prevents unintended disconnection of the power from the equipment.
In automation and robotics, many applications are characterized by high energy and high torque at the same time. Spatial restrictions also mean that drives must be short, have a long service life and be maintenance-free. The newly redesigned EC-i motors from maxon motors offer solutions that fit these requirements perfectly.
The Aire-Stream Fume Hood is constructed entirely of chemical resistant, flame retardant, non-metallic composite resin materials and features an exclusive “Unitized” construction that does not require screws, bolts, rivets, or metallic hardware to assemble.
Instron revealed its new Digital Image Correlation (DIC) Software. This new combination of hardware and software is designed to optically detect strain and displacement within a defined area on the surface of specimens or components exposed to loads, and visualize these in real-time on a computer screen, so that they can be traced over the entire duration of the test.
The new Dymax BlueWave LED VisiCure high-intensity spot-curing system offers many advantages over conventional spot-curing systems including no consumable bulbs to change, no warm-up, cooler curing temperatures, and high-intensity output for thousands of hours.
Using an innovative twin-head design, the Thomas Model 1420 miniature diaphragm pump achieves higher flows than conventional standard diaphragm pumps of the same physical size. The durable, oil-less Model 1420 pump is designed for applications requiring high flow in an extremely compact package, especially in the medical, automotive and business equipment markets.
The new Dymax Model 300 dispensing system features a pneumatic, normally closed diaphragm valve that is designed for use with low- to medium-viscosity fluids. The valve’s diaphragm design prevents fluid from contacting the actuating components.
KD Scientific has introduced its new Allegro Peristaltic Pump System. This innovative new pumping system allows maintenance free, continuous flow pumping for various fluids. The Allegro Peristaltic Pump System can easily dispense in forward or reverse direction using the touch screen display.
