what’s new Centrifugal evaporator Genevac’s EZ-2 Elite centrifugal evaporator has been designed for final drying of stubborn samples and fast lyophilisation of HPLC fractions. Benefiting from a high-performance scroll pump that delivers deep vacuum, the product is able to routinely remove even high-boiling solvents such as DMSO and NMP. Internal heating of vapour duct and system components ensures that such challenging solvents only collect in the SpeedTrap condenser and not anywhere else. The condenser comes with automatic defrost and drain technology. The evaporator controls the condenser and the solvent collection vessel, offering mid-method defrosting and draining. Using the SpeedTrap, the Genevac LyoSpeed method of fast lyophilisation of HPLC fractions is possible. The product is able to concentrate or completely dry samples. It is compatible with a wide selection of sample holders, enabling evaporation from common sample container formats. The system is able to take tubes, flasks and vials directly from the synthesis process, eliminating manual handling, increasing recoveries and removing the chance of cross-contamination. Running the product is intuitive: just load the samples, select maximum safe temperature for samples, select solvent type and hit start. Offering unattended operation capability, the unit requires no user training; even a beginner can competently use the system within 5 min. Scitek Australia Pty Ltd www.scitek.com.au

Durable microscope slide boxes Microscope slide boxes from Heathrow Scientific are colour coded for easy identification. They are suitable for storage or transportation of standard size slides (76 x 26 mm) as they have a durable plastic outer case and are cork lined. The stackable slide boxes are secured either with a rust-resistant, nickel-plated clasp and hinge pin (100 place) or by a thumb-latch lock mechanism (50 place). Each slot is numbered to correspond to the slide inventory sheet on the inside cover of the box. They are suitable for any laboratory and can be used for any application that involves slides.
