what’s new

Floor-mounted fume hoods The UniMax series of hoods has been expanded to include a wide selection of models that feature greater interior working dimensions. Standard models range from 1.8 to 7.3 m wide, 1.2 to 2.4 m deep and 2.1 to 4.9 m high. Botanical extractions, tall apparatus/distillation processes, roll-in reactors or long integrated instrumentation systems can be easily accommodated in the hoods. The floor-mounted hoods are constructed of chemical-resistant, nonconductive modular panels featuring composite resin surface material. This modular design allows for on-site assembly and the ability to disassemble at a later date, move and reassemble. Custom sizes and designs can be built to exact specifications. HEMCO Corporation

Homogeniser

The Omni GLH850 laboratory homogeniser is a high-performance instrument capable of processing virtually any laboratory sample in seconds. Even the toughest samples, such as bone, wood and seeds, can be easily processed. A powerful 850 W motor provides maximum versatility for homogenising, dispersing and emulsifying a wide variety of samples at speeds up to 25,000 rpm. An integrated digital control system ensures repeatability. The digital timer includes a countdown timer for remote applications, eg, fume hoods or biosafety cabinets, and a soft start ensures a smooth start-up and minimises splashing. A wide range of stainless steel probes are compatible with the product, from 5 to 30 mm in diameter, capable of processing samples from 200 ÂľL up to 5 L. Alternatively, plastic OmniTips can be used to completely eliminate the risk of carryover or cross-contamination between samples. The homogenisers are suitable for molecular biology, forensics, food analysis, pharmaceuticals and industrial applications. Capella Science www.capellascience.com.au
