what’s new

Flash point instrument PAC has announced the release of its nextgeneration flash point instrument, the Herzog OptiFlash Pensky-Martens. The product is simple to use, easy to clean and safe to operate. It detects flash points up to 400°C and complies to global standards such as ASTM D93, ISO 2719, EN ISO 2719, IP 34, JIS K2265 and GB/T 261. With the product’s intuitive user interface and built-in automation, users can easily start a test without having to spend time doing manual tasks like installing the flash point and temperature sensors, as well as installing the test cup for each test. Its innovative design also makes it easy to clean, allowing the user to not only disassemble the cup cover without any tools but also to clean

Liquid nitrogen isn’t the most friendly place for lab labels. That’s why Brady FreezerBondz™ labels are tested and re-tested in the harshest lab conditions. Whether facing liquid nitrogen, freezers or even the heat of autoclaves, FreezerBondz are designed to adhere to frozen tubes and vials down to -196ºC and work across frosted, frozen or room temperature surfaces. |
