The FL series offers a new generation of chillers for routine cooling applications within the laboratory and industry. The working temperature range covers –20°C to +40°C, the temperature stability of the PID control is ±0.5°C. All units can easily be cleaned and are provided with a splash water proof keypad with LED temperature indication. On the front of the units there is an RS232 interface as well as an alarm shutdown. The filling port is easily accessible placed on the top under a lift-up cover. Another hinged tray serves as a file for the operating manual or other documents concerning the installation. The removible venting grid allows an easy cleaning of the condenser, the drain tap is easily acceable behind the grid. All models include an easily visible level indication. Another advantage is the venting slots are on the front and rear and therefore the units can be placed directly one beside the other (space saving).
Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.Spotlight on Acoustic Liquid Handling Journal of Laboratory Automation special issue highlights how acoustic liquid handling enables breakthrough innovations.Microbes Take Their Vitamins Scientists exploit organisms' needs in order to track 'vitamin mimics' in bacteria.Keeping a Specimen's Story Straight Imagine 96 people standing shoulder to shoulder, not touching and attempting to breathe only the air un-exhaled by the others. Sound impossible?Portable Kit Can Recover Traces of Chemical Evidence A chemist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed a portable version of his method for recovering trace chemicals such as environmental pollutants and forensic evidence including secret graves and arson fire debris.Diagnosis of Two Rare Childhood Diseases Improved For the first time, researchers have developed tests that could improve the diagnosis of two rare childhood diseases known as congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDGs) and metachromatic leukodystrophy, and that could even lead to new treatments for CDGs. Cleaning Out the Membrane Each Day Cell membranes are made up of a lipid bilayer that is constantly changing due to the flux of material in and out of the cell. New Test for Cancer and Diabetes Biomarkers University of Warwick researchers developed the test to help identify molecules in collagen.Cooperating Bacteria Isolate Cheaters Bacteria, which reciprocally exchange amino acids, stabilize their partnership on two-dimensional surfaces and limit the access of non-cooperating bacteria to the exchanged nutrients.Novel Approach to Understanding Brain Function Russell Poldrack scanned his brain to create the most detailed map of brain connectivity ever.
