Beta-RAM and Laura are the ‘Green’ team for Radio-Chromatography
Product News Jan 11, 2011
All these objectives (and more besides) can be achieved with the combination of LabLogic’s new Model 5 Beta-RAM radio-HPLC on-line flow detector and the company’s Laura 4 radio-chromatography software.
Low dead-volume fittings and flow cells, a scintillant cocktail pump accurately delivering low flow rates and the new Active Counting Mode (which adjusts run conditions dynamically for the best results) all contribute to a package that is fully optimised for low flow applications and therefore gives ‘greener’, less-is-better performance.
Taking just the example of solvent and scintillant use, if your usual flow rate is 1ml/min of eluate with 3 ml/min of cocktail and your run is 40 minutes you produce 160 ml of total waste each time. If there are 5 runs per day for 5 days a week, that is 4 litres per week and 200 litres in a 50-week year.
Reduce flow rates by 50% - which the Beta-RAM and Laura can help you with – and you will save 100 litres in a year for each and every workstation. Good for the environment and for your consumables budget too.
