Proven Bibby Scientific Range Delivers Instrumentation and Support for Reliable Food Testing
News Mar 15, 2013
Techne Prime thermal cyclers, Stuart homogenisers and microcentrifuges, and Jenway pH probes and meters are all popular choices in the food testing environment.
Techne’s Prime Thermal cycler range provides a system for rapid, effective PCR for laboratories of all sizes. All cyclers are supported by a market-leading four year warranty. With models ranging from 24-well capacity personal instruments to high-throughput 1536-well capacity networks, this versatile range can be used across many applications, including meat species testing in food products.
Stuart brand homogenisers, available both as hand-held and stand-mounted instruments, are used to efficiently prepare material for testing. The Stuart range also includes the Microcentrifuge SCF2, a compact, variable speed centrifuge operating up to 35,500 rpm and BioCote® antimicrobial protection for hygienic and safe working.
For reliable pH measurement, the Jenway range of high performance pH electrodes delivers excellent reproducibility, fast response times and minimal long-term drift, to meet the demands of high-throughput testing laboratories. Also included within the Jenway range is are pH meters that allow the simple, rapid measurement of pH, temperature and mV in samples.

This Seed Could Bring Clean Water to MillionsNews
Biomedical Engineering and Chemical Engineering Professors Bob Tilton and Todd Przybycien recently co-authored a paper with Ph.D. students Brittany Nordmark and Toni Bechtel, and alumnus John Riley, further refining a process that could soon help provide clean water to many in water-scarce regions. The process, created by Tilton’s former student and co-author Stephanie Velegol, uses sand and plant materials readily available in many developing nations to create a cheap and effective water filtration medium, termed “f-sand.”READ MORE
Magnetic Treatment Helps Remove ‘Off-Flavor’ from WinesNews
From vine to wine, grapes undergo a remarkable transformation. But sometimes this makeover results in vino that doesn’t taste quite right. In a new study scientists report that they have found a way to use tiny magnetic particles to remove off-tasting substances in cabernet sauvignon without altering its desired bouquet.READ MORE
