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.

One in Five Materials Chemistry Papers May be Wrong, Study SuggestsNews
The replicability of results from scientific studies has become a major source of concern in the research community, particularly in the social sciences and biomedical sciences. A new study that compared the results reported in thousands of papers published about the properties of metal organic framework (MOF) materials – which are prominent candidates for carbon dioxide adsorption and other separations – suggests the replicability problem should be a concern for materials researchers, too.READ MORE
Salmonella Cases No Longer Declining in the EUNews
The declining trend of salmonellosis cases in the EU has levelled off according to the annual report on zoonotic diseases. Cases of Salmonella Enteritidis acquired in the EU have increased in humans by 3% since 2014 and in laying hens, the prevalence increased from 0.7% to 1.21% over the same period.
New Rapid Test for Valley Fever Should Help Reduce Diagnosis DelaysNews
November saw a spike if cases of Valley fever. Fortunately, the recent—and timely—approval of a new rapid assay test for Valley fever should reduce delays in diagnosing the respiratory fungal infections—a frequent problem in treating the disease, which is caused by spores endemic to soils in the U.S. Southwest.READ MORE
