Introduction of an Anti Droplet Control Pipette
News Dec 11, 2006
With the Anti Droplet Control HAMILTON introduces an innovation for pipetting volatile organic solvents, demonstrating the technological advances of the STAR’s Monitored Air Displacement.
This technique is designed to allow process safety as the pressure sensors in the pipetting channel monitor each pipetting step, giving users the opportunity to react to problems like empty samples or clots immediately.
With ADC HAMILTON takes this technology one step further. Pipetting of volatile organic solvents is a challenge because the evaporation of these solvents causes a pressure increase that leads to immediate leakage from the pipette.
The pressure sensors in the STAR’s pipetting channels can detect this pressure increase and ADC can compensate for them in real time.
ADC illustrates monitored air displacement and opens up new application fields in combinatorial chemistry and biology.
ADC is part of HAMILTON’s new Vector Software 4.0, the standard operating software of the STAR liquid handling systems.
Arrow Poison Potential Male Birth ControlNews
Women have many options for oral contraceptives that are safe, effective and reversible, but despite decades of research, men have none. Now, scientists report a rat study that shows they finally have a good lead for a male birth control pill. It's based on ouabain, a plant extract that African warriors and hunters traditionally used as a heart-stopping poison on their arrows.READ MORE
