Biomedical Researcher wins Microplate Catalogue prize draw

Dr Ian McFarlaneA scientist at the Genomics CoreLab of the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre at Addenbrooke's Hospital (Cambridge, UK) has won Porvair Sciences' latest free prize draw for people registering online for the company's 2010-2011 Microplate Catalogue.

Interest in Porvair Sciences' latest free draw to win a Cannon EOS 1000D DSLR camera was intense, but the lucky winner was Dr Ian McFarlane, a biomedical researcher in the Genomics CoreLab based in the University of Cambridge Metabolic Research Laboratories. Ian is responsible for leading a microarray and genomics service and is a regular contributor to the European chapter of the Laboratory Robotics Information Group.

Presenting the prize  - Porvair Sales Manager, Steve Knight, commented "The Genomics CoreLab are moving to new laboratories with a high degree of automation in sample preparation using new liquid handling robotics together with more efficient microarray techniques with ever-higher levels of automation, consequently their use of robot-compatible plates and reservoirs will increase. Integrating a high-specification microplate reader into their workflow will eventually require detection plates of superior quality too. As a major supplier of quality reservoirs and plates for this application we are pleased that one of the Addenbrookes team has won the sought-after DSLR camera."

Reflecting Porvair's commitment to continuous technological innovation - the 2010/2011 microplate catalogue introduces a suite of exciting new products. An addition to Porvair's specialist microplate range is the new Glass Vial Storage plate - 96 high quality glass vials in a 48mm storage block - ideal for UHPLC applications. Porvair Sciences instrument range boasts two new thermal plate sealers. MicroSeal is a budget priced heat sealer with great performance, whilst the popular MiniSeal gets a makeover to become MiniSeal Plus - quicker, quieter, safer and more economical than before. Add to this new PCR plates, more sterile plate options and a new range of seals and you will see that the 2010/2011 catalogue remains an indispensable reference guide to any laboratory using or interested in using microplates.
