  Stuart rotator keeps statutory fertiliser analysis work turning over Kent Scientific Services, a Public Analyst Laboratory, selected a Stuart STR4 rotator to meet the requirements of its fertiliser enforcement analysis work. The prescribed analysis methods for checking the nitrogen and phosphorus content in fertiliser samples require flasks to be mixed end-over-end at 35-40rpm, faster than many other rotators can achieve.

 

  Techne TC-PLUS thermal cycler is ideal for new fast PCR protocols With one of the fastest aluminium blocks on the market, the Techne TC-Plus thermal cycler has been shown to contribute to significant savings in PCR reaction times by using faster ramp rates, modified programs and modified reaction mixes.

 

  DNA measurements using the TrayCell One of the most common applications of a UV/Visible spectrophotometer is to measure the concentration of nucleic acids. Often there is very little sample available and the researcher may not wish to dilute it further in order give sufficient volume for measurement in a standard quartz cuvette. There are ultra-micro quartz cuvettes available which will allow as little as 20μl of sample to be measured directly, however they can be quite difficult to use to achieve reproducible results. An alternative, if the sample is of a sufficient concentration, is to use a TrayCell.

 

  Reducing PCR reaction times by using faster ramp rates, modifying programs and changing the reaction mix In the modern laboratory, speed is often of the essence and any process capable of saving valuable research time is an advantage. One recent advance in this direction is the development of fast PCR protocols which include both specialised PCR reagents and modified thermal cycling steps. The Techne TC-PLUS thermal cycler gives the user all the features required to make best use of these new methodologies by offering flexible programming and rapid block ramp rates of up to 5ºC/s.
