LightField data acquisition software

User Rating: / 2
PoorBest 
This 64-bit data acquisition software for spectroscopy and scientific imaging from Princeton Instruments provides comprehensive control of PI cameras and spectrometers, automatically saves data to disc during acquisition, applies time stamp, retains both raw and corrected data with full experimental details,and  is compatible with 64-bit Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
 

Surface analysis for the Dart interface

User Rating: / 1
PoorBest 
IonSense have introduced the 3+D Scanner for rapid chemical analysis of surfaces. The 3+D Scanner is interfaced to the Dart-SVP open-air ionisation source. The device enables rapid mass spectrometry analysis of chemicals on surfaces such as food, packaging materials, fabrics, consumer products, electrical components and wafers. Automated surface analysis can be accomplished without placing the sample under high vacuum as in traditional surface analysis. The Apple iPod-based controller directs the analysis of the entire surface for uniformity or allows you to choose specific locations, thus enabling rapid characterisation of contaminants with no sample preparation.
   

Transfer pipettes for Chemplex XRF sample cups

User Rating: / 1
PoorBest 
Chemplex is introducing a new line of unbreakable chemically resistant polyethylene transfer pipettes with integrated bulbs for filling XRF sample cups ensuring equal volumes of sample substances for X-ray analysis. This reduces the potential effects on x-ray data that translates to variations in concentration levels.Typical uses include: diesel and gasoline fuels, fluid lubricants, paint, chemicals, waste oils and many more sample materials requiring an inexpensive method of transferring samples into sample cups safely, without spillage, no contamination issues and economically priced for disposability.
   

U-series nebulisers for ICP

User Rating: / 2
PoorBest 
The U-Series is a new style of glass concentric nebuliser from Glass Expansion. It provides improved performance and is very simple to use. The main benefits are that the sample channel is uniform from the entry point to the tip, which helps
avoid blockages; since there is nowhere for sample to be trapped, washout time is reduced and sample throughput increased; the VitriCone construction incorporates a precision-machined heavy glass capillary which resists vibration and delivers precision; Glass Expansion’s proprietary UniFit sample connector provides a simple connection with no dead volume. The U-Series is compatible with all ICP-OES and ICP-MS models.
   

Guardion-7 GC-TMS with rechargeable batteries

User Rating: / 2
PoorBest 
The Guardion-7 from Torion is a portable GC-TMS, and is now available with rechargeable batteries that provide longer field operating times up to six hours. A new high speed capillary gas chromatograph is combined with a new miniaturised toroidal ion trap mass spectrometer (TMS) in a lightweight instrument.
   

C11118GA process NIR miniature spectrometer

User Rating: / 2
PoorBest 
Hamamatsu’s C11118GA is a NIR miniature spectrometer for process measurements. Optimised for CH combinational measurements such as asphaltene, cellulose and carbonates, the C11118GA simultaneously measures from 900 nm to 2550 nm. Integration times of 6 μs measure all wavelengths simultaneously, preventing data blur from rapidly changing samples. Integration times range from 6 μs to 40,000 μs (typical). The C11118GA’s doubled slit area and new diffraction grating maximise signal. The input slit is 140 μm by 250 μm (0.22 NA). A proprietary master transmission grating provides higher performance from 2000 nm to 2550 nm.
   

MB3600-PH FT-NIR spectrometer

User Rating: / 1
PoorBest 
The MB3600-PH FT-NIR spectrometer is intended for the pharmaceutical and life sciences industries. It can be used in a broad range of applications, and can be operated without any scheduled maintenance for ten years. It is a benchtop analyser that can be fitted with a variety of accessories for measurements on a broad range of applications, such as: laboratory QA/QC analysis, raw material identification and qualification, research and development, NIR method development, and at-line PAT measurements.
   

Pyro XL microwave ashing furnace

User Rating: / 1
PoorBest 
Milestone has expanded its line of microwave ashing furnaces with the introduction of the Pyro XL, designed to accommodate large volume, high fuming applications making it an ideal fit for applications such as food and feed, oils and polymers. It meets the requirements of many methods including ASTM, USP, SEMI, and ISO. The Pyro XL can be pre-programmed to follow specific methods and regulates energy throughout.
   

Vacuum pump enclosures

User Rating: / 1
PoorBest 
Laboratories are often annoyingly noisy due to vacuum pump. Vacuum pumps (rotary, scroll) are typically required to maintain a vacuum on many lab devices. This noise makes working conditions around equipments uncomfortable and tiring for anyone who works in the lab. Vacuum pump enclosures from MS Noise can reduce this noise by half, by up to 12 decibels. The company offers a wide range of enclosures that fit virtually all vacuum pumps.
   

TruFlite MCP line optimised for TOF

User Rating: / 1
PoorBest 
Photonis has introduced a new Microchannel plate product group, optimised for time-of-flight mass spectrometry measurements. The TruFlite products are designed to reduce two of the most common issues with instrument
performance in ToF mass spectrometry: ion arrival time and time jitter. The TruFlite line optimises surface flatness of the MCP and channel size and bias angle to improve the resolution. The TruFlite line will be offered in both 18 mm and 25 mm active areas, and custom detector assemblies.
   

Spec Plus CCD spectrophotometer

User Rating: / 1
PoorBest 
Forston Labs have introduced an affordable UV/vis CCD spectrophotometer/fluorometer array instrument combination that allows analysts to collect a full wavelength spectrum absorbance, percent transmittance or intensity in less than one second. Once the peak wavelength has been determined, the analyst can then easily determine the concentration of a solution or monitor rates of reaction.
   

Spectrophotometer for colour measurement

User Rating: / 1
PoorBest 
The Lovibond PFXi spectrophotometer offers the capability for remote calibration and servicing via the internet—eliminating any costs and time delays associated with servicing. The PFXi spectrocolorimeters are simple to use with no need to build up calibration curves as they are already established in the instruments. The large, clear LCD screen allows the display of graphs and data in a wide variety of languages and the easy to use menu system guides operators through the selection of operating parameters.
   

Analyze IQ chemometrics software

User Rating: / 1
PoorBest 
Analyze IQ Ltd has released Version 1.2 of the Analyze IQ chemometrics software suite, which works with Windows 7 (32- and 64-bit) and earlier versions of Windows. A number of new file formats are supported, including JCAMP-DX, SpectroML and AIQ. New features include a model driven paradigm that separates model-building from model usage, so that you can package and deploy chemometric knowledge and analysis and storage of mixtures data.
   

How to get yourself noticed (by the press): advice for exhibitors

User Rating: / 2
PoorBest 
I have been attending Pittcon (and other exhibitions around the world) for … longer than I want to admit to. There are huge differences between the ways that companies promote themselves to the press at these exhibitions, and you probably could be getting yourself noticed more.
