Industry News: Liquid handling products to be showcased at Neuroscience 2008...

03 Oct 2008

Strategic US partners - Integra Biosciences AG and the Viaflo Corporation have selected Neuroscience 2008 to show for the first time their comprehensive combined portfolio of high quality liquid handling products.

Visitors to Booth 326 will be introduced to a new range of handheld electronic pipettors. VOYAGERis a novel single-handed, adjustable-spacing, multi-channel pipettor that supports sample transfers between different labware formats. VISION® is the industry's first handheld electronic pipettor range that can be controlled with an intuitive touch wheel user interface over four-colour display.

At this important meeting, VIAFLO / INTEGRA Biosciences will also be showing and demonstrating further liquid handling products including the lightweight PIPETBOY serological pipettor and the DOSE IT peristaltic pump. The DOSE IT peristaltic pump makes the dispensing of culture media, buffers and other solutions easy and efficient. An intuitive multilingual user interface, coupled with large ergonomically designed display and keypad, makes the DOSE IT extremely simple to program and operate. Providing high accuracy dispensing across a broad range of dose volumes (0.1 ml - 10L) and flow rates (0.6 ml/min - 5L/ min) the versatility of the DOSE IT reduces the need for a laboratory to have several single-purpose pumps.

For laboratories looking for safe, easy and rapid aspiration of biohazardous liquids technical staff will be on hand to demonstrate the popular VACUSAFE comfort system. Incorporating pump unit, waste collection bottle, tubing and VACUBOY hand operator in an all-in-one compact instrument, the VACUSAFE comfort is a highly safe aspiration system that readily fits below all commercially available laminar flow cabinets.

Other products on display of interest to neuroscience researchers will include the new generation FIREBOY - an intrinsically safe and mobile alternative to the traditional Bunsen burner.
