New Products: Sep 10, 2009


Bruker Daltonics last month launched the world's first 18 Tesla magnet for Fourier transform mass spectrometry.

The actively shielded, refrigerated 18T magnet is the world's highest field FTMS magnet and provides "dramatic increases" in FTMS resolution and dynamic range, Bruker said in a statement. "Additionally, the routine observation and measurement of isotopic fine structure of molecules of interest will be facilitated and extended to larger molecules to provide another dimension of specificity for the determination of exact molecular formulae," the company said.

Bruker is currently accepting orders for the 18T FTMS magnet, which will be delivered 12 months after order.

Olink Bioscience this week introduced the Duolink anti-Hapten PLA probes.

The product family contains proximity ligation assay probes to the haptens biotin, fluorescein, and digoxin. With other Olink products, the new Duolink probes allow researchers to detect protein-protein interactions, protein modifications, and proteins in fixed cells and tissue sections, the company said in a statement.

The new product allows frees up researchers from having to use primary antibodies raised in different species in a Duolink assay, Olink added. "Now the protein interactions consisting of two identical partners, homodimers, can be detected and visualized in cells and tissue," it said.

Rigaku Americas this week announced an agreement with TTP LabTech to offer the mosquito nanoliter pipetting system as part of the Rigaku CrystalMation platform for automated protein crystallization.

The mosquito technology will be implemented on a custom basis for pharmaceutical customers studying membrane proteins, and performing RNA and DNA research.

The mosquito has disposable, positive displacement pipettes, which ensure zero cross-contamination, Rigaku said in a statement, and added that the instrument can accurately aspirate and dispense a wide range of liquid types and viscosities.

Phenomenex last month launched the Kinetex ultra-high performance LC columns.

Kinetex is based on Phenomenex's core-shell silica technology and delivers "significant" improvements in speed and separation efficiency over traditional 3- and 5-micron columns, according to the company. Kinetex allows researchers to achieve UHPLC results on any LC instrument and any chromatographic method can be completed at a "fraction of the time previously required."

The Kinetex core-shell columns are initially available in two particle sizes, 2.6- and 1.7 micron. They will are available in three chemistries, C18, PFP, and HILIC.
