Premium

Waters this week introduced its new Acquity UPLC M-Class system, a nano- to microscale UPLC system rated for 15,000 psi operation.

The system offers improved sensitivity for analysis for low abundance targets and is suited to applications including proteomics and metabolomics, the company said.


Protea Bioscience has launched its GPR-850 Gel Protein Recovery System for recovery of proteins from polyacrylamide gels.

According to the company, the system can simultaneously extract proteins from eight different gel spots in less than 20 minutes.


Denovix has launched its DS-11 Microvolume Spectrophotometer, which features an Android operating system, touch screen, and Wi-Fi, eliminating the need to interface the device with a computer. The instrument can quantify 0.5 – 1.5 ul samples of nucleic acids and proteins.
