Heading to Philly: Cole-Parmer Packs Up for PITTCON

March 14, 2013

The world’s largest annual conference and exposition on laboratory science is only a few days away. From March 17-21, PITTCONwill populate the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia with scientists, students, exhibitors, and other industry professionals. “It’s like the Auto Show or the Flower Show, but for scientists!” writes CBS Reporter Lauren Lipton.

According to PITTCONPresident Ronald Bargiel, who first attended the conference in 1980 in New York City, “I was overwhelmed by the size of the conference and the excitement of a new city. This year in Philadelphia we are going back to all the excitement and flavor that I experienced in New York.”

The 2013 show features 1,926 exhibitor booths, 100 short courses, 62 poster sessions, and 12 workshops. Cole-Parmer will be ready to meet attendees in booth #2225.

“We’re excited to introduce some of our new products, which will offer enhanced versatility in labs,” said Cole-Parmer Marketing Manager Brian Buzinski. “We’re also taking requests for our new 2013/14 Cole-Parmer® Sourcebook and one lucky visitor will win a Nintendo® Wii U Basic System.”

CP_LSPrecisionModularDrivesBooth visitors can view the new Masterflex® L/S® Precision Modular Drives. These peristaltic pump drives allow users to position the motor and controller separately—ideal for limited spaces, hoods, or isolation chambers. The new non-DEHP formulation of Masterflex® Tygon® E-Lab Pump Tubing, containing no BPA or phthalates, will also be on display. This versatile tubing handles virtually all inorganic chemicals and viscous fluids and offers near-global compliance.

Other new lab instruments to check out:

  • The new Cole-Parmer® Variable-Speed Centrifuge ensures powerful and complete separation of serum specimens in samples.
  • The new LabTouch Water Activity Meter uses the latest noncontact infrared sampling technology and a maintenance-free Aw sensor designed to measure almost any kind of sample.
  • The new PBI Shredder SG3 System enables users to achieve better sample integrity and longer DNA. The device creates a closed system in which to safely prepare samples.
  • The Cole-Parmer® Rotational Viscometer determines the dynamic viscosity of samples in pharmaceuticals, chemicals, biofuels, adhesives, and more. It is available in basic, intermediate, and advanced models.

Stop by and meet Brian and our team of experts from March 18-21.

Maintaining Sample Integrity

July 21, 2011

Ensuring sample integrity is critical in laboratory and pharmaceutical research, microbiology, food technology, forensics, and many other scientific applications. Integrity can be compromised by inadequate sample volume, incorrect handling procedures, contamination, mislabeling, and other influences.

Because sample protection is so important, Thermo Scientific developed a new line of Heratherm Incubators and Gravity Convection Ovens with this as their top priority.

Thermo Scientific Heratherm General Protocol Incubators are ideal for standard applications in pharmaceutical, research, and food labs. They are designed to deliver top-quality temperature uniformity ranging from 5°C ambient to 75°C. Their unique airflow design, advanced microprocessor control, and automatic overtemperature alarm keep the internal environment optimal. An interior glass door enables sample viewing without disturbing the desired temperature. An intuitive user interface makes setting parameters easy. Choose from 2 to 6.3 cubic feet units.

Thermo Scientific Heratherm General Protocol Gravity Convection Ovens are designed for gentle heating and drying with minimal air turbulence. These ovens are a highly effective choice for precise heating applications. Their advanced microprocessor controls deliver detailed information on current temperature and set points. Set the temperature from 50 to 330°C and store the setting in memory while the oven is off. Visual overtemperature alarm and built-in safety backup maintain temperature control at 5°C above the set point if the primary control fails. A circuit breaker protects the oven from power surges. Thick insulation in walls and door maintains a safe exterior temperature and a silicone door gasket prevents heat loss. Low energy consumption contributes to their efficiency. Premium units also offer adjustable fan speed for application-related drying and a programmable controller for temperature ramps and dwells. Select from 2 to 6.4 cubic feet options.
