A guide to a positive displacement pipette

When it comes to laboratory equipment one piece of equipment which is an essential addition to many places is the positive displacement pipette. This versatile accessory plays a major part in our lives - although you most people probably do not realise it. A positive displacement pipette is an important component in medical research so its importance cannot be underrated. Here is an introduction to this seminal piece of equipment:Items like the positive displacement pipette are commonly used in the fields of molecular biology, analytical chemistry and biochemistry. They are very used for research and production in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. The positive displacement pipette is something which comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. It is just one of a range of different types of pipettes which are suitable for different applications. These have differing levels of accuracy and precision.Along with the likes of the motorized pipette the positive displacement pipette is frequently used by compan...

 


What Does A Laboratory Information System Do?

A laboratory information system is used to provide a full featured framework for the management of processes, workflow and tracking samples and other materials in the laboratory and/or other environments. Laboratory information systems are used to provide functions which include tracking and inventory of instruments, samples and consumables, handling reporting and invoicing and a variety of other routine elements of workflow in the laboratory or production process. Information management systems are often used in large scale production environments, where the capabilities of these systems provide a way to facilitate efficient and accountable production processes. While they are something more strongly associated with the laboratory, a laboratory information system is generally more than flexible enough to be adapted to a variety of different applications where large volumes of material or data need to be managed in a way which is more efficient than older methods such as paper record keeping systems.Companie...

 


New Nanotechnology Technique Extends Fillings' Longevity

Nanotechnology (sometimes shortened to "nanotech") is the study of manipulating matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Generally, nanotechnology deals with developing materials, devices, or other structures with at least one dimension sized from 1 to 100 nanometres. Quantum mechanical effects are important at this quantum-realm scale. Nanotechnology is considered a key technology for the future. Consequently, various governments have invested billions of dollars in its future. The USA has invested 3.7 billion dollars through its National Nanotechnology Initiative followed by Japan with 750 million and the European Union 1.2 billion.Nanotechnology is very diverse, ranging from extensions of conventional device physics to completely new approaches based upon molecular self-assembly, from developing new materials with dimensions on the nanoscale to direct control of matter on the atomic scale. Nanotechnology entails the application of fields of science as diverse as surface science, organic chemistry, molecula...

 


The Future of Semiconductor Fabrication and Manufacturing Market

If there is one thing that's consistent in technology and manufacturing, it's the fact that change is constantly in motion. In fact, things change so quickly at times that it is difficult to keep up with advancements of nearly any specific industry. This is especially the case when it comes to items such as semiconductors and the changes in their fabrication and manufacturing methods.What is the future of semiconductor fabrication and the manufacturing market?Semi conductors have really changed the way that we live our lives in numerous ways. They are found in almost every electronic and electrical device that we use throughout the day and the technology that's available is constantly changing. Of course, the basic fabrication of semiconductor silicon is similar from its inception, but there are always going to be various manufacturing differences that will help to make the finished device smaller and more efficient, and the overall manufacturing process more profitable.At one time, the level of purity that w...

 


How Has Biotechnology Equipment Helped Improve the Food Supply?

Scientists today, who keep an eye on our health and welfare in the world, express concern over the possibility that we will run out of food in the future. This may happen for a number of different reasons, such as a widespread drought, localized flooding, or global climate change. However, using biotechnology can make it possible t improve our food to sustain us for an even greater amount of time, and to do so more cheaply. How has biotechnology equipment help to improve the current food supply?One of the ways that biotechnology affects the food supply is through genetic manipulation of plants we use as food. Some of the foods that we eat regularly are modified genetically so that the plants yield more and are able to do so in situations that are more difficult. When you look at the grain that is currently available, you will see that it is much shorter and with a higher yield from grain a few decades ago. This is no accident. Scientists design grain in order to grow more quickly and provide us with more food...

 


What Do Single And Double Beam Spectrophotometers Do?

A single and double beam spectrophotometer is an instrument which is designed to measure light by wavelength distribution. There are a wide variety of different sizes and styles of spectrophotometers both single and dual beam, with their size and configuration largely dependent on the specific applications for which they are designed. A single beam instrument is used to measure the intensity of a beam of light before and then after the addition of a sample and uses a light source, a prism and a photocell as well as a sample holder for the material being analyzed by means of spectrophotometry.Spectrophotometer single beam or double beam models offer the ability to control the wavelength and intensity of the light source. The results provided by these instruments are in the form of voltage fluctuations which are the light energy received by the photo cell into the form of electrical energy, which is then displayed and/or recorded on a connected computer for further analysis.By contrast, spectrophotometers whi...
