Scientific Lab Supplies launches the INTEGRA VIAFLO 96 well electronic pipettor

Exclusively available through SLS, the INTEGRA VIAFLO 96 introduces a totally new concept in 96 channel pipetting which is affordable and simple to use.

Providing a full range of pipetting modes including repeat dispense, sample dilute, serial dilution and the ability to programme with customized step-based programmes, it renders 96 and 384 well parallel pipetting as easy as manual single channel pipetting. VIAFLO 96 can also be used for fast sample transfers from plate to plate or reservoir to plate and enables all types of plate reformatting, such as 96 well plates to 384 well plates. VIAFLO 96 is guided by hand with variable servo motor assistance, which allows tireless and precise working. It uses the same award-winning user interface as other VIAFLO electronic pipettes: An informative colour display and a touch wheel which allows easy access to the intuitive menu system - no special skills or training are required to work with this small bench top unit…

New ASTM micro-scale chamber standard will speed up chemical emission screening for manufacturers of materials and products used indoors

An important new ASTM standard has been published: D7706-11: Standard practice for rapid screening of VOC emissions from products using micro-scale chambers.

D7706 will benefit both manufacturing industry (e.g. QC and R&D labs) and accredited third-party test laboratories by providing a fast and low-cost approach to screening chemical emissions from materials. D7706 complements existing longer-term reference test methods and is applicable to a wide range of materials including; construction products, dried or cured paints/coatings/adhesives, compressible products (textiles, foams, etc) and small components such as polymer beads. It will allow manufacturers to control the level of chemical emissions from their products (i.e. to assess ongoing conformity to regulations), to evaluate R&D prototypes and to monitor the quality of raw materials…

Reducing the risk of repetitive strain injury (RSI) caused by manual pipetting

Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is a potentially serious form of strain in small muscle groups, caused by carrying out a highly repetitive task for extended periods without a break. Symptoms usually emerge gradually over several months or even years; in serious cases RSI may cause long-term injury to nerves, muscles, tendons or joints.

Because of the repetitive nature of manual liquid handling and its everyday use in biomedical laboratories, pipetting is considered a potential cause of RSI, with associated pain in the finger, thumb, forearm, elbow, shoulder, neck or lower back…
