The Nanoliter injector is a micro-processor controlled injection system that uses direct piston displacement. The collet assembly (exploded view) is shown in the image below. The glass pipette fits into the white, plastic sleeve (spacer). When the collet is screwed in place securely, the black rubber washers are compressed and hold the glass firmly in place.

DNA/RNA Quantification Using DIPUV-Mini and a Tidas Spectrometer

Posted: Wednesday, May 1, 2013

Concentrations of DNA in solution (31µg/mL and 688µg/mL) were measured with a spectrometer and UV/VIS light source in a DIPUV-Mini. Due to the 2mm pathlength, use of a DIPUV-Mini does not require a pre-measurement dilution within this concentration range, thus a potential source of error was eliminated.


DNA/RNA Quantification Using a 2mm Cuvette and a Tidas Spectrometer

Posted: Wednesday, May 1, 2013

Concentrations of DNA in solution (31µg/mL and 561µg/mL) were measured with a spectrometer and UV/Vis light source in a cuvette. A 2mm pathlength cuvette does not require a pre-measurement dilution within this concentration range, thus a potential source of error was eliminated. Although a 2mm cuvette has a total internal volume of 0.7mL, only 350µL is required to obtain an accurate measurement.


Using LEDspec for Nutrient Analysis

Posted: Wednesday, May 1, 2013

WPI's LEDspec is an LED-based, multi-wavelength detector with integrated reference channel. LEDspec is suitable for a variety of applications from nutrient analysis to water purity and trace metal detection.


LabScribe Software for LabTrax

Posted: Wednesday, May 1, 2013

LabScribe is the powerful software included with Lab-Trax™ (formerly called DataTrax). The acquisition and data display in Data-Trax is easy and straight forward. It supports real units and a time-based display that is not coupled to sample rate. You can display up to 1,000,000 data points per channel on the screen. Scrolling, zoom-in and zoom-out tools, together with a searchable list of user interventions, make finding important areas of data easy. And, of course, you can print or export anything that you see.
