PALL

For convenient and secure sterile connection of flexible tubing in large volume operations.

Pall Life Sciences

Kleenpak II sterile connectors allow for the dry connection of two separate fluid pathways, while maintaining the sterile integrity of both, even in an uncontrolled environment. The connector consists of a male and a female connector, each covered by an aluminum peel-away strip that protects the port and maintains the sterility of the sterile fluid pathway prior to connection.

The Kleenpak II sterile connector has been designed to allow for the connection of large processing equipment in order to obtain fast, safe and reliable sterile transfer of large volumes.With this sterile connector, large single-use systems ( > 100 L), such as the AllegroTM systems, will be operated at much faster speeds. There will be minimal fluid restriction in thetubing lines.

Different connector options are available to allow for the connection of 19 mm (3⁄4 in.) and 25.4 mm (1 in.) ID nominal tubing including a 25.4 - 38.1 mm (1 - 11⁄2 in.) sanitary flange compatible fitting for maximum operational flexibility. Kleenpak II sterile connectors can be either gamma irradiated to a maximum of 50 kGy or autoclaved up to 130°C to suit different processing requirements.

Wyatt Technology

The µDAWN™ Multi-Angle static Light Scattering (MALS) detector performs absolute characterization of macromolecules eluting from UHPLC, determining molar mass and size independently of retention time and molecular reference standards.

Wyatt Technology Corporation

The µDAWN™  Multi-Angle static Light Scattering (MALS) detector performs absolute characterization of macromolecules eluting from UHPLC, determining molar mass and size independently of retention time and molecular reference standards. This instrument offers superb sensitivity over a wide range of molar mass, size and concentrations. In most respects the µDAWN is similar to the well-established miniDAWN™ TREOS™, a workhorse MALS instrument used in hundreds of labs around the world for characterizing proteins and other molecules smaller than 50 nm in radius.

Distinctly from the miniDAWN, the µDAWN is uniquely suitable for use in conjunction with UHPLC Size Exclusion Chromatography (µSEC-MALS) thanks to its small interdetector dispersion. In some cases it may be used with ion-exchange or other types of chromatography. Regardless of the specifics, the µDAWN produces minimal band broadening in order to maintain the narrow peaks typical of UHPLC.

The µDAWN and its companion Optilab® UT-rEX™ Refractive Index Detector interface to most standard UHPLC systems. As these instruments are based on the advanced technology of the miniDAWN TREOS and Optilab T-rEX, respectively, users may be confident in the underlying capabilities cited in thousands of peer-reviewed publications

The µDAWN may also be used in microbatch (off-line) mode or in conjunction with a Calypso II CG-MALS system for characterization of macromolecular interactions: affinity and absolute stoichiometry, label-free and immobilization-free, as well as second virial coefficients, cross virial coefficients, average molar masses and sizes.

For many years the Zinsser minilab has been an important component as a teaching aid in chemistry lessons in schools and universities. Now, with improvements to the product and above all with enhanced documentation, the new minilab presents a huge number of new research opportunities for any user.

Even though in the modern fine chemical industry and in pharmaceutical research and development where the smallest possible sample and reagent volumes are used (from a few mls and µls), for practical teaching, the experimentation often takes place in the front of the whole lesson with the use of larger volumes - up to 100mls - in schools and universities.

Containing an innovative set of glass equipment, the Mini Lab „lab in a suitcase“ is now used in many schools in different countries. There is now a new manual available for Mini Lab which includes more than 40 experiments - from basic operations such as distillation, filtration etc to complex syntheses such as colorants as designed by Prof. Michael Schallies. The instructions for the equipment configuration are easy to understand and are explained by simple drawings. General tips for the implementation of single experiments, material notes as well as danger symbols for the reagents are also included in the test description. The expected experimental results are also described in detail and partly documented with pictures or graphics. In the appendix of the manual there are detailed explanations of the potential dangers and also safety tips.

Current Owners of the Mini Lab can have a new updated manual for a small nominal charge.

Zinsser Analytic GmbH develops and manufactures in Germany and supplies customized automation technology and laboratory accessories for the global market. The company has specialized in the supply of high end technological products and systems for automated analysis in the fine chemical industry and also biological research and development. The company has grown over the years reaching a turnover in the range of  double-digit millions and has about 60 employees to date.
