conference, Events


From the viewpoint of a visitor, Samantha Morgan, Analytical Reporter. Labotec decided that the month of October needed to be celebrated. They organised an event – aptly named Labotec EXPOsed – a four-day extravaganza of seminars, discussions, displays, and networking in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. But it was no ordinary roadshow: it was Labotec’s […]


Buchi Launches First Lab Freeze Dryer For Continuous Sublimation – Never Switch Off

BÜCHI Labortechnik AG is introducing the modular LyovaporTM platform for freeze drying. With Infinite-TechnologyTM, the LyovaporTM L-300 offers continuous sublimation for the first time. This means infinite freeze drying that never needs to be switched off (one condenser thaws and the other freezes simultaneously). Infinite-ControlTM allows entire process control of all relevant parameters, also via […]

Explosive & Chemical Resistant Vacuum Pumps for Labs – New pump head material for selected KNF LABOPORT® FT pumps

KNF has optimised some of their pump heads, the inner and wetted area to transfer explosive atmospheres. LABOPORT® FT pumps equipped in this way are suitable for transferring gases, vapours or mists that create conditions in which the occasional formation of an explosive atmosphere is likely.   These ATEX-compliant vacuum pumps apply to ATEX II […]


Long Term Biological Storage with no LN2 as Cooling Medium

Thermo Scientific has a range of ultra-low temperature Cryogenic Chest Freezers for ultra-reliable sample protection designed for long-term biological storage at uniform temperatures of -140ºC and -150ºC without LN2 as a cooling medium.  This obviously eliminates the need for maintaining a supply of LN2. As a result of the absence of LN2, 100% of the […]


Purified Water for Mammalian & Bacterial Cell Culture

  Water for bacterial cell culture should be at least Type II quality, while the more sensitive mammalian cell culture requires Type I ultrapure water with high resistivity (> 18 MΩ.cm) and free from bacteria, endotoxins and other contaminants to avoid adversely affecting the culture. This is the conclusion to an application paper from ELGA […]
