Brooks CSP8 Heat Sealer Processes Smaller Numbers of Tubes to Reduce Freeze-Thaw Cycles and Sample Degradation

CHELMSFORD, MASSACHUSETTS, USA, February 10, 2015 — Brooks Life Science Systems, the global leader in automated cold-chain sample management for drug discovery and biostorage applications and a division of Brooks Automation, Inc. (Nasdaq: BRKS), has introduced the CSP8 heat sealer for 96-well REMP tubes. The easy-to-use instrument permits the sealing of eight REMP tubes at a time, avoiding the need to seal an entire 96- tube rack.

The CSP8 uses Brooks’ industry-proven technology to produce tightly welded, pierceable seals. The REMP tubes’ small volumes allow for multiple aliquots of individual samples —  avoiding freeze-thaw cycles.

“The CSP8’s ability to economically seal small numbers of tubes, plus its capability to process individual aliquots, eliminates the multiple freeze-thaw cycles that lead to sample degradation,” said Christopher McNary, vice president and chief commercial officer, Brooks Life Science Systems. “Our instrument permits fast vein-to-freezer times in applications with distributed biosample collection and subsequent storage in central biobanks.”

The CSP8’s ability to seal a row of eight tubes also eliminates the cost and waste of sealing all of the tubes in a partially filled plate. In addition, the compact size of the instrument’s polyurethane seals maximizes storage density. The CSP8 heat sealer processes 0.3 ml and 0.9 ml, 96-well REMP tubes.

The CSP8 heat sealer is available for purchase from Brooks’s sales representatives. For more information, visit http://www.brooks.com/products/life-science-systems, e-mail blss.sales@brooks.com,  call 1-858-527-7000 or follow us on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.

New Whitepaper Helps with Selection of ICP-OES Spectrometer’s Plasma Interface: Axial-View, Radial-View, Dual-View or New Multiview

New Whitepaper Helps with Selection of ICP-OES Spectrometer’s Plasma Interface: Axial-View, Radial-View, Dual-View or New Multiview

New Whitepaper Helps with Selection of ICP-OES Spectrometer’s Plasma Interface: Axial-View, Radial-View, Dual-View or New Multiview

Kleve, February 4, 2015— A new whitepaper helps purchasers of new ICP-OESspectrometers through the critical — and complex — process of selecting the best appropriate plasma viewing interface for their intended applications. The paper is available to download from SPECTRO Analytical Instruments at http://goo.gl/VuH6qA.

The new whitepaper, “Selecting Your ICP-OES Analyzer’s Plasma Interface: Axial-View, Radial-View, Dual-View or New MultiView,” recommends that when considering a new ICP-OES analyzer purchase, users should focus their selection of the plasma interface based on the range of their applications and the elements they expect to analyze. Doing so, and understanding the benefits and drawbacks of each available viewing technology — axial-view, radial-view, dual-view, or MultiView — will help determine which is the best fit for their analytical tasks. In the whitepaper, each of the differing plasma viewing technologies are defined, their strengths and weaknesses are highlighted, and examples of typical applications are provided.

The paper also discusses a recent development in plasma viewing techniques — the sequential MultiView technology  — that transcends the various disadvantages of the “dual-view” approach by eliminating the use of added mirrors or periscopes. Instead, the MultiView solution enables the user to simply shift the direction of the plasma torch into a new axial or radial orientation with a relatively simple changeover that takes about 90 seconds. As a result, MultiView offers full axial sensitivity and full radial precision without any dual-view compromises — for the functional equivalent of two dedicated, fully optimized analyzers in one. The new technology is currently available in one version of the new SPECTRO ARCOS analyzer — making the spectrometer the only ICP-OES instrument that offers both axial and radial plasma views, but without bias or compromise.
