Microprocessor-controlled PCR workstations
AirClean Systems’ AC600 Series microprocessor-controlled PCR
workstations reduce risk of sample contamination. The workstations are designed as application solutions for the manipulation
and amplification of DNA and RNA. Features include built-in
254-nm ultraviolet lights for irradiation and HEPA filtration for
a clean workarea. Standard on 32-in and 48-in width models, the
UVTect microprocessor controller maintains airflow to provide a
clean Class 100 workarea during PCR preparation.
The Ultra EZpette from
Denville Scientific provides
both accurate and precise liquid
dispensing in a comfortable ergonomic design. The eight different
models cover volume ranges from
0.1µL to 10mL. The ejector has a
unique “clik-to-fix” system to easily adjust the tip ejection. Features
include: dual-volume setting system and volume lock, easy calibration, universal
shaft, durable sealing system effective for 60,000
cycles, fully autoclavable, UV-resistant, large
pipetting pushbutton, color-coded, comfortable
finger hook, contoured handle and soft spring
system to minimize hand fatigue.
Aspiration station for cell-
and tissue-culture labs
VacuuBrand’s BVC Professional
G is a safe, convenient, integrated aspiration station for
cell- and tissue-culture labs
without vacuum supply.
Powerful enough to support two users, it offers
full bleach compatibility,
adjustable suction, a level sensor to prevent
overflows, a 0.2-µm filter to contain aerosols, an
autoclavable collection bottle and a touch-con-trolled aspiration handset.
Economical anaerobic chamber
Specifically designed for use by smaller labs,
Sheldon Manufacturing’s BactronEZ has a 13. 7
cuft workspace and a 300 plate capacity incubator. Bactron systems have airtight construction
of stainless steel and rigid Plexiglas, for unobstructed vision and integrity. The patented cuffs
form a comfortable seal around the operator’s
arms permitting bare-hand manipulation of
plates and specimens inside the working chamber. Chamber atmosphere circulates through a
condensate controller then through a catalyst,
which removes any trace amounts of oxygen.
Entry deadline is January 31, 2014.
All laboratories completed and occupied between August 1, 2012, and
December 31, 2013 are eligible. Completed entries are due by January 31, 2014
(11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time).

Honoring Design Excellence for New and Renovated Laboratories
Call for Entries
The editors of R&D Magazine and Laboratory Design
are now accepting entries for the international
Laboratory of the Year Awards. This annual
competition recognizes the best new and renovated
laboratories that combine all aspects of the building
into a superior working environment.
The Laboratory of the Year showcases new and
emerging thinking, sustainable practices, and creative
responses to challenges in the design, construction
and operation of modern laboratories.
Judges for the 2014 competition will select the Renovated Laboratory of the
Year Award, Adaptive Re-use Award, Fit-Out Award, as well as recognizing
other deserving redesign/renovation facilities, along with the traditional
Laboratory of the Year Award for new construction. All entries, including
renovation projects, will be considered equally for the Laboratory of the
the Year Awards
