Dear partners!

Group of Companies Apteka-95 is pleased to announce of fresh expansion.

As the market of laboratory equipment unceasingly progresses and differs from one region to another, we can`t stand beside. That`s why the direction of laboratory equipment sales in our GC expands and becomes more specialized. Our aim is to study the consumers needs more deeply in every region for achieving the best sales results.

Since now the Department of Laboratory Equipment of Apteka-95 GC is divided into two independent departments the Department of Laboratory Equipment for Ukraine and CIS-countries and the Department of Laboratory Equipment for Russian Federation.

Let us introduce you the key persons in the new companies structure and actual contact information for further cooperation.

The Head of the Department
of Laboratory Equipment
for Russian Federation
is Illya Smirnov.

Bio-decontamination of a Tissue Culture Laboratory after a Fungal Infection Print E-mail
Thursday, 29 May 2014

A multi-national pharmaceutical facility with a large R&D presence in the UK contacted Bioquell after a persistent fungal infection was affecting tissue culture samples within a laboratory. Experience has shown that performing a bio-decontamination cycle is just once facet of eradicating an endemic problem and as such a Bioquell specialist visited the site prior to the deployment.

Working with both the laboratory management and users a complete decontamination approach was developed. The approach looked at the laboratory as a whole along with its processes. Recommendations made included revised housekeeping procedures, and minor refurbishment works to increase the biosecurity of the area, as well as steps to maximise the efficacy of the bio-decontamination process.

The laboratory ramped down activities in the run up to the deployment, running down stocks of reagents and consumables to minimise occluded surfaces and was then subject to a rigorous surface clean, removing all gross contamination. All equipment was configured in order to optimise the airflow and maximise exposed surface areas. The lab equipment was able to remain in place(including safety cabinets and incubators) thus undergoing the bio-decontamination process.

The RBDS team deployed and the 250m3 laboratory suite was fully treated within 5 hours. Throughout the gassing cycle the safety cabinets were left running, as were circulation fans in the incubators, bio-decontaminating all internal surfaces and filters. The HPV process was verified using biological indicators and the infection has not returned.

Chris Langley, RBDS Lifesciences Specialist said, HPV has excellent, wide spectrum efficacy against mould, viral, bacterial and mycoplasma the typical cell culture contaminants, but will not act alone as a silver bullet. Careful consideration needs to be given to the process flow as a whole to maximise the cycle efficacy and prevent immediate recontamination.

SciAps presented new analyzer LIBZ Print E-mail
Wednesday, 23 April 2014

The Z is based on a well-established technology called laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) or LIBZ as we like to call it. With LIBS, a laser is fired at a sample, heating it almost instantaneously and creating an electron plasma. As the plasma cools after about 1 us, the electrons return to the atoms that constitute the sample, emitting light at various discrete wavelengths. The spectrometer resolves the wavelengths and the processor determines elements present and concentrations.

LIBZ is an optical technique, not x-ray. The measured light is in the UV, visible and NIR spectral region. Therefore many more elements can be analyzed compared to portable XRF. Elements hydrogen (H) to sodium (Na) may be measured by the Z, but cannot be measured by portable XRF. This includes critical elements like C, Li, Be, B, Na and others. The Z measures elements Mg, Si, Al at much lower detection limits, compared to portable XRF due to the optical nature of the technology.

Transportable Mass Spectrometer IonCamTM Print E-mail
Monday, 17 March 2014
OI Analytical is pleased to announce the release of its Transportable Mass Spectrometer the IonCam. Designed for size, robustness, and speed of analysis, the IonCam is suitable for environmental analysis, process measurement, and general MS applications for the field or mobile laboratory. The IonCam detects complete mass spectra in an instant matching the analytical power of a scanning MS but with rapid, parallel m/z detection.

Detection speed and high duty cycle facilitate rapid analyses. Interchangeable GC, direct air-sampler modules, on-board vacuum system, and PC control via integrated touch screen create a flexible, transportable and stand-alone system.
