A friendly reminder in case you missed it because of the summer break: Micronic recenlty launched two new tissue tubes with external thread, the 1.00ml in 48-format and the 3.50ml in 24-format. If you would like to have samples but haven’t received them yet, please let us know!
With the new tissue storage tubes, Micronic enables biobanks to standardize and automate the storage of fresh frozen tissue samples in the same way as their liquid samples. No more need for using different types of containers and vials, these uniform and standard tubes can store various sizes of tissue samples. The tubes are optionally available with a transparent cap, for easy visual checking of the enclosed tissue sample from above. The tissue tubes are provided with a 2D Data-Matrix code for complete traceability and available in a 1D barcoded Micronic ULT rack based on the automation-friendly ANSI/SLAS rack format.
The cellZscope, an instrument that measures the impedance of barrierforming cell cultures, specifically, the transepithelial / -endothelial resistance (TER) and the capacitance (Ccl) of cultured cell layers under physiological conditions. This allows fast monitoring to take place over days and weeks with reliable long term measurements being automatically recorded. This makes the cellZscope an ideal tool for controlling the confluence of cell layers as well as for studying the influence of substances on the barrier function. The innovative design has enabled the cellZscope full compatibility with standard cell culture inserts from all major manufacturers, like Corning Transwell and Falcon, Greiner Bio-One ThinCert, and Millipore Millicell inserts.
This year, nanoAnalytics has launched the next generation of impedance-based cell monitoring systems, the cellZscope2. Today, across several hundreds of research laboratories and peer-reviewed publications worldwide, investigators have adopted the cellZscope® as the new technological standard bearer and preferred market leader. As the original innovator of label-free automated monitoring of barrier forming cells grown in standard cell culture inserts, nanoAnalytics has designed the new cellZscope2 with the same precision engineering and highest quality materials as the original cellZscope – with a number of enhanced features added. These include faster performance, higher throughput, greater measurement flexibility, and instrument operations and maintenance that are truly a snap.
