The SureScan Microarray Scanner is a laser induced fluorescence scanner designed to read microarrays printed on a standard 1 inch x 3 inch glass slides. It measures the fluorescence intensity of two dyes simultaneously from labeled sample nucleic acid bound to microarrays.
INTEGRA has designed a dedicated media sterilizer which eliminates these disadvantages. MEDIACLAVE allows for a much shorter process in which medium formulation and sterilization is carried out in one single step. The temperature of the agar medium is precisely monitored and controlled during the entire process. Permanent stirring guarantees homogenous temperature throughout the whole batch and an efficient plate heat exchanger facilitates rapid cooling. All these features prevent the medium from excessive heat exposure and thereby maintains its fertility.
The MEDIACLAVE product range allows the rapid and gentle preparation of 1 – 30 L culture medium. Precise controlling and monitoring of temperature, time and pressure during the sterilization process guarantee constant high quality.
MEDIACLAVE is equipped with several independent monitoring systems for pressure and temperature, guaranteeing highest safety standards for the user and the working environment. The vessel lid is equipped with an autonomous overpressure safety valve and a burst disc in case all other electronic monitoring systems fail.
Overpressure Safety Valve
Temperature Probe Pt1000
FAST HEATING AND RAPID COOLING
Powerful heating elements permit fast media processing. This minimises thermal stress and ensures high fertility of your culture medium. Pressure and temperature controlled deaeration guarantees saturated steam in the vessel.
Rapid cooling is enabled by an efficient plate heat exchanger. The separation of the cooling water system and the sterilization chamber makes it unlikely that culture media gets contaminated by cooling water.
Standard mode: Heating up, sterilization and cooling down to dispensing temperature.
Chocolate agar mode: After the first sterilization phase, blood is added and the medium heated up again.
The large and strong magnetic stirrer with adjustable speed and reversing rotation direction ensures homogenous media preparation over a wide viscosity range. A Pt-1000 temperature probe and microprocessor control of process parameters allow reproducible and complete sterilization of culture media.
MEDIACLAVE can be quickly and conveniently connected to the dispensing tubing of the automated Petri dish filler MEDIAJET. Alternatively, the peristaltic pump DOSE IT can be used to fill containers of more unusual volumes or shapes, e.g. quadrangular Petri dishes, bottles or flasks.
Large containers such as bottles can be filled by pressure dispensing. Medium is dispensed by automatically building up pressure inside the sterilization chamber.
PROCESS DOCUMENTATION AND VALIDATION
The MEDIACLAVE sterilization process is monitored and can be stored on a PC. A digital signature according to FDA (21 CFR Part 11) / EU (GMP Annex 11) is automatically added to the electronic process file. All logfiles can also be stored using the MEDIACLAVE USB port.
If equipped with an optionally available dot matrix printer, high quality printouts insusceptible to fading can be archived.

For running handcast gels, select a casting module from the ordering information. For ordering convenience, order one of the preset configurations based on the required gel thickness.
The Mini-PROTEAN 3 Dodeca cell runs up to 12 mini gels under identical conditions in just 35 minutes. Eliminate gel-to-gel variation by hand casting gels 12 at a time using the Mini-PROTEAN 3 Multi-Casting Chamber and Model 485 Gradient Former. Alternatively, use Mini-PROTEAN or Ready Gel® Precast Gels for added convenience and reproducibility.
Features of the Mini-PROTEAN 3 Dodeca cell include:
· Capacity to run up to 12 gels simultaneously
· Built-in cooling coil that attaches to an external refrigerated circulator to prevent overheating and ensure high resolution results
· Stirbar capability that helps maintain uniform buffer tank temperature for run reproducibility
· Easy assembly facilitated by a patented* electrophoresis clamping frame
· Convenient buffer draining via the built-in quick-connect drain port
· Compact footprint that saves bench space
The Gene Pulser Xcell™ system is a modular electroporation system for transfecting every cell type. The system includes a main unit, a ShockPod™ cuvette chamber, and your choice of accessory modules: the capacitance extender (CE module) and the pulse controller (PC module)
· Universal electroporation — transfects all cell types, from primary and stem cells to bacteria and yeast
· Preset protocols — include the most common mammalian and bacterial cell types
· Flexibility — choice of programs for preset protocols, optimization protocols, manual operation, and/or user protocols
· Protocol library — collection of electroporation protocols for every cell type including primary, immortal, and bacterial cells
· Data management — enables storage and recall of parameters used in the previous 100 experiments, useful for troubleshooting
· Reproducibility — uses PulseTrac™ circuitry and arc-protection features to ensure reproducibility and sample protection
The Helios gene gun is a convenient handheld device that provides rapid and direct transfection into a range of targets in vivo. The unit uses an adjustable low-pressure helium pulse to sweep DNA-, RNA-, or biomaterial-coated gold microcarriers from the inner wall of a small plastic cartridge directly into target cells.
· Provides easy-to-use, rapid, versatile gene delivery independent of target cell type
· Facilitates both transient and stable expression
· Requires only small amounts of DNA and cells; no carrier DNA needed
· Enables codelivery of more than one plasmid
· Allows transfer of large DNA fragments
· Targets intracellular gene delivery to many cells
· Works for both in vitro and in vivo transformation
· Delivers no extraneous genes or proteins
