IDEX Catalogue update 2024

Tags: , , , , , , , |

As the Global Premium Distributor for IDEX, Biotech Fluidics can present an updated IDEX catalogue with flow components, separation tools, and fluid management products. The catalogue has been thoroughly updated and corrected, and all obsolete items have been highlighted or removed. Nevertheless, it is still filled with plenty of fittings, connectors, valves, column hardware, and tubing for construction and maintenance of high precision fluidic systems. As always, Biotech Fluidics is ready to assist you and answer questions about what items would be most suitable for your current fluidics project. Learn more

Enhancing SPR instrument performance

Tags: , , , |

Biotech Fluidics AB reports supplying key microfluidic and degassing components to BioNavis Oy (Tampere, Finland) for its range of Multi-Parametric Surface Plasmon Resonance (MP-SPR) instruments. Surface Plasmon Resonance is the ‘go to’ technique for the measurement of molecular interactions in fluidics including serum, saliva, and organic solvents. SPR technology beneficially allows evaluation of affinity and kinetics of molecular binding reactions without the burdens of labelling as the technique is label-free. The BioNavis Navi™ range of advanced MP-SPR instruments provide superior features and performance enabling both studies of surface interactions as well as nanolayer characterization. Navi MP-SPR instruments are helping

Testing plug flow in a reaction delay coil

Tags: , |

The reaction delay coils (also called knitted open tubular 'KOT' reactors) from Biotech Fluidics are designed to maintain plug flow in a variety of liquid flow systems. They accomplish this through a winding flow path design that enhance radial mixing, while minimizing axial dispersion. This makes reaction delay coils ideal flow elements to allow time for reactions, or for automatic decision making during a continuous flow. These features make reaction delay coils popular for example, in plug flow chemistry reaction development or in liquid chromatography reaction detection. To showcase the potential of reaction delay coils, we had an experiment

Plug flow preserved in reaction delay coils

Tags: , |

The reaction delay coils (also KOT tubular coil reactors) from Biotech Fluidics are the ideal delay elements to preserve plug flow while allowing time for reactions or other events in a stream of flowing liquid. Whether employed in the context of flow chemistry synthesis, or in more traditional liquid chromatography setups, the reaction delay coils provide an unmatched capability of preventing zones from mixing with the surrounding upstream and downstream liquid in a flowing stream. This feature can be used to maintain high concentrations of reagents during plug flow chemistry reaction development, with minimum dilution by the transport liquid.

High-precision dispensing facilitated by efficient degassing

Tags: , , , |

Dissolved gasses present a challenge in most liquid handling situations since off-gassing and the resulting formation of bubbles typically leads to inaccurate results. This is especially troublesome in high-precision dispensing equipment, where exact volumes of chilled solutions must be distributed at high speed during long sequences. The presence of temperature gradients and pressure differences in these setups accelerates bubble formation, which immediately impacts volume accuracy to an unacceptable level. Dispensers are therefore often furnished with alarms that stop and divert the flow if bubbles are detected, which instantly has a negative impact on throughput and productivity. The most efficient way

Degassing in an automated RNA imaging instrumentation

Tags: , , , |

The work in the Linnarsson Lab at Karolinska Institute, aims to make high resolution atlases of the mouse and human brain, where we know the location and type of every individual cell in the brain. This is done by imaging the RNA molecules that are present in each cell of the brain with a microscope. The RNA can be seen as an intermediate between the cells' DNA and the proteins. The information of which specific RNA molecules are present in a cell tells us about the function of the cell. There are thousands of different RNA molecules that can
