High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is a technique used for analysis of liquid mixtures by separating, identifying, and quantifying their constituent components. Liquid chromatography normally operates with smaller amounts of material and seeks to measure the relative proportions of analytes in a mixture. R&D laboratories in the pharmaceutical, food science and oil industries use these instruments for product development or reverse engineering.
Maintaining a temperature well below ambient, and monitoring this temperature carefully, are critical to extending the shelf life of reagents used for in vitro diagnostics. Most reagents require refrigeration and would spoil within hours at room temperatures. Reagents can degrade and become contaminated by microbial growth, which can affect test integrity results. Reagents can also be negatively impacted if they undergo too many freeze and thaw cycles.
A centrifuge is a laboratory device using centrifugal force to separate liquid mixtures. To separate fluids, the centrifuge spins samples at a fast rate, resulting in heavy components to migrate away from the center axis and lighter components to migrate towards the axis. Centrifuge devices are widely used tools in food processing and medical research for cellular, genetic and protein analysis. When designing laboratory and medical centrifuges, several design challenges must be considered.
Centrifugation is a process that separates mixtures through centrifugal force. Centrifuges are commonly used in food processing and medical research for protein, genetic and cellular analysis. In medical laboratory settings, centrifugation involves spinning medical samples at a fast rate to filter or concentrate substances based on differing densities. Dense components migrate away from the center axis, while less dense components migrate towards the axis.
As the demand increases for self-service systems with 24/7 availability, outdoor kiosks have become widely used in different sectors including banks, airports, train stations, retail and manufacturing. Located outdoors, kiosks are exposed to varying temperatures from less than 10°C to more than 40°C and are also exposed to rain, dust dirt and humidity.
Incubators, used for cell and tissue cultivation in hospital and laboratory settings, grow and maintain cell and tissue samples under controlled conditions for hours, weeks, or even months. They create the ideal environment for cell and tissue sample growth by maintaining optimum levels for temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, and oxygen. Precision control of these factors enables research and experimental work in industries where cell culture is vital, such as zoology, microbiology, pharmaceutical research, food science, and cosmetics.
Incubators used in hospital and laboratories are designed to provide the optimal environment for cell growth. Since proteins are extremely sensitive to environmental deviations, a temperature difference by as little as 6°C from the body temperature of 37°C, have a negative impact on cell health. If too cold, cell growth slows and if too hot, sensitive proteins begin to denature.
