The Dionex ion chromatography (IC) systems have led the industry for nearly 40 years, with instruments and solutions that represent state-of-the-art technological advancements and patented technologies, including the newest addition to the IC portfolio, the Thermo Scientific Dionex Integrion HPIC system.
The Q Exactive GC system is the first to combine gas chromatography and high-resolution accurate-mass (HRAM) Orbitrap mass spectrometry for comprehensive characterization in a single analysis. The system is designed to increase performance in compound discovery, identification and quantitation to give GC-MS users a deeper understanding of their samples than ever before.
The Thermo Scientific mySPIN mini centrifuge series is designed to provide simplicity, efficiency and ergonomics in a compact footprint for personal workstations. These mini centrifuges are designed for protocols requiring quick spin downs, allowing users to easily perform fast spins within 20-30 seconds. Ideal for PCR, microfilter cell separation and HPLC protocols, they feature tool-free rotor exchange and an intuitive display for easy operation.
