Laboratory Corporation of America® Holdings today announced that it is offering the COBAS AmpliPrep/COBAS TaqMan HCV Test v2.0. With enhanced sensitivity this quantitative viral load assay for Hepatitis C virus (HCV) enables more accurate assessments of response to antiviral therapy.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced two new solvent delivery systems-Accela 600 HPLC and Accela 1000 U-HPLC. These enable rapid method development, reduce solvent consumption and consequently, enhance laboratory efficiency.
These Accela systems' Force Feedback Control (FFC) features render accurate and precise gradients under all operating conditions and flexibility to quaternary solvent delivery.
Used with Thermo Scientific Hypersil columns packed with 5, 3 and the new 2.4 micron particle diameter, the Accela 600 provides flow rates up to 5 mL / min and a maximum operating pressure of 600 bar with 90 µL of delay volume. The Accela 1000 has a maximum operating pressure of 1000 bar with 65 µL of delay volume.
The Accela PDA improves sample identification with increased sensitivity and has an acquisition rate up to 80 Hz. The PDA's LightPipe technology enables fast separations by employing a 1 cm path length in a 2 µL flow cell. The low level of dispersion in the LightPipe technology allows the flowcell to retain peak shape and chromatographic resolution. The Accela U-HPLC system optimises the performance of sub-2 µm particle columns.
