Detect Previously Invisible Non-volatile Compounds

The new Evaporative Light Scattering (ELS) detector from Buchi is able to efficiently detect all non-volatile compounds, including those that are invisible to other detectors. This is especially useful for purifying natural extracts because of the high amount of non-ultraviolet (UV) absorbing compounds, which were previously undetected by UV/VIS and Refractive Index (RI) using industry […]

The Velocity 14/14R

The Velocity 14 (V14) and 14R (V14R) centrifuges have the flexibility to alternate from micro-volume to medium-volume centrifugation at a maximum speed of 14 000rpm/20,290xg. The V14R incorporates powerful and efficient refrigeration, while the absence of refrigeration in the V14 further reduces its footprint by at least 50% compared to that of the V14R. The […]
