Efficient Analysis of High Boiling Point Compounds

altShimadzu (Germany), one of the worldwide specialist manufacturers of analytical instrumentation, has launched the HS-20 gas chromatography headspace sampler for accurate analysis of an even wider range of volatile compounds with boiling points ranging from low to high. The HS-20 heats liquid or solid samples sealed in a container to a specific temperature, and injects the volatile compounds diffusing into the gaseous phase into a GC or a GCMS. These systems are widely used in the fields of environmental and pharmaceutical applications as well as in materials and food products analysis and forensics. The HS-20 will support these analyses particularly in testing and inspection organisations.

Better Budgets with Construction Software

altKeeping a close eye on project costs is key in the construction industry. For a corporate project owner, better visibility into the budget could be a top priority in the year to come. With advances in software, owners have more options including the ability to manage multiple budgets within a single project.

Take this as one example: A single site such as a retail store can have separate budgets for remodels and other special projects. As such, software needs to be able to manage these distinct budgets.

To meet this need, Systemates, www.systemates.com, Dallas, Texas, recently announced upgrades to its Projectmates software. In Projectmates 12.0, users can manage multiple and distinct budgets within a single project.

Dissolved Species Monitor for Biofuel Research

altHiden Analytical (UK) introduce a new and novel cuvette style interface for the Hiden HPR-40 membrane inlet mass spectrometer (MIMS) series. Specifically engineered for the researcher investigating gaseous species generated by algal photo-responsive reactions, the cuvette is engineered to be both flexible and user maintainable and features inert materials throughout.

Concentric transparent acrylic cylinders, sealed by a removable base and cap, form an inner reactor zone with an outer sleeve, the latter to enable thermally stable water to be re-circulated to maintain a uniform reactor temperature. A magnetically driven impeller, located close to the integrated membrane surface, maintains overall media consistency.
