How Donors Trust distributed millions to anti-climate groups

altRecipients included some of the best-known thinktanks on the right. The American Enterprise Institute, which is closely connected to the Republican party establishment and has a large staff of scholars, received more than $17m in untraceable donations over the years, the record show.

But relatively obscure organisations did not go overlooked. The Heartland Institute, virtually unknown outside the small world of climate politics, received $13.5m from the Donors Trust.


Discrete Analysers by Thermo Fisher Scientific

altThermo Fisher Scientific (Finland) has provided solutions for the water and waste water laboratories for over 20 years with the family of AquakemTM and GalleryTM analysers. These analysers utilise discrete cell technology which significantly reduces analysis time. Applications are based on photometric measurements. Easy-to-use analysers are ready for immediate analysis, start-up and shut down protocols are automated and once loaded, they automate all necessary steps, providing a walk-away time from two to four hours.


New PureGas Ensures Exceptional Carrier Gas Quality

altThe new SERVOPRO PureGas gas purifier from Servomex (UK) offers the near-total purification of carrier gases for Gas Chromatography (GC) and other analytical applications.

For a gas chromatograph to perform reliably with high levels of sensitivity, the supplied carrier gas must be of the highest quality. With Ultra High Purity (UHP) gases expensive to bottle and difficult to trans-fill without contamination, the SERVOPRO PureGas enables users to purify gases onsite at the point of use, minimising the risk of gas contamination.


LIMS Versatility Showcased at Pittcon 2013

altIn addition to the universal flexibility and scalability offered by the flagship Matrix Gemini LIMS (Laboratory Information Management Systems), Autoscribe Informatics (UK) will be showcasing Stability Management options for pharmaceutical and food applications, the Environmental Monitoring system and Matrix Express, Autoscribe’s low cost entry level LIMS for smaller organisations. In addition, the Quality Management Suite provides a comprehensive business data management capability and facilitates compliance with ISO 9001 (2008) and ISO/TS 16949 (2002).
