Voyager Pro Analytical

Simplifies complex measurements

OHAUS Corp, Pine Brook, NJ, introduces its Voyager® Pro Analytical and Precision Balances, which simplify complex measurements to provide fast, repeatable results. The balances can measure the difference between initial and residual weights, as well as calculate the density of solids and liquids, and eliminate the need for time-consuming manual calculations and data logging. To minimize weighing errors, the balance’s AutoCal™ standard feature automatically adjusts the balance when it senses a temperature change significant enough to affect the weighing accuracy.

PharmaGard Isolators

Help maximize compounding accuracy

The PharmaGard™ series of Compounding Aseptic and Containment isolators, from NuAire, Plymouth, Minn, have recently been updated with several key ergonomic features. Engineered upgrades to the sharps and waste system utilize individual pull-down-and-out trays, which allow users to independently change each sharps and waste container as it fills. Located under the work zone, the pull-down-and-out feature repositions the container closer to the user, requiring less effort when changing. When replacing containers, the locking mechanism helps create an airtight seal, maintaining an ISO Class 5 environment. A vertical sliding counter balance interchamber window creates a seamless transition when entering compounding materials into the work zone. Other key ergonomic features include an auto-lift basestand, oversized oval glove ports, cool white lighting, and three IV bar locations.
