Sensorturn and Sensorturn pro Turntables

For inoculation of petri dishes
WLD-TEC, Göttingen, Germany, introduces the new Sensorturn and Sensorturn pro, turntables designed for inoculation of petri dishes up to 150 mm in diameter. They use touch-free IR-sensor technology, which helps provide simple operation with the movements of the hand—or the units can be operated with an optional foot pedal. They offer flexible start-stop functions or a second-timer control with variable rotational periods from 1 to 25 seconds. For longer applications, the time can be extended to 125 seconds. Sensorturn features a continuously variable rotational speed control with a range of 14 to 110 rpm. Sensorturn pro’s range is 14 to 210 rpm. The control helps provide uniform plating of the petri dishes up to a diameter of 100 mm (optional: up to 150 mm). The device’s stainless steel construction and its flame-sterilizability help ensure sterility.

Autoimmune Vasculitis Assay

For detection of IgG antibodies
Inverness Medical Clinical Products Group, Princeton, NJ, expands its FDA-cleared, multiplex test menu with the addition of a new autoimmune vasculitis assay. The product is for use on the AtheNA Multi-Lyte® test system and on the newly introduced AIMS™ system, which is a fully automated platform. The assay is intended for the qualitative and semiquantitative detection of IgG antibodies to three separate antigens: MPO, PR3, and GBM in human serum. The antigens assist in the diagnosis of autoimmune vasculitis disease, which occurs when the body attacks its own blood vessels. AtheNA is a multiplexed, fluorescent, bead-based system that uses patented Luminex® xMAP® technology. It is designed to simultaneously perform multiple assays from a single sample in one well, and offers a streamlined alternative to IFA and ELISA testing. Intra-Well Calibration Technology™ provides sample-specific calibration, eliminating drift while ensuring accuracy.
