Thermo Fisher Scientific Launches New Products at American Society for Microbiology Meeting

Incubators and Shakers

TORONTO, Ontario (May 22, 2007) - Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today introduced several new laboratory equipment products designed to improve productivity in liquid handling, cell culture, contamination prevention and storage at the American Society for Microbiology Meeting.

Thermo Scientific Revco® PLUS -86°C upright freezers are designed for high performance with maximum heat removal capacity. Three models provide varying levels of monitoring, reporting and alarms, and are suited for all laboratories that require quick temperature recovery, operational efficiency and productive environment.

The Thermo Scientific AquaTec(TM) water preservation cell provides a highly flexible and virtually maintenance-free solution for the effective prevention of waterborne contamination in CO2 incubators and water baths. The cell is designed to provide up to six months of protection for sample incubation and cell culture by preventing the growth of more than 600 types of microbes without the use of harsh chemicals.

The Thermo Scientific MaxQ(TM) 6000 stackable incubating shaker accommodates two adjustable shelves located above a rotating 18" x 18" platform that will hold up to five 2L flasks. Each shaker features a large glass-viewing window and can be used under the bench or stacked two-high on the floor. Available as incubated or refrigerated digital models, the shaker is ideal for a wide range of molecular biology and cell culture applications.

The Thermo Scientific Matrix Hybrid Pipette is a lightweight manual/electronic hybrid pipette utilizing patented ClipTips® technology, which employs a unique interface where the pipette tip locks or 'clips' onto the Hybrid pipette and can only be released when ejected. This innovation allows for consistent performance with minimal tip insertion and ejection forces, and eliminates loose or leaking tips by ensuring the most secure seal possible.

The Thermo Scientific Finntip® Pocket enables dispensing of nanoliter volumes with manual pipettes. Special tips have a molded inside pocket to allow transfer of compounds. This prevents compound precipitation, conserves valuable compounds, eliminates the need of intermediate dilutions and reduces reagent costs through miniaturization.
