The HPE tower is a horizontal gel electrophoresis system.
Electrophoresis is a process used in the life sciences to separate and characterise proteins using a strong electric field.
In a horizontal flatbed system the gel is a thin layer on an open cooling surface. The HPE FlatTop tower has a highly efficient aluminum oxide ceramic cooling surface, at full load dissipating over 200 Watts of energy using only plain water cooling – no special refrigerant is required.
This cooling enables a higher electric field strength, shorter electrophoresis time, higher resolution, and an increased sensitivity of detection.
The Tower also allows electrophoretical separations in up to 4 horizontal flatbed gels in parallel, useful for 1D and 2D electrophoresis gels where multiple runs are an important demand.
A sophisticated microprocessor-based embedded controller monitors the electric field distribution between electrodes, working with visual and audbile warnings and a multi-level interlock system to provide an industry-leading level of safety.
The BCS Nephelometer is a turbidity meter specifically designed to detect low concentrations of precipitates.
This is of particular use in water turbidity measurements as well as various medical, biological and agricultural assays. The consultants at BCS developed all the electronic hardware and software for this instrument
The NuSep MF10 is a unique instrument, able to separate biological samples by both size and isoelectric point. Equally important, however, is that the technology developed as part of this product is able to significantly reduce the time, cost, and complexity of the IVF sperm separation process. The goal is to make IVF more affordable and available to more families within the community – in fact, a successful birth has already taken place after using this technology.
The primary area of excellence is simplicity, both in the design of the control system as well as the ongoing operation of the device in a lab environment. The single-use pre-assembled separation cartridges remove virtually all of the complex setup required in existing (centrifuge) processes.
On a technical level, the combined size and isoelectric separation process is unique and innovative, representing a substantial leap in the technology available to the proteomic market
